The Greatest Gift | Winston Salem Newborn Photographer

It’s the time of year for giving gifts to those we love.  I have been smiling as I package order after order to send out to clients, imagining the smiles they will create when loved ones are given the gift of beautiful, custom photographs.

It is especially heart warming when I am able to capture families who have been given the greatest gift at this time of year…a new addition to their family.  Newborns are special and treasured at absolutely any time of year, but during the holiday season they just seem to add to the magic.

It was my pleasure to capture a newborn boy and girl recently and designing custom holiday cards and gifts for them to share with their loved ones featuring their images definitely added to the magic of the season for me.

Meet Miss L.





What I remember most about Miss L’s session was the beautiful connection between baby and mommy.  Can’t you just see the instant and intense love of a new mother on her face?



Meet Mr. J.



What I remember most about Mr. J’s session was how helpful his daddy was during shooting.  Let’s face it, the idea of custom newborn photographs is most often mommy’s and sometimes I wonder if dad’s really “get it.”  But Mr. J’s dad was right there to lend a hand during this session and was so willing to do whatever it took to create beautiful images his new son.  He carried heavy props, knelt on his hands and knees to spot during poses, helped me put together and break down flooring…..anything at all that I needed during the session.  Thanks to J’s family for “getting it.” :)



I’ll leave you with these beauties for a while as I take my own greatest gifts to the happiest place on earth.  I am planning to be back for a special post on Christmas Eve featuring photographs of my own family.  Stay tuned!
