Expecting Baby Girl {St Charles Newborn Photographer}

This blog has moved to the main photography website.  Please view this post and many others at: St Charles Newborn Photographer | K Thaemert Photography

I’m excited to share a series of two sessions.  It’s fun to meet an expecting couple, photograph, get to know them and then WAIT for the baby to arrive.   I think sometimes I have as much anticipation awaiting the big day as the couple’s own family members.  Today, I’m sharing a beautiful couple at the maternity portrait session and the arrival of their beautiful newborn, baby girl.

Purple was our color of choice for most of the two sessions and such an appropriate choice for baby girl photos.

We also pulled down the brown background for a very classy maternity portrait.  Maternity sessions have so many possibilities.   An expectant mother might bring all of her own clothes; she might bring anything from a beautiful dress to a man’s big white button down shirt or a favorite top.  I also have a variety of fabrics in the studio with which to wrap the mom.  Wraps can either cover the belly or leave it bare.  The lighting in the studio is set so as to show off the beauty of the growing belly while still keeping it modest and hiding areas of “concern”.    I have a number of wraps which cover bare arms and still allow the belly to show.

This expectant dad was extremely fun at the maternity session.  We did have a few laughs and everything was all very relaxed!

Finally, for a clean, beautiful look, we photographed on the bright white background.  It’s hard to believe that soon after, a beautiful baby girl arrived!

And now, I introduce to you their beautiful first born!!  She was such a wonderful little doll.

This next photos are special since the knitted baby cocoon was made specially for her!  I love the colors and as a knit and crochet crafter myself, I really appreciate the love that went into creating it.  As an added bonus, she was extremely content inside the cocoon and posed perfectly for photos!

To schedule your own maternity and/or newborn portrait session, call the studio at 636-947-5956.  Maternity portraits are normally photographed around 8 months and newborn portraits are best photographed before 10-14 days old (the younger the better they stay asleep and pose).  It is a good idea to schedule both a few months prior to your due date.  I am always flexible with moving a newborn session, but cannot guarantee an opening if you are not already on the calendar.

Looking forward to many more baby portraits!
