columbia, sc maternity + newborn photography

This summer has been a little different for me- I started what most photographer’s know as a belly to baby package. I had the privledge to photograph three beautiful bellies and three beautiful newborns. Now, I am very new to the newborn scene and it has been a huge learning experience for me but I have loved every minute of it! I love working with repeat clients and the babies were too presh!
Many that know me where surpised that I have shown interest and have taken on newborns. I, admitidly, have always had a slight fear of babies and I never even held a newborn till I was almost 20. I’m one of those oh-my-gosh-I-don’t-want-to-hurt-them-what-do-I-do type people. But thanks to these wonderfil clients and wonderful babies I am much more comfortable and much more in love with newborns.
Here are the belly and the baby sessions I did this summer! Enjoy!

This is Jana and Anthony. I have worked with Jana before (as well as her sister) and I was excited to work with her on her maternity. Both their mother’s came to the session and we all had a good time. Anthony wasn’t too sure about the whole photo shoot thing but I think he warmed up to me after a little while. Baby Eli is the 2nd newborn boy I have photographed and he’s so photogenic! Look at his beautiful hair!

Meet Kelly and Michael. I met them through my sister and was excited when they asked me to photograph their maternity session. It was awesome because they had only told a hnadful of people their baby girls name (they were waiting till she was born to announce it) and I was one of them! I got to keep the secret for almost 2 months and my sister was dying to know the name. Miss. Jenalyn was such a doll and I could literally photograph her perfect cheeks for hours.

Jana and Greg are also friends of my sister and I’ve known them for a few years now. We shot the maternity photos on a super hot day and I think within 45 minutes we were all melting. Their first born, Jesse, came along for the session and did a great job consisdering all the wonderufl distractions the location had. Also, Jana had the most perfect baby bump! Sarah Elizabeth was a dream to photograph. I was able to more with her than any other baby (even though we were all sweating up a storm with the space heater).
