Newborn Clare at The Camera’s Eye

Check out some photos from a recent newborn session with little Clare at The Camera’s Eye! Clare’s mom Rosey didn’t have any specifics in mind for props or themes, so I just went all-out with some of my current fave newborn setups!

Clare slept for an hour and a half straight, making it easy to get all of the shots we wanted. How cozy does she look??? And her parents decided to order birth announcements to celebrate their new addition 🙂

Thanks to Clare’s parents for bringing her to The Camera’s Eye to capture these memories:) Thinking about bringing your little one in as a newborn? Read more about what a newborn session is like here!

Birth Announcements with The Camera’s Eye

At The Camera’s Eye, we adore doing newborn sessions, and we love helping you announce your little one to the world! Rather than having a set of templates to choose from, I work with new parents to custom design their birth announcements, going back and forth on layouts, size, photo choices, and even the finish of the announcement until you have *exactly* what you want. Here are just a few of the mockups for Dexter:


And some for Ellery:

The newborn shoot is a lot of fun, and so is picking out the photos for announcements and other photo products for your home. And an FYI for new parents…did you know you can send announcements to the Pope, Disney characters, and the President…and get a keepsake response? Who knew?! So make sure to order a few extras when you design your announcements with The Camera’s Eye!

Newborn Session with Ellie at The Camera’s Eye

So it’s been nearly….four months 🙂 But I didn’t want to forget to share newborn pictures of Ellie with The Camera’s Eye! You can read Sam’s first-hand account of the session here.

She was nine days old (we did the session on her actual due date!) and, as newborns usually do, slept through almost the whole thing.

And as a bonus…a sample of the birth announcement they ultimately went with, featuring the fall-themed photos from their session 🙂

And as a bonus bonus…her completed canvas cluster, right over the living room mantle 🙂 I made up a few sample cluster arrangements and we worked on it over email:


For yet another bonus…an adorable onesie collage! I love coming up with finished wall art for my clients 🙂


Coming very soon to The Camera’s Eye blog – 3-month photos of this same little munchkin!

A Year of Photos with Baby Gwen!

Meet Gwen! At 6 months old, she is one of my youngest customers but also one of my studio’s most familiar faces! I first shot Gwen at 7 days old. We used that newborn photo session to create birth announcements at The Camera’s Eye.

Gwen received a year’s worth of gift certificates to The Camera’s Eye at her (parents’) baby shower from a forward-thinking relative! We’ve been documenting her first year of life in various photo sessions. We have two left – Crawling Like Crazy and Up, Up, and Away. The following are from the one that I like to call Bare Bottom Baby – for reasons which you’ll see below:

I’ve also been working with Gwen’s parents to create a TON of fun photo products throughout the year, including baby books and baby blocks!

I’ve loved getting to know Gwen and her family through our portrait sessions at The Camera’s Eye! Looking forward to our next sessions in the coming months 🙂
