I think the most special thing about my job as a Baltimore Newborn Photographer is getting to see my previous clients again as their family story progresses and their family grows. Hartley is the brand new sister of Maverick, who I photographed as a newborn (see it here - they look like twins!) and then again at one year (see that here).
Maverick is now a new two year old. He and his new sister Hartley are very close to the age gap of my own two children. I can tell you that a two year gap makes for less sleep, more diapers, and busier days. But it’s also the perfect scenario for creating siblings who are best friends. A closeness to rely on as the the years pass. It’s someone who “gets” all your second grade jokes and jumps into a cardboard box project with equal enthusiasm. The sleeplessness, diapers, and constant work eventually fade away. The friendship of family only grows stronger. I cannot wait to see these two grow together.
I got this incredible wooden stump in the day before I found out that this little lady’s name was going to be Hartley. When I found out her name I knew that I just had to use it. It’s just such a great fit!
For this next setup I was all set to place her in the moon positioned in a different way. At the last minute her tiny leg stretched out and I decided to let it stay there. Many times I like my poses to be perfectly tight so the babes are all squished up, but Hartley had other plans and I’m so glad we went with them!
Hartley didn’t sleep too much for her session, and I love that we were able to capture some awake shots of her. Below she is in a colonial blue setup I got from JD Vintage Props and a headband from Ali Bali Green, both of which are some of my very favorite vendors. Ali now owns The Green Bebe and she offers some great items for new moms – not just photography props anymore! There is just something about a girl in blue that I absolutely love.
Congrats to this sweet family on the arrival of Hartley!
