Baby Finn!||Arlington, MA Newborn Photography

This peaceful little photo is my favorite from Baby Finn's session. Simple, understated, his sweet mouth slightly agape, he radiates calm.sweet baby sleeping peacefullySo, this is Baby Finn! (Yes, as a momma of a Finn myself, I really do admire his parent's taste in names ;-) )

His Papa is downright proud:proud papa holding his new sonHis lips? Downright luscious:luscious baby lips!

His little fingers? Yup. Downright perfect:close up of tiny newborn fingersI love seeing how tiny this little guy is in his daddy's arms. A brand new little human, every miniature detail of his body perfect and worthy of awe.newborn baby so small in daddy's armsHis lovely momma and I marveled (as I never tire of doing!) over the fact that her body put together this person.... truly, astonishing.momma gazing at her new babyWelcome to the world, Sweet Finn.

Leah and her Family||Watertown Newborn Photography

Hi friends! I'm feeling a bit giddy to share Miss Leah's newborn session with you.... partially, because, well, she is a perfect new little human (and I got to spend a good part of a day last week cooing and rocking her to sleep)..... set of two photos - newborn baby yawning and sleeping...and partially because I absolutely adore her family, who I met a few years ago when Leah's big sister had her own newborn session. toddler kissing her newborn sisterWhen I asked how big sister Vanessa was adapting to her new role, the answer was, "Fine! As long as we introduce Leah as *her* baby."toddler with a huge grin sitting on her parents bedLeah's momma wanted to make sure we created a really different look for this session than for Vanessa's, so we went with some bolder and brighter hues, including a favorite scarf of mine that we mcgyvered into a colorful swaddle. set of two photos awake newborn staring at the camera and parents gazing at their newborn babyThis momma of two worked hard (read: nursing gymnastics) to get us a snoozing Leah! We then got plenty of classic newborn portraits before she requested another snack break. set of three photos from newborn sessionLeah, at about 5 weeks, is considered an "older" newborn in the context of newborn photography, and while that means sleepy photos do tend to be more elusive, it also means I am usually able to capture more of little one's emerging personality. black and white photo of newborn awake and smirking at cameraSo there she is, all smirky and delightful, and I couldn't be more overjoyed to share these photos with her wonderful family. So happy for you four!

With so much love,

Estelle has Arrived!||Boston Newborn and Family Session

I could count up the amount of times I've photographed this family, but I'd rather spend the time telling you about how much I adore them. A few years ago, I met them when Sullivan was just a sleepy, smiley little newborn with his own mini guitar. And now, Estelle is here, and has transformed them into the fabulous quad below.....family-of-four-mom-dad-newborn-toddlerI snuck over to their house early last Friday to catch big brother Sullivan before he headed off to daycare. Goofy little imp that he is, the photos of him and baby Estelle are basically brought to you by the magical power of jellybeans.two-photos-toddler-newborn-sisterOnce dad brought the wild guy out to the confines of his carseat, it was time to get some shots of Miss Estelle:  Tiny of the Hour. Little sweetpea snoozed and snoozed, making it nearly impossible for me to be done with the session. (I would have photographed her the whole day if that weren't totally impractical for all involved.)newborn-sleeping-in-lace-swaddleIt's kind of hard to get over her amazing hair, no?sleeping-newborn-girl-vintage-headband-lace-wrap Longtime followers of this blog (Hi, Momma! ) may remember my appreciation of this momma's gorgeous hair and amazing design sense from Sullivan's newborn session a few years ago. Neither quality has gone anywhere..... momma-newborn-daughter-nursery

momma-and-newborn-daughterWhen dad returned he gave us coffees and we handed over his daughter. We wanted to re-create a favorite photo from Sullivan's newborn session and Estelle was quite happy to oblige.newborn-smiling-sleepily-in-dads-handsOh you guys... I am so thrilled for you! And also, for me, because we have two more sessions coming up this year. Let's hear it for First Year Package goodness! Woo-hoo!parents-newborn-in-mirror

And Milo Makes Four||Andover, MA Newborn and Family Photography

Hi Everyone! Here's a brand new little guy for you to meet....... it's Milo! newborn-smiling-in-cozy-knit-hat

newborn-yawning-big

Just a few little many years ago (eh-hem, twenty) I was in theater class with Milo's dad in high school! And now, many years later, Mister Milo is the second baby in this lovely, hilarious, theatrical family. Here he is with big sister Robin... (Robin was this tiny not all that long ago, too! Wild, right?)

I Just Gave Birth, Don't Take My Picture!||Boston Newborn Photography

95% of the time I talk to pregnant or brand-new mommas about their little one's newborn session, they say something to me like, "But I don't have to be in the photos, right?"mom and newborn smiling at each otherNo. Of course you don't. But I am 100% sure that despite how exhausted, and physically not photogenic you may feel, I will be able to capture your beauty following the most miraculous thing your body has ever done: grow a brand new person!set of two photos moms looking at newbornsTruly, I have been photographing newborns for more than five years now, and there is never a photo session during which at some point I am not blown away by the sheer amazingness of what our bodies can do. So you may feel depleted, or like a giant balloon version of yourself. You may be unable to form sentences, let alone brush your hair, but I know that you are amazing, and I see how beautiful you are. And I'm going to show you - I promise.mom-kissing-sleeping-newborns-noseAnd if, -IF- I can't convince you to see you as I see you, you will never have to look at that photo again. But I'm willing to bet it will be one of your most treasured photos of the session. Mommas are beautiful, even if we can't feel it or believe it at times. Love,

Ceilidh
