Blue Daisy Art Babies: Then and Now

These past several weeks I have REALLY missed photographing those sweet babies. Several of my expectant clients delivered right before the state mandate restricting non-essential business closures, so we have been waiting….and waiting to get those cuties in my studio. A couple clients whose births I was supposed to be there to capture, I had to sit at home and receive texts from them after their sweet cuties were born. It has been hard for everyone, I know. Our world has been changed forever and this time in our lives is one we will not forget.

A couple weeks ago, I asked my former clients to brighten my day and send me an updated image of their babies whose newborn images I have captured over the past 8 years (I started my business 9 years ago, but my first newborn session was in March of 2012.) I LOVED seeing how these cuties have grown, and it’s super interesting to see how my photography skill and style changed as well.

So here I am sharing with you a few of the Blue Daisy Art babies over the past several years….then and now.

Blaire | Springfield Southern View IL Newborn Photographer

I cannot believe that this sweet little angel is now 9 months old already. It seems like yesterday that I was photographing her mama’s maternity session….the first year flies by folks.  When she came in for her newborn session I was so very excited.  With her adorable strawberry hair and pink skin we not only was a cutie, but she was super easy-going, just like her mom and dad.

Kamryn | Springfield Chatham IL Newborn Photographer

After her amazing maternity session in the spring, I was so excited for the birth of Kelli’s sweet baby girl. Her adorable little man Kyler was such a cutie pie and was so excited for his role as big brother and at his sweet sister Kamryn’s newborn session he did not disappoint.   Little Kamryn was a dream for her session, giving me tons of adorable smiles and sleeping soundly as I moved her throughout several different poses and set-ups.

Sloane | Springfield Girard IL Newborn Photographer

Like many of my clients, sweet Sloane’s parents were sent to me via a client of mine.  My business is built on referrals and I am so thankful when my clients suggest me to their friends and family.    When Sloane and her parents walked into the studio I was completely taken back by how gorgeous this sweet little baby was.   Her dark hair and long lashes were so cute and she had the most adorable little lips.   She allowed me to pose her with ease but especially loved being snuggled up in a soft wrap.   What a fun session!!

Hattie | Leland Grove Springfield IL Newborn Photographer

Adorable Hattie’s parents were my birth clients several years ago when their first daughter Coralie was born.  It was such a fantastic experience to be able to capture her birth day and newborn images, so when they contacted me letting me know that they were expecting their second I was elated!   I was blessed when they once again invited me into their lives to capture sweet Hattie’s entrance into this world.   My favorite part of the experience was seeing big sister Coralie meet her sister for the first time, so I knew that when the time came for the newborn session that we would have some fun.  Coralie and Hattie did not disappoint.  Big sister was such a sweetheart and cutie-pie Hattie slept like a dream.   In fact…when the time came for me to shoot a promotional video (a behind the scenes of Blue Daisy Art) I invited her and her mom back!

I hired the fabulous Lydia Steumke to capture a maternity and newborn session and capture the essence that is a Blue Daisy Art experience.  Lydia did an amazing job and sweet Hattie’s mom gave an incredible interview about her experience.  You can check out the video here!
