Lucas and Sophia – One Month Old Twins

Sleeping Twins by Adrienne Zwart Photography - Uniontown, OHBorn at 38 weeks, these two little ones spent a few weeks in the NICU before they were ready for a photo session.  Which brings up something we don’t often talk about in newborn photography circles:  we can photograph babies older than 2 weeks.  Okay, maybe it’s not ideal because babies start to lose some of their flexibility and that means we might not be able to get them into those curly newborn poses.  And it is important that we mention that to our clients so they know what to expect.  But we can still  create absolutely beautiful photos of older babies, too.  Lucas and Sophia are just a month and 2 days in these photos.  See? Perfectly adroable!

I once photographed a baby at 2 months because we had to postpone her session due to family illness. And then we needed to work around summer vacation schedules.  She was more alert during her session, but her portraits were beautiful anyway.  And her mom was grateful that we didn’t try to push through a session when they weren’t feeling well just so we could get the session done in that magic 4-to-10-day window.

I said all that to say this:  When you are interviewing potential newborn photographers, we are all going to tell you that babies photograph best between 4 – 10 days old.   And that’s true for the most part.  But please don’t despair if your baby’s birth story includes a stop in the NICU and delays your session.   I have designed my schedule in such a way to have some flexibility because, let’s face it, babies rarely show up on their due date anyway.  We will make room to photograph your baby as soon as possible once he or she is home from the hospital!

Sleepy Baby {Uniontown, Ohio Newborn Photography}

Can I be honest with you for just a second?  I love newborn photography best of all!  My newborn sessions are actually more physically challenging than my family or senior sessions (there’s a lot of kneeling and it’s 80+ degrees in here) , but capturing these little faces is SO worth it.

And if I’m being super honest, I would tell you that I really do this job for the snuggles!  My kids are so big now and the youngest hasn’t fit on my lap for years. 🙁  So every time a family brings a new baby for portraits, it is just a little piece of Heaven here on earth.

Meet Samantha – Class of 2016

Stunning senior girl session by Adrienne Zwart PhotographySamantha is such a fun, energetic senior!  Even though high school graduation isn’t until this June, she has already started college and is studying culinary arts and photography.  Isn’t that a great combination?  I instantly thought she might want to be a food blogger someday or shoot for a cooking magazine, perhaps.  But surprisingly, she said that newborn photography was her favorite.  So you know we got along great!  She even enjoyed her time in front of the camera which is something a lot of photographers will say makes them uncomfortable.

Snow Day Photo Session {Akron Family Photography}

Winter Family Portrait Session in the Snow with Adrienne Zwart Photography, Akron Family PhotographerBack in August, Dr. Spoonhower told me that he and his wife really wanted to do their portrait session in the snow this year and wondered how that would work. “Oh, that’s easy,” I told him.  “I create a list of people who request wintry photo sessions and when we get a good snow, I start down the list to see who is available.”  I told him to expect a call as early as November.

We then had the warmest winter we have seen in years here in Northeast Ohio. 🙂 By the end of January, I had pretty much given up that we were going to have suitable snow for a wintry portrait session.  And then we had the most glorious snowfall the second week in February.  The kids had a snow day, mom had the day off and he was able to leave work a bit early so we could catch the last bit of daylight.  As a bonus, it was wasn’t bitterly cold and windy outside!

And of course, you can’t pass up a fun snowball fight when the portrait session is over!  I love working with this fun family!Fun Snowball fight to end the family photo session in the snow

 

Would you like to schedule your family portrait session?

I am currently booking for summer of 2016.  Of course, if you want your own snow day family photo session, I can put you on the list for this coming winter.  (Even though this is NE Ohio and the weather can change drastically, I’m fairly certain that spring is here to stay.)  Click on the contact tab above to get started.

Emma – Sitter Milestone Session

Emma at 6 months sitting upEmma’s parents received a gift certificate and used it to purchase a Milestone Session.  What’s that?  I’m glad you asked. 😉  Milestone sessions are shorter sessions just for babies and toddlers that can last up to 45 minutes with outfit changes if the baby tolerates that. Baby milestone sessions can be done at any time, but typically we focus on the big three milestones:  sitting, standing and walking.  Honestly, my favorite are the sitting and standing sessions and that’s just because once they start walking, it’s a little harder to keep them on the set.  🙂 Often parents will opt to do a one year session with a cake smash instead of the walking stage session, just because the first birthday is a big milestone, too.  Those are really fun!Emma at 6 months sitting up

A milestone session focuses on one child, though I do have parents come dressed for pictures, too, just in case.
