Hello fellow mothers, my name is Julia and I have a story to share. I am a mother of two beautiful daughters and with each daughter, I have their photos professionally taken during the couple of weeks after they were born. My oldest daughter, Mackenzie (3) had gotten her pictures taken shortly after her birth. It was actually a pretty nerve-wracking experience for me. Not only was I so nervous to travel with my baby, I was scared to have her in someone else’s photography studio and I was afraid of how she was going to be handled.
I also didn’t think I needed a newborn photographer specifically, I thought all photographers were good at all types photography. I was wrong. I wasn’t thrilled with the way the photographer handled and photographed Mackenzie and I swore if I ever had another child that I would look into someone who knew what they were doing. Who knew how to work with a baby who is only a few days old.
A few years later, out comes Samantha. My beautiful second baby has entered the world and it was time to photograph her. I knew I wasn’t going to use the same person as last time so I looked around for local, newborn photographers. I was recommended by a friend to use Fairies and Frogs. I immediately looked for their website and fell in love. The homepage was adorable and it looked like they really knew what they were doing. After reading more about the photographer, Anne Paich, I made an appointment and was beyond excited.
When we arrived for our session the studio was toasty warm, the sets and props that Anne and I had talked about during the planning stage of my baby’s session were ready to go, there were chilled drinks waiting for us and snacks ready for when our tummies got hungry! There was also WiFi we could use and we could take all the pictures we wanted with our phones so that we could share behind the scenes pictures instantly with everyone! My mom in Michigan was particularly thrilled about getting to see all the cuteness that was going on! Anne did not mind at all while I snapped away while she worked so wonderfully with our baby.
When the photographs were finished, I was in tears. They were beautifully edited and the poses looked natural and adorable. It made me want to go back in time and use them for Mackenzie. I also really liked the idea of photographs during pregnancy, not just after, but I guess I’ll just have to wait for the next child! Anyone who is looking for a great photographer for their babies I would recommend Fairies and Frogs. I couldn’t be happier with the pictures! Thank you so much for making my baby girl shine.
