Newborn Photography || St. Cloud, Minnesota

Attempting to edit newborn and family photo sessions in time for holiday cards, personal photos for photo gifts, and approximately one-million hours spent hunched over our own Christmas cards has left my back in a sad state.  Totally worth all the pain though, because I get to photograph the cutest children.

Such as this darling newborn.

I tend to do my errand running in Maple Grove instead of St. Cloud, though Buffalo is situated right between the two.  Every time I do a photo session in St. Cloud, however, I question why. The drive up is more peaceful, the area is stunning, and I always enjoy my time in the city.  But, alas, old habits die hard.

I digress.  Meeting this baby was delightful. The tininess of newborns always astounds me and getting to hold them tops the list of job perks for the family photographer. 

Speaking of perks, don't even get me started on the incredible joy of the newborn to one year photo package.  Watching these newborns grow into one-year olds and families adapt to a unique child is amazing. And, there is something so special about photographing in client's homes to capture it all.

Between lifestyle family photography and homeschooling, I think I have the best jobs.
