Rainy, River, and Ross celebrated their birthdays in June and I was honored to capture their sweet smiles in my home studio. River and Ross were the first set of newborn twins I had ever worked with and had the sweetest dispositions then--and even more so now! :)
Their big sis, Rainy was very excited to have her portraits taken too and was a big helper during the session. Her genuine, sweet disposition shines through in every single portrait!
As an elementary teacher by trade, I work very well with young children and they quickly warm up to me during the session, allowing me to get natural expressions and smiles. I want parents to see their child's personality shine through in every image so it is very important to me that I connect with their children during their time with me!
Kids at this age are always ON THE MOVE and I especially love to capture them as they are crawling or sometimes walking toward me!
These siblings share a sweet bond. Loved watching Rainy interact with her little sis and brother.
Had to get one of the twins in one of the same crates I photographed them in as newborns!
So much squish!
River was also on the move, though not quite as fast as her twin brother! :)
I send out a portrait questionnaire to get to know my clients and their children before they step into my studio. One of the things their mom and dad mentioned was their love for books so we HAD to get a few of them with some of their favorites!
Those cute, chubby legs. LOVE!!!
It's fun to individually frame and display their little one spelling out the number of their birthday!

Cake smash sessions are all the rage nowadays. Parents want to capture their child's first experience eating cake, which can be quite amusing and definitely fun to capture! I've found that some babies dig right in, while others are more cautious and not as comfortable getting messy. It's cute to see how they will respond. Each baby is so different! I love working with babies and especially look forward to these sessions! I always start off by capturing images of them in mom's favorite outfit or two, then some of them in their "birthday suit" which is adorable, then we finish with the cake smash photos.
I know they'll get really messy when they do this part so this is always the last set of photos we do! We work as long as baby is comfortable, capturing all of their cute expressions and their tiny features that change in the blink of an eye (tiny feet, messy little hands, eyelashes, etc).
Sometimes parents do not prefer to do the cake smash, but still want to capture their little one's milestone birthday. I have a wide selection of natural looking backdrops and props to create beautiful first birthday images you will love.
This little guy had the cutest personality and even posed for me! :)
As you can tell, he had a lot of fun during his session!
If you or someone you know has a baby that is turning one, be sure to send my information along so I can capture this special time! As always, thank you for visiting my site and taking a look at what we've been busy doing at Kathy White Photography. I look forward to hearing from you soon to plan YOUR child's birthday portraits!
Hats off to cake smash sessions! I think Lincoln approves! ;)
I first met this sweet family a couple years ago for a family portrait session. A few months ago the mom contacted me that she was having her third child, a boy, and would love to have maternity and newborn photos done!
I was so happy to hear that she wanted maternity photos done. Many moms opt not to, often telling me they don't feel very beautiful or don't like the way they look while pregnant. I think pregnant moms are absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!! Not to mention, I've learned a few posing and lighting techniques that will make my pregnant moms LOOK and FEEL beautiful! Here's a favorite from their maternity session in Union Bridge, MD--the light was absolutely gorgeous, just before sunset, which is the time I recommend for beautiful portraits!
If you're on the fence about having maternity photos done, hopefully after reading this you'll reconsider! Isn't she stunning?!!
A few short weeks after their maternity session Tara contacted me that her precious boy, Wyatt had been born. Here are a few of our favorites from this special newborn session. His little smile just melted my heart!
Capturing moms and dads and siblings together with the new baby is very important to me as well. I do not charge extra for this, in fact, I strongly encourage we do them!
My style has evolved to be more natural and organic so as to create images that will be timeless and not become "outdated" in a few years. I love the position of his little hands in this one below!
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website and view these images of beautiful baby Wyatt. I hope you will consider me for your maternity and newborn session! If you know someone who is having a baby, please send my information their way! I am so excited to continue to grow this part of my business and have worked very hard to specialize in newborn photography. It brings me great joy to capture moments like this for young families and is what I am most passionate about!
