kylie– 9 days – Infant Portraits

Here’s another beautiful mother to be who opted to take advantage of a complimentary mini maternity session with her little ones infant portraits.  And why not!?  It’s complimentary!  A lot of clients worry that they just won’t like any of the maternity portraits (it’s never happened by the way….) and I always just remind them, you only buy the photographs you like, so no worries!

Now…let’s move on to sweet Kylie.  What a precious little bundle of baby!  She is the younger sister to two fabulous big brothers, Tyler and Nathan.  And I am honored to have had the opportunity to photograph all three of these little ones as newborns.  Yes, I am just that lucky.  Thank you John and Carrie for trusting me with these fleeting moments.

Many clients don’t know that your maternity session (mini and full) and your newborn session can include older siblings.  Of course we want to capture the entire family in photos like these!  For a newborn appointment, I recommend bringing the whole family in two cars, or having someone like grandma come along.  This way, we can photograph the whole family, then sibling shots and then we can have older siblings head home with grandma (or dad) so we can focus on just baby without any stress or extra noise.   A perfect way to capture all the images you want!

Another question I hear all the time….do I need to bring my own props and blankets?  Well…you can, but you don’t need to.  The studio is choked full of hats, wraps and props for baby.  And lots of dresses and wraps for mama too!  More information on the details page here.

caroline – 11 days – Newborn Photography

I have been creating maternity and newborn portraits for over 10 years now…and I never get tired of it!  So many beautiful bumps and adorable bundles.  When I first started, I didn’t offer the complimentary mini maternity with a booked newborn appointment that I do now.  But I wish I would have!  So many moms contact me for newborn photography…but they are reluctant to schedule a maternity session for themselves.  Their reasons vary…but most often, they don’t want to do a maternity session because they feel big and uncomfortable…and sadly, many moms don’t feel beautiful!  Believe me, I know how they feel.  I gained 60 pounds with my first baby…I did NOT feel great.  But I’m so glad I have photos to remember those moments by.  (If only I had had a skilled photographer who had 10 years of experience to pose me in the most flattering ways and use lighting to highlight the beauty and maybe hide some things if necessary.)  If you are pregnant and considering newborn portraits with Barefoot Photography….please oh please, let me talk you into taking advantage of the complimentary mini maternity session.  If you hate every photo we get…no worries, don’t buy one.  But you cannot go back if you regret not taking them.  And…I’ve never had a client hate all of her pregnancy portraits.  Most often I just hear, “I’m so glad you talked me into this!”

I did not have to talk Laura into maternity portraits.  She was excited to capture the moment with adorable Amelia who was preparing to be a big sister.  And brand new baby Caroline was a perfect little model for her newborn photography session.  What a dream!

tween portraits

I photograph newborns regularly.

Six month olds?  All the time.

One year olds…you bet.

4 year olds….sometimes.

8 year olds…not as much.

12 year olds….rarely.

Why is it that we have their portraits done on a regular basis and then…just as they are starting to discover who they are…we stop?  I’m guilty of this too…so you are not alone.  But I want to encourage you to schedule a mini session for your tween.  Any kiddos from 8-12 years old can be scheduled for a mini tween session now!  Is she into dance?  Fabulous…bring the tutu.  Does he love to read, bring his favorite books.  Are they learning an instrument?  I’d love to hear it!  Unless it’s a piano…bring it with you.  Sports, art, a pet…whatever their “thing” is, let’s find a way to make it a memory!

Schedule your tween portraits mini session now for a $39 session fee.  Mini portrait collections are available to get just what you need to capture this moment.  Contact me at kw@photosbykimberly.com to set up a session.

riley – 1 year – Baby Portraits

What an expressive little girl!  Riley just kept cracking us up with all of the faces she was making.  One year portraits are not always easy….they are mobile by this time and not too interested in the lady with the camera.  So there is a lot of chasing and a lot of feeling like “we’re getting nothing…” but they always produce beautiful and fun portraits.  Capturing what makes your little person unique!

Email me at kw@photosbykimberly.com to secure your session today!
I will email you back within 24 hours with session options.

These sessions are not limited to little girls, but if you choose to schedule a session
for the boy in your life, I will not promise anything more than this.
