{Boulder Newborn Photographer} Meet our own Audrey Grace!

Audrey has been such a great addition to our family, and her big sister Chloe has been taking such great care of her too.   Audrey Grace was born on May 24th, 2011, 6lbs 11 oz and 20″ long!  Here are some images from her newborn session when she was only 8 days old!  Call 720.887.4183 to set up your newborn session or email me at shannon@centeraveneuimaging.com

I'm totally in love!

{Boulder Newborn Photographer} Tips for photographing newborns..

You can read more about Audrey’s birth and our transition to a family of four here.  We are so excited to finally meet our little sweet peach, and I was even feeling well enough after her birth to do her newborn session.   I missed out photographing Chloe’s, as I was pretty out of it being a new parent, but this time I’ve even managed to put together an announcement, which you can see below!  I order this one through Tiny Prints, which I love, and if you’re a costco member, you can also receive an additional 20% off!  With every newborn session we photograph, you receive one digital image included with your session fee, which is great for announcements!

Here are some helpful tips for photographing your newborn or you can contact us to photograph your new bundle of joy, as we love babies!!

1. Be sure to photograph them with in the first 10 days, as this is when they are still sleepy, and will cooperate with you putting them in super-cute positions.

2. Either have your home very warm or a blow dryer handy, as the noise and the warmth will put them to sleep.

3. Nurse or feed them right before and during the session, as they’ll drift off into a milk slumber!

4. I picked up some cute props, ie headbands and a basket at Hobby Lobby and I even got a mini pink lounge chaise that is a doggy bed from TJ Maxx. It works perfect for the itty-bitty ones.  Plus, it was only $30 on sale!  So check out your local hobby store for some cute things for your shoot.

{Boulder Family Photographer} Four Generations of beauties…

She’s finally HERE!!  We are so thrilled to introduce to you our newest addition to our family, Audrey Grace!  I am very thankful for a healthy little RED HEADED baby girl.  Being a red head myself, I’ve always wanted a little red headed daughter, and it looks like I got my wish :) YEAHHH!  See below.

The transition to our family of four is going smoothly and Chloe is such a great big sister.  My mom was out for 10 days, which was a great blessing along with the amazing support from our friends who have been making us some delicious meals!  Thank you!

You can really see her red hair here! I had a great labor and delivery, despite having mild preclampsia and being induced 2 weeks early. I was happy that she was exactly a pound more than Chloe was and has also been a great nurser too.

We tried to get a 4 generation picture when Chloe came back from staying with my family for a week, but she was pretty exhausted, so this is what we ended up with.

My mother and Grandmother are stunning beauties, so are my little girls, despite the crying. This image one might have been the best one. We wanted to honor my Grandmother, see L, so we used her name as Audrey's middle name, Grace, which I love!

Here is the one when Chloe was a newborn! I can't believe she was ever that small.
