Maybe it was an omen, but I had a huge influx of maternity + newborn sessions this summer.  I’ve met so many amazing women, and heard so many amazing birth stories.  I’m soaking up everything like a sponge!  It’s really surreal shooting newborns – it’s so hard to believe that only a few days ago, baby Ashlynn was inside of her mommy!  Doesn’t matter how many newborns I’ve shot, each time still trips me out.  Isn’t she just the most precious thing ever?  She has a super cute middle name too:

And the most adorable Yorkie ever!!  Poor guy, he was the only child for over 10 years!  At first, he didn’t want anything to do with his little sister…

But by half way through our session, he totally adored his little sister:

Isn’t she just so precious?  I want to snuggle with her!

Modeling is hard work!  They’re both pooped by the end of the shoot:

And one of my favorite photos:

Welcome to this big world, Ashlynn!  I can’t wait to see how much you’ve grown!

  2. My wife & I will be expecting our first child in a few months. The photos are breath taking. It’s a miracle how life is created. I am counting the days to be able to hold our little one in our very hands. Thank you so much Caroline for sharing. Like always, beautiful work. Congrats.

  3. If I’d been you I probably would have groaned a little when I learned I’d be working with a newborn AND a dog but man, you rocked it! These are amazing!

  4. I am visiting your blog regulary and must say, that every time your photographs make a great impression on me. But this post is so pure and full of love.
    Best wishes,

  5. woops. when speaking of the dog, I meant *he not she. haha. Went back to have a look at the pics again, and realised that you had written HE. sorry!

  6. HOW beautiful!!!! this baby is just so precious, and being a ‘mummy’ to 2 dogs (although quite a lot larger than this one) it’s so adorable to see the little expressions she is giving you. it’s like she is starving for attention! lol. you captured the bub and the dog perfectly. I especially like the one of Ashlynn with the mouth open. so darn cute. Nice work Caroline, love your images.
