It was a treat to have this family of six in the studio for Hunter’s newborn session. His older sisters (ages 2, 4, 6) were such good helpers with him and loved to give him baby snuggles. They are all huge Harry Potter fans so of course we had to do a Harry Potter set-up. The full gallery had a wonderful mix of full family, siblings, just mom and dad with new baby, Hunter by himself in the themed set-ups as well as timeless and classic white.
Last Fall I met Heather and Ross to take some anniversary pictures including their two fur babies. The anniversary session turned into a pregnancy announcement session! I couldn’t wait to see them again this spring. Little Marshall arrived three weeks early but he was ready to be here. 10 days after he arrived he was in the studio for his newborn session. As always, I have so many favorites from his session but I think the ones of him with a quilt his great grandmother made for him nears the top.
It feels like just yesterday that Delaney was in the studio doing her newborn pictures. Now she’s a big sister to tiny baby Olin. It’s been fun to watch her grow up over the last couple years and now to see her as a loving big sister.
2 year old Fiona came into the studio with her new baby brother. Tiny Owen was the sweetest baby during his newborn session and Fiona was the best big sister to him. The new family of four loved to snuggle and it was adorable to see mama with her two babies.
For the third year running, Rachel Manzke Photography made the best maternity photographers in the Madison area list on Expertise.com. It’s an honor to be listed with such talented photographers in my area and I’m thrilled I could be listed as one of the Sun Prairie Photographers on the list of best maternity photographers in Madison for 2019!
Little baby Nash came into the studio for short newborn session at just 6 days old. His parents opted to do a short newborn session which meant we just focused on Nash and didn’t do any pictures with the parents. It was perfect for them so they could sit back and relax and still get beautiful pictures of their baby to cherish forever.
Nash’s mom asked for natural and clean set-ups for him. These are always my favorite. We started with bright white tucked in poses and then went to a couple set-ups to wrap him up when he woke up. His little smirk while in the little hammock was perfect timing.
Madeline joined me in the studio just shy of 2 weeks old. She surprised her parents with an early arrival and is the cutest little 5 1/2 lb newborn baby girl. We did lots of soft pinks during her session and since we were just a couple weeks before Valentine days I decided to do a couple cute heart set-ups for this rainbow baby.
Little 9 day old Lyla came into the studio with her soon-to-be 2 year old big brother. It was fun to meet this family of four and capture this time special time for them.
11 day old Violet is probably the smallest newborn I’ve photographed. She was born a month early, but don’t let her size fool you. She’s one strong and healthy baby girl. Her mom and dad from DeForest are just smitten over her, and I don’t blame them one bit.
