One Year of Jackson - Cake Smash {Baltimore Maryland Baby Photographer}

As the saying goes when raising children, the days may be long but the years are short. Sleepless night and 2 am feedings give way to baby smiles, coos and laughs, sitting, crawling, first teeth and first steps. So many moments, so many milestones. And in the blink of an eye, just one trip around the sun, your tiny bundle with 10 perfect fingers and 10 perfect toes is a bouncing, babbling, laughing, toddling 1 year old. 

Jackson came to celebrate this huge milestone with me in the studio complete with the cutest little cake made by his mom. Jackson is one of my first Milestone Club kiddos so his cake smash was a little bittersweet because now I won't get to see his big blue eyes every 3 months. (Luckily for me we already have a date for some fun fall photos - couldn't let him go that easy).

I first met Jackson when he was just a tiny peanut. Even then his mom knew she didn't want to miss a moment of his first year. Every 3 months I'd see his cute little face and every 3 months he was doing something new. Watching him grow has been such a joy for me!

Without further ado....the birthday boy!

Isn't he just the cutest?!? Now for some of my favorites from his past sessions. It really shows off how much he's grown! Can you picture these as a fun collage or gallery wall?

10 months - A great age for sitting with confidence, pulling to standing position

Austin ~ 8 days {Baltimore Maryland Newborn Photographer}

I met Austin's family at my fall mini sessions when he was just a tiny belly baby. These guys are fun, laid back and just super easy to talk to so I couldn't wait to meet their newest addition. Austin preferred to be awake for most of his session, but that's ok because he has the most gorgeous eyes! And once he decided to take a short nap, he totally rocked the sleepy poses. 

Big Sister M, the spunky little thing she is, took some convincing to play along with little brother's shoot. Mom told me ahead of time that she was a bit unsure of her new house guest. Luckily I always have a few tricks up my sleeve. ;) She's so bright and playful, it was easy to turn it in to a big game. 

I can't wait to see this sweet family grow!

Ember ~ 8 days {Baltimore Maryland Newborn Photographer}

Some of you may not know this but before I was head #momboss at Jessica Fenfert Photography, I was a labor and delivery nurse. Actually, I'm still a labor and delivery nurse because well, I love newborns, I love birth and I love seeing families made. It's why I love photographing newborns so much. And I think it also makes me a more confident and safe newborn photographer. 

At any rate, my nursing job has afforded me the pleasure of making some wonderful friends over the years, even as we've moved on to other things. Ember's mama is one of those friends. She is the type of person that just exudes light. She is always happy, always kind and always goofy. She is someone you just know is going to be an amazing parent. So when she entrusted me to capture some of her first moments as a parent, of course I was instantly...YES!

Mom and Dad decided to remain Team Green until Baby Ember arrived. Only then did they find out she was a perfect, healthy baby GIRL! When they arrived at the studio the morning of our session all I saw was her thick, dark, curly hair. A bitty bundle of gorgeousness! Ember was a dream baby for her session and I am so honored to be able to give them memories to last a lifetime.

Faith is ONE ~ Cake Smash {Baltimore Maryland Baby Photographer}

What a difference a year makes! It's seems so crazy that the last time I saw Faith she was just tiny little nugget. She arrived over 6 weeks early and was just over 6lbs at the time of our session when she was 3.5 weeks old. Now look at her, chubby thighs and rolls for days! The whole family, including big sis joined and cheered her on while she dug in to her cake.

Scarlett - {Baltimore Maryland Newborn Photographer}

I think Scarlett was one of the most beautiful babies I've photographed (but then again I say that about all the babies, don't I?). She had a perfect head of gorgeous dark hair and clear bright eyes. And two gorgeous, sweet and totally in love parents. She wasn't the sleepiest little girl ever but hello smiling and alert?! Who could ask for anything more?

Tree Farm Mini Sessions {Baltimore Maryland Family Photographer}

Christmas may be over and a new year here but I still have so much to share from our Tree Farm Mini Sessions this year at beautiful Gaver Farm. I saw a lot of familiar faces, it's so amazing to see how much these kiddos grow. And I met a lot of awesome new families as well. It was unseasonably warm (and beautiful) for most of the day. Although we did battle a somewhat crazy windstorm toward the end but luckily got out right before the rain came! Mini Sessions can be a great quick way to update family photos seasonally and I am already looking forward to my Spring Minis!

Liam ~ 12 days {Baltimore Maryland Newborn Photographer}

Liam came to me by way of my mom. His momma is a coworker and friend of my mother's so I was super excited to meet them! Liam had the most beautiful, sweet face and the loveliest parents ever. I was even able to convince Dad to show off his tattoos (really, it wasn't hard - he was game for anything).

Ritchie ~ 8 days {Baltimore Maryland Newborn Photographer}

Ritchie's momma is actually my cousin (by marriage but does it really matter??). I haven't seen her in years, probably decades, but when I heard she was expecting her first and now lived only 30 minutes from me I knew I had to get her in the studio when her little man arrived. When I found out my aunt, who lives a couple states away, was coming to the session as well, I knew it would be awesome. Ritchie was utter perfection, sweet round face, big, beautiful, bright eyes. We were able to capture the perfect mix of sleepy poses and awake shots And it was great being able to laugh and chat and catch up with family.

Ava ~ 20 days {Baltimore Maryland Newborn Photographer}

Sweet Ava brought her whole family to her session including the most amazing big sister. While I will always love creating beautiful images that capture all the perfect newness of you little one, some of my most favorites images are those of snuggling siblings. This big sister knocked her portion of the shoot out of the park and was such a joy to be around.

Cole ~ 10 days {Baltimore Maryland Newborn Photographer}

October was a month of (almost) all boys. And they were definitely some of the cutest! Cole was the smiliest (if that is even a word!) little man. I am pretty sure we got a smile in just about every set up. It doesn't matter how many newborns I photographer, I still get all giddy when they start flashing the grins. They're so fresh and new that I wonder, what must you be dreaming about??

Avery Claire {Baltimore Maryland Newborn Photographer}

Sweet baby Avery with all that hair! Avery's momma is a dear friend of mine who works with me as a labor and delivery nurse so of course, when her new little princess came along we were going to pull out all the stops! It feels like we just did her maternity session yesterday! (Remember her the beach session ?) Avery was soooo good during our photoshoot. She is literally just perfect. We even went outside for a gorgeous garden shot. Congratulations my friend! Can't wait to see her grow up.

Lexi ~ 11 days old {Baltimore Maryland Newborn Photographer}

There is something so magical about watching first time parents. It's a beautiful mix of awe, excitement, novelty and pure enchantment. There are no distractions, all eyes are on this precious baby as they slide into parenthood. This love was palpable during my session with Lexi. Mom and Dad were so clearly enamored with her, I just loved enjoying every moment with them. They are also just the sweetest people on earth and we chatted the whole way through the session like old friends.

Connor {Baltimore Maryland Newborn Photographer}

Connor came to me when he was 3 weeks old but he was still a dream baby. He had fantastic hair and perfect little lips. He also had a pretty awesome older brother who made the session so much fun.

Kit {Maryland Newborn Photographer}

It was so wonderful to meet Kit and see her amazing parents again after our maternity shoot! Kit was an absolute dream for her session, slept almost the whole time and barely made a peep. And just look at those cheeks! I just wanted to smoosh her little face all day.

I love when families bring special pieces to include in their session. This quilt is a family heirloom and Kit looks so snugly sweet in it.

Kit's mama decided on a Hot Air Balloon theme for her nursery. Normally I go for more simple but this seemed so fitting.

Ephrem {Maryland Newborn Photographer}

I've had the pleasure of photographing this family 3 times this year, but this time it was to welcome new baby Ephrem. He was such a little peanut and looks just like his momma.  I can't wait to watch these boys grow!

Hayes {Maryland Newborn Photographer}

Just a few months after his cousin Trey's session, I met little Hayes. Their mamas are sisters and like Trey, Hayes also has two older sisters to look after him. Holidays are going to be so much fun in this family!

Hayes was such a dream during his session. And big sisters, Piper and Lainey, were just the sweetest! They even greeted me at the door with drawings for me. 

2015 Fall Mini Sessions

Fall is almost here, one of my favorite times of year. Tall boots, crisp mornings,  pumpkin spice everywhere, football - I love it all! If it didn't come right before winter I'd love it even more. It's also the perfect time for family photos with all the beautiful colors. This year I am holding two mini session dates in some of Howard County's gorgeous parks. These abbreviated sessions are great for a quick update to your family photos or to use for Holiday cards. There are limited spots available so hurry up and grab one now at jessicafenfertphotography.com/fall-minis
