The story behind this session…

All babies are unique, not only in their personalities but also in their appearances.

This adorable baby boy was born with something that not many of us have……….a 6th toe on his right foot. Now how cool is that!!!! Talk about unique right!

When his Mom told me, at first I thought she might be pulling my leg, only because I had no idea this was even possible, and also because I had just finished posing his tiny little feet and hadn’t noticed anything out of the ordinary.

I was, and still am, totally amazed by this. It’s hereditary and has been passed down through their family for generations, also very cool!

I absolutely loved that Mom was all for documenting this amazingly unique quality that her sweet boy was born with. For in time, it will be surgically removed, and will be all but a memory had it not been for her willingness to capture it.

Here you can clearly see his sixth toe on his right foot, and how it looks so perfectly in line with his other toes, as though it's meant to be there.

Even as I made my way through the editing of this session it really didn't stand out to me at all.

I made certain to document all of his features, as I would any other newborn, and let's face it, I love using my macro lens!

I loved how this pose showed his unique feet!

I was so taken by his beautiful face that I didn't focus on much else when I first laid eyes on him.

I made sure to keep his feet open from the wrap as this unique quality had to be documented as much as possible.

That perfect profile was my initial distraction, no doubt! That tiny little nose, the way his cheeks fall almost as low as his chin. Swoon worthy little face I tell you!

Being a lover of baby feet to begin with, I always tend to overshoot in this area. You can just imagine how many different angles I captured of his unique feet.

My love of photography became heightened after the birth of my first child. My inspiration stems completely from him and the beautiful baby he was. I wanted to document every fleeting moment, save it in time, and over the years I’ve done just that!

I opened my photography busy 9 years ago and have dedicated this time to learning, sharing, and becoming a well rounded photographer so I may document your newborn in the most natural, organic way as possible. During this time I have also been recognized as an award winning photographer with the NAPCP association.

Capturing newborns in their first few days of life, and documenting their growth over the years has given me an incredible amount of joy!

My passion for newborn photography has become a big part of who I am. It’s certainly not just my job, or my hobby, it’s how I choose to spend my life……documenting yours!
