Baby Eleanor {Mckinney Newborn Photographer}

As a Mckinney newborn photographer one of my main jobs is getting those sweet, sleepy newborn shots. We have some tricks up our sleeve like a nice heated studio, white noise, and swaddling to help newborns fall asleep for the session. Sometimes though we get babies that just worry they are going to miss out on the fun if they give into sleep! Meet Eleanor….one of the most awake but calm newborns I’ve ever photographed!

This adorable baby girl was SO alert but so calm! She just had the sweetest temperament and watched us curiously the whole time. We finished up her session with some family shots and she finally decided to sleep while she was comfy in mom’s arms. This yawning with dad shot though may be one of my favorites of all time!

Hi! I’m Laura! Thank you for visiting my site giving me the consideration of documenting this special time for your family! With over 800 newborns photographed and over 9 years of experience, I can assure you, your little one is in the best hands! Before I was a photographer I was a first grade teacher. I stopped doing that when my oldest son was born and quickly picked up photography as a hobby. Being a first time mom and seeing just how quickly my baby was growing and changing each day I realized the importance of documenting these memories. When they say the days are long but the years are short, that could not be more true! That same baby is almost a teenager now and I am so glad I had photography as a way to freeze that tiny window of time! I once heard someone say that while family photos are important, you can take new ones every year. Newborn photos are a one time thing and once that time is gone you’ll never get it back!
