Newborn and Baby Photography

Newborn photography is a favorite here at Frances Photography where we love to capture cute images of baby photography from Denver to Boulder and around the globe.

Newborn Photography Denver: Brooklyn Woodward

Newborn Photography Denver:  The Woodwards are one of my favorite families to photograph and I couldn’t have been happier for them when I found out they were expecting their second baby girl!  Just like we did with their first born, Madilyn, Brooklyn is going to get her very own set of babies first year photos and coffee-table book done with me this year.

I fell in love with baby Brooklyn instantly!  She is so tiny, so perfect, and just like her momma, daddy, and big sis, beautiful to the core.  I love doing round two of babies first year with my clients because I also get to see the big sister (or brother) for another year every few months since of course I always want to include them in some of the photos with their new baby too.  :-)  Madilyn was so cute while I was photographing Brooklyn.  She wanted to be with us the whole time and played in Brooklyn’s crib with her stuffed babies and chattered away at us like a three dollar radio.  It was hilarious and darling.  I was literally having flashbacks to her newborn session, which wasn’t all that long ago (and feels kind of like yesterday!)

I’ve said it before about this family, but I have to say that I LOVE going to their house and seeing my photos lining the walls in every room of the house.  From Mike and Steph’s engagement, to their wedding, to the maternity session with Madilyn, to Madilyn at all stages of her 1st year of babyhood.  And now, another room will get filled with the newest addition and more family photos.  It makes my heart happy to know that my clients walk past my images of the most precious and important things in their lives every single day.

Thank you Mike and Stephanie for your continued loyalty and I will be looking forward to seeing you all again in a few short months!


Colorado Newborn Photographer: Connor Finch

Colorado Newborn Photographer:  This photo shoot was given as a baby shower gift to Jeanna and Steve from a mutual (and very dear friend) of ours and I couldn’t have been more excited about it!  I have known Jeanna and Steve for years and I have been so excited for the day that they finally had a baby.  And man, that baby boy is as handsome as handsome baby boys get.  I fell in love with him on the spot!  When I met him at his newborn session he was literally already smiling, and it took a matter of seconds for him to pretty much melt my heart.  Jeanna’s twin sister, Jennifer, was also in town to spend time with her new nephew so I was able to get not only baby alone and baby with mom and dad, but baby with his favorite Aunt Jen too!  We had so much fun and we even sang a few songs together to keep Connor calm.  Apparently he already takes after his mother’s love of music and theater.  We sang “My favorite Things” from the Sound of Music about five times and he was all ears.  It was hilarious.  A) because we all knew all the words and B) because it actually worked!  I’m going to remember that trick some day…

Jeanna and Steve, I am so thrilled for you and so happy to help you document your beautiful son’s life this year and for years to come.  You are beautiful people and no doubt are going to be absolutely fantastic parents!  (You already are!)  Thank you for inviting me into your home and for trusting me with such a special time in your life.  I loved seeing you at his 3 month session too.  I hope I get to see you again at 6 months, 9 months, one year, two years, and every year from here on out!  You are special friends and I love seeing you both glow with the happiness that little Connor has brought to your lives.  XOXO

Garet 6 months: Denver Baby Photography

Denver Baby Photography:  Not all the babies doing my babies first year collection come from past wedding clients.  At this point in time, the word is getting around and I am starting to meet couples with babies who heard about me from other friends of theirs that were my wedding and babies first year clients.  I love getting personal referrals because it’s like the trust is already built in.  Rebecca, Will, and baby Garet have been so wonderful to work with and I am so happy that they were sent to me!!  Rebecca and I share the same birthday and from the day we met, we were like long lost soul sisters.  Crazy but true!  We have already done maternity and newborn photos, 3 month photos, and now, 6 month photos.  The nine month session is right around the corner and it’s hard to believe, but this gorgeous little red head is going to be one before I know it!

Garet is just the cutest little peanut ever!  She doesn’t always want to smile for me, but I honestly think that’s because she is too smart for her own good.  That camera comes out and her little mind starts racing…  What is that thing?  What are you doing? Who are you?  Why are you making me change my outfit so many times?  This is weird.  You are weird.  I don’t think I like this.  Ha!  The good news is Garet is adorable when she smiles, when she cries, and in every mood in between.  She actually oozes cuteness.  Those big blue eyes are just full to the brim with beauty and intelligence (not shocking given the incredible genes she was given by mama and daddy) and as I have gotten to know her this year, I have a feeling we are going to be friends.  I love her spunk.  I love her intelligence.  I love her eyes and hair.  And, I love her parents!  Seriously, just LOOK at her!  What’s not to love??  Exactly….  you just keep on being you baby girl and I will capture and document you any day, any time.  Just tell your momma to call me.  Kisses and see you soon!

Colin Cotsamire: Denver Baby Photographer

Denver Baby Photographer:  One of my favorite things about connecting with my wedding clients is that I am generally invited back into their lives when they decide to add to the family!  Such is the case with Tracy and Justin, who I had the pleasure of getting to know during their engagement session and on their wedding day back in 2012.  When they found out they were expecting, Tracy was so excited about booking my babies first year collection and I was too!  Now I get to see the Cotsamire’s every three months this year to capture baby Colin grow into the little man he is to become.  I know I say it a lot, but I really do fall in love with my clients- All. The. Time.  Maybe that’s what keeps my creative fire burning because not only do I get to be a special part of a couples lives by capturing one of the most special days in their relationship (the wedding day!) but because I know that when I really do connect with them, and help them to see what they felt that day, I am generally welcomed with open arms forevermore, and I LOVE that feeling!  It’s like I have known Tracy and Justin my whole life.  And now, I really will know baby Colin his whole life, starting from when he was less than two weeks old!

Every time I see this gorgeous little family on my calendar I am excited!  We talk, we laugh, I take photos, we play with the dogs, we laugh some more, I take more photos, and then I get to hold the baby.  It’s my reward every time I do a baby photo shoot.  When it’s all said and done, my line is… “now give me that baby!” And I hang around a little longer just to soak up the baby love.  I have so many babies I love, it’s truly hard to keep track of them all.  I never imagined that becoming a wedding photographer would turn me into a baby photographer, but that is exactly how my business has evolved.  It’s like clockwork:  We meet.  We connect.  I photograph them.  I fall in love with them.  They fall in love with me.  They get pregnant.  They call me back into their world for more…. It has happened over and over and over….  and I am so thankful!

Tracy and Justin, THANK YOU for being another loyal and lovely couple that I have fallen for over the years.  You both, your silly puppies, and your darling son are always bright spots on my calendar!  Muwah!  See you again soon!  For now, here are my favorite photos from the newborn and the 3 month sessions.
