Northern Colorado Newborn Photographer | Photos Make Memories Last

Welcome to my Northern Colorado Newborn Photo Studio Taylor!

Taylor recently came to my Loveland studio for his newborn photos. A lot of newborns sleep right through their newborn photo session. Not Taylor! Look at that eye contact. Newborns usually can’t see very far when they are so new. Typically, they won’t look at the camera and if they do their eyes are crossed or they are winking. I can’t get over how alert he looks for being so new.

Newborn and Sibling Photos

Look at these two! They both were so amazing. It is always so much fun to see how the older siblings are with their new baby. She clearly loves him so much!

These are definitely the kind of moments that we are going to look back at in 5, 10 or 20 years and wish we could have them back to relive again. Luckily, they will have these photos to make the memories more vivid and the details unforgettable.

Big Sister Gets the Spotlight

One of the first things I learned when I met this family is, big sister was born during the lockdown for the pandemic. That means there were no photographers that were working when she was a newborn. She did not get to have newborn photos done. This was sad and disappointing for a lot of parents that had babies during that time. I know that there is no way to go back and fix this but giving her the spotlight for just a few minutes during her little brother’s session is a small start.

Newborns Change So Fast

If you are a parent, then you already know, babies change so much in so little time. It is simultaneously amazing and heart breaking to watch. You really only get to have a newborn for about 2 months. Photographing babies during this time means so much to me. I want parents to be able to look at their baby’s photos and remember what it felt like to hold that sweet little baby.

Newborn and Family Photos

There is just something special about creating the first family photos for parents. It never gets old. Seeing parents with their new baby is so fun to watch and photograph. I love that I get to be the storyteller for this brief, beautiful moment.

My favorite way to view photos is in a slideshow. Enjoy!

Thanks for coming into the newborn studio Taylor! I had the best time taking your photos.

Colorado Newborn and Family Photos | Baby Boy, You Are Loved

Welcome to the newborn photo studio Sullivan!

Sullivan recently came to my Loveland photo studio for his newborn photos. He was so good for me! I couldn’t have asked for a better newborn to photograph.

Newborn and Family Photos

The day of Sullivan’s photo session, his parents weren’t sure about doing family photos. A long night with a new baby will do that to you! I am so glad that they went ahead and did the family photos anyways. Look at the pure joy and excitement from his parents. You can almost feel the emotion, just by looking at the photo.

I love photographing parents with their first baby. There is truly something special about creating the first family photos for parents. It never gets old. Seeing parents interact with their new baby is so incredibly sweet to watch.

Trouble Free Toddler and Newborn Photos

Trouble Free Toddler and Newborn Photos

Free Guide for Parents and Newborn Photographers

Fast, Fresh and Friendly- It’s not just Hot Dog on a Stick’s motto, it’s also the 3 F’s of trouble-free toddler and newborn photos. I know you are curious… Yes, I worked at a Hot Dog on a Stick when I was a kid. Funny hat and all! That is a story for another day though.

Parents often worry about how older siblings are going to do for photo sessions. Let’s dive in to the 3 F’s of toddler and newborn photography so we can get amazing photos from those tricky toddlers and tiny newborns.

Fast

I’m sure it’s no surprise to you, that toddlers can have tiny attention spans at times. They can go from having fun, to total melt down in a matter of moments. That is why it is so important to move fast when photographing toddlers. As soon as you have the image you were after, it’s time to move on to the next set.

I find it is very important to give the older siblings a break while you are safely getting the newborn ready for the next pose. It is kind of like an on off switch. When the switch is off, you can safely pose the newborn while the parents are keeping an eye on their older sibling. When the switch is on it is time to MOVE. Get that toddler close but with safety in mind.

Fresh

Keeping things interesting and always changing is super important when photographing toddlers. This can be as simple as changing the pose or switching tools. Tools? Peek-a-boo, bubbles, tickle flower, flying monkeys, toys from home, there are so many things that can be used to make the photos interesting for older siblings. At my photo studio, I have Waldo the reindeer. He is a festive fella that squeaks. He knows the funniest tricks! Even on the best of days, Waldo is only funny for a little while. When it stops being funny, that is when I know it is time to try another tool/trick. Keeping things always changing will make for interested toddlers.

Friendly

Keeping things friendly and light is probably the most important part of doing newborn and toddler photos. Toddlers and babies are incredible and can sense different feelings in the room. They can feel stress, frustration and anger. Luckily, they can also feel excitement, happiness and love. Let’s talk about the different ways to keeps the session light and friendly.

We all know how excited everyone one is to meet the new baby; I make sure the toddler knows how excited I am to meet them! As soon as I meet big brother/sister for the first time, I start making the session very much about them. I say things like; “Wow! Is that YOUR new baby?” “Are you a big brother/sister now?” This is such a special time for your family and older brother/sister should also feel special.

With 3 boys of my own, I know how important it is for older siblings to feel involved. I love coming up with ways for them to “help” and have fun. You can ask the older sibling to grab diapers, wipes, maybe even a small prop. If the parents can’t decide between two items, ask the sibling! Getting them involved will make them feel like they are an important part of the photo session.

I hope this guide was helpful. Just remember, keep it Fast, Fresh and Friendly and you will end up with the most beautiful toddler and newborn photos!

With Megan Grove Photography, we always have so much fun, getting great sibling photos is never really a problem!

Loveland Newborn Photo Shoot | Baby’s First 4th of July

Welcome to the newborn photo studio sweet little Stevie!

Stevie recently came into my Loveland newborn photo studio for her first photos. She burst into this world a little early but oh so perfect. She was born just a few weeks before the 4th of July. At a little over 4lbs, she was definitely one of the smallest babies I’ve photographed. She may be tiny, but she was absolutely amazing for me! From blanket poses to the family poses, she was relaxed and sleepy through it all.

Newborns Change So Fast

If you are a parent, then you already know, babies change so much in so little time. It is simultaneously amazing and hard to watch. You really only get to have a newborn for about 2 months.
