Last Day of MOvember, Newborn Baby Style! | Clarksville Newborn Baby Photographer


newborn twin boys wearing mustaches for movember

I have to admit – this was the first year that I heard of MOvember at all.  The month long event takes place each November and involves men (possibly some women?) growing out and sportin’ moustaches to “change the face of men’s health” and raise awareness about men’s health issues.  A handful of clients showed up to their sessions this month with new (and temporary) moustaches for the event.  It was fun to see the participation spread to people of all ages.  When newborn twins Ethan & Eli came to visit me for their newborn portraits, I was tickled pink to learn that Mom brought along a few costume type moustaches for the baby boys to wear.  She explained that her dad was an infamous man known for his ‘stache, so she wanted to photograph his grandsons rockin’ their very own.

Twin newborn babies and thei mustaches

I’m not sure about you, but I can already see the resemblance!  Apparently the newborn twin boys’ picture was a hit because it was featured over at Best Newborn Photographers | Baby Pictures this week too.  How fun!  I can’t wait to share the rest of Ethan and Eli’s twin newborn portraits with all of you.

Did you rock a ‘stache for MOvember too?  Show your support in changing the face of men’s health, and share your moustache picture on the Facebook Fanpage wall today!

Mrs. Danielle and Kylie.


Kylie’s first teacher (for pre-K) was truly a blessing.  Mrs. Danielle consistently worked to help Kylie with the struggles she was up against.  She went above and beyond to make her feel special, and smart.  Kylie would come home and play school – dressed up as Mrs. Danielle with barbies, babies, and stuffed animals as students.  Kylie LOVED Mrs. Danielle.  When it came time to make her teacher a birthday present, we put together a homemade “book”.  Considering that Kylie’s main delay was motor skills (which involved writing/drawing) we knew that Mrs. Danielle would treasure the gift as much as we treasured her gift to Kylie – patience, persistence and love.  The pages were simple questions written by me about school or their class or favorites of Kylie’s.  I would write out Kylie’s answer, and then she would draw it.  One page read, “What does Mrs. Danielle look like?” and Kylie’s answer was “she’s so pretty and she’s gonna have a baby in her belly.”

I will admit that I was initially embarrassed because Mrs. Danielle was clearly NOT pregnant.  I even considered tearing that page out.  I remembered that she knew Kylie’s heart and would know how Kylie intended it.  Newborn babies are frequently little guests in our home, and Kylie absolutely LOVES babies.  Mrs. Danielle knew that I was a newborn baby photographer, so I was sure to bring that up again when we gave her the book for her birthday late last spring.  I wanted to be sure she remembered and wasn’t offended by Kylie’s drawing.

Shortly after, the school year ended and the summer flew by.  Kylie still talked about Mrs. Danielle often, and still played “school”.  Fall came around, and off to Kindergarten she went and this time to a different school.  She was one SAD little girl to not be in Mrs. Danielle’s class anymore, and not even at the same school!  I kept saying we would go visit “one day”, but the time never came around and one day turned into some day…

You can imagine my surprise recently when I received an email from Mrs. Danielle!  I thought to myself, I really need to take Kylie to see her soon!  I opened the message and after reading the greetings and how is Kylie, etc, I couldn’t believe my eyes.  Mrs. Danielle was contacting me to book a newborn session – she was expecting a boy and due in January!!!   I literally read the message multiple times – I couldn’t believe it.  Mrs. Danielle was just as surprised, and even had a mobile picture of the page from the book Kylie made her saved in her phone.  Apparently she had no idea she was pregnant before, no one did!  Well, except Kylie.

I was tickled pink (well, blue) for Mrs. Danielle and couldn’t wait to bring Kylie to SEE for herself what she hoped for Mrs. Danielle was true.  I told her I was taking her to see Mrs. Danielle and that there was a surprise.  We waited by the playground for the pre-K class to come out, and as soon as Mrs. Danielle came out the door Kylie saw her.  “She has a baby in her bellllllyyyyyyyyy!!!!!”  she screamed, and ran to her.

I’m so blessed to be able to witness little miracles like this every day<3
