Military Families Learn to Relish the Moment | Fort Campbell Newborn Photographer


What a beautiful baby newborn Cole was!  He was just as sweet as can be, calm and content throughout his entire newborn portrait session.  Considering that his Daddy’s deployment to Afghanistan with the Army was just around the corner, I expected the tension to be a little thicker, and Cole to be affected by it.  I found the opposite to be true though.  The family was more focused on relishing the moment, enjoying each other, and attempting to slow down the passing of time.  I enjoyed spending time with them during their session, especially Cole and his older brother Connor.  I can’t wait to watch these boys grow over the next year, while preserving memories as images to share with their Daddy away at war.

Newborn Baby Ryker James! | Fort Campbell Newborn Photographer


Ryker James.  Is that not one of THE BEST newborn boy names ever?  I kinda love it.  Ryker was a newborn photographer’s dream baby – not only was he absolutely gorgeous, but he was also what I like to call a “honeybadger” baby.  {Appropriately nicknamed by his parents}.  Honeybadger babies are the equivalent to winning the newborn photography lottery.  They are just calm, cool, collected and asleep – no matter what position or contraption you pose them in/on.  Honeybadger babies just don’t give a …  DARN.  heh 🙂

Here are some of my favorites from our session, ending with Ryker’s honeybadger DAD caught snoozing.  I guess we know where Ryker gets it from then!
