Hampton Roads Newborn Photographer, Amanda Stewart, presents baby Mayzie.

“Mayzie is sleepy its time for bed”. That line enters my head every time I look at little Mayzies images. An adorable name from a story I have read my two girls every night for years. At 6 days new Mayzie was in fact very sleepy. She was such a dream to photograph and what a head of hair!

hampton roads top newborn photographer amanda stewart baby girl photosI refer to Mayzie’s session as peaches and cream. Moms pre-session survey mentioned her love of neutral cream tones and light pinks or peaches. These colors suited baby perfectly. As much as I love a naked baby, using simple wraps, headbands, or hats really adds variety to a session. Most people know my style as very monochromatic. I love everything to blend together, leaving only baby to stand out. This floral headband was perfect and not to overwhelming in that gorgeous dark hair. Mayzie wasn’t the only perfect model in the studio this day. Big sister Leila was not only beautiful but her silly personality really shined. It was funny when mom showed me a previous Facebook post of Leila NOT wanting to go to the session. Once I got her in front of that camera she warmed right up. Sibling shots are one of my strengths during a session. Little kids always seem to think I’m silly. Look how happy this little baby is in mom and dads arms! She was so sleepy she even let me put an adorable outfit from my client closet on her for family photos. And baby makes 4! What a beautiful and fun family. I can’t wait to see more of them as baby Mayzie grows. Booking our Birthday bundle plan is a great way to capture baby’s first year.

Amanda Stewart, Newborn Photographer Hampton Roads Virginia, presents baby Julianna…Newborn Photographer Hampton Roads Virginia Baby Julianna

Sugar, spice, and everything nice: that’s what this little girl is made of. Julianna and her parents came to see me at my Virginia Beach studio when Julianna was just 10 days new. The first baby of this family of three, and she is as happy as can be already. Julianna slept through her entire session and was modeling away. Mom requested purples and greens long before Julianna was even born and these colors were just meant to be. Doesn’t she look stunning on both?hampton roads newborn photographer julianna

Just look at these sweet and tiny details. Capturing baby details is a must. They grow so fast that it is hard to remember just how small they were.
newborn photographer hampton roads detail photographsI could see so much of both mom and dad in Julianna. She was the most perfect representation of them both. Just look at the love on these new parents’ faces. This right here is why I love my job so much.

So many smiles occurred during this newborn session. I can’t force a smile, but I sure do know the cues, and I always have my camera ready to capture them.

Below is one of my new favorite poses. Baby is wrapped up snug and peeking up, as comfortable as can be. Of course safety is always first: what you don’t see is my assistant’s hand that was very close by. It was removed from the photos during the editing process.

Purple is her color.

HRVA Newborn Photography by Amanda Stewart is pleased to introduce the beautiful Arlynn and Saylor.

These two beautiful girl came to visit me in our Virginia Beach photo studio.  They were simply perfect. I didn’t even need my white noise: their little squeaky snores did the trick. What an amazing adventure to have two precious miracles at the same time.

 

All comfy cozy and snuggled together, each girl took their turn serenading the other with the white noise of their sweet, squeaky, little snores. Check out an adorable video clip over on the Amanda Stewart instagram page at @amandastewartva.

 

Zach, such a loving Daddy already, was completely smitten with these two little bundles. I predict two future daddy’s girls

 

To go from an adorable family of two to an even more adorable family of four overnight must really be something really special.

These girls looked perfectly pretty on pastels…

and equally as beautiful on bold colors.

Mom and dad like to call Saylor and Arlynn their little twincesses. What a perfect fit.

squishy tiny details x 2Thank you to the Galford-Campbell family for letting me share this wonderful session with your two little miracles.  I look forward to capturing even more moments as they continue to grow.

Hampton Roads Cake Smash Photographer Amanda Stewart would like to wish Ellie a very happy 1st birthday.

Oh where does the time go? Do you all remember this cheeky little swimmer?Hampton Roads newborn photo | mermaid baby
She has grown into one adorable (and still cheeky) little girl. Hampton Roads Cake Smash Photography | Sweet little girl

So many of my Hampton Roads newborns are turning one, so I decided to break out that arts and crafts box to prepare for some Custom Cake Smashes. I started with this little mermaid’s setup. Mom let me know the colors and theme she was wanting, and I went from there. With a little help from Jen (the best assistant ever) because drawing is not my forte, we started brainstorming and sketching. I was aiming for a completely unique design. After a million trips to the craft store and hands covered in blue paint for days it was exactly as I had envisioned. Now mom just had to like it also. SHE LOVED IT, and i believe Ellie did too.

This amazing cake was made by the very talented Creative cake designs in Yorktown, VA. 

Ellie was particularly fond of that mermaid tail cake topper…

and frosting on her toes.

Thank you to the family for allowing me to capture all these wonderful moments during Ellie’s first year.

Amanda Stewart Photography understands that babies can sometimes a little rough on your budget. Because we are never quite sure when they are going to arrive, parents often do not consider booking a newborn photo session until their child is already here, and often that means trying to fit the cost of a portrait session into an already tightened budget. We’ve been there. We understand.

 

Over the past couple of years, we have received dozens of emails requesting a Newborn Mini Session. Today we are proud to announce that we are trying out something new here at Amanda Stewart Photography- a value-priced Swaddle Session for newborns 4 weeks and under. This new “mini” session combines the highest quality photography- the same as the top-priced package- with a shorter visit and smaller (but plentiful) image package. The Swaddle Session is the perfect solution for new parents with a tighter budget.

This is a simple 30-minute long session for newborn babies 4 weeks old and under. Baby will be comfortably swaddled throughout this special session. Amanda uses only the safest poses and techniques to capture those adorable details. Trust us; you will want to catch them now. Those fingers, toes, and tiny fuzzy cheeks are going to change in the blink of an eye.
