“Quick” before it’s too late… maternity portraits.

Don’t wait until it’s too late…. maternity portraits are amazing for your family & baby albums.  And, if you want a full blown session – that is great!  But, if you are one of those people that just wants a few memories before that beautiful belly is replaced with a newborn in your arms – Quick Takes on Thursdays in our studio are the way to go.  30 minute sessions on Thursday mornings (times available from 9am-noon for $30/30 minutes) – for a lifetime of memories that you otherwise may miss. Call Jenny for details a (720)454-7608 or e-mail is at info@fototails.com.  Times are limited – so call us to set up your session time for when you are around 30-37 weeks along!

The first couple weeks.

It’s 3 a.m., they’re all asleep,
and no-one’s here to see.
As we rock slowly back and forth,
My baby boy and me.

His little hand is feather light
Tucked up against my chin.
I hold his tiny hand in mine,
and stroke his baby skin.

The house about us creaks and groans,
The clock hands creep around.
He snuggles closer to me still,
And makes his baby sounds.

I love these quiet hours so much,
And cherish every one.
Store memories up inside my heart
For lonely nights to come.

All too soon he’ll be grown up,
His need for mama gone.
But until then I still have time
For kisses and for song.

Time for quiet hours like this
With him cuddled in my arms,
Where I wish he’d always stay
Protected, safe and warm.

And yet I know the day will come
When his tiny little hand,
will be bigger than my own.
He’ll grow to be a man.

But until then he’s mine to love
With no one here to see.
As we rock slowly back and forth,
My baby and me.

fleeting moments.

I have the amazing opportunity to photography nearly a hundred newborn babies each year.  Parents come into my studio and bring me these beautiful little beings that just entered the world – sometimes within a few days to a couple weeks of their birth.  Many times I see these same children months and years later – and it is truly a gift to see so many lives grow and change.

Newborn portrait sessions are more special than I could ever explain.  The softness of their skin, the wisp of hair on their neck, the little fur on their shoulders and back – and of course their tiny fingers and toes.

This time is so short – don’t miss out.  You don’t realize that that newborn time has passed until a month or two go by and you realize – they don’t look the same anymore.

This beautiful boy is our little tribute to “THE BRONCOS”  sporting a beautiful orange & blue hat.  And although I have a version with all of the little shedding skin edited out – I am partial to images of them looking exactly like they are, so no editing to this image.  Just reality – that even at 13 days old, this little mans shedding skin is just a sign of him growing already.
