A Classic Newborn Session | Mitchell SD

kelsey’s motherhood story:

What were your first thoughts when you met baby?

He’s finally here and he’s absolutely perfect!

What do you hope your children will say years down the road when looking at these images?

That they are 100% about him

What is your favorite thing about being a mother?

The love I have for him and how he makes me feel more complete. Watching my husband become a father has also strengthened our relationship.

your session experience:

Do you have any advice for other families preparing for a newborn session?

Relax and enjoy it! Kristen does an amazing job, so sit back and let her do her thing!

What was your favorite part of the experience?

The excitement Kristen had after looking at the pictures on her camera throughout the session. I knew we were going to get some amazing shots and we did!!

I met Kelsey and Eric when I photographed their engagement session and wedding.  When they hired me to photograph their brand new baby boy…I was so honored.  He was a dream to photograph and I loved my time with them and getting to know sweet baby Gunner. Enjoy their photos below!

From bump (maternity) to babe (newborn) to sitting (6ish months) to celebrating (1st birthday),  I specialize in timelessly capturing your baby’s first year.

I photograph newborns as they are…creating galleries of art that are timeless, classic, pure, simple, authentic, and natural.  Your newborn is only this little for a fleeting moment and this wonderful opportunity simply can’t be repeated.  I want to preserve that moment for you to cherish forever, in a piece of art that makes you pause every time you pass it and makes you smile every time you think of it.

Enjoy these images of beautiful baby Gunner and his sweet parents from his classic newborn session in my Mitchell studio!
