• Baby Jack

an honor! First, I photographed Frank and Charity’s beautiful country wedding. Then I photographed Naomi (Charity’s sister) and her husband Joe in Downtown Fredericksburg and now I have photographed their first little one and man is he a cutie! I walked into the house and it was so quiet and warm.  Little Jack was trying to fall asleep and I started looking for basket locations! I don’t shoot newborn sessions very often because most of my time is spent with engaged couples. However, this was a nice change of scenery. Photographing a newborn is a totally different ballgame but luckily, Naomi and Joe had just finished remodeling their home

and we had beautiful light, furniture and shelves to work with!  Not to mention a beautiful baby too! Jack is precious. For the little amount of time that we got him to sleep, he was quite the model and I think we have some really adorable images. Watching Naomi hold her first baby was so so sweet and I love seeing this amazing family enter into this new stage of life! People tell me not to catch the “baby bug” and believe me….I’m a long way from wanting to start a family. I just want a puppy!!! (we’re trying to hold off on adding more responsibility into our life… be I’m already thinking of names and I know Michael secretly is too:)


So enjoy a few of my favorites of this beautiful baby boy! Naomi and Joe, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your life once again! You have a beautiful family!!

Naomi I love your taste in light fixtures! Beautiful!…. and of course your baby is beautiful too! 

Showing a little leg!

Loved these! Teal bench… perfect.

So precious.

    Puppies are fun! David and I got one 3 months after we got married– they’re a lot like children (we’re actually hoping our child is more easy going than our dog! She has skin & food allergies) and will be married for 3 years (my my time flies!) when the baby comes.

    Fantastic shoot. I guess I have seen less or rather no baby shoot from you. Good going. As pro photographer you need to shoot everything.

    Well done with the shoot. Very nice. Such style the focus and the color tones are the most important I guess. Well you nailed it.

  16. Kristen Kang reply

  20. Naomi and Joe reply

    LOVE them! Thanks for the cute comments about Jack, too! We are in love with him. I love the close up pictures of him in the basket- you truly captured his sweetness and funny little faces he makes. I am a little biased, but I think this is your best work ever :) hehe! Seriously- thank you so very much for capturing images of our little guy in his first few weeks.

    Can I just tell you that these beautiful pictures have given me some great encouragement to keep going through the last few weeks of my pregnancy! It will be so great to actually SEE our son. People keep saying that it is all worth it – and these photos of Jack definitely say, “worth it”!
