Sweet little chickadee. Massachusetts Newborn Portraits by newborn photographer Heidi Guerard. RI newborn baby in home portrait photographer.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting the sweet little baby girl born to a couple you may remember from a few months ago.  Born two weeks late, this little newborn reminded me so much of my own daughter as an infant.  Sweet and happy and sleepy in your arms... until you put her down!!  haha  Baby B just wanted to eat and be held.  Adorable, but certainly a challenge for those sleepy newborn poses (and if I recall, very exhausting for mom and dad).  I feel bad, I must have bored mom and dad with endless stories of G because this little girl brought back so many memories.  To get my newborn shots of G took me 6 hours and lots of nursing.  We were much more lucky with baby B.  With mom and dad's help, we would get her to sleep, gently place her into a pose, jump out of the shot for one second, and snap it before she woke up!  And wake up she always did.  She was actually the first baby AWAKE in my newborn hammock.  I normally would have never attempted that.  It was dads idea to try it and he was right, she loved it!  Mom and dad were so laid back and we did manage to get some amazing shots.  One of my favorites is the one of mom and dad below.  I loved working with this family over the past few months and I remember that feeling on their faces so well.  I'm so happy that I was able to capture it for them.  I also adore the nest shot.  One of my new all time favorites!  Enjoy your preview mom and dad :0)

Maternity Portraits. Wellesley Ma. Rhode Island and Massachusetts On location, in home Maternity Photographer.

Here is preview #2 from yesterday.  This couple was an absolute joy to work with.  I am so excited to be coming back to meet baby in a few weeks.  If baby is as easy to work with as mom and dad, it should be one fun shoot!  Pardon the short introduction, my husband is calling me for dinner!  Enjoy your preview :0)

Newborn Baby C. My teeniest newborn! Rhode Island and Massachusetts newborn baby portrait photographer. In home and on-location newborn portraits.

Yesterday I had a double header and was all over the map! My day started off with this adorable newborn baby girl, C. The day was extra special because it was actually Baby C's due date. Baby C made a very early appearance almost 6 weeks ago at just over 4 pounds. She spent a few weeks in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Newton Wellesley Hospital, but was finally home with mom and dad when I came to visit. What a special way to celebrate her homecoming! For our session, C was already over 6 pounds with the most adorable chubby cheeks. She was my teeniest newborn so far, however I must say, she peed and pooped more than any newborn I've ever worked with!!! Me, mom and dad were all completely covered. None of us minded though, because C was such a sweetheart! Enjoy your preview mom and dad, and your sweet little angel :0)

Baby L, 19 days old! Rhode Island and Massachusetts newborn baby portrait photographer. In home newborn portraits.

Here is the sneak preview from today's little man.  You might remember mom and dad from here.  He was a bit older than my typical newborns, turning 19 days today.  Usually after 14 days old they start to get much fiestier, and baby L was no exception.  Just when I thought he was really in a deep sleep, he let me know I wasn't getting away with any funny stuff by letting out a loud roar!  We did manage to get a few sleepy shots though, and I think mom and dad will be very pleased.  My favorite part about L was his adorable hair.  I've been lucky with the full manes on my last few newborns.  I think it looks so cute in photographs!  Enjoy your preview mom and dad.

First Birthday Boy, Cake Smash Session. Rhode Island Baby Portrait Photographer. Berlin Ma.

Yesterday kicked off my very busy week with a job I enjoyed so much that I didn't want to leave! Baby R's cake smash session was so fun to photograph and R's mom was so fun to visit with. Cake smash sessions are taken around 11 months and R will be turning one this month. He was an absolute sweetheart through our whole shoot. He didn't mind all of the wardrobe changes and was so adorable I wanted to take him home with me! Can you get over those cheeks?? We even caught some of his first steps on camera. First birthdays are such a special time and we captured some great memories. I think mom will agree! Enjoy your preview :0)
