Baby Lia and family | Denver newborn photography

Back in June, the lovely and pregnant Melissa answered my call for maternity model. Beautiful, smart, laid back, Melissa was a joy to photograph at her Stapleton, Colorado home–she had such a cute bump! Her husband Brian and toddler son Ben joined in on a few photos too. I love making maternity sessions a family affair whenever I can because to me, the portraits to be treasured show the relationships, not just the person.

Right on time, little Lia was born, and I had the pleasure of making her newborn portraits in my new studio–Lia is my first in-studio baby! Melissa brought Ben and Brian along with the hopes of getting a good family photo. Ben watched DVDs and horsed around with his dad while I got some sweet shots of Lia, and then we put the family in front of my backdrop for a few quick shots. In the end, I took Ben out to splash in puddles in his Thomas the Train rainboots while mom and dad got Lia ready for our chilly October day, and I got lucky with a pretty photo of the family taking a walk down my street with the fall colors behind them.

Help Lia’s family get a free 11×14.

Favorite photo of Lia is the close-up with the crocheted hat…or maybe the one of her cuddled in tight laying in her mama’s arms. Good luck on getting the 11 x 14~

I love this family so much! Beautiful photos of everyone! Ben is such a stud and quite a model in the making. The one of Lia laying on her belly is so cute! LOVE!

Great pics! How do you decide? Lia is so precious and Ben is looking like a great big brother! Mom and Dad, you guys look great as well :)

I love the picture with Ben and Lia’s feet! I don’t know why that one gets me. Maybe it’s the proud auntie in me but I think that is such a precious and beautiful shot!

I love the one of Lia on her belly (where you can see her tiny little rear :) ) as well as the one of Melissa holding Lia looking down at her. Also, I love the one of the four of them walking down the street. Great pictures!!!

Those are fantastic shots!!!! Love the one of Ben’s bare feet. World’s best looking family….after mine of course. <3 Kathy

Hard to chose, but I’m partial to the one of the whole family outside, walking or the feet :)

Every picture is my favorite. Especially the 2nd, 7th and 10th ones.
