I captured Henry’s newborn portraits when we was 11 weeks old. He was in the NICU for the first weeks of his life, but he’s sure made up for it quickly! Now Henry is ONE! And is pretty much the happiest little guy ever. He had so many smiles during his session! There is something I just LOVE about a serious face and a black and white. Red hair and green eyes, isn’t he perfect?!
When I met him at 11 weeks he had doubled his birth weight! We captured some special portraits to document his time in the NICU. When we photographed Henry’s birthday portraits his mom had something special planned and it turned out perfect!
Everly, you met her a couple weeks ago when I blogged her birth session, now here is her newborn session!! I came back to do a couple more portraits because of unforeseen circumstances, but it was TOTALLY worth it! I love me some newborn smiles. Alexis is the BEST big sister! I got this portrait without any Photoshop! 3 dogs, a 4 year old and a newborn all co-operating, it was a miracle!! Squishy snuggles.
Safe in Daddies arms.
Ivorie Pearl made Mommy and Daddy wait extra long to meet her, but she made it oh so worth it! She has the most delicate features and so perfectly suits her name!
Ivorie decided she didn’t want to sleep for the remainder of her session but I got some wonderful bright-eyed portraits. ..and sleepy yawns!
Aldina is absolutely perfect! From the moment I walked in the door she was so good to me. She is so gorgeous, and her HAIR, swooooon! I’m so happy that Mom chose purple for this session. It suits Aldina perfectly! I love when I’m able to capture spit bubbles, so darn cute!
When Mom and Dad found out that they were having a girl they went out and bought this dress. PERFECT for Christmas.
Cole, two days old and perfect! I’m so ecstatic that Mom and Dad welcomed me into their home on their first full day home from the hospital. They’re such champs and so laid back! And you could definitely tell during his session, he was the best little guy to photograph! Couldn’t help but include this special blanket! And of course Mom and Dad’s original baby, Maple, had to be included as well!
I can’t wait to photograph Cole in this same spot 4 more times over the next year! As part of his first year package I will get to watch him grow and capture his milestones at 3 months, 9 months and One Year.Maple may have stolen the show! This family portrait is the best!

Happy Halloween from Liz Czinege Photography – and good luck!
My friend made a tiny human! A couple of years ago I was in their wedding party, now here I am photographing their little guy. Alex is such a sweet boy, I love him to bits already. We had to keep his diaper on for the session, which made for some unique images that are completely out of my comfort zone – and I LOVE THEM. So snuggly all wrapped up. Did this photo make you yawn? The wall in their home matched this set up perfectly. Congrats you two, I couldn’t be happier for you!!
The below image pretty much sums up how Lukas felt about his newborn portraits. He was having NONE of it. But that’s okay because we still got some images that Mom and Dad love and we have 3 more sessions in his first year to make up for it! So snuggly! Newborn piggies! Lukas looks like the Thinker in this image. So cute!
What’s better than one baby? TWO! Amelia and Stella were my first ever twins. They both rocked their session. I was shocked that the part I was most concerned about (posing two babies at the same time!) turned out to be the easiest poses of the day. They did not want to be alone for their individual poses.
We cut off their hospital bracelets after I arrived and I was telling them apart by the acne on their faces. (Plus Stella’s skin was a little more pink and Amelia’s a little more olive.) Hopefully Mom and Dad are having an easy time telling them apart still!
Amelia, Stella, Stella left, Amelia right. So excited I got to use this headband set! They look so sweet on the girls wrapped in the lace. It’s up for debate whether these two are identical or not, what are your thoughts?At one point Stella (left) was fussing, Amelia threw her arm across Stella and she almost instantaneously stopped fussing. Twins amaze me! Two babes in a basket, the blanket they’re laying on was made by their grandmother.
Such a beautiful family. I’m so happy Mom suggested that we do the family portraits in her room!
