welcome home baby monroe | cat alkire photography | lifestyle newborn session

I am beyond excited to share this newborn session with sweet baby Monroe and her lovely parents. I met Becca and Matt way back in 2013 when I photographed their wedding. Since then, I’ve photographed a lot of family weddings and have stayed in contact with them. And when she found out she was pregnant I was beyond thrilled for them! And when she asked me to take photos in their home with their newest addition, I couldn’t wait!


It is so great getting to capture forever moments for clients that have become friends and share in their joys. And their labor and delivery story is one that definitely humbles you and reminds you of just how precious each day we have on this Earth is. And also how scary childbirth can be. They spent 15 days in the hospital and long story short, they were SO SO happy to be home and settled in with their girl. I am so happy for them and Roe is so loved by so many! And that nursery, GOALS. Straight out of a West Elm catalog.


Welcome home, sweet Monroe!

Rachael and Dan | Awaiting Baby Grant

Since having a baby of my own, I have recently become SO interested in doing any type of portrait session involving babies. Maternity, newborn, hospital sessions, you name it! I love the little baby toes, their hair, their soft skin and I especially love all of their little noises. 

I was so happy when Rachael contacted me to do her maternity photos.  Rachael and Dan were one of our amazing wedding couples back in 2014 (what?!) and they'll be celebrating their 4th anniversary just before their due date! I was so glad I could capture such a special time in their lives.  There is noting more exciting than expecting a baby, especially your first little one.

I love what I do and I am so happy that I can create lasting memories for people that mean so much to me! Can't wait to meet baby Grant and touch those little baby toes!!
