welcome baby Natalie … Traci branscum photography ~newborn portrait photographer ~ Ballwin, Missouri

So I am a bit late on posting photos from Miss Natalie’s newborn session.   She was absolutely perfect and such a doll.   

We started all girly in with lots of pink frills and bling!  Natalie’s mom found the headband on Etsy…isn’t it precious.

I had the pleasure of capturing the photographs of the birth of Miss Natalie!  What an amazing experience to see this little beauty come into the world.  She has amazing parents and the love for her shows through in these photos.   We captured these just a few days after everyone came home from the hospital.

Welcome home Natalie!

After photographing this beautiful mother and family in her maternity photos I was super excited for the arrival of their little girl.   Mom wanted a lifestyle feel to the session which was perfect in their home.   I always love capturing mom’s and dad’s with their new arrivals.   So loving and caring!

{Maternity Session} …. Traci Branscum Photography ~ St. Louis, MO

I had the pleasure of meeting this sweet family for a maternity session recently.   We decided on Bee Tree Park and what a great area.  I had been there once before but forgot about the neat buildings and open fields.   It was a beautiful day and perfect for this beautiful mom to be.

How cute is this family!
