Jaxon 15 days Tulsa Newborn Photographer

Hi everyone! I want to do a little intro as this is my first blog entry {ever} and my first newborn session {ever}. I look at the pictures of this gorgeous little man and see so many things I will do better next time…so please go easy on me 🙂

I did Jaxon’s birth session {also a first for me} when he made his entrance to the world on December 29th. You can see that very emotional shoot HERE. Jaxon was a few weeks early and stayed in the NICU for his first 13 days of his life. His loving parents visited him every single day twice a day during the allotted visiting hours. This little man is so loved by so many! Make sure to read the the little blurb above the last image for a quick tear jerking moment!

I probably won’t blog this many images every session. However, being my blogging+newborn debut I figure why not?!

Please note that all hats and the crown were made by my dear sweet friend with Sleeping Willow. She has a Facebook friend page exclusively for photographers. Photogs, you MUST add her : https://www.facebook.com/thesleepingwillow

Her online store is here and I promise you will swoon!


The stretch wraps you see Jaxon swaddled in can be purchased from another amazing friend of mine, Janean with Janean Gray Photography. You can find her here and also swoon over her work!!


Okay…..here he is!!!!

This next image was a completely original idea that I have not seen anywhere else (I even searched Google and Pinterest to make sure!)

I am officially going to make this my trademark shot for all newborns! I LOVE IT!!!

While Jennifer (Jaxon’s Mama) was at the hospital she met a lady on the elevator who had lost her baby that morning and sheasked Jenn if she knew anyone having a baby. Jenn gave the woman her deepest condolences and explained that her son Jaxon was in the NICU. A little later Jaxon’s nurse brought Jennifer a bag. Inside the bag was this handmade duck blanket from the {elevator} woman’s grandmother and she wanted her to have it.

What a selfless gesture that woman made and what a treasured item that blanket will ALWAYS be!

Thank you for taking the time to view this!! I always said I would never be a newborn photographer but I think Jaxon has changed my mind.

I mean, how could this beautiful little boy not have that kind of effect on me? 🙂

Amazing ….love the lighting….natural lighting?

Gorgeous pics!! Additionally, your friends work (hats, wraps, etc.) are beautiful. Makes for a great working relationship I am sure.

The story about the duck blanket was so sad and sweet. I am sure your client WILL cherish that blanket for ever. I have an afgan that my son received from the hospital. He was a “Moses” baby and I became is forever mom. I will always cherish the afgan that was donated for him. Also, my nieces were born at 25 1/2 weeks 17 years ago. The families in NICU became a close knit group. Many stories happened there very similiar to what your client experienced as well. Everything received at that time have become cherished family heirlooms now.

Good luck to you and your client on your new adventures.
