itty bitty baby boy

Last weekend a very good friend of mine welcomed her third baby into the world, and I visited them in the hospital when he was less than 24 hours old. So tiny... so beautiful... Big brother and sister were incredibly sweet with him. Such a lovely family. Eydie is not only a truly dear friend, but an amazingly talented children's photographer here in the Twin Cities. We've swapped several family sessions since becoming friends... Here is the beautiful session she did with my family, a little over a year ago. I have 6 huge canvases from this session, hanging in my office, giving me such joy every time I see them.

I was so inspired by my visit with them in the hospital - I was reminded again that this is exactly the type of session that I absolutely love. Capturing a family together with their brand new little one is pure bliss to me.

Congratulations Eydie and Jayme on your beautiful new baby boy. He's perfect.

new website! :: minneapolis family photographer

I've been working quite a bit over the past few weeks on my website - I'm moving to just one site, rather than having the blog and the website portfolio gallery separate. So this is it! When you hit www.gwendolynwaite.com you'll come to a landing page which looks like this, rather than a splash page where you choose between the blog and the site. I think this is cleaner, easier to navigate, and far simpler. All of my portfolio galleries can be viewed by clicking on the link above in the brown navigation bar named "galleries" (pretty straightforward, huh! I'm all about making it easy!) Take a look around and let me know what you think. Hope you like it too!

Here's a photo I shot recently of a Japanese Maple Tree (I think!) - enjoy.

I was lucky enough to spend a few hours with this beautiful baby yesterday - just five days old! The perfect age to have a newborn session. Thanks for sharing your afternoon! I'll post a few more soon, but just wanted to share one now. Hope everybody has a fabulous holiday weekend! Minneapolis newborn photographer
