After working with Cameron’s family several years ago, I was excited to learn they were expecting baby number two! First, we planned for a beautiful outdoor winter maternity photography session to capture their pregnancy, and then scheduled a newborn session for Cameron’s February due date.
Winter flew by. February brought lots of snow, and along with it, Cameron’s arrival. We set a date for his newborn portraits, but a huge winter storm snowed us in. No worries though, we rescheduled our session, which fell on Cameron’s 16th day, an unseasonably warm winter Thursday.
Cameron’s mom had spent the months preceding his newborn photo session sending me lot of ideas and inspiration. She loved blues, grays, browns, and teal for the color palette. One of her favorite props (which happens to be one of my most popular), was my rustic wooden bed, so we made sure to use that. We also incorporated a chunky knitted cocoon, a pair of knitted pants (momma didn’t want any birthday suit shots), a sweet blue bear bonnet, and an adorable mini football, perfect for baby sized hands.
Big brother joined in the session too, so we could capture sibling photos, and the two boys couldn’t have been cuter together. As for Cameron, he slept with one eye open for most of the session, making me work extra hard to keep him comfy and cozy. Didn’t matter though, his gallery of newborn photos is perfection, showcasing that adorable head of hair and chubby cheeks.
Baby’s name: Cameron Kash

Sharing the news of pregnancy: “We waited until I was 12 weeks into the pregnancy to announce the news to our family/friends. It was so hard to keep it a secret. So, when I had my 12 wk ultrasound we shared the photo and let everyone know that Connor was going to be a BIG BROTHER!”
Eventful pregnancy moments: “Not really! I had a really easy pregnancy and enjoyed every moment. ”
Naming Cameron: “We could not agree on a name for the life of us. My husband really had his heart set on the name Kash. I thought Connor & Kash sounded more like a country band, lol. So one day my husband suggested “Cameron Kash” and I said “that’s it!” I loved it. Connor & Cameron.”
Describe the moment that you first met Cameron: “I had a c-section so I couldn’t hold him right when he was born. But when I first saw him, I cried because he was so perfect and he looked like his big brother.”
First thing I noticed about Cameron: “He had so much black hair!! I hope he keeps it.” 🙂
Favorite features: “Everything about him, from his long cute toes to his beautiful dark hair. I can’t get enough of his cuteness.”
Favorite moment: “My favorite moment so far was seeing my husband give him his first bottle when he was born. I love seeing my husband love on his boys.” 🙂
