{Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer} A Lot of Love

It is no secret that it is hard to photograph your own newborn.  With the exhaustion of having a new baby in the house, having just gone through childbirth, and with other family responsibilities on the table, sometimes your love for photography and desire to document your baby’s first days can get put on the back burner.  That has been me so many times!  This time, I vowed to really make an effort to capture Gabriel’s first precious days.  A baby’s time being a newborn is so fleeting and I want to document all of it.  As a project within a project, I have decided to create a baby album for Gabriel, complete with his newborn photos, photos of him with each of his siblings, as well as a group photo of all the children.  So far, I’m about halfway done.  Some kids are off doing other things for the summer so it’s an on-going project, but I WILL complete it this time.

Consider this part I and stay tuned for part II. :)

This is my sweet boy, Adrian.  He has a 7th birthday coming up in about 3 weeks!  I love how they are both grinning here…

My gorgeous daughter, Calista…I love this image more than words can say. Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Lisa Holloway

Sweet little Elliott…I won’t lie, we worried a little bit about how Elliott would handle being displaced as the baby of the family.  Our worries were unfounded though as Elliott absolutely LOVES his new baby brother!  Too much sometimes. ;)  Elliott is learning body parts now and was showing me baby’s nose… Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Lisa Holloway Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Lisa Holloway Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Lisa Holloway

Sweet, sensitive Millie…my girlie girl.  She has such a tender heart.  I love how she is holding her baby brother in such a protective embrace here.

Calista took this for me!  I think I need to hire her on as my assistant asap!  She did an awesome job.  I’m not too keen on being in front of the camera, but I can say that this image is, without a doubt, my favorite picture of myself EVER.  That’s saying something – she did an amazing job!

And a few photos of Gabriel solo…I couldn’t resist.  :)

And just because doing this pose on ONE blanket wasn’t enough, he actually let us move him to a totally different blanket.  I’m having way too much fun, can you tell? :)

And yes, he really *does* wake up sometimes.  Are you looking, Mom? :)  He’s also not keen on wearing ‘bonnets’ (Jeff’s words). lol

And don’t quote me on this, but I *think* this is going to be my announcement.  My poor friends are probably sick to death of me going on about this announcement, but it is hard when you have a strong emotional attachment to ALL of the photos.  What, people don’t need 50 pictures of my baby for their fridge? :)  It is SO much easier designing client announcements!  A huge thank you goes out to Kim of Laugh & Grow Press for her help and for the amazingly sweet, simple, and very versatile templates.  You can purchase these templates on their website – use the code: ljholloway20 for 20% off!  Go and ‘like’ them on Facebook  too – let them know I sent you. ;)

{Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer} Gabriel Lucas, My New Baby

I am so happy to announce that our new baby boy, Gabriel Lucas Holloway, was born on Monday, June 24th at 11:08pm.  After months of waiting and anticipating his arrival, he made a rather speedy appearance after a short labor.  He is an absolutely beautiful baby boy and is so, so loved!  His birth was attended by the wonderful nurses of KRMC, Dr. Tedesco, 2 of my older children (Calista & Damien), and my dear friends Robin and Michelle.  Michelle is a local photographer and was so kind to photograph Gabriel’s birth for me.  She has truly given me a priceless gift!  I have no photos of any of my other 9 children coming into the world and I am so grateful to have these images of Gabriel’s birth.  You can check out my birth photos on Red Door Photography’s Facebook page.

I am by no means done taking Gabriel’s newborn photos, but we are currently in limbo waiting to see if we are going to be evacuated due to the Dean Peak fire currently burning in the Hualapai Mountains near Kingman, Arizona.  Life has sort of come to a standstill as we are glued to the news and radar, praying for rain.  The neighborhood just up the street from us has already been evacuated and we are praying that everyone stays safe and no homes are lost.  I wanted to put up a few of Gabriel’s pictures that I have taken so far and will hopefully be adding more soon.  Stay tuned for more, and please keep Arizona in your thoughts and prayers…too many lives and homes have been lost already!

On a happier note, here is my beautiful  new baby boy.  He’s a blonde haired, blue eyed cutie with a huge dimple in his left cheek (that I WILL capture soon).  Enjoy! :) Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | LJHolloway Photography | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer

{Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | Kingman Arizona Newborn Photographer} Baby Bishop

What can I say about baby Bishop…he is cute, cuddly, sweet, precious, adorable, loved…I could go on and on.  It was such an honor to be welcomed into this family’s home to take Bishop’s newborn portraits.  Bishop’s session embodies everything I want a newborn session to be…all about the baby…no frill and no fluff…just a lot of new baby sweetness in all it’s natural glory.  Thank you M. family for allowing me into your home in these first few precious days with your new baby boy.  I hope you love these images of your sweetie as much as I do.
