At some point in my liberal arts college career, I fell in love with Frida Kahlo. Her story is so fascinating, her self portraits are intriguing and beautiful. A couple years ago, we went to a Frida/Diego art exhibit in Atlanta – where I bought myself a silly t shirt and a poster which will one day hang in my office – that is, when I have an actual office and not the corner of the girl’s playroom. 😉  I just HAD to buy this little shirt for Callie and have been holding on to it for at least 6 months for the perfect outfit to photograph it with. It’s been worn probably 20 times, and now, even has little food stains at the neck of the shirt. So I just got these Freshly Picked moccasins in the mail today, and knew they’d work perfectly with this little outfit – and because I’m a lover/supporter of all small business mamas like myself – Her denim pants are Ella B Denim, headband is ThanBirds and her little toddler purse is iBetterAccessorize. Callie isn’t quite 2 yet, but she’s super active (as most almost two year olds are!) and what better way to capture this time than a little lifestyle session with her. She’s our last baby so I soak up all these sweet little milestones with her. Her little pigtail buns, her chubby fingers, her joy of collecting and throwing rocks, those little chubby legs, and the way she skips around on her tip toes from time to time (and …

Beckee is one of my cloesest friends – she’s one of those friends that you just know God put in your life for a reason! She keeps me sane most days, keeps me laughing hysterically (anyone that knows Beckee probably agrees with this) and I know anytime I need anything prayed for, I can come to her and ask and she’ll do it! So basically, I adore this girl, and of course, her family. Her oldest daughter is a couple months older than Lucy, my middle, and Caroline just turned 1. I just can’t believe how fast the last year has gone! I’m sharing a few more than I usually do, but I just had to. Check out some favorites of mine:   -Lane www.laneweichmanphotography.com family photographer birmingham, al

Holden was such a doll! I really enjoyed photographing him and getting to met his family! I even got a couple of shots of his GORGEOUS sister! She has the most beautiful eyes and I just had to get some! I got way more photos than usual and his session, even with family shots, went by so quickly! Here are a few of my favs…it was very hard to decide! 😉 Lane Weichmanwww.laneweichmanphotography.com Photographer Springville AL

As expecting parents, we have so many ideas in our heads about what parenting is going to be like. I would say 100% of all parents realize that these ideas are not accurate AT ALL once we actually become parents. With my oldest, I told myself she would only eat homemade organic baby food…she hated it! 😉 I told myself that my middle daughter would be a great sleeper – after her 4m sleep regression, she didn’t sleep through the night until she was 18 months. With my third, I thought I had it all figured out, she is now on a daily dose on antibiotics to prevent recurring bladder infections and has been to children’s hospital more times than I’ve been before as 7 years as a parent! I say all of this to say – after photographing more than 50 newborns, I still get ideas in my head…and when a parent tells me they really want a specific shot, I work really hard to get that shot…however, ultimately, the one in control is the baby! Jackson’s mom had two shots that she really wanted. I tried the first one 3 or 4 times, and it wasn’t happening, and the second one we spent probably 30 minutes working on it, and it didn’t happen either. Most photographers I know are extremely OCD and are perfectionists! I am one of them. I beat myself up over photography more than I do than anything else! It took me the rest of the day to recover from …

I have known Breanne for such a long time, and she came to me months ago and wanted to book a session..I was so excited! Her daughter is absolutely adorable and I knew her newest would be, too! Of course, he’s absolutely precious and did so great for pictures! I just love the warm tones that she chose for their photos, and the colors, and his adorable little mohawk, of course! It’s always so hard to choose just a few to share so I may sometimes share more…and today I did! Here are just a few highlights from Corbin’s newborn session Lane Weichman www.laneweichmanphotography.com Newborn photography birmingham al

Finn’s mom came to me with a pretty neat idea in mind…she wanted a very simple set up for his cake smash with just one big balloon. I LOVED the idea and we went with it! I’m so happy with how these turned out! It was so much fun, and they have these neat timeless pictures to have forever! Here are a few of my favorites:

Oh my goodness…Kinley is just the smiliest happiest baby! She was SO easy to photograph! She was interested in everything and gave me the biggest smiles! Her parents are super sweet and I was so glad to be able to squeeze them in and photograph her! I LOVE the gorgeous light from her family photos…such a pretty sunset! I can’t wait to see her again for her 1 year photos in January!

I photographed Copper when he was a newborn! His mamma actually won my giveaway for a newborn session. He was a challenge for sure, but somehow we managed to get some great pics! Then, we got some fall family photos with he was 4 months old…and then they came back when he turned a year! They were super easy going when I was having one of those days (for those of you with three kids..you know, one of THOSE days!) and we got an adorable cake smash, then we did a family shoot, with a couple add-ons too! I just love these photos. The colors they picked, the location, it all turned out great! They were troopers! It was SO hot, too! It was hard to pick just a few favorites to share, but here they are!

I first photographed Scarlett in January, when she was a newborn, and I am so glad her parents asked me to photograph her 6 month milestone as well! She is just as precious as they come and super smiley. Looking forward to seeing her around her first birthday, too! Lane Weichman www.laneweichmanphotography.com Springville AL baby photographer

Kennedy was such a great baby and wonderful poser! I got way more photos than her family probably knows what to do with! 😉 I absolutely love the color scheme of her session, it’s so girly and pretty! She’s just too too cute! Here are a few of my favs:

Harper is SO super cute!! She is the smiliest baby, ever! She made her session super easy and her big brother Noah is precious, too! He totally loves her, can’t you tell? Can’t wait to see her again, hopefully, for her 1 year photos! Springville AL baby photography www.laneweichmanphotography.com

I got to photograph Henry when his mom was still pregnant, his birth, newborn photos, 4 month photos and now 8 month photos and we’re already looking forward to his 1 year session! He is SO super precious and his sweet parents are fabulous! His session is one of those I look forward to for months before it happens. I’m already planning ideas in my head for his cake smash and the theme that his mom picked out. We decided to go to the Birmingham Botanical Gardens for his photos, and I am SO glad we did! For whatever reason, it was completely dead and hardly anyone was there! We had the whole place to ourselves, it seemed! He wasn’t very fond of the grass but once we put him on a pathway (almost scaring his mom to death!) he did great! We made sure Dad was super close by in case he fell, which he didn’t! Here are a few favorites from his session, wish I could share them all! Birmingham AL baby photography Lane Weichman Photography www.laneweichmanphotography.com

I had a great time photographing Corinn! She was an absolute doll and super smiley the whole time! I don’t think I’ve ever done a 1 year old session with a cake smash so quickly, she was just so great! I love her color scheme for the photos and her cute faces just make it even more precious!   -Lanewww.laneweichmanphotography.com Springville AL cake smash photographer

My husband, who is my biggest advocate, had an appointment for his eyes and wouldn’t you know, his eye doc was pregnant?! He told her I was a newborn photographer, and she emailed me and booked! I had so much fun photographing her sweet bundle Sawyer and I absolutely love his hair! Here are some highlights from their session:

I just realized I am A MONTH behind on blog posts! I really wanted to share Brett’s session because he is absolutely adorable and I loved his session! He was great at the beginning but ended up getting pretty gassy, so the last half of his session took awhile. I always say that I can deal with any kind of baby except a gassy baby! 🙁 Anyways, here are a few of my favorite of his photos: springville al newborn photography -Lane Weichman www.laneweichmanphotography.com

I haven’t done a Fresh 48 session in a long time (with the exception of Callie’s) and I forgot how much I LOVE them! There’s nothing like a FRESH one day old baby…they still have wrinkly toes, fresh skin, that teeny tiny new newborn look, and the natural light from the hospital is just awesome. I’ve been looking forward to this session for sure. I did Elizabeth’s maternity pictures and I’m doing Brett’s newborn photos this weekend, too…I’m sure he’s already changed so much already! 🙁 I think everyone who can should book a Fresh 48 session! 😉 Here are a few (okay, maybe a few more than a few….couldn’t help it) of my favorite photos from his session. Enjoy! – Lane www.laneweichmanphotography.com Fresh 48 photography Birmingham AL

I photographed Will a year ago for his newborn session. He has grown so so much in the last year! I can’t believe how fast it has gone…I’m sure his mom feels the same way, too! We had so much fun during his session then his cake smash…oh my goodness, he was SO SO cute and loved the cake! I had a great time. 🙂 Enjoy the pics! -Lane www.laneweichmanphotography.com Springville, AL baby photography

This family is just the CUTEST! They live super close to us and one of their kiddos was in my oldest’s class last year. They said they’ve been wanting to do photos but wanted to wait until they had all their kids..they knew they wanted four kids, and now they have all four and were ready to pics! We held out a little bit until May so that the weather would be great and it would be pretty and green. I’m so glad and the day couldn’t have turned out better for photos. It wasn’t too hot at all. The kids behaved so well (and you never know how it’s going to go with a family of 6!) and we had a ton of fun. Anyways, here’s a few of my favorites from their family session: Lane Springville AL family photographer www.laneweichmanphotography.com

I’ve been wanting to make this post for awhile now…I’ve finally gotten around to browsing and editing all the pictures from our hospital stay and I am so excited to share them all! Callie came into this world at 3:36 AM on March 30th, 2015. I had a very fast natural labor and she rocked it! It was so fast the doctor on call didn’t even make it in…it was pretty chaotic but an amazing experience! When we got to the hospital, the nurse said I hadn’t progressed at all. A couple hours later, same thing. I felt so dumb..here I was third kid and coming into the hospital with a false alarm! But I just knew this labor would go fast like Lucy’s, too! So she told us to go walk around L&D for 30 minutes…I started feeling more pain halfway through our walk. So, I decided I didn’t really want to walk anymore because it hurt (ha!) and came back….the nurse hadn’t come to check on me and I was starting to hurt way worse with each contraction. I paged her and she came and checked me and Josh said her eyes got HUGE! She said, “Honey, you’re gonna have a baby in the next hour!” and I was like, “Well, I guess no meds again, huh?” So they carted me off to a room, finally, and got an IV in, each contraction getting WAY way worse, she came in and told me not to push, flipped out and buzzed the other nurses …

Charleigh is an absolute DOLL! She was way over pictures about halfway through but we talked her into more by acting ridiculous and getting her to laugh. We originally had this session scheduled when I was 38 weeks but she got sick and we had to reschedule for this past week, at 39 weeks pregnant! PHEW! Getting up and down was NOT easy! I needed the exercise though and so enjoyed meeting this girl and her sweet parents. I am very thankful this little one of mine decided to hold out until I could do the session and get her pictures edited for mom and dad. Here are just a few of my favorites from her sweet 1 year old studio session: -Lane www.laneweichmanphotography.com Birmingham AL family photographer

Blake was not feeling his 6 month old session the first time around, so I got to see him TWICE! He was way happier the 2nd time! These are pictures from both of our little sessions.

Khloe started out being spunky, but then she settled in and didn’t make a peep!! She was an absolute doll for her newborn mini session. I even threw in an few extra set ups because she was SO good and I just couldn’t help myself!! I LOVE that I’ve had so many girls this year! I’ve already photographed 6 newborns this year, and have three more before our own newborn comes! Just a huge blessing to be able to do what I’m doing…seriously!! I attached a few of my favorites from this gorgeous girl’s sweet session. -Lane www.laneweichmanphotography.com Birmingham AL newborn photos

Ansley came in for a newborn mini session with me last week….she was 15 days old and after being WIDE awake for about an hour, she konked out and slept (so hard I could barely keep her posed) amazingly! She made me get over my fear of photographing babies older than 2 weeks old and was an absolute dream. I’ve had so many dark headed baby girls in my studio this year. Last year I only photographed a few newborn girls, but this year, its the opposite so far (though I have more boys scheduled later!) I just had to share a few of my favorites from this session. Loved these! -Lane www.laneweichmanphotography.com Birmingham AL newborn photos

I’ve been doing a ton of newborn mini sessions lately! They’re so much fun!! I’m glad that I’m offering these this year for those who just want a few pictures of their new additions or for those on a budget. Last week I did two, and wanted to share what a newborn mini looks like (although they’re all different depending on baby) So here’s Noah, an adorable baby boy who wasn’t so found of my bean bag set ups, but snuggled right in once wrapped on a rug on the floor. 🙂 – Lane www.laneweichmanphotography.com Birmingham AL Newborn Mini Session
