kocol family | lifestyle newborn session in willis, va


These two have been together for over a decade, and this precious little girl is their miracle baby!  Noelle Alexandra arrived on Christmas Eve, and I think it’s safe to say she’s the best Christmas gift these two have ever received! 😉🥰  I have always loved photographing brand new families and itty bitty babes, but boy, these sessions have a whole new meaning for me now that I’m a mama myself.  I love hearing other families’ birth stories, and swapping tips + fave parenthood hacks; and of course, I absolutely love capturing moments that might otherwise be lost forever in the sleepless fog of newborn life.  Because it’s so true that they grow too fast, and we never want to forget how teeny tiny their little fingers + toes were, or how easily they drifted off to sleep in our arms.

Crystal, Jason, y’all were already amazing parents when we took these photos less than two weeks after you brought your sweet girl home, and I know without a doubt that you’re doing an incredible job of learning how to love her exactly the way she needs to be loved, with each day that passes.  And I’m SO excited to share my favorites with you today from those sweet newborn days!

This next one … SUCH a fave!!!


Love both of these next ones … that sweet baby yawn on the left, and proud daddy’s smile on the right!

I love pulling out my macro lens at newborn sessions and getting suuuuper close shots of those itty bitty fingers – and, in this next shot, those baby eyelashes!


This next one on the left … those sweet little baby feet in mama + daddy’s arms!

GAH, this next one!  SO. stinking. precious!


Y’all know I had to get some close-ups of those itty bitty feet!

This next one is another of my FAVES!


Crystal, Jason, thank you for giving me the opportunity to be part of this season with you!  I have so enjoyed getting to know y’all, and capturing you + your sweet little Noelle!
