Simon Peter’s Newborn Photos

When Simon Peter was 8 days old, we took newborn photos. Christopher set up studio lighting in his living room, and we went to work. I’d recently purchased some new props and was excited to try them out. We started with a quiet environment as the other five children were at Grandpa and Grandma’s.

We did our standard pose first, wrapping him, and then instead of a basket, we used the new crate. I loved how it turned out.

Simon Peter was such an easy baby to work with, sleeping most of the time. When we added the dynamics of an all-children photo, wow, that was a fun one to do. Then, capturing an entire family photo with some energetic (and tired!) littles–it was such a blast. Thankful for this amazing, happy family!

to them that have obtained like precious faith with us
through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ”

  1. Oh my, he is such a beautiful baby! All of the photos are wonderful. Anna Marie has been and will continue to be in my prayers, especially for the surgery on Tuesday. She seems like such a calm, gentle, peaceful person and my heart goes out to her for what she is going through at this time. You are all such a blessing to each other and I know it must give her and Christopher great peace to know the children are safe in your care while they have to be at the hospital. Your entire family is in my prayers.

  2. Such a beautiful family! I absolutely love the crate prop and how the baby is swaddled looks so adorable! You done very well gathering the children for a photo!
    I would like to mention that I have been bringing the families request for Anna Marie to the Lord.
    As I pray for her I am always reminded of the verse Psalm 91:11 as well as the lyrics of the hymn God Will Take Care of You.
    I pray that The Lord will bring healing and peace for her & the family through these uncertain times.
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Simply Precious Simon Peter is! Sarah, you and your brother are very gifted in your photography! We absolutely love all the pictures they are so adorable! A precious family, whom we are praying diligently for! You are marked on our calendar for the 18th Anna Marie! We will gladly continue to lift you up in prayer! Praying for everyone at home as well! You all demonstrate so much love to one another! So wonderfully encouraging coming to this site to see a family work together for our Lord Jesus! Psalm 83:18

  4. WOW, so amazing to witness new life in such incredible photos. Love the sooo sleepy shot. Very creative. You can almost hear the little guy thinking ” enough, I’m tired we done here. Nighty night “.

    1. What you don’t see on the sleepy shot is Christopher was helping to hold him in position. That one is tricky to get and almost impossible for one person to do!

  5. What an adorable family. Full of God’s love. Thanks for sharing this inspirational photo shoot. Just curious, does Sarah offer her excellent photography services to the public or is it just for family shoots? May you all be greatly blessed especially Anna Marie who is in all our prayers.

  6. Hi Christopher and Anna Marie,

    The Lord has blessed you with another precious soul. We appreciate your heart to have children for the glory of God. We are praying for you as you go through this trial in your lives. Our hearts were heavy for you both when we heard the news a little while ago. We are grateful that God is the strength of our lives.

    Greg and Arielle M.
