Crystal White & Kennedy
Birmingham Newborn Photography | Belly to Baby
A few weeks ago, we shared a blog post with Crystal and her husband, Martin for their maternity shoot. Crystal was stunning in a white casual dress. The session was outdoors with beautiful late-afternoon sun light.
Now, we are so pleased to share their little bundle of joy, Miss Kennedy Elaine!
We are so thankful for clients that trust us to be their baby’s first photographer – and hopefully, their photographer for years to come! It is always such a blessing to see a loving couple become first time parents!
Kennedy is absolutely precious.
Pretty in pink. Sweet little ones like this make my job so easy!
Thanks, Crystal and Martin, for sharing your blessing with us!

Winter Crafts with Amy P
With the New Year approaching, one of my children’s favorite past time is Winter Crafts. There is no better way to pass the time than to sit down and enjoy some crafts with your children. Often times, school & daycares are closed due to the winter. Crafts are a great way to pass the days at home. We are going to share a few of our favorite crafts.
– Coffee filter snowflakes – these are the easiest snowflakes to make. Because they are made from coffee filters, your child can cut them easier because they are not very thick. This is a great way to decorate too!
– Cotton ball snowmen – Have your child glue cotton balls onto construction paper. I draw an outline of a snowman. And then let my children glue on cotton balls. We like to add construction paper cutouts to decorate him.
– Birdseed ornaments – This has to be one of my children’s favorite. You can mix flour, water, corn, syrup & gelatin for a smooth paste that you mix with bird seed. You then can press this into any shape or use a cookie cutters. Insert a straw in the ornaments for a hole. Allow them to dry 3-4 hours and then remove the straw. The ornaments will need to harden overnight. Now you can hang these in trees or maybe on your deck. Your children will love watching the many birds. You can find the directions here
One great tip is to create a craft storage box. I have a large Rubbermaid box that hold construction paper, markers, paint, googly eyes, pipe cleaners, glitter, etc. This box of creativity is fun for any age and can definitely come in handy when you need to pass the time with children.
And be sure to have lots of hot chocolate and cookies on hand to keep your little ones toasty & warm on any cold day.
Wishing you all a wonderful New Year!!!
