Sydney | Newborn

Say hello to little miss Sydney. At 8 days new, she was full of sleepy smiles! I'd love to capture a smile on every baby I photograph, but it is definitely not guaranteed to happen. This little peanut just kept giving them to me!
 Congratulations Brian and Julie on your adorable addition! :)

Julia | Newborn

My first newborn of 2013 was this absolutely beautiful baby girl. Julia is undeniably gorgeous and her smiles were adorable. At just 9 days old, she slept beautifully through her session and allowed me to pose her in every setup I had brought with me! I can't ask for much more than that. Her mom informed me ahead of time of their desire to incorporate birds in a photo or two, as they hold special sentimental meaning to them- hence Julia's blue-bird in a nest photo :) Congratulations Ali and Sonny! I'm so happy for you both and wish you all the best.

1st Year Giveaway!

The year 2012 was my first official year in professional photography. The response has been overwhelming and so greatly appreciated. My primary interest has been and will likely always be newborn photography. Thus far I have had the unbelievable privilege to photograph 28 babies! What an honor it is to photograph these precious little people. I cannot thank all of the parents enough for entrusting me with their little ones. As a special thank you, I've decided to host a giveaway. On my facebook page you will find an album entitled "First Year Giveaway!"  In that album, I will have one photo from each of the newborn sessions. Look through the album and vote for the one you'd like to see win a FREE 16x20 canvas print AND a $50 credit toward a future photo session.

You need to do 2 things to cast a vote. 
#1. 'like' the Meredith Hunt Photography facebook page (if you already 'like' it, just move on to #2)
#2. 'like' your favorite photo. 

If you 'like' the photo but do not 'like' the Meredith Hunt Photography facebook page, your vote will not be counted.

The photo with the most legitimate votes will win the $50 credit and a FREE 16x20 canvas print of the photo of their choice. 

This contest will run until 12:00am EST January 21st. So spread the word, share the contest, and start voting! :)

Lianna, Elle & Nicholas | triplet NICU grads!

My last newborn session of 2012 and I get to photography triplets! These three absolutely adorable babies were born prematurely and spent the first several weeks of their lives in the NICU. I was fortunate enough to be their nurse repeatedly and thoroughly enjoyed taking care of them. They are all so precious and unique in their own way. While they appear to be newborns, they were technically over 6 weeks old, the day these photos were taken. I had warned their parents ahead of time that we may not be able to get the 'sleepy baby' poses typically associated with newborn photos. My goal going into this session was to get at least one photo of the babies sleeping together. I anticipated mostly individual shots, thinking the babies would each wake up periodically. But unbelievably, these cuties ALL cooperated and enabled me to get some beautiful sleepy shots of them together. Special thanks to my friend Valerie from Simply Thomas Photography for coming along to assist me with all these little ones. Thank you so much Kristen and Mike! And congratulations again on finally having your three little ones at home where they belong. :)
