Baby Dylan ... named after Bob Dylan himself ( I LOVE this btw!)Dylan was by far the sweetest little gal ever, born into the sweetest family ever. I've know Mom and Dad now for a few years as my husband and I have played sports with them and they are the most down to earth, fun, music loving family ever. We've enjoyed a concert together, a few back yard BBQ's, and a few night's out at the bars.

By Shannon Mulligan, Posted in Newborn Photography

Jaxson John Vargo...the third little boy for Chelsea and Robbie! I was over the moon when Chelsea reached out to me about doing newborn photo's for her newest addition. There is nothing more special than having a friend since the kindergarten, be there for all of her huge life events, and then being able to document her 9 day old little boy! We held the session in her home, so it was very laid back and relaxed. We chatted, drank coffee, and I even got some play time in with her two oldest. Jaxson John... read more.

Gavin Newborn Session - North Haledon, NJ

By Shannon Mulligan, Posted in Newborn Photography

What a sweet, sweet little boy! Gavin came into the studio just under 2 weeks old and was over 9 lbs. He was adorable! He came in sleeping and only woke when he got a little hungry! Once Mom fed him, he was back out like a light. Gavin also has the cutest older sister, Brianna who was such a good girl here in the studio. You didn't even know there was a 3 year old here. She loved to peek at him and check up on him when he got fussy, and loved to snuggle him while mom was feeding him!I especially LOVE the im... read more.

Baby A - In-Studio Newborn Session - North Haledon, NJ

By Shannon Mulligan, Posted in Newborn Photography

Ohhh Baby A! This little guy gave me a run for my money but I loved every minute.He arrived in the studio awake and about 2 hours later, he left the studio awake. He was the most alert baby I've had here in the studio which was awesome because we got a ton of cute awake shots. When I did get him to settle and close his eyes for a bit, he was the most peaceful little babe. I love the images of him sleeping as well as the ones with his eyes nice and wide!Baby A might have been going through a little growth sp... read more.

What a little peanut! Ella Helene was born in early November to such a loving family! Ella arrived a bit early but Mom was soo happy to have here before the rush of the holidays!

Avery Olivia - NJ Newborn Photography

By Shannon Mulligan, Posted in Newborn Photography

Avery Olivia was such a little doll. She came into the studio sleeping like a little angel and stayed nice and sleepy throughout most of the session. This is mom and dad's first baby and the love they had for this little gal was undeniable.  Mom and Dad got to sit back and relax while I swaddled and snuggled their little gal. Avery loved to be wrapped up nice and tight and did not mind the many switches we had for her. She did an awesome job at her first photo session! I captured some sweet moments wit... read more.
