Newborn Baby Boy in Southern Illinois Studio | AshLee Wethington Photography


Every once in awhile (ok, maybe more frequent than I want to admit) I purchase a prop for my joy more than what a mom or parent has particularly asked for. These adorable suspenders were on my list of must haves from @littlebebepropshop! Not expensive, just the right amount of uniqueness, and I knew they would fit perfectly! So what did I have to do? Well if you know me at all… you know that I posted a search for a newborn baby  boy to photograph, and boy did this little guy fit the bill and make it the right move!!


Isn’t he adorable? While I had him in the studio I decided to try out a few other new pieces too! He really liked the #huckfin pose! The wrap, outfit, pillow, and backdrop here are all by @heygoodlookingprops!AWP.-7413 copy


Mom and I got to talk a lot during the session and her gallery reveal. I knew a little of her recent story of a close loved one passing unexpectedly and a new baby, but we laughed and cried together <3 I am so glad I was able to offer her these precious memories and keepsakes of her new addition!

Those sweet little lips and such perfect skin! I am excited we are booking a session this summer to get his siblings and mom in front of the camera too!!

Hello there! Thank you so much for stopping by to learn more about me! I am a Registered Nurse that has found a great love for photography! I enjoy photographing newborns, children, and families. My goal is to capture authentic smiles, real life moments, and the tiny details that bring your mind racing back to that exact moment 10, 20, 30 years from now. I also have 2 children, MadaLynn and Beckett and a wonderful husband John. In 2017 I completed my bachelors in nursing... while working as a nurse and a photographer. I love to laugh and I have a silly sense of humor!
