Julie Kulbago Photography and the most gorgeous baby

by humanmama on August 16, 2012

So, I keep running into people who say “Number three, eh?! I bet there aren’t any pictures of this one yet!” But wait–there are! Yes, I am the Best Mom Ever. Nah, actually, not at all–but I have a secret: I know Julie Kulbago.

Long, long ago, as the legend goes, when Carpenter was just a little boy, his parents and Julie’s were good friends. They still are, in fact, and so when she contacted us to say “Hey! You’re pregnant! Guess what I do? Newborn photography!” we happily checked out her website.

And, woah, people, were we impressed. Seeing a GOLDEN opportunity to actually get photos of our third kid, you know–what’s his face–we figured Julie was the best and most wonderful way to document that we DID have another child. Actually, it was either hire Julie or just write “Benjamin” on the backs of old photos of Helena.

Here’s what Julie came up with. And lo, we were blown away with the sheer amazingness of her eye! and her camera! and her composition! and…actually, it’s probably just our stinkin’ adorable baby that makes the photos so good. But she helped. :)

Oh, my. Be still, my heart. And if anyone knew the real story here, that it was 90 degrees and that the baby was fussy and that Lilly was kicking the camera in this photo, they’d not believe that my children could look so angelic. So, thanks, Julie!

Oh, my gorgeousness. And, are you ready for pure, unadulterated cute?

Yes, way.

There you are, my son. When you are older and say “why are there no photos of me?!” Allow me, in that moment, to shout “YES! THERE ARE SOME!” and drag these out. Actually I won’t have to drag them out. Because I plan to get these all framed. No one could make these kids look more beautiful… Certainly not I. Thanks, Julie! And, for you Pittsburghers, Julie has some specials for you. If you go on her website at www.juliekulbagophotography.com, she will give you a free 11×14…just mention humanmama sent you :)

that little man yoga pose against a blue background is one of my favorite baby shots of all time – Julie is a genius and you and Carpenter make beautiful children…!
XOXO and mozel tov!

Super wow. LOVE these photos! Every one of them. Those are some seriously adorable children, and we will all pretend that they are always like that!

Wish I’d done newborn photography with my boys. Oh well, they’ll have to settle for crappy iPhone pictures for most of their baby books!
