This sweet little girl was a tad restless during our shoot, she never quite fell all the way asleep (hence why there are no prop shots-- safety first!). But she was just so cute so I didn't mind! And her big brother was equally as cute! Such a sweet family!
Oh Elliott-- you were just the sweetest! You just wanted to be held and cuddled, and I don't blame you. :)
Cole is the first in a bunch of babes born this month. I had a nice little break over the holidays and now it's a baby-boom up in here! Luckily Cole was the cutest and sweetest little guy, and we had a great session!
Myles was the first baby I've had to have come back another day because no matter what I did I couldn't get him comfy, happy, and asleep. But when he came back a week later he was a perfect, happy little angel! So glad his mommy didn't mind bringing him back, it was so worth it-- we go so many amazing photos of the handsome little guy! Thanks again for being so patient and understanding Melissa!
I absolutely loved my session with Royal. Not only was he insanely gorgeous, with the perfect amount of squish and the best blonde faux-hawk I've ever seen-- but he was a perfect little sleeper too! And his parents were equally awesome. Such a sweet family. The best part of my job is definitely meeting new amazing people. :)
There's been lots of babies in the studio lately (and still more to come!), this is definitely a busy time of year for newborns! Evangeline came in for her session at 9 days new, and she did a wonderful job at modeling. Isn't she just lovely?!
This little blonde beauty had the most perfect round belly and adorable cleft chin! I loved photographing her! I can't wait to see what she looks like as she gets older!
I got to photograph such a sweet little baby yesterday! Isn't Bellina a beauty?! I love how her photos turned out, some of my favorite images to date! I am so grateful parents bring their tiny little babies to me; to let me cuddle them, and to create art with them as the centerpiece. I seriously love my job so much!
Charlie here was definitely the most awake baby I've had in a loooong time! LOL! He just didn't think sleeping sounded like a good idea-- so I snapped pics in the few minutes I was able to get him to shut his eyes, and also snapped pics of him with his eyes open (which I don't usually do-- but he managed some great eye contact!). I was so happy we were able to get him to sleep for some parent shots though, since those always seem to be my favorite!
Ruby was such a doll-- cute and quiet and a perfect little model! And her mommy and daddy were awesome too! Thanks for letting me love on your little one, I hope you enjoy her photos!!!
Meredith and Matt were the sweetest, most patient couple. It was like 100 degrees the day of our shoot, and I made them walk all over the place. LOL! And to really throw me off... the area of the lake we were shooting at looked completely different from when I was there not even a week earlier... I'm talking there was all of a sudden no water anymore! Crazy. But we obviously made it work! Can't wait to meet their little one! Not too much longer!
I asked my friend Melissa to let me photograph her in the water and luckily she said yes! And even more lucky was that we photographed in this little corner of the lake that was absolutely beautiful-- because when I went back to the same location 6 days later it was totally gone! The water had receded so far that this whole area was gone! Like twilight zone or something. So sad. But super happy we were there when we were because these are some of my all time favorite maternity photos! Thank you Melissa and Tim for being good sports and hanging out in the water with me!
Sweet tiny Teddy was so much fun to work with! As soon as I started posing him I could tell he had been a breech baby-- his long legs and tight hips made him a bit of a challenge in certain poses, but I get a kick out of his legs going all over the place! He was full of smiles and sticking his tongue out too! Such a cutie!
Miss Mackenzie was such a doll! Such a beautiful baby and such a sweetie! Thank you Britni and Art for having me be her first photographer!
This little guy was a real life doll! Not only did he have perfect little features (check out his eye lashes, eye brows, and hair! And he had the most perfect skin!), but he also slept the entire time and was a happy little guy-- never complained about how I positioned him or anything! I think he liked me. ;)
Sweet little Aaron came all the way from the Bay Area to have his newborn session with me, which was such a compliment! Loved working with this family-- such good people. Aside from getting to cuddle tiny babies, meeting so many amazing people is my favorite part of this "job". :)
For those who don't know... I love ALL things baby... pregnancy, birth, newborns, nursing... ALL of it. I love shooting maternity sessions, and then waiting for mom to contact me telling baby is here and ready for their newborn session. I had such a fun time with Veena and Sashi during our session together-- hoping I get to meet their little one when they arrive!
