Maverick: {10 Days New}

August 31st, 2017

There is something about photographing little boys in neutral colors; it is just so sweet and innocent. This handsome little man was so much fun to hang out with.

There is something about photographing little boys in neutral colors; it is just so sweet and innocent. This handsome little man was so much fun to hang out with. Sometimes, little ones show up for their session wide awake with no desire to take a nap for me. When this happens, we improvise. Posing awake babies on their stomach can be both dangerous and counter productive. When this happens, we switch to back poses. We were able to capture some super cute photos of Mr Mavericks eyes and his little personality. The basket in this first photo was purchased from Intuition Backgrounds – a favorite shop of mine. The brown basket fluff was purchased from Oh So Fleeting – their products are sooo soft and beautiful, I can’t recommend enough!

Dolores: {newborn}

May 24th, 2017

Meet sweet Ms. Dolores. Because I love her name so much, I have to add in here that Dolores was named after her grandmothers on each family side. That right, both her Mom and Dad had grandmothers named Dolores. So neat! Ms Dolores is the daughter of a good friend of mine, as well an […]

 

Meet sweet Ms. Dolores. Because I love her name so much, I have to add in here that Dolores was named after her grandmothers on each family side. That right, both her Mom and Dad had grandmothers named Dolores. So neat! Ms Dolores is the daughter of a good friend of mine, as well an entire family I’m rather fond of, the Hecklingers. For Ms D’s session, I asked her Mom if she had any requests for the setup. Purples, greens, all natural / nature. The two green fluffs are from one of my favorite vendors Oh So Fleeting. They really are as soft as they look. The round basket is one that I’ve had several people contact me wanting to know where I got it. It came from Pier One probably 10 years ago, so sorry on that one. They are tough to find! The twig bed can be purchased several places, I went with Intuition Backdrops, who if you don’t know, also sell an awesome variety of props.

Do note that the photo above is a composite. Mom was holding the baby in the background. Due to safety reasons, I highly recommend never letting young siblings hold babies on their own.

That’s me and my new friend! Ms D was a perfect angel for her session… but as soon as we were done and I want to snap a quick photo with her she was like… no way lady, get me out of here! Hehe!

Ms Madison: {newborn}

Eeeeek! Sweet precious Ms Madison came to the studio for her photo debut with her gorgeous peachy skin tones and rose red cheeks.

Eeeeek! Sweet precious Ms Madison came to the studio for her photo debut with her gorgeous peachy skin tones and rose red cheeks. I was so excited to break out this quilt backdrop by Intuition Backdrops that I’ve been saving for a special little subject.  Madison was just a little peanut, which is extra fun when picking props to use. I love using layers in my newborn photos and I find that you can discover new affordable layers just about anywhere. The lacy scarf was purchased from the world market on a day they had all scarves 50% off. I also locate a lot of fun layers in the scarf sections at used clothing stores such as Clothes Mentor and Style Encore, and sometimes even Goodwill.

I love to photograph the tips of baby toes! One of my favorite photos to capture – but it takes a very sleepy baby to get a sharp fine focus shot. If you are thinking about photographing newborns, one must own lens is a macro lens so that you can creatively capture all the little baby parts. Canon’s 100mm F2.8 IS L lens was used to photograph these toes.

Mom brought along this super cute knit owl outfit. Kinda want a hat like that for myself!

Deanna: {1 Years Old}

Boy has time flown by, I can not believe Deanna is already 1-years-old! You would never know by these photos that she wasn’t happy to have her pictures taken. As I always say, no matter how rough a session might go with your little ones, I promise you, every parent is always impressed by the […]

Vivienne: {9 Months Old}

May 10th, 2016

I don’t think that I have ever met such a happy kid before! Sweet Vivienne was so full of smiles. I love the colors and mom and dad picked out for her, she looks great in pinky-peach. See that gold metallic block she is holding? That was one of my latest DIY projects. I found […]

 

I don’t think that I have ever met such a happy kid before! Sweet Vivienne was so full of smiles. I love the colors and mom and dad picked out for her, she looks great in pinky-peach. See that gold metallic block she is holding? That was one of my latest DIY projects. I found wooden blocks on clearance at Target so I glued some scrape booking paper on there that I already had at home and there you go! Fun, stylish, baby blocks! Another great find was the teal bench – gotta love shopping Home Goods for baby props! (I’m kind of addicted!)

Aurora Gloria: {10 Days New}

Isn’t she just the sweetest! I love this simple yet beautiful color set of light pink and creams with lace. That laundry basket used to belong to my grandmother! And both the cream and pink headbands were handmade by your truly.

Please meet the best big sister ever, Miss Kaitlyn; sweet little one-month-old, Miss Gabby Ariel; and {in remembrance of} Gabby’s beautiful identical twin sister, Gale Aurora.

It was truly a privilege to be asked by the Moltzan’s if I could create a photo for them that would include ALL of their children. As many of my friends and clients know, I have a soft spot in my heart for preemies and angel babies. Through my photography (and as an active photographer for NILMDTS), I strive for remembrance and awareness. Angie and Greg, I hope I have been able to provide you with a beautiful remembrance. xoxo

Callie: {14 Days New}

 Callie: {14 Days New} Sweet baby Callie came over to play with me today. Sometimes little ones have a tough time getting their pictures taken. It isn’t easy being so new to the world. Don’t worry, no matter what, we ALWAYS end our days with breathtaking memories.
