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!

Meet sweet Ms. Clara Bear! I’m so in love with those cheeks. Ms. Clara is the daughter of my friends Emily & Mike, whose wedding I also photographed.

newborn baby girl in crate wearing cream and pinkI always love the clean pure look that cream brings to photos. It’s often my go-to color scheme for parents who are unsure what colors they’d like to use.

It’s pretty rare that newborns smile, let alone that I just happen to have my camera ready to shoot the moment it happens! I just LOVE these moments!

Fawns

Guess what??? Our neighborhood was blessed this spring with two twin baby fawns! I am SOOOO in love! Those of you who haven’t been to the studio may not be aware that we are located about a mile back in the woods between 3 lakes, also known as the tri-lakes area of Lake Elmo. We […]

 

Guess what??? Our neighborhood was blessed this spring with two twin baby fawns! I am SOOOO in love! Those of you who haven’t been to the studio may not be aware that we are located about a mile back in the woods between 3 lakes, also known as the tri-lakes area of Lake Elmo. We get some spectacular wild life here, considering we are located so close to downtown Saint Paul. These two beauties have been top photography priority for me the last few weeks. It was pretty hard to catch them away from mama. Also, I’m probably a little biased but we have the best yard in the neighborhood, the local deer pass through one to two times per day! Every time I see the babies, I run up to the window and try to sweet talk them into coming closer- hoping they will get used to the sound of my voice. They seem intrigued! But mama does not.

GEAR:

Canon 5D Mark III
Tamron 150-600mm VC-
In case you haven’t read some of my other recent posts, I am in LOVE with this lens! So sharp!

ISO: 2500!

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.

 I have my friends and family to thank for helping my business start out and grow over 10 years ago. Yet, even after all this time, I am always the most honored when a friend chooses me to capture some of the most cherished memories of their lives. Mr. Zane is the handsome little boy of my good friend Taylor. Taylor and I worked together growing up. It has been so neat watching her become such and amazing mother.

I just love this photo of the two of them. So sweet ♥ Newborn boy in red santa bucket

I generally take off the month of December which means I haven’t many opportunities to photograph Christmas themed photos. I also did know we were going to be taking a Christmas photo- luckily I’ve become excellent at improvising over the years. You just never know what you can find in your closets that can really add to a seemingly simple photo such as this one.   Newborn boy with football

Another football fan. So many of the little boys who come by my studio start their love of sports from the day they are born.  Newborn boy close-up

I can’t wait to watch you grow up little man!

Mr. Kylan is so darn handsome and was a ton of fun to work with. We got great smiles and even managed to get a frog pose. I love this old wood crate that I found at an antique store in St. Peter, MN last month. Dad is big into photography so it was great having him there as my helper. When I get little boys in the studio, I often learn about the family’s love of sports. Check out the super cute knit hockey skates that Mom and Dad bought for this little guy. ♥  beautiful newborn boy studio photographyNewborn baby frog poseNewborn baby wearing skates  breaker

Nothing is more heart warming than when parents come back to see me to photograph the newborn photos of baby #2. This little man is adorable Zander. We had a lot of fun and he was such a good little guy for me. It was also the first time in a very long time where I walked away from a long newborn session of a naked baby where I stayed clean! For this session, I tried out my new wood style rubber floor by Baby Dream Backdrops. I love how portable it is and I think it gave the photos a great texture. I’ll be exited to use it again in the future.
