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}

June 7th, 2014

 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.

{Emmie} 12 days new

This winter I had the honor of photographing beautiful baby girl Emmie Lorah. She was just perfect, pink, and Daddy’s little girl. I have a love for hanging those little ones from the tree branches and for little Emmie I purchased and comfy new wrap for her to lay in. The branch is from from a birch tree that I cut down from out on the woods and drilled holes in to fit the tops of my light stands. All in all, I think it turned out pretty darn cute.

Newborns are one of my favorite subjects. The trick to perfect newborn photos it to get the little ones in the studio when they are under 2 weeks old. The younger they are the more creative the posing can be. Sometimes mom doesn’t quite feel ready to leave the house yet in this time. That’s ok. Just let me know and I can bring my studio setup to you.

And I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again… accidents are going to happen. Little ones are going to have something come out of them from some angle at least a few time during the session. Don’t worry, I’ll be prepared and try not to feel bad. We got this cute pink shot above right before Emmie decided to water herself, the blanket, the floor, oh… and Dad. 🙂newborn baby girl st paul mn

Welcome to the world little Emmie Lorah! I can’t wait to watch you grow!  xoxo

Welcome to the world beautiful baby boy! Tristan is the son of my friend’s Simona and Jory. So, Simona walks in the studio and says “so what do you have planned for Tristan today?” And I tell her… “Well I cut down a tree at my parents this week and I’m going to hang your baby from it. Let’s do this!” Luckily it turned out pretty precious. He fit so snug in the old laundry basket too. So cute! Newborns are my favorite to shoot and I feel so blessed that they have only been in this world for a few short days and then I get to spend time capturing their beautiful little faces. I do love my job!

What a handsome little man you are baby Owen! I had so much fun doing this photo session. Newborns are a joy to work with. I was so excited to use a few new props I had and I think they worked out really well. Owen looks so cute in the little wicker basket and I love the old kitchen scale I found at an antique shop. And of course, what a cute little peanut he is in that adorable blue and brown hat. I just love them all! What a great day! 🙂
