Cutest little newbie!

I am always excited when parents have personal items to incorporate into the newborn photo session. These awesome parents had some really fun and unique props that made for some really sweet photos with a personal touch. This little guy took a little while to fall asleep but once he was out we got some darling pictures. Here are my favorite photos of this loving threesome:

Brothers, Balloons & Bubbles

With a first birthday around the corner, we took photos of this loving family before the birthday celebration. We held the session at their home and the boys were sweet and silly with loads of smiles. I always love when bubbles and balloons are used as props because they are so fascinating to the little ones and make for some really sweet expressions. Here are my favorite photos from the shoot:

Fire trucks and tutus

This gorgeous family welcomed their sweet angel to their family and I was so lucky to get to document this special time in their lives. We did a variety of different shots from family, individuals of the kids and the siblings together. At first, big brother was a little unsure of posing with his sister but all of a sudden he leaned over and gave her a kiss and my heart completely melted. So many beautiful moments captured as the love and warmth was felt throughout. Here are a handful of favorites:

Party of Five

Newborn baby Paul was just 5 days new at our photo shoot. He was warmly received by older sisters Ella and Brynnley who expressed so much love toward each other and their baby brother.

Malibu beach house shoot

The beach is one of my favorite places to do shoots. This shoot was done at a home in Malibu while the family was on vacation and it was the perfect location. We had the beach style home to use as well as the actual beach which provided lots of great locations. We had perfect weather, happy kids and a wonderful location making this one of my favorite family shoots to date. I had such a hard narrowing down my selects but here they are!
