Photographing precious newborn babies is such fun for so many reasons. As a mom, I am no longer in the “baby phase” of life and I miss those tiny little humans. I get my fix each and every time I get to photograph a newborn. I also absolutely love watching parents in the early stages of parenthood. There is such a newness, a love that is so rich and full- and I get to capture it for them. This sweet baby girl was perfectly sleepy throughout her session with me. I love the pictures we took and had such a great time documenting the love in this home.
In the last month I have taken a handful of personal photos that I wanted to share. First, I brought my camera to the Mother’s Day celebration with my family. It has been 6 months since the birth of my niece and we had not yet captured a photo of the six grandkids/cousins together so I thought it would be great to try. We did a photo with just the kids and one with my mom. The next photo session I did was for my husband’s birthday. I do not capture photos of him nearly as often as I should and thought I should try to capture this special time in his life. The last day I had my camera was Father’s Day. I brought it with both sides of our family to capture and document these times in our lives.
It was a beautiful afternoon when we captured the love and sweet moments of this gorgeous family in this beautiful setting. Holmby Park is a go-to location for me as it is central to many of the families I work with and has such a nice variety of greenery and “looks”. The addition of the skateboards was a great and personal touch. There were many sweet moments with the boys and the family, a mix of candids and portraits. Here are my selects from our most recent mini session!
It is fun to step in to a family’s home and capture photos in a place that is a new creative canvas for me. This family had recently moved into a new home and wanted to capture some sweet new photos. We started with a more dressed up series of images and then took a more intimate and playful approach with a pajama party filled with laughs. I loved showcasing both sides and adore the pictures we took!
One of my favorite parts of my job is getting to meet new families step into their world for a short time. I get to watch their family dynamic and capture moments to freeze in time. This family was a joy to work with. The girls were over the moon to welcome their baby brother. They each wanted a turn to cuddle him for a photo, so much love and joy was captured in these precious moments. On newborn sessions, I strive to catch a variety of family pictures sibling shots and solo photos of the baby in those sweet little sleepy poses. Here are the pictures we took!
This was my third shoot with this amazing family. The first shoot was when their precious little girl was just a baby, the second shoot was done when they were building their new home and this shoot was in their new home! It is so cool to photograph families over time and watch the children grow before my eyes. This time the kids were so grown up, enthusiastic and energetic. It was wonderful to see how they have matured yet still had the sweet innocence that only a child can have. All-in-all it was a wonderful shoot. Here they are:
I photographed Mason about a year and a half ago and it was really fun to see how he has grown and changed! Well, he recently became a big brother to baby Owen and was so sweet with his little bro. Owen was darling and very photogenic. These boys were wonderful to photograph and it was great to see this family again. Here are my favorites!
