Newborn Baby Girl

As I photographer, I often reflect on what my favorite part of the job is.  It is definitely not updating my website- as I am so far behind on doing that.  But what I love is, the interactions.  The joy of seeing families together, especially the brand new parents with their new baby.  I love being able to capture these precious moments for the family, moments that pass by way too quickly.   This newborn little girl I actually photographed back in September, but am finally sharing the pictures on my website now.  She was an angel and slept almost the entire session.  I love being able to capture the little details too, as they grow up and change so quickly.   Here are just a few of my favorites from their gallery.

Newborn Twin Girls

I do love photographing newborns, and earlier this year I had the privilege of photographing newborn twin girls!  Since becoming a newborn photographer, the majority of my newborns have been boys, so to have two newborn girls to photograph at once was heavenly!  Twins don’t always like to sleep at the same time, to any parents dismay, but we were able to get an amazing gallery and just had to work a little harder to get them sleeping at the same time.  Here are just a few of my favorite pictures from newborn girl shoot.

Newborn Twin Photo Shoot

There are many sessions I haven’t shared here, but in my attempt to catch up I decided to jump to my most recent shoot of newborn twins.  This little guy and girl were born early and came to my home studio for their session after they were both released from the NICU.  This session meant so much to me, as not only was this my first set of newborn twins, but these two were about the exact same size that my youngest child was when he was released from the NICU.  It brought back so many memories holding these sweet babies.

I love that even at such a young age they already have little personalities.  The boy loved to snuggle up to his sister; she on the other hand pushed him away a few times.  It was a great session and here are some of my personal favorites from the shoot.  Dad is a police officer, so we had fun incorporating his gear for a few shots.

3 Month Old Girl Photo Shoot

This cute little girl came this fall for her photo-shoot at 3-months-old.  Her Dad used to be my daughter’s soccer coach, it is always fun to meet up with old friends.  Her mom brought some of the cutest outfits and pearls, as what girl doesn’t need pearls?  She would be happy and smiling one minute, then mad the next but we just went with what she gave us and got some adorable pictures.

4 Month Old Boy Photo Shoot

I was so excited to do this 4-month-old little guy’s photo shoot as it meant I would get to hang out with his mom again.  His mom and I met at a SoCal blogging conference and had an awesome time together.  Then we had more fun crafting together at a Craftastic Saturday, at which time she was pregnant.   When she asked me to take her little guy’s picture, I couldn’t have been happier to do so.  I actually took this shoot before Halloween, so we got some fall pictures and she also wanted pictures for her Christmas card.  Now that the Christmas Cards have been sent out, I am sharing some of my favorites from the shoot.

Family Photo Shoot

I actually took these pictures almost two months ago now!  This family was so fun to photograph.  When I arrived I told the kids (and the Dad) that if I did my job right, not only would they get good pictures but we would have a lot of fun too.  The hour seemed to fly by and I am happy to say I did my job! The kids were happy, and the Dad told me not to move anywhere as they were hiring me for the next twenty years.  Here are a few of my favorites from their photo shoot.

High School Senior Girl Photo Shoot

I shot this High School Girl shoot well over a month ago, in fact I have many photo shoots that I have taken in the last month and I am finally trying to play catchup.

I cannot believe this beautiful girl is going to be graduating from high school!  I got to know her about 6 years ago when my family moved to Southern California.  At the time she was young girl who loved making videos with Littlest Pet Shops.  It has been amazing and awesome to see how much she has grown and matured.  She has hopes of some day being an actress and loves acting in her high school’s plays and musicals.  She truly has a good heart and a very easy smile.  We had such a fun time taking her pictures, she is a natural in front of the camera.

A Preemie Baby Turns Four!

When you have your first child you go into it thinking you know some things but are completely terrified of everything you do not.   You soon realize that you were right, there is a lot you don’t know; but you will also be amazed at all you can do.  When your second child comes, you go into it with a little more confidence.   So when I was pregnant with my third child, I felt like ‘I’ve got this!’.

But as life likes to do, it throws a wrench in things.  While on vacation hundreds of miles from home, my son was unexpectedly born 8 weeks early.   After 19 days in the NICU he was finally able to released and we could make the long trip home.  This July was 4 years from when he should have been born, so I am finally sharing the pictures I took in May from his 4-year-old birthday shoot.

December Newborn Baby Girl Photo Shoot

Hope your New Year is starting off right!  My family had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to a new year.  Right before Christmas I had the privilege of photographing not one but two newborn baby girls.   I will share some of my favorite pictures from the first shoot this week.

This sweet little girl is this couple’s first baby.  It is always so fun to see first parent’s reactions and talk with them about adjusting to being parents.  It always brings back so many memories of what it was like when my three were newborns.  Since she is a December baby we had to do some cute Christmas shots too.
