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.

Family Photo Shoot

This family photo shoot took place back in 2015, another old session that I never blogged about.   This family was so fun and their outfits were spot on.  I later got to take a few more pictures of the parents when they took part in a local Living Nativity Performance as Mary and Joseph. These pictures were taken in Downtown Claremont, a favorite spot to shoot.   The kids were so full and life and so fun and did amazing for the pictures.  Kids grow and change so quickly, it is so important to capture them in their many stages of childhood.  Here are just a few of my favorites from that shoot.

6 Month Photo Shoot

This 6 month photo shoot was part of a themed calendar photo shoot, which I will be showing you the entire year next week.  We had fun stylizing the shots for the monthly calendar pictures and definitely got some family shots also.

I love photographing babies around 6 months old as they are really starting to become so curious and aware of what is happening around them.   I will often tell people my favorite age of my own kids was between 6 months and 18 months as they learn and grow so much, and haven’t hit the “terrible-twos” yet.

This shoot took place in early 2015.  Here are a few of my personal favorites from the shoot.

Family Photo Shoot

I had the privilege of taking this family’s picture a couple of years ago.   Two years ago we did a beach session, this time we decided to change it up and do more of a woody’s nature photo shoot.  I also did a really quick mini-session for the oldest daughter, but I will show those in a separate post.  The Dad was really feeling under the weather, but he was such a trooper and came and smiled for the pictures despite how awful he felt.

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.

Scott Family Photo Shoot

Yesterday the Scott family came over to view their galleries.  This is by far one of my favorite parts of my jobs.  I love watching their reactions, love seeing the joy and happiness that seeing the pictures brings them.  There are always a few surprises as to which pictures are their favorites.  Sometimes a picture I just liked ends up being one of their absolute favorites.   Seeing how happy the pictures make them is why I keep doing this, why I love this job.

They were such a fun family to photograph too; their outfits were perfect, the girls were beyond adorable and it really was just a lot of fun.  I have been photographing more newborns lately, which I completely love and adore doing, but this shoot helped me remember how wonderful it is to photograph families too.

H. Newborn Baby Sweetness!

Every photographer has an area they really love.  Some love shooting weddings (not me), some love Seniors or couples, me- I think photographing newborn babies has become my favorite.

This sweet little guy was just four days old!   These first time parents were so wonderful to work with and dad was happy to jump right in and help wherever needed.  The baby *ahem* rewarded him at the end for it too and he took it like a champ!
