Oh, how I love photographing newborns. They’re so soft and snugly and have that awesome new baby smell. As a mother to three young boys, I know all too well that these first few months go way too fast. As the saying goes … the days are long, but the years are short. Parenthood is a grueling job, but when you gaze on those sweet little cheeks and perfect little toes you realize it’s all worth it. I spent the day with the B family a few weeks ago and captured these sweet moments with their new baby girl. They wanted a mix of indoor and outdoor shots so we hung out at their house in the morning then met up in the afternoon for a quick mini-session. I love the sweet emotion captured in these images.

Last month I held a day of mini-sessions and loved seeing several of my favorite repeat clients as well as meeting quite a few awesome new families. I tried something new this time and offered a variety of both morning and evening sessions and I really loved the results. Morning sessions and evening sessions have two very different feels to them and it was fun to be able to play around with both. Here are just a few images from the day I wanted to share with you. Enjoy!
This sweet baby is Miss Bridget from this san diego newborn session I posted. She has grown SO much in such a short period of time!
In my 29 years of life (ahem, ok so 32) I have learned a lot about life and relationships. One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned is that good friends, I mean REALLY good friends, are one of life’s greatest treasures. Eddie and Heather are those kind of treasures. We’ve known them for about 8 years now, they’re our oldest son’s godparents, and they’re some of the nicest, most genuine people you will ever meet. They recently welcomed a daughter into the world and I can tell you this (or in Texas they might say “I tell you whut”) sweet Autumn is one loved baby girl. She’s so lucky to have Eddie and Heather as parents. They have loved on our kids for the past five years and I’m so excited that now it’s our turn to love on their sweet little lady.
Last month I teamed up with the wonderful folks at Matilda Jane Clothing for a fun day of mother/daughter photoshoots. We all had such a fun girly day together! (something I don’t get to experience very often because my house is typically filled with light saber duels and wrestle mania, ha!). Moms and daughters alike had a blast picking out their outfits and dressing up for our fashion photoshoot. Here are a few of my favorites from the day!
Here are a few images from the family session I had with Matilda Jane trunk keeper Carrie. : )
