Christmas Newborn Photos

Christmas is my favorite time of year, it’s also my favorite time to photograph new babies. I love creating Christmas newborn photos. 

Sweet Aria visited me for her newborn session in November. Before we met, I had asked her mom her color preferences and she said she wasn’t a huge fan of red. That instantly set my mind whirring with plans for non-traditional Christmas images. 

With the “only a little red” plan in mind I set to work creating our Christmas palette. Silver and gold ended up being the theme that I carried throughout several setups. I brought in pretty pinks, dark blue and green, and a touch of red. I used all the glitter flowers for this session too!

Aria was a tiny little peanut who curled up perfectly in every pose I put her in. 

During the holidays I try to spend extra time with my own little family, so Christmas newborn sessions are limited. If you’re interested, please click the contact button get in touch so we can add you to the calendar as soon as possible. 

Groovy One First Birthday

I’ve been seeing a lot of retro themed sessions floating around the internet lately. A quick peek on Etsy shows some of the most popular first birthday items are totally “groovy!” I’m really hoping that these 70’s themed sessions will keep popping up because they are just so much fun!

I was so excited when I finally got my first request for a Groovy One first birthday session. I’ve been waiting so patiently! Even better, my client requested a more muted color scheme with a touch of boho, and gave me free rein on creating the set. Mama sent me photos of baby girl’s outfits and I custom colored all of the pieces to make sure they’d match perfectly. I love when clients trust the process! It’s so rewarding to see their faces when they step into the studio and see their baby’s set for the first time! For this session I incorporated peace signs, word and flower cutouts and of course a vintage bus. A few grass pieces and wooden beads helped steer us ever so slightly towards boho. Sparkly gold bead curtains on a pink backdrop were the finishing touches.

Little Miss wore the cutest outfits, and even daisy sunglasses! I know her mama must have had the most fun shopping!
