Newborn – baby M

This sweet little baby and his family were so fun to photograph. It was my first time using the poof, and a few other tools so Kristen was kind enough to come as my assistant. Mom found me via Google and since baby was already a week old when she called we didn’t have a chance to meet in person before the shoot (I photograph newborns 10 days old and newer). Walking in their home I knew right away our styles would work great together. And baby M stayed asleep for over an hour at the beginning (even though we were all sweating keeping him happily warm) so I got to do lots of fun poses; here are some of my favorites.










We had already shot in the nursery (with hand-painted murals and artwork by mom and dad) and I was looking around the house to find a spot to lay baby in the knitted cocoon thing. Mom said we could use their room and I said, “You’ve been holding out on me!” when I saw this tapestry on their wall. I knew ahead of time that mom and dad wanted skin on skin baby pictures so I had figured out some poses ahead of time, but Kristen helped pose this shot on the fly and I love it! They ordered a large print that I’m sure is going to be the star of the wall grouping they planned.
I love photographing families and new families with tiny babies are just so sweet. I love going to their homes and seeing tiny baby things everywhere!

    I am so IN LOVE with your new baby photographs. I have a 4 month old and would have loved some brand new baby shots. If you ever come to San Francisco please let me know. I would hire you in a minute! 🙂

  5. Thank you so much, I am loving shooting newborns but man give me a squishy 6-8 month old… I just love them! Yes, I do travel, let me know if you are interested in more details, basically there just has to be enough people wanting sessions in the area for it to be feasible. Talk to your friends 🙂
