And, this little cutie is another Isabella!! I met her mom at SF Parenting, an event in Boca Raton. This mom realized that she had been so busy that she had forgotten about making sure that she had images of Isabella to mark this age. We decided to make it an on-location session; choosing a great South Florida park. One of my cuddly bunnies was a perfect match for Isabella as well as with her adorable dress in pink and white. As the sun was slowly setting, we looked for areas with light streaming in and Florida foliage. Isabella rocked her session, flitting around just as a 3-year-old would. We did get her to settle a bit and read one of my studio books about animals to the ever-so-attentive bunny. We finished just before the rains came in, with a beautiful rainbow crossing the sky behind us as we packed up to leave. I look forward to more sessions down the road with this little cutie with the big brown eyes!
Darling little Isabella had her first photo session in my studio before she was born when her mom and dad had their maternity session. What a lovely couple – we had so much fun. Mom, Natalie, loved my newborn dresses, donning three during her session in the studio. They were back when Isabella was but only 6 days old. She was a dream to shoot – sleeping peacefully through a number of prop changes. My favorite setups from that session were the deep purple felt, fur, and basket with matching headband–I will post her newborn session at a later date.
In this blog post, you will find images from Isabella’s 3 month, 6 month, and 9 month sessions! Yes, the family took advantage of the BABY PLAN discounts and purchased a total of 6 sessions for their daughter’s first year. A 3 month old can be difficult to photograph, as she is constantly moving her hands and feet. Having said that, we positioned her to capture some adorable shots. She did fall asleep on us, leading to some other beautiful images in my
For her 6 month session, we had fun being playful with Isabella on the little tufted bed and floor setup. She was so cute in my pink tutu one-piece outfit and her own pink tutu and my cute butterfly wings! Mom even brought in her handmade – I believe by a family member – christening gown – you will see it is absolutely beautiful.
For her 9 month session, mom brought in a couple of very pretty outfits. My favorite is the purple and white starched top and pant set! Isabella loved my little felt bunny. Aren’t her feet adorable in the one close-up shot? And, little Isabella had us laughing while seated in my white chair in her bright blue one-piece outfit. More to come of sweet little Isabella! I will post her newborn session as well as her 1-year Smash-the-Cake session.
Little, petit Gabriella!
It was such a joy to have Gabriella, her parents and her maternal grandmother in my studio! They were a pleasure to work with and we had such a wonderful time.
I had a number of setups ready for 13-day-old Gabriella, but she had other plans for the day. Despite a rather fussy day for her, we were able to get some very beautiful shots of her. She did not stay asleep very long, so I had to work fast to capture her still and serene. The parents were so patient, hopeful that we would at least get a few photos. And we did! I absolutely love the floral background with Gabriella’s soft, cream-colored outfit. Mom and Dad were so proud – and very happy to have her here.
We used many different pieces for Gabriella but my absolute favorite was the bonnet. It was so exquisite—so soft and petit!
Her teeny, tiny feet were so adorable! We were continually in awe of them during the entire shoot. They will never again be that
Gabriella has a beautiful bow-shaped mouth and long eyelashes. Her skin is very creamy and soft.
Best wishes to this family with their first little one! I hope to see you back in my studio, Gabriella!!
Newborn baby Harper Jean is absolutely adorable. This little gal was so sleepy (needed for perfect newborn photography posing) for her newborn photography debut , but her siblings were adorable and so gentle with her – the images came out great! The parents requested a bunny outfit for Harper Jean and, oh my, how precious she looked with her chubby cheeks. We were all obsessed with the photos and how cute they turned out.
The photographs with the siblings were a lot of fun to take as they were so attentive with baby Harper Jean. They truly love having a baby sister and wanted to capture as many photos as possible. This family is so precious, and I’m so glad I was able to capture the pure love emanating from each with the new addition to their family. I am so fortunate to be asked to document this new chapter in their lives as their family and child photographer. The image with Harper Jean in the vintage carriage with her siblings lovingly looking down on her, was a multi-composite image to get all of the pieces perfect. This beautiful, touching image was selected to grace the cover of a PB Parenting Magazine cover.
The parents were so thrilled to find out that I had a bunny costume to use to photograph Harper. We all giggled while taking the photos as Harper was just adorable with her chubby cheeks and beautiful skin. Capturing most of the images with natural tones to give a timeless, natural look was what I was going for in this shoot. This baby is pure cuteness!! Here are a few from this fun and cute newborn and family session, including one I was able to capture of big sister reading one of my books – enjoy!
I had an amazing time during our session with the handsome newborn Zain. He was 9 days old when he had his first photo shoot in our studio. Zain was such joy to shoot with his funny expressions and head full of hair. The day of our shoot, Zain was very restless, so needless to say, there was a lot of rocking of baby, great use of my “Shusher” gadget, and lots of laughter. Although we had a restless baby, we were able to get a full range of images of newborn Zain in various setups and wraps, clothing, etc, all provided by our studio. And, we did capture a few of him and his parents even though he would not go into a deep sleep. From this, were able to create a small gallery of black and white as well as color images of him and each parent and the new family as a whole that still look adorable and definitely captured the love of his enthralled and happy parents. And, we had a large gallery of beautiful images of this handsome little man named Zain. The family loves their album, their mini-accordion albums, 16×16 collage with quote, and other five art prints that resulted.
Welcome to the world, Zain!!
Zain’s father is the owner of a surf shop in Delray Beach, FL. He wanted to capture his passion with his newborn son, so he brought in one of his mini skateboards that represent most of the boards sold in his shop. Zain looked so precious in the photos on the skateboard. The family, especially the grandparents, were so thrilled that we were able to capture such beautiful and meaningful photos.
The parents really wanted to use the photos around their home as well as gifts for the family. So we tailored the session to the colors of their living room as well as Zain’s bedroom, which included grays and blues. They also chose great products to highlight the session including a 12 image collage with a beautiful quote that is on a stand-alone fine art print that can be framed. We also did a collage of 3 detailed images of Zain’s hands, feet and head that can be framed as a trio for his bedroom. Everything turned out absolutely stunning!
The grandparents and other family members loved their gifted mini-accordion albums with 12 images in each created by the parents of Zain. They can fit in a purse or be laid out standing on a table or wherever they desire. They also chose an album to showcase their favorite 40 images to be able to look back on this very special time in their lives over and over again. This is more important than digitals stored on a computer. I just loved the look on mom’s face when I met with her to hand over her product. What a precious family – I am honored to be their photographer!
