I love to see my newborn babies become big brothers and sisters, especially when they are so sweet about it. Carter became Charlotte’s big brother two weeks ago and I got to capture some of the cuteness overload on camera. This sweet little girl decided to surprise Mommy and Daddy a few weeks early so she was teeny tiny and so cute to work with! Thank you for sharing her with me guys…enjoy all of this adorable everyone!

So funny…I get asked this question all the time. Do babies smile or is it just gas? After 15 years of photographing these amazing little people, I can say without a doubt in my mind…YES THEY DO! If you have ever been lucky enough to watch a baby sleep for an extended period of time, you will see every emotion imaginable. They pout, cry, startle, twitch, smile and sometimes even laugh as they dream. My question is and will continue to remain…what are they dreaming about?

Here’s a small sampling, tell me what you think…:)

I had the pleasure of photographing these little cuties for their newborn, one year and now two year old sessions! It has been so much fun getting to know them, they are walking, talking balls of energy and smiles. I always look forward to my time with Gianna and Sabrina and their adorable parents.

You may remember a previous post with twin babies in a cowboy boot and milk pail about two years ago, well this is them in all their toddler glory now! We headed to Descanso Gardens in La Canada for the shoot, apparently one photo session a year is included with the membership now, such great news!! If you live in the San Gabriel Valley or surrounding areas Descanso is great and now even better as a photo shoot location option.

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to capture little Shane! He was so cute and had the most AMAZING smile. He was such a happy little guy, I loved it! Below are some of my favorite images from our session, it was so hard to choose! Thank you so much for sharing him with me guys.

On a totally separate note, I love when I am reminded how small this world is that we live in, especially in a big city like LA. I had a 7 degrees of separation moment with Shane’s parents Frannie and Jordan while I was photographing their little guy. Jordan works for a fantastic company called UpFront Ventures. They host a summit every year in the LA area and the last two years I was asked to photograph the event. It was such an amazing experience and fascinating to hear about new and creative innovations. If you are involved in the Venture Capital arena in any way shape or form you have to come to their 2016 Summit, hopefully I will see you there! Newborn_Baby_Boy_Milk_Pail

Shane was so cute in his little milk pail prop and kept doing the most adorable smiles. We were able to incorporate a blanket made specially for him and his arrival as well. I love using textiles or props that are unique to my families when I can.

A few weeks ago I got to photograph the beautiful Madison Ivie! Matt & Lara were wonderful to work with and so cute with their baby girl. We were lucky enough to have help from Madison’s Grandmother, I just love that! I had a ton of family support when I had my babies and sessions like these remind me of those times and how special it was. Here are just a few of my favorites from our session. Thank you so much for sharing your little cutie with me guys! I hope you had a wonderful first Father’s Day Matt! Mom_Dad_Newborn

I love having the window light come from behind for a few shots, it creates a wonderful ethereal light.

I love using these ruffle diaper covers when babies are on their tummies, it is such a sweet look for baby girls.

I recently purchased a few new headbands for baby girls from EdenWillowProps on etsy, I love the way this one looks on Madison. So sweet!

This scale is and will probably always be my favorite prop. I just love how rustic it is and how timeless it looks. This diaper cover and headband set is also from etsy from My2lilPixies, check out their adorable newborn props.
