  • Newborn Session Info

Scottsdale Newborn PhotographerAs a Scottsdale newborn photographer most of my sessions take place in Scottsdale or my Paradise Valley home studio, however often times my clients book a studio session and want to do it in their home, which is how I shot this on-location newborn session! That means that many of my sessions are shot in surrounding cities, like Phoenix, Chandler and Glendale.

I switched to studio lighting last May and absolutely love the consistency it provides with my light, whether I’m shooting from my studio or in my client’s living room (like this session!)

Now, on to more important and namely adorable things: JOSHUA. Is he the most handsome baby?!! I died over how cute he was with each set up. Mostly because of that dimple that he kept flashing me!!!

Scottsdale Newborn PhotographerI looooooved him in this green–I’ve had this bonnet from Whatsoever things for over a year and never had the right backdrop to use it with, however this fabric matched it perfectly and this is my favorite of his set ups from the day!

save-the-date01My sister got engaged this summer (woot woot!!!) which I couldn’t be more thrilled about! They had their Sedona proposal captured by another local photographer however asked me to help them create something fun for their Save the Date cards! They wanted to include their fur baby Winston and the desert since many of their guests live around the country and will be traveling to Arizona for the wedding.

While engagement photos aren’t my niche (babies are my jam πŸ˜‰ ) I regularly photograph families and that is exactly what the three of them are: A family.

save-the-date02We had the most beautiful light to work with…shot this at one of my favorite desert preserves, this location is one of two that I’m using this fall for mini sessions! I have ONE MINI SESSION left for anyone interested, on Oct 16th at this spot at 3:45. Session is $275 and includes 30 min and your favorite 15 images from your gallery for download.

Okay, back to them and that beautiful light!!

Β save-the-date03We were all so impressed with how well Winston did! Believe it or not this giant is still a puppy! Save the date cards are a great way to get guests excited and to help plan for those traveling…and I just love that Winston took his job so seriously, haha.

save-the-date04I’ve really enjoyed watching my sister fall in love and start this next season in her life and am really excited to be gaining a brother-in-law too! Garret loves her well and they’re a perfect fit!

Scottsdale Newborn Photographer01Oh my goodness. I just loved this session and precious family!! Even though I’ve shot a lot of newborns as a Scottsdale newborn photographer, I can say I’ve never shot a session with siblings that are only eight months a part!! This family has such an amazing story…after years of waiting for a baby, Katie and Ray adopted beautiful Cora in December. Weeks later Katie found out she was PREGNANT. So these gorgeous little sisters will grow up as close as can be, sharing an age several months of the year along with a lot of other interests, hobbies and milestones. Both precious, both welcomed with whole gladness.

Cute little bear.

Scottsdale Newborn Photographer02Scottsdale Newborn Photographer03My favorite black and white images from the day…especially that middle one. Gah.

Scottsdale Newborn Photographer04So classic and pure.Wrap from Leighton Heritage.

Scottsdale Newborn Photographer05Love this color on Raelyn…blue on girls is probably my favorite.

This is a new headband that I’m OBSESSED with from The Dainty Miss, what do you think?!

Scottsdale Newborn Photographer06Headband from My Darling Emma. Neutral tones are my jam people, haha. This set up is one of my favorites that I use frequently.

Doesn’t Raelyn look so sweet and curly in this image?! She had the dreamiest skin.

Scottsdale Newborn Photographer07Katie opted for lifestyle images for their family photos, and I love how fresh and easy these were!

Scottsdale Newborn Photographer08Scottsdale Newborn Photographer09Shooting a sibling shot was…no joke, hahahaha. An eight month old and two week old was something I’ve never tried before πŸ˜‰ Core was down for it, but Raelyn wasn’t as impressed!

Scottsdale Newborn Photographer10Some of my favorites of each girl.

Scottsdale Newborn Photographer11And a BIG smile that is SO Cora to end it out…happy Thursday friends!

Enjoy life. Just like Cora πŸ˜‰

Phoenix ChildrenSummer is still blazing strong here in the desert πŸ˜‰ BUT I can feel a slight shift in the air and we’re feeling hopeful over here! As a Phoenix children’s photographer you’d think I’d have updated pictures of my own kids, but, you know, #photographerproblems #momproblems.

I’ve been rather neglectful with taking pictures of my own kids with my big girl camera, and am vowing to leave it out and take more of them this fall since they’re growing so fast (cue the crying).

Here’s to more pictures, to {hopefully} cooler weather and to sunny fall days ahead!!

Pictured here is Livia (4yr) and Locke (2yr).

paradise valley newborn photographer

This Paradise Valley newborn session took place in my home studio…and I just love the sweetness of Baby Jake and his family!! They felt like friends in my home, instantly. One of the advantages of coming to my home studio, in addition to having access to all my props and set ups, is that your baby’s siblings have access to toys and movies that are different from home! Big brother Collin had a blast going through my kids toy stash and it broke up his morning then too.

I love offering both on-location AND studio options which you can read about in my investment section. There really are such advantages for both depending on your family’s needs. If siblings get bored during the home studio session, daddy or grandma often whisks them away to the amazing splash pad on my street or our local Chic-Fil-A. Options I’m telling you πŸ˜‰

Sweet detail images…and maybe the best eyelashes I’ve ever seen on a newborn. Lucky boy.

3Erin Tole who I mentored with a year ago said that if you wait for it, babies always tend to smile in their mama’sΒ arms.

CASE IN POINT. Love his little smirk and Sydney couldn’t be a more gorgeous mama! He’s so lucky to have her.

paradise valley newborn photographer01Speaking of Erin, all my color images are edited with her actions from the Paint box set! I have all of her actions and presets, however Paintbox is hands down my favorite. (I typically use Totally Rad Actions for any skin work or black and white images.)

paradise valley newborn photographer10This was our last set up, and maybe my favorite light on Jake.

paradise valley newborn photographer02

This moody black and white on the left is hands down my favorite of Jake and Greg…there is something so strong and tender about it. And that little kiss Collin is giving “his new baby” was just precious. It might have also involved the exchange of some jelly beans, haha. Not above bribing over here πŸ˜‰

paradise valley newborn photographer03That little nose. I often wonder if they’ll keep their same profile as they develop…my kids look so different from their newborn photos. It’s one of the reasons it feels SO important to take pictures, they change so often and I don’t want to forget it.

paradise valley newborn photographer04Classic pose, classic black and white.

paradise valley newborn photographer05You know how people use the expression “I could just squeeeeeze you up!!!”

I use it. And I do it. πŸ˜‰ Hahahahaha. If there was ever a picture that captured my love for squishy baby cheeks!! He was nearing ten pounds and just had so much to squish and love about him.
