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 😉
Sweet detail images…and maybe the best eyelashes I’ve ever seen on a newborn. Lucky boy.
Erin Tole who I mentored with a year ago said that if you wait for it, babies always tend to smile in their mama’s arms.
CASE IN POINT. Love his little smirk and Sydney couldn’t be a more gorgeous mama! He’s so lucky to have her.
Speaking 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.)
This was our last set up, and maybe my favorite light on Jake.
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 😉
That 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.
Classic pose, classic black and white.
You know how people use the expression “I could just squeeeeeze you up!!!”
I use it. And I do it. 😉 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.
