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.

3Erin 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.

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.

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 😉

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. 😉 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.

scottsdale newborn photographer1I see a lot of babies as a Scottsdale newborn photographer and they’re all precious to me…but you gotta know that with a name like Spencer you’re going to be stinking cute 😉

CASE IN POINT LOOK HOW CUTE HE IS!!

But those cheeks. And full head of hair. And curled up little body. I was dyyying.

scottsdale newborn photographer2Bonnet is from Persnickety Knits on my new favorite jersey backdrop! We did this session on location in the family’s home–I offer several different types of newborn sessions, and love that I have both a studio and on location option for convenience.

scottsdale newborn photographer3I’m trying to challenge myself with something at each session these days…I rarely shoot on white. It’s been, I don’t know, three years?! I love how simple and pure this turned out though and am so glad I am trying new things.

scottsdale newborn photographer4This one is my favorite…the angle, pose and baby. All perfection.

Bonnet from Whatsoever Things and Flokati from RugsUSA.

scottsdale newborn photographer5Those rolls.

scottsdale newborn photographer6And that lower lip!! What. A. Pout. I’m so curious as to whether he’ll continue with that lower lip pout throughout his childhood or if it’s a fluke that my camera caught that day, hahaha. Either way it’s adorable!!

scottsdale newborn photographer7The non-pout version, equally perfect. I’m pretty sure that his parents thought I was crazy when I asked for a pair of scissors to cut my back drop for a perfectly matched wrap–for the life of me I couldn’t find one so I made do in the moment!

I love how it turned out, what do you think?

scottsdale newborn photographerGah. Love this one too. I’d blow it up as a big canvas for the nursery I think…

phoenix newborn photographer01One of the things I enjoy about being a Phoenix newborn photographer is the intimacy of home lifestyle sessions…there is something truly wonderful and casual about being in a family’s home that tells their story. While my studio sessions are just as adorable for completely different reasons, lifestyle sessions capture the family for who they are and it’s wonderfully telling.

This little doll is Skyler and she’s been highly anticipated 😉

phoenix newborn photographer02You may recognize Josephine and Kendall from their spring mini maternity session!

Also, I love this one so much. Kendall’s lashes. Skyler’s profile. Josephine’s smile.

phoenix newborn photographer03Kendall was mostly too busy being two to take pictures but I love the candid shots we got!

phoenix newborn photographer04phoenix newborn photographer05phoenix newborn photographer06You know me and my obsession with baby feet by now 😉

phoenix newborn photographer07phoenix newborn photographer08phoenix newborn photographer09THIS is how the session went with miss-busy-pants!!  Hahahahahaha.

phoenix newborn photographer10phoenix newborn photographer11That middle one…and her little feet on the right on Tim’s chest. Gah.

phoenix newborn photographer12She was unamused. I’m glad her parents thought I was funny! Seriously though, Kendall is such a fun rambunctious, curious toddler, can’t wait to see her as a big sister!

Scottsdale lifestyle newborn photographer01

I absolutely love that my job allows me to explore the neighborhoods of Phoenix and its surrounding areas in addition to the fact that I get to meet new friends and adorable little families. Being a Scottsdale lifestyle newborn photographer brought me to this family’s doorstep last weekend and I couldn’t have been more thrilled!

Hana was a dream to work with and her parents were so warm and friendly. Seriously, I have the best job in the world.

Scottsdale lifestyle newborn photographer02

This. Angle.

Scottsdale lifestyle newborn photographer03Hana was a breach baby up until her delivery 😉

There were several adorable things she did with her legs throughout the session that made it really obvious, hahaha.

Scottsdale lifestyle newborn photographer05Hana’s expression here!! She’s like, hold up mom and dad. Don’t get too comfortable!

Scottsdale lifestyle newborn photographer06I love seeing a hands on Dad. Phil was attentive to both his girls throughout the session.

Scottsdale lifestyle newborn photographer07Rachelle was glowing throughout the session. Such a lovely mama, so thrilled to have her girl earth side.

Scottsdale lifestyle newborn photographer08This one is my favorite of the family…I think it should be a large print or float wrap above that bed!!

Scottsdale lifestyle newborn photographer09Doesn’t Hana have great hair?!

Scottsdale lifestyle newborn photographer10I don’t understand what’s so cute about baby yawns…but they’re seriously so stinking cute!!

Scottsdale lifestyle newborn photographer11Wrap is from Leighton Heritage, tie back is from Devoted Knits.

Being a breach baby, Miss Hana loooooooved being wrapped like this 😉

Scottsdale lifestyle newborn photographer12Probably my favorite image of the day…baby’s are wonderfully and surprisingly soulful.

Scottsdale lifestyle newborn photographer13Those brand new flaky feet!! See more lifestyle newborn sessions here and here!

Scottsdale lifestyle newborn photographer14Ending with a smile and some sweet dreams.

Scottsdale Newborn Session01This Scottsdale newborn session could not have gone anymore perfectly! You may recognize Alex from his recent Fresh 24 session, and his pretty mama and sister from their desert maternity session…but this magic was the cumulation of what I’ve been waiting for 😉

Alex’s Fresh 24 session initiated a series dose of baby fever for me and I can’t say that his newborn session did anything to help me curb it…mercy. I’m still asking you all to send help, I need to be done having babies. One of my friends upon hearing of my baby fever said that I am in a dangerous line of work.

For. Reals.

Scottsdale Newborn Session02This was my first shot of these two together, I could not believe how perfect they were!!

Mia is already so tender and protective of her baby…

Scottsdale Newborn Session03Moody perfection.

Scottsdale Newborn Session04Mia’s expressions were to DIE for!!! She’s the best.

Scottsdale Newborn Session05Growing up…I shot Mia’s newborn photos two years ago…and her 6mo and 12mo photos 😉 She wins the awards for best baby thighs, fewest baby smiles, and easiest toddler/sibling role at a newborn session to date! Love her.

Scottsdale Newborn Session06Snuggled up where he likes to be.

Scottsdale Newborn Session07The next two bonnets are both from Whatsoeverthings–she’s probably my go-to boy baby vendor 😉

Scottsdale Newborn Session08Scottsdale Newborn Session19Bonnet from Persnickety Knits.

Scottsdale Newborn Session13His little furrowed brow! So, so sweet.

Scottsdale Newborn Session14Just chilling, hahahaha. Don’t all boys pose like this?!

Scottsdale Newborn Session15Scottsdale Newborn Session16My FAVORITE of the three of them!! I die over Mia’s hands on Holly’s head. I couldn’t have coached her if I tired, and this was not a composite. In related news, miracles still happen friends 😉

Scottsdale Newborn Session18This image was a quick, last minute shot. We did the session on location in Holly’s home, and as I was packing up my studio lights I looked over and saw them, together on the couch, sweet as canbe. I grabbed my camera and snapped a quick photo and love how real it is to the season the three of them are in.
