Morgan Mathews Photography Reno Child Photographer | Aruke

Morgan Mathews Photography Reno Child Photographer | Aruke

Being a photographer in the Reno area is such a dream come true for me. I love being able to photograph these sweet babies and watch them grow. Aruke is one of the babies that I have been able to see grow. I started photographing Aruke when she was a newborn, and every year since then! It has been so much fun to see her grow and change. Aruke has come to see me at 2 of my three studios in Reno and Sparks which makes her a veteran. 🙂

She is a beautiful and smart little girl that teaches me a lot of things every time she comes. This session is from Arukes 3 year session and she was just precious! She coordinated all of her own outfits for this session and it was so much fun to see her personality bloom. I love 3 year olds. I feel like the know for sure what they like and do not like, and they understand that they will get a treat at the end of their session. Its so much fun!

These three photos were from the last set of Aruke’s session and they are my favorite. I love how soft and girlie they are. I also love Arukes sweet smile and that she was holding her heart for her dad. 🙂
Aruke picked this dress from my studio closet and the headband, and I think they suit her perfectly! I have a whole closet full of beautiful dresses, headbands, ties, and other goodies for your sessions. I love being able to dress up these sweet girls since I only have boys.

Reno Newborn Photographer | Andrew

Reno Newborn Photographer | Andrew

Andrew’s mom was referred to me from a previous newborn client and friend. It is always such a huge compliment when my clients refer their friends and family to come and see me. Andrew was such a sweet newborn and loved to be cuddled. Andrew was the smallest newborn that I photographed in 2016 and one of the last! He was a good way to end my year. Andrew’s mom wanted to see browns and lots of neutral colors for his session. I love neutral colors and hadn’t had a boy in all neutrals for a few months, so it was so much fun. I was able to knit up so really cute blankets, and my mom made me some extra small hats that would fit this sweet little guy!

One of the things that I love about being a Reno Newborn Photographer is being able to provide my clients with custom sessions. I love being able to knit new things or have new items made so that their session is perfect for their family. I also love that their session will never look like any of my other sessions. Newborn sessions are so special and I feel like every single one should be a reflect of the family.

Andrew’s parents brought a few props with them for their session. I love being able to help parent’s bring their ideas to life.

Reno Newborn Photography | Hannah

Reno Newborn Photography | Hannah

Hannah was such a beautiful baby and so much fun to photograph. I loved her darling red hair and her sweet little button nose. Hannah had some of the best expressions I have ever seen from a newborn. She was flashing smiles, blowing bubbles, and let me know when she would rather not do something. I did not see her eyes until the very end of our session, but she would scowl at me from time to time. I can’t wait to see her again. I have a fell that Hannah is going to be full of personality!

I love that Hannah’s mom went with some nontraditional colors for Hannah’s newborn portraits. I love a soft pale blue for baby girls and rarely get request for it. It fit Hannah so well and complimented her beautiful red hair.

When I first started my career in photography I dabbled in every genre I could. I wanted to make sure that I found the place that I belonged in the photography world. During my journey I became friends with a photographer in Utah name Skye Johansen. (If you do not know who she is click HERE. She is amazing!) She takes pictures of newborns, babies, and kids. We went on a trip to Utah and she photographed my oldest who was 18 months at the time. When I got those photos back from her I was so in love I knew that is the direction I needed to go. I wanted every mom to be able to be as happy as I was at that time. I wanted every mom to have beautiful pictures of their newborns, babies, and children in their home. I didn’t want anyone to settle for school pictures. I searched in my town for someone that took pictures like she did and I couldn’t find anyone… and so began my ever evolving journey towards Reno Newborn photography. Of course the industry has changed in the last 7 years and there are so many amazing photographers in Reno. It is so fun to see all the beautiful work the creatives in Reno are making. And that so many mom are able to have works of art made of their sweet families.

Reno Newborn Photographer | Christmas Baby

Reno Newborn Photographer | Christmas Baby

 

A few weeks ago I was so incredibly lucky and I was able to spend a few days with Kristen of Son Kissed Photography. If you don’t know who she is you have to go check her out! Here is a link to her Facebook page. But I am warning you… it will make you want to have a baby! Click HERE to reach her page. I first went to learn all of my newborn posing goodness from Kristen back in the fall of 2012. I have gone back to Oklahoma 2 different times since then. I love being able to be creative, play with fun set ups, and improve my posing. It is the one time that I go somewhere with out my children and it is always so much fun. I feel like I am able to recharge my batteries on so many different levels. I am so lucky that I have a supportive husband that is willing to take a few days off of work and play Mr. Mom so I can go and continue my education.

 

This baby is Carter. We did 4 different prop set ups with him. That is a ton of props for 1 baby. It took us 2 hours to get them all done, but it was so much fun! Here is Carter in his first prop. I love Christmas so the fact that we were able to dress this little guy up and do a whole Christmas set up was just the best! I also love that we were able to get so many different pictures from one prop! It is so fun to try out new things. morgan-mathews-photography-reno-newborn-photographer-001morgan-mathews-photography-reno-newborn-photographer-002morgan-mathews-photography-reno-newborn-photographer-003

I love how his little arms are above his head. He was such a sweet little guy. morgan-mathews-photography-reno-newborn-photographer-004

His little smile makes this one of my favorite pictures of his whole set ups! morgan-mathews-photography-reno-newborn-photographer-005morgan-mathews-photography-reno-newborn-photographer-006

Reno Baby Photographer | Brayden

Reno Baby Photographer | Brayden

I loved being able to take pictures of sweet little Brayden! He was such a joy to spend time with! Brayden was so incredibly friendly, sweet, and loved to give me cuddles. I had a last minute opening on my calendar. I posted the opening on my Facebook page and his mom was able to scoop it right up! If you aren’t following me on Facebook you can click HERE.  I post all of my latest openings, minis, sales, and all that great information on my Facebook page. I also have a VIP page where I do giveaways and a lot of other great things as well. If you would like to join that group you can click HERE.

 

I was so excited to meet little Brayden. He was such a good boy and didn’t mind us changing his outfit about 1 million times. In reality we only did 4 outfits, but to a 9 month old I am sure that feels like 1 million. 😉 Brayden’s mom told me the story of her pregnancy and his birth and I was so amazed. I won’t tell it here because it is pretty personal. But I can tell you that little Brayden is truly a miracle baby! He is one special little boy and I feel that every person that gets to have him in their lives is just as lucky!

I have to take a minute to talk about this adorable mustard and grey outfit! IF you did not know, I have a huge obsession with the color mustard. I am not sure why, but I LOVE it. I will wear it anytime of year.
My mom owns The Bookworm Crochet, and when she saw this fabric she knew she had to make a romper for me out of it. She still has enough fabric to make more of these cute guys. You can go HERE to see her shop. morgan-mathews-photography-baby-photographer-04morgan-mathews-photography-baby-photographer-05morgan-mathews-photography-baby-photographer06
