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.

This is one of the smallest baskets I have and I have not been able to get a baby in it because it is so small and short. Andrew fit in the basket perfectly. Backdrop and flooring is from intuition backdrops. You can find her website HERE

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.


I love this dainty and delicate pink lace romper. I got it from The Bookworm Crochet. You can find her etsy shop HERE. morgan-mathews-photography-reno-newborn-photography-003morgan-mathews-photography-reno-newborn-photography-004morgan-mathews-photography-reno-newborn-photography-005morgan-mathews-photography-reno-newborn-photography-006

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

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my blog!

Reno Newborn Photographer | Levi

Reno Newborn Photographer | Levi

This little guy has been waiting for a very long time to join his family! Levi’s mom and dad had some difficulties when it came to having a baby, so you can imagine how incredibly happy they are to have Levi in their arms.
I met Levi’s mom ten years ago! We worked at the same animal hospital. I loved sitting and chatting with her when we had a little bit of down time (which was not very often). Shortly after she started working at the animal hospital, I got engaged and got a new job so that I could have health insurance. Hillary also does hair, and she got my hair all trimmed and colored for my wedding. We actually got married down in St. George, Utah or I would have had her do my actual wedding hair as well.
It is so fun being able to pay if forward a little bit. She made one of my biggest days special and I felt like I was able to return the favor by taking pictures of her baby. I always joke that Reno is like a recycling bin. It seems like everyone knows each other or of each other and everyone comes in and out of your life.

Onto Sweet Levi…

I think one of the best things about being a newborn photographer is the snuggles! I love being able to love on these precious babies that come into my studio. Its especially special when it is someone that I know. I always want to kiss all the newborn baby’s cheeks, but decided a long time ago that would be super weird of me and I should probably try and contain myself. 😉 Levi was SUCH a good baby! He was chubby, sweet, and had perfect skin! He went pose to pose with no problems.

For Levi’s session his parents decided to do a Newborn Mini Session. These sessions are perfect for people that want to capture the newness of their sweet baby, but want a more economical way to do it. Newborn Mini Sessions are 1 hour long. In the session you get one backdrop blanket, 3 different poses (with different props and hats), a wrapped photo, and if we have time a prop. You also receive 10 images on a CD with the ability to purchase more. For all of that you pay $400. Now onto the pictures!



He was cracking my up! He LOVED to tuck his little pinky finger! His darling hat can be found at No2 Willow lane. Click HERE to go to their shop…
