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 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

Reno Newborn Photographer |Carly

Reno Newborn Photographer | Baby Carly

How fun is it that I was able to photograph two precious little girls named Carly so closely? I think its such a sweet name and fits both of the girls that I have recently photographed perfectly!

This little baby Carly belongs to one of my sister in laws. She is the youngest of ten kids and Carly is the 40th grand baby for her and my husband’s family. My husband is number eight in the family.

Carly was a sweet little girl. When she was born she weighed in at nine pounds and was 22 inches long. It was so much fun photographing a baby with so many cute squishy rolls. Being a  Reno newborn photographer is so much fun. I have people ask me if I get bored doing the same poses over and over again and I have to say no way! Being a newborn photographer has a lot to do with reading the baby and knowing what they like and dislike. Even at the young age of just 8 days old… sweet Carly had her preferences! Carly loved to be really squished up. She loved being folded in half and feeling really tight and secure. I think it made her feel very safe and happy.

I was so happy that mom picked out this darling brown hat. It is one of my favorites! The hat is from Britches and Bonnets her shop can be found HERE.  Sometimes being a Reno newborn photographer  it is so hard to find cute props. A lot of the time I end up making my own. But I have been so lucky to find some amazing vendors!

I really love this pose with the sweet newborn’s legs all crossed and their bums in the air. My baby Nixon slept like this for a long time so I have a high sense of nostalgia when I do this pose. The funny thing about Nixon is that he still sleeps like this a lot of the time. Her darling little romper can be found at etsy shop The Bookworm Crochet… the link to her shop can be found HERE

I had to get a few pictures of Carly and her older sister Jane. Carly looks so different than Jane did as a newborn. It is so fun to see all the different traits that can come from the same family. I think these sweet girls will grow up to be very good friends.
Jane’s Dress is from Matilda Jane Clothing. Their website can be found HERE. If you are looking for a trunk keeper to buy Matilda Jane from I have an incredible one for you! Leave me a comment and I will get you her email!
Carly’s wrap is also from The Bookworm Crochet.

I hope that everyone has the best Labor Day weekend. My little Nixon is so incredible sick. I am sure I will spend the whole weekend watching Bubble Guppies and Paw Patrol.

If you are expecting a newborn or know someone who is I would love to work with you! Please leave me a comment or fill out my contact form for more information!

Reno Baby Photographer | Carly

I LOVE taking pictures of these sweet babies!I might be biased but I think that Reno has the prettiest babies ever. I mean seriously! Look at this gorgeous little baby girl! Carly was so sweet and was such a trooper for her session! Carly let us dress her in SO many outfits. I try to do around 3 outfits for the sitter sessions… but this little cutie let us get away with 4! All of these outfits are from the etsy shop The Bookworm Crochet Click HERE to see her shop.

I LOVE how her mom braided back a small section of her hair. I love when moms take the popular styles for adults and simplify them for their babies. It always looks so cute! I also love this one shoulder white outfit… the lace is so pretty and I love they way her chubby little legs look in it. I just love her.

Doesn’t she have the prettiest eyes?

Morgan Mathews Photography | Reno Baby Photographer 05Morgan Mathews Photography | Reno Baby Photographer 06okay… I think I lied… this outfit may be the one that I liked the most! It was so perfect on her!

Here is a little photo tip for the day:

What you dress your child in for his or her session makes a HUGE difference in how the pictures will turn out. I always recommend putting your baby in clothes that are classic. A lot of the times the clothing that photographs the best is a little over the top compared to what they would wear every day. I have been collection clothing for sessions for awhile now just for my clients to use! I know that a lot of people like to be able to reuse the clothing that they purchase for sessions and lets be honest… some of the clothes that I have in my studio closet is not something you would purchase for everyday wear. When booking your session let me know if you are looking for something specifically for your baby to wear.

Reno Newborn Photographer | Reagan

Reno Newborn Photographer | Reagan

Reagan was the sweetest little newborn girl ever! She was cuddly and squishy and was amazing during her session. Usually during newborn sessions I request that parents bring a pacifier even if their babies won’t take them for mom and dad. Some times these sweet new babies need a a little something to distract them and get them back into that deep sleep and pacifiers almost always do the trick! And because I am not mom they are more than happy to take one from me. Sweet little Reagan never needed  a pacifier during any part of her session. I was shocked! She was great at soothing herself and a little cuddling did the trick for her. I love being able to see all the different personalities that these newborns have when they come to have their pictures taken. Each newborn is so unique. The great part is usually when they come back to see me for their sitter session or their cake smash their little personalities are about the same just in a grander scale. I love it!

I really loved the colors that mom picked for Reagan’s pictures. Its not very often that I get to use baby blue for a little girl. I LOVE baby blue for newborn girls. It is so dainty and sweet and can be paired with pink and any other traditional girlie color. Its so much fun.
