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 | Carly

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 | Nathan

Reno Newborn Photographer | Nathan

This sweet newborn boy, Nathan, was the very last newborn that I photographed in my current (or not so current) studio. I moved out of this house just a few days after I shot this session. Nathan’s session will always be so special to me just for this reason. Another reason why this session is so incredibly special for me is that his sweet mom is an incredible family photographer for families here in Reno and Sparks, Nevada. Although…. I think she travels to a few places as well…. I think. 😉
If you are looking for THE BEST family photographer in the Reno area you need to check her out. She has taken pictures of my family 2 different times and I can’t even tell you how much I cherish the images she was bale to capture. I really should do a blog post on that subject now that I am thinking about it! To see her website click HERE.  I know she is already booking fall sessions when she is back from maternity leave… so get on it!!!

I think photographing a session for a photographer is always the most nerve racking experience for me. I want them to LOVE their photos and for them to be 100% perfect! Luckily for me Nathan was an absolute dream to work with and so was his older brother. His brother was so sweet, patient , and was amazing at following directions. I can’t even tell you what a joy it was to take their pictures. Usually when little boys come in with their baby brothers I prepare myself for lots of not wanting their babies and wildness… but not with this guy! He is SO in love with his brother. It was beyond adorable!!!!

Reno Child Photographer | Madison turns 4

Reno Child Photographer | Madison turns 4

WOW! I can’t believe this sweet little girl is turning 4 already. The first time I took pictures of her family she was just a little baby! I have had the privilege of having her in front on my camera several times… along with her sisters and their parents. Each one of the girls is so sweet, well mannered, and so helpful. I am always so happy when I get an email from their mom letting me know its time to take some pictures.
Madison has a really sweet personality. She was really shy at first. She is always super sky when she first comes into the studio.

This cute little white bench was given to my by a great lady that I go to church with. This wonderful woman also teaches preschool. She is an amazing preschool teacher. She is also Madison’s preschool teacher. When Madison found out that this little white bench use to belong to her favorite teacher she was so excited. She had to sit in it as soon as she could. She was so sweet.

I love this headband. It is made from Avery and Grey. You can find their etsy shop HERE.  I had just gotten this floral crown in the mail right before her session. I was so glad it had just come. It fit Madison perfectly.

Reno Baby Photographer | Rocket 8 Months

Reno Baby Photographer | Rocket 8 Months

This this the third time I have been able to take Rocket’s pictures! I wish it could be more but when they live so far away I’ll take what I can get. Rocket is my little niece and is 6 months younger than my baby Nixon. Nixon and Rocket have a love hate relationship right now. Only because Nixon gets horrible jealous anytime I try to hold her. He is a mama’s boy! And a jealous mama’s boy at that.
I love when they come up to visit. She will usually come right to me even if it has been months seen I have seen her last. I think its because her dad and I look so much alike. Out of all my siblings I think Rocket’s dad looks the most like me. My mom always makes all of theses adorable outfits for her to wear. Its really fun to see all the fun things that she comes up with. I think the yellow set up is my favorite…. Although I was really excited to use my new flower backdrop. I tried to get Nixon to let me take his pictures in front of it, but he wanted nothing to do with it. 😉

I’m not sure I could pick one thing that I love about being a Reno Baby Photographer. There are so many things that make me so happy when I shoot these sessions. I love the expressions that they have and their little personalities. I love coming up with these set up… pairing the backdrops with the outfits to make piece of art for the family that represents them and this time of their baby’s life… so many fun fun things.

 

All outfits are from The Bookworm Crochet. Her shop can be found HERE.
