Reno Baby Photographer | Luke

Reno Baby Photographer | Luke

 

Luke was the sweetest little guy. He came to see me when he was 9 months old. He took his time sitting up! I was anxious to be able to see him and do his photos. Most  a babies sit up between 6-7 months. But I would say that Luke was worth the wait! Luke had the sweetest little smile and I loved all of his dark hair and his dark eyes. His eyes reminded me of My Carter’s. They are so brown they are almost black. I loved the little blue chambray outfit that his mom brought him. So sweet and so cute.

Luke’s family reminded me of my own. He is the youngest of 4 boys. I have 3 boys. so it was fun to sit and talk to his mom and compare stories of what it is like to have all boys. I always love meeting other boy moms. Its a lot of fun.

Luke started to crawl right around the time he started to sit up. We had to put him in a bucket to keep him from running away from us. He seemed to like it. 😉

Here he is trying to crawl right off of my stage. I’m just glad he was crawling towards me and not away from me.

I love being able to be a Reno Baby Photographer. I love watching all of these sweet babies grow and hit all of these fun milestones. Sometimes I think we get stuck on doing their newborn photos and then again for the 1 year and their cake smash. I think the most fun sessions happen when they can sit up. They have the cutest smiles and their little personalities are starting to show. I can’t tell you how much I love photographing all of these Reno Babies! I think we have the cutest babies around. 🙂

Reno Child Photographer | Aruke Turns 2

Reno Child Photographer | Aruke Turns 2

I have been so lucky! I have been able to take pictures of this sweet little girl for the past few years. She first came and saw me when she was less than 2 weeks old, then again when she turned one, and now she is 2! She is so incredible! She is well behaved and LOVED to have her pictures taken. We kept doing set up after set up, changing her outfits and her headbands and she was all for it! It was such a treat for me. These pictures below were her mom’s top favorites and so I decided to share these…  I couldn’t pick my favorites!

Her pink dress her mom brought with her… Its so fancy. I want one for myself!
Her cream dress is from my studio. I got it at Cozette Couture. Her shop is HERE
Her headband is also from Cozette Couture. I think it is called French Vanilla. I love it! IT goes with everything and is just the right size.
Her floral headpiece is from The Bookworm Crochet. Her shop is HERE.

If you would like to book a session Click HERE. I would love to be able to capture your little ones!

Reno Baby Photographer | What to Wear Baby Boy Edition

Reno Baby Photographer | What to Wear Baby Boy Edition

 

One of the most common questions I get from my clients is “What should I have them WEAR????”

One of the things that I have learned being a Reno Baby Photographer is that I am a huge believer that the clothes that your babies and children wear can make a HUGE difference in what your photos look like. I have A TON of clothes in my studio. More clothing for girls than boys, but I still have a lot of items that are available. Putting on those clothes that are a little fancier or a little over the top is what makes the difference in your pictures. In my studio I have some really over the top clothes that most people wouldn’t purchase because your kiddos won’t wear them again…

 

I wanted to give you some options that you could purchase that your kids and babies would wear again. This post will be all about what you can purchase for your boys… you know since I have three boys. 😉

 

My number one favorite place to get boys clothes is from ZARA. My friend Skye told me that their clothes were amazing and since her little boy always looks adorable I decided to give their clothes a go. Oh.My.Word guys I can not tell you how much I love them. I feel like they are affordable, comfortable, they look adorable, and they wash so well. I have washed one of Nixon’s shirts tons of times and it looks the same. Love them! Click HERE to see their website.  Nixon’s little outfit below is from Zara. While I was in Vegas visiting family I went to the Zara that they have downtown and I wanted to buy the entire store.

Of course another place that I love is The Gap. I love their button downs and jeans and their slacks. I think that a little boy or baby boys are so classic and adorable in button downs. I also love them in a polo.

 

If you are wanting some cute bow ties or ties or a little vest I would go with either The Bookworm Crochet (click HERE) or Taylor Joelle (click HERE ). Taylor Joelle has some really cute clothes in general.

 

I also think a baby boy in jeans with no shirt is so stinking cute.

A few other places I like:

Crew cuts (click HERE)

Boden (click HERE)

Its late and I feel like I am forgetting a few other places that I like to get clothes… so I am sure I will be updating this one!

If you have any suggestions on places that would be great for clothes for pictures let me know! I always love a new place to look and shop.

Reno Baby Photographer | Sophia

Reno Baby Photographer | Sophia

 

Sweet Sophia! Have you ever seen a cuter baby before?!?! Goodness gracious, I wanted to keep this sweet girl. Sophia is my sister in law’s little sister. That added a really fun factor to doing her photos. I took pictures of Sophia almost a year ago and I am just getting around to blogging them. Its amazing what happens when you have your own baby and some of the things that start to fall off so that you can care for that sweet new baby and not regret spending time away from them. At least that is what happened with me. BUT I am really loving going back through all of the sessions that I didn’t have time to blog and blogging them. Its almost like a little photo album of my past work. And I have so many great memories from each session that I have done.

 

As always all of these sweet little outfits are from The Bookworm Crochet. To see her shop click HERE.  I made her cute little necklaces and headbands.

I love this little winkie face. It cracks me up every time I look at it. So sweet.

She really loved sitting in my cream bucket. I probably could have put her in a million different outfits and she would have let me as long as I let her sit in that bucket!

Reno Baby Photographer | Krew

Reno Baby Photographer | Krew

This is sweet little Krew. I absolutely LOVED taking his pictures. He was the sweetest little man I have ever taken pictures of. He let me sit and hold him and cuddle him and dress in in a million different outfits. He was so laid back and amazing. He is even more special because I took pictures of his mom when she was a senior in high school. I was hugely pregnant with Carter at the time (who is almost 5 now). It makes me feel a little old, but really happy at the same time. It is so fun to see Brooke (Krew’s mom) transform from this beautiful young woman into an amazing, caring, loving mom. Seriously… she is such a sweet mom and little Krew loves her more than anything. It was so neat to see the special relationship they have and the way that Krew looks at his mom could just melt your heart. So stinking sweet. And his name… honestly… how could you not love his name. IT fits him perfectly.

 

One of the reasons I took pictures of Krew was so that I could take pictures for my mom’s etsy shop, The bookworm crochet. To see her shop click HERE. I love having my mom here in Reno with me. It is so fun to come up with shoots with her. It has been one of the best things creatively for me. Not to mention whenever I need something custom made for one of my sessions that I can’t knit my sweet mom will sew it up for me.

 

If I had to pick a favorite outfit…. I’m not sure I could! I love this first one because you can put the darling little hood on them of have it off. I love a little boy with a hood on. But I also love the little vest! Krew wore all the outfits so well. I love all of his little chubby rolls. 😉
