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.

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 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 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!

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 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!!!!

Morgan Mathews Photography | Reno Newborn Photographer 01Morgan Mathews Photography | Reno Newborn Photographer 02This is probably my most favorite bucket shot I have EVER taken!!! Seriously.. such a dream to photograph. Nathan’s mom dreamed up this set up and I am so happy with how it turned out.

Morgan Mathews Photography | Reno Newborn Photographer 03Sweet and simple are almost always my favorite… and can we talk about the insane amount of hair this sweet little guy has?!?!

Morgan Mathews Photography | Reno Newborn Photographer 04This sweet little bonnet was made for me by the amazing Kristen Mackay of Son Kissed Photography. If you have some time to spend on some seriously amazing newborn photos go check out her blog HERE
