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.

This little newborn baby girl is just beyond precious. I really enjoyed the time I was able to spend with her. She was so sweet and so cuddly. I could have held her all day long… and I hope her sweet mama does just that!
This fun family has 2 boys… so I was thrilled to find out that they were expecting a sweet little baby girl to love on. I loved all of her dark hair, her squishy cheeks, and her overall demeanor. She is going to be one sweet and lovable little girl. And I am sure she will get no shortage of love from her family.

When I do my newborn sessions I give my families the option to either sit and hang out with me or they can go and watch tv or take a nap in the little loft that I have attached to my studio. Her mama was hanging out with me and she would not go to sleep. Her mom was so perplexed because she is such a great sleeper. So we tried to have her mom go and sit in the other room to see what would happen. She feel right to sleep. And some babies are just like that! They love their mamas so much they they can’t handle to have them in the room while they are having their pictures taken. They just want them. It is really sweet when that happens.

Her mom brought this sweet and darling dress for her photos. This dress was worn by mom when she was a newborn and wore it on the way home from the hospital. I love little items like this. It is so special… and from her smile I think she liked it too!

Reno Newborn Photographer | Cade

Reno Newborn Photographer | Cade

Cade was one of the sweetest little newborns that I have seen! I think I say that about every single newborn that I photograph. I think one of my favorite parts of being a newborn photographer is being able to see the little personalities that each newborn has. I have seen the calmest babies, the babies that want to be awake and not miss a thing, babies that never opened their eyes the whole session, babies that wanted to be swaddled, cuddled and everything in-between.

Cade was a sweet little boy that loved being swaddled and loved being around his family. He did great for his family pictures and a soon as I took him and tried to did his individual pictures he wanted nothing to do with it. I had to have his parents sit in the waiting area and as soon as he couldn’t hear or smell his family he was out. He let me do a ton of set ups. He was so fun and so sweet. I love his sweet red hair. It reminded me of my baby Nixon’s hair when he was a newborn.

Reno Nevada Newborn Photographer | Baby A

This sweet little peanut was a dream to work with! Her favorite things were to be wrapped up and to be folded in half like a little taco. 🙂 I love all of her sweet a dainty features. She is just precious. I Lover her sweet family. A year before I had taken her newborn pictures… I took pictures of her older twin sisters as newborns. They are almost exactly 1 year apart. I love that the three of them will be able to grow up so close in age. How fun would it be to have 2 sisters that are your automatic best friends in life. What more could you need? Their mom is amazing with them and I think she is a saint.

 

It was s fun to get her all dressed up in girly accessories. I knitted a few items just for her session. I love being able to create pieces that are just for that specific client. Before each session I send out a questionnaire to my moms. There are questions such as… what colors would you like in your session… how much did your baby weigh. I then take the answers to the questions and create a session that is custom to them, their likes, their color choices, and of course I don’t do anything they don’t like. Knitting and sewing items for each session really helps me to feel like each session is individual and is tailored made for each of my clients. It is one of the reasons why I only take a few sessions a month. I have to have the time to create pieces.

People have asked me what I do with the hats after I use them for a session… I keep them in my studio. I reuse them if they fit another session… but I ALWAYS create at least one new piece for each session. I just made the cutest little fox hat for a session that I have in June. It is going to be adorable. 🙂

Thank you so much again to everyone that voted. 2015 was one of the craziest years for me on a person level, and I am so incredible grateful to all of you that trusted me to still take photos of your little ones. I have been working hard in my studio… rearranging, make new backdrops (seriously I die. They are so cute) and knitting new outfits for all your littles. I am so exited for the new year and all the fun things that will be happening.
