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 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

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my blog!

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!



He was cracking my up! He LOVED to tuck his little pinky finger! His darling hat can be found at No2 Willow lane. Click HERE to go to their shop…

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.

Morgan Mathews Photography | Reno Baby Photographer 01

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.

Morgan Mathews Photography | Reno Baby Photographer 02Morgan Mathews Photography | Reno Baby Photographer 03Morgan Mathews Photography | Reno Baby Photographer 04

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.
