This Sonora Newborn session was such a gorgeous session. The session was indoors and it turned out so beautifully.

We started off with picking out colors, materials, and set ups. I am obsessed with the fall vibe of these pictures. They are so cute, classic, simple, and cozy. Little Amelia seemed to love it too as I was able to get her to smile multiple times. :)

After little Amelia's portraits we transitioned into capturing images of mom, dad, brother, and baby.

We never truly know the love of a parent, until we become parents ourselves.

One of my favorite parts of taking newborn portraits is being able to take pictures of the mom and dad with their new little one. There is so much love in everyone's eyes, it is indescribable. The way they look at each other, the way they gaze at their new little bundle of joy, all of it is beautiful.

Beckham is 4 years old and he is the cutest! He helped me throughout the entire session. We set up the props together, he checked the back of my camera to make sure the photographs looked ok, and he even tried on headbands for me. He is so adorable and so obsessed with his baby sister.  Little Amelia, you are so loved and so protected. Your brother is going to be the best big brother.

Talk about the most gorgeous sweet family! This family made taking these newborn portraits a dream. Each and every one is sweet, kind, understanding, patient, and so much more. I loved this session. 

This session was so much fun and so beautiful. Thank you so much for allowing me to be your photographer!

Being a newborn photographer is such a blessing and means so much to me. I am so thankful that I am given this opportunity to be able to photograph this special time in a families life.

Wishing you all a beautiful day,

When scheduling a newborn session you have to be a little bit flexible when it comes to the time and date. We all know that babies come when they are ready, not when you are ready, and especially not on your 'due date'.

Now, with outdoor sessions you definitely need to be flexible as you want to make sure that the weather is just right in order to work best for the new little one. We definitely don't want them getting cold during their session. With little Delaney, we had to reschedule a couple of times as the weather didn't want to cooperate; however, I am so thankful that we did! 

The original plan was to have her newborn portraits taken in Knights Ferry, but ultimately the location changed to Indegeny Reserve and I do have to say that this was an awesome decision.

The portraits came out so amazing!

The session started off with pictures of Delaney's brothers and then all the boys while Delaney was getting comfortable with her new surroundings. Then we were able to get these beautiful pictures when she relaxed and fell asleep.

We ended the session with Mom, Dad, and Delaney after a session filled with a warm autumn breeze, laughter, smiles, and so much goodness.

To Jesse and Haley, thank you so so much for allowing me to be your photographer during this incredibly special time in your families lives!

If you or someone you know is expeciting, I encourage you to truly take a moment and consider scheduling a newborn portrait session. The moment that your new little one is a newborn is a fleeting moment and will be gone in a blink of an eye. These images that come from your session will be around for you to cherish forever.

Wishing you all nothing but beautiful days filled with laughter.

For this child I have prayed and the lord has granted the desires of my heart - 1 Samuel 1:27


Little Addie was born on a Monday with nothing but grace and absolute cuteness.

Her newborn session was taken when she turned only 12 days old on a gorgeous warm fall day. She was an absolute doll during here entire newborn session.  Addie was awake for the majority of the session so curious with what was happening around her. She didn't fuss and we even caught a glimpse of a little smile :)

We started out with a little bit of a lifestyle session inside. I am absolutely thrilled with how these images turned out!

and over all these virtues put on love, for it binds them together in perfect unity - Colossians 3:14

After a little bit of indoors we went outside. There was a gorgeous Pistache tree that was turning red out in front and the weather was warm and beautiful. I absolutely adore outdoor photos! The lighting, the weather, incorporating nature... all of it! I find it to be so incredibly gorgeous:


I absolutely adore this little family. They are beautiful both on the inside and the outside. Thank you so much for allowing me to be your photographer during this special time in your life!

After our outdoor adventure we went back inside to get some posed family portraits and then a few images of just little Addie.

Having a newborn portrait session is important, and having it at your house makes it so special. This session was a little bit of documentary and a little bit of portraiture. Being able to show the love that is within a family and capturing this special time is so important. This beautiful family made it so easy as you can tell that they have so much love for each other, God, and life.

Wishing you nothing but happiness and joy!
