Sonora Newborn Portraits | Amelia

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.

Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero. Marc Brown

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,

I cannot believe that it has been a whole year since I took little Josephine's newborn portraits. She is such a cutie, with the biggest eyes, the cutest laugh, and she is always trying to make you smile. Her personality is contagious and I am so honored to be able to document her first year. I thought her 6 month portraits were to die for, but her one year portraits has topped it! Red Hills California was just starting to show signs of Spring and this made for the most perfect location. The yellow flowers made for a blanket of gold and the creek running in the background made for an optimal evening of pictures.

We started off with fun portraits to document her turning one. At first we played in the flowers and then started walking. The flowers tickled little Josephine's toes as we adventured down to the creek.

After the sun began to set, it was cake smash time. Josephine wasn't quite sure what to do with the cake, but after a little bit of time she began to dig in, mainly enjoying the delicious frosting.


The entire time she wanted to show off  her delicious cake and she continuously tried to make everyone laugh with her little giggles and fun noises.

This session was absolutely amazing. It was the perfect weather, at the perfect location, and with the perfect one year old.

I hope you all enjoyed this blog and browsing through these images. If you are in search for a photographer I would absolutely love to talk with you. Please feel free to email be or you can even use this contact form.
