Baby Never Looked So Good!

I’m back! Can you believe it? I didn’t realize my blogging would be the thing to suffer so when I had my third child. Now that my little man is getting bigger and will let me put him down, I am getting back into the swing of things. I was lucky enough to get to photograph this little one over the snowy weekend. His face was just so cute it wasn’t hard to pick out images for his gallery, he was so sweet in all of them. This session is more typical of a hospital session.
A little bit of heaven
Drifted down from above –
A handful of happiness,
A heart full of love.
The mystery of life,
So sacred and sweet
The giver of joy
So deep and complete.
Precious and priceless,
So lovable, too
The world’s sweetest miracle,
Baby boy, is you.

I love photographing newborns, especially the tiny little ones that just can’t help but sleep. This little guy was an angel for his photos. Dad likes tools so we put him in his lumberjack suit and took a couple with his tools all around him. Really sweet boy and adorable doting parents. Thank you for letting come into your home to capture some of these first memories of Connor.


Tips from a professional newborn photographer July 13, 2011

Filed under: Home Visits,Newborn,On-location,Prep,Tips — Bouncin' Baby Photography @ 11:08 am

1 – Get a professional photographer if you can afford one. If seeking a professional photographer, find one that specializes in newborns. Some photographers will go to the home as well (I do home visits!) so inquire about that. When going to the photographer’s studio, make sure they are prepared to work with newborns and have items such as blankets, wipes, feathers and other necessities.

2 – Have your baby photographed early. I suggest that clients schedule their babies within 1-2 weeks – or within the first 10 days of life. Remember to include siblings as well.

3 – Keep babies warm during the session, especially if your little one is naked. Crank up the heat!

4 – Noise machines work great for fussy babies. If you do not have one, download noise machine sounds to your phone or put a CD in your computer.

5 – Babies love to be cozy – getting warm blankets or materials and laying them in a basket keeps them happy and sleepy.

6 – If possible, turn off the flash and work in natural light. Put the baby in a basket by a window. (the light is coming from the right in the photo above)

7 – Try shooting in black and white – it is classic and timeless.

8 – Get the baby parts! Hands, toes, lips will never be this small again! Get really close!

9 – Get closeups with Dad and Mom (or partners) – it’s a very precious time.

10 – Have patience. When unclothed, babies will poop and pee and make all sorts of messes! A little patience and a paper towel goes a long way!

Hope that helps a little.


How ya doin Red? – Utah Newborn Photography May 26, 2011

Two sets of grandparents, two dogs, cousins, and both parents were all waiting for me when it was time to do little Red’s photos. I did photos with all the grandparents, both as sets and individual photos just with Red. I am not showing any of those images out of respect for the wishes of one very protective grandfather.

Isn’t his red hair just adorable?!

A handsome boy indeed. Thank you to his parents for letting me photograph him and his wonderful family.

Little Rock Star – Sandy Modern Newborn Photography March 1, 2011

This was such a GREAT session! The little rock stars parents are adopting him from here in Utah so our session was in their hotel room. The love and warmth that filled the air between this baby and his parents was electric. He is loved to say the least.

Tristan did great and even let me curl him up for a few sleepy photos in his sock monkey hat.

Dad easily got Tristan to smile for me.

It goes without saying but you two are already amazing parents! Thank you so much for letting me capture some of these wonderful moments in all your lives. Tristan is lucky to have you!

Elizabeth happens to be the beloved daughter of one of my dearest friends. Elizabeth’s mother and I are connected in a way few people understand and now that she is a mother, our bond is stronger than ever. Elizabeth is an adorable little girl who is surly going to be the coolest kid in her class, at least once her classmates get wind of her parents profession. Her mother and father are both in the army. Big deal you say…well her mother happens to be brilliant and flies black hawk helicopters and her father is an amazing man in the special forces. Both have already give 10-15 years worth of service and spent time in the war. That’s the biggest deal I can think of 🙂 (and there is always the fact that they made a really cute kid!)

Elizabeth started her session off wide awake and very aware of me and the camera.

Big tough special forces daddy is also a fan of Star Wars. I forgot to mention that Elizabeth full name is Elizabeth Pixie Chewbacca. Not really but her parents haven’t let anyone ever really believe other wise.

Perfect little toes and feet!

At the end of the session she wake up happy and gave me the same look of “did you get my photo?”

Too cute little miss! Wish you guys lived closer. To Elizabeth parents: Thank you for letting me nuzzle and inhale your daughters intoxicating baby scent. She really is just so beautiful.
