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.

 

Sweet 16 – Farmington Childrens Photography October 26, 2011

Filed under: children,Farmington,On-location,They grow up so fast — Bouncin' Baby Photography @ 7:25 pm

Love love love her smile. At sweet 16 months, this little miss is too cute! I am lucky enough to have her as a model again now that her family has moved back to Utah, YAY!! Little misses mama happens to be a dear friend of mine. She is specially adorable to me because I have been able to photographer her since she could hear her mama’s heart from the inside 🙂 The last photo of her in her halloween costume is just for her mama who said she thinks it’s cute. I think it’s the best ladybug face ever!

 

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.

 

In-Hospital Newborn Photography July 11, 2011

Cortney Jones brings her experience as an on-location newborn portrait and maternity photographer right to your hospital room to create amazing portraits of the newest addition to your family. Often using the window to take advantage of that great natural light, the portrait session takes place right in front of you. While your baby is the star of this portrait session, any special blankets, hats, or accessories are a welcome addition during the session. Portraits with mom, dad, or other family members can also be accommodated.

If your hospital is contracted with Bouncin’ Baby Photography there is no need to arrange your photo-shoot ahead of time.  Your professional mini photo-shoot will take place in the comfort of your hospital room. Online viewing and ordering is available for 2 weeks to anyone with whom you choose to share your password.

If your hospital is not contracted with Bouncin’ Baby simply call 801.333.3384.  You can book and schedule a session then I will come to your hospital or home within a day or two of your baby’s birth.

PICTURES FROM FIRST DAY PHOTO MAKE A WONDERFUL, LASTING GIFT!

Most baby gifts are only used for a few weeks before baby grows out of them.  So, if you’re a grandparent to be, or a friend, consider giving a unique and thoughtful gift that will be enjoyed for generations.

Hospital newborn sessions are truly special.  The birth of a baby and the precious days that follow are full of breathtaking moments.  As parents, we know how precious those first days are and how quickly they pass, which is why we strive to document the tiny newborn features as they first appear.  Close-ups of baby, tiny hands and toes, and bonding moments with family are priceless memories that we capture during your session.  The newborn stage passes in breathtaking moments and upscale, professional photography will keep those memories flourishing for years to come.

SCHEDULING
Newborn photos are never scheduled too early. Call Bouncin’ Baby Photography if and when you know your baby’s due date to schedule an in-hospital appointment.  If you have a scheduled delivery date or for priority scheduling, please send me an e-mail at cortney@bouncinbabyphotography.com or give me a call at 801.388.3384 to let me know your due date and place of delivery. Add me to your list of people to call or text after the baby is born and we’ll set up the actual session.

If you would prefer to do your session in the comfort of your own home, newborn sessions should be conducted within 2 weeks of baby’s arrival.

PRICING
A $50 deposit fee applies to any newborn or hospital session, for immediate family only.  Additional session fees will apply to sessions outside the 30-mile radius of Farmington Utah.

TIPS for a great photo shoot
In order to best prepare for your newborn photo session, please keep the following suggestions in mind:

–  Bring your favorite baby blanket or afghan from home for use in the photo shoot. Textured blankets look great!  Fuzzy, fluffy and soft photograph very well, and the blanket should be a solid color or have a very simple pattern. Bring a blanket for use as a background or to swaddle your baby.

–  I love to include parent’s hands in our photos.  Wear clear or neutral polish on the day of your shoot.  I want your baby to be the focus of the photos.

–  Bring a solid black, brown or grey shirt or cami  for you to wear in photos.  We may photograph your baby in your arms.  These colors look great in both color and black and white prints.

–  Your baby’s portrait session will also be posted on our password-protected online gallery for easy sharing with family and friends for 2 weeks.

–  I usually photograph baby in just a diaper. Newborns tend to swim in newborn size outfits so there is not need to bring a outfit for your session.  Hats and headbands make an adorable addition to any photo.

–  Boppy® pillows or other support pillows can be a good positioning aid for baby.
