Newborn Photography – Baby Hailey

This little angel comes by way of our dear friends Steve and Jennie. Hailey was a few weeks early, but even so she was ready at 6 pounds! We have already done one night feeding for this sweet girl and I am sure in no time at all we will be saying those infamous words, “I remember when you were only thisssss big”. It will be a fun journey watching Hailey grow and we are so happy for Steve and Jennie!!

Newborn Photography – Burbank Studio

This is Boden on his 2 week birthday. It won’t take you half a second to figure out my favorite thing about this little guy. Yep, he is naturally going to be the cool kid on the block with that rocker hair do. His hair just naturally looks that good, no special baby gel, no make up artist on set, just straight up, mow-hawk cool.

We did these photos at our studio here in Burbank. A 2 week old newborn is putty in your hands when its 95 degrees. While I have photographed newborns with lighting, I decided I don’t like the look of flashes on the newborn baby skin. So these are all natural light with reflectors to give that smooth, yummy o’natural light. Dreamy.

Just a few short months ago we photographed Alexia and Eric’s maternity photos at Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills and now Boden is here with his perfect little fingers, perfect little toes, and perfect hair. Love this little family of 3 and can’t wait to watch Boden grow!

Newborn Photography – the newborn curl

There is just something simply lovely about a newborn. Oh yes, baby smell and tiny fingers are good but its the newborn curl that makes my heart skip a beat. In your whole life, you only do the “newborn curl” for the first 2 weeks of life. Most newborns get cell phone shots or point and shoots while they are all wrapped up in blankets. But that special thing they do can only be seen naked and usually sleeping. Up until 2 weeks, they still can maintain the fetal position because joints and fat haven’t developed enough to hinder the tuck. The cute positions and posing is pure magic at this stage.
This baby is particularly special because his momma Leah is a dear friend and to my delight she turned Nigel over to me while I had her relax in the new backyard on a lounge chair with a magazine. She got some much needed rest while listening to the birds chirp and enjoying the California sun. Although I think everyone should have newborn photos within the first 2 weeks, perhaps the selling point is I take photos plus momma gets to rest in resort style! That’s the best 2fer a new mother could ask for! 🙂
These photographs were taken at our studio in Burbank with lots of wonderful natural light! Even though I know how to execute studio lighting, I still love the look of natural light, especially for newborns. A wide open fstop makes their skin so creamy, beautiful and smooth.
