Eugene, Oregon baby photographer: 3-month session with Owen

I was so glad to finally get this family in for baby pictures! They had originally scheduled this as a newborn photography session, but I wasn’t able to get them into the studio right after Owen was born because I closed my Eugene, Oregon photography studio for a while due to COVID. Closing was definitely the right thing to do—I really wanted to ensure that I could keep little ones safe and comply with all the recommended health guidelines—but it was one of those tough decisions! I missed seeing these little guys so much, and I knew that for some of them, we would miss that window of opportunity for newborn pictures. Still, the safety of these sweet babies is my top priority—even if it means I have to delay seeing them. So glad to be open again!

Even though we couldn’t get Owen in right away, we got him on the schedule as soon as we could and adjusted his session to a baby and child photography session instead of a newborn shoot. As you can see, it still went great! Mom (Kim), Dad (Eric), and big brother (Benjamin, five years old) were all able to join us too, so I got to spend some time with the whole family.

Photographing babies at this age can be tricky, but I love the challenge! Owen was so alert during our whole time together and gave me such great expressions. Babies at this age are often experimenting with all those muscles, so they make the cutest faces and are so fun and wiggly!

Even though he was three months old, we still did our best to get a few “newborn-like” photos. I swaddled him briefly so we could get that brand new baby pose, which he tolerated really well, although I know he liked it better when he was just in his diaper and could flail his little arms to his heart’s content. Oh, and don’t let that picture fool you: Owen didn’t sleep a wink—I just happened to catch him mid-blink!

This little guy loved tummy time and had a lot of fun making faces at me and trying to figure out what I was doing. Such an adorable little man. The expression “better late than never” doesn’t hold true for everything, but it was certainly the case with these baby pictures. Such a fun baby and child photography session! I loved every minute and am so glad we were able to make it work despite the challenges of COVID. A belated congratulations to Kim and Eric on a beautiful baby boy!

Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Wyatt!

You know how I was saying a few weeks ago that I couldn’t wait for summer? Well, it took its time coming, but it’s here now with a vengeance! These hot days are just crazy. I’m not complaining though. Summer doesn’t tend to last too long here in Eugene, so I’ll take all the sunshine I can get before the rain sets in again.

Little Wyatt came to the studio in the middle of June, about a month before summer really got its boots on. He was so adorable and I can’t wait to share a few of his photos with you. You’re going to love them!

The whole family was able to join us for this newborn photography session: Parents Brittany and Andy, and big sister Kylie all wanted to be in on the fun. It’s great when the whole family can be there for baby pictures. It’s the perfect time to get an updated family shot showcasing the newly expanded clan, and sibling with newborn pictures are the best!

Speaking of which, yes—we definitely got some great pictures of Kylie and her new baby brother. She did an awesome job cuddling with him and I can’t get over her blonde curls and big eyes. They sure make a cute pair.

Wyatt was an absolute dream as well. Such a handsome little guy and a total pro at sleeping! He was nice and curly so we managed to get all the best newborn poses with barely an effort.

I also love the colors mom and dad picked out. Yes, navy and gray is a classic for baby boys and you can’t go wrong with it—but as a newborn photographer, I’ll admit, I really enjoy it when I get some variety to work with. Andy and Brittany went with cream and white for their neutrals, and olive green for the main accent color. It looks so good! Wyatt has that warm golden skin tone that really makes olive look amazing. It’s a color I hardly ever get to use—especially in newborn photography—but I think I may have stumbled on a new favorite.

Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Hazlee!

Would you just look at this cutie? What a doll! Hannah and Jeremiah brought their new baby girl Hazlee to see me near the beginning of June for a newborn photography session. She was absolutely adorable and of course I fell in love with her right off the bat. I’m sure you will too once you’ve seen these baby pictures! Enjoy!

Eugene, Oregon baby photographer: 3-month session with Beau

Katie and Greg brought adorable Beau to my photography studio in early June for his three-month baby photography session. We had actually scheduled this as a newborn session originally, but Beau arrived early and had to spend some time in the NICU before he was strong enough to come home. By the time he was released from the NICU I wasn’t able to photograph him because I had closed my studio temporarily to comply with COVID shutdowns and keep my clients safe. I was so sad that I wasn’t able to photograph him as a newborn, but delighted that his parents still wanted to do the session—just a bit later than we’d planned.

Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Kai!

This was the second newborn photography session I did after reopening my Eugene, Oregon photography studio in May. Kai was the cutest little thing! His parents, Pauline and Christopher, were super excited that I was able to get Kai in—and right at the two-week mark! Talk about things falling into place.

Hope everyone is enjoying the summer weather as much as I am! It’s been great to finally have some sunshine and warmth here in Eugene. Seems like summer was a long time coming this year, but I’m glad it’s here now. Time for fresh berries, lake trips, and of course, more amazing newborn photos!

Eugene, Oregon baby and child photographer: Spring Minis 2020

My spring minis were the last photo sessions I did before I closed my studio temporarily due to COVID-19. It feels like such a long time ago now with everything that’s happened since then. I’m so grateful to be able to have my studio open to clients again.

Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Jamison!

Bryn and Joshua brought their sweet rainbow baby to my studio in late February for a newborn photography session. They had booked a photo shoot with me in the past and I was heartbroken for them when we had to cancel due to the loss of their baby. As a loss mom myself, I know how hard that is and it hurt my heart that they were going through something so difficult. Knowing that piece of their story, I was thrilled when they contacted me again to let me know they were expecting. It was so special being able to welcome Jamison to my studio. He’s a beautiful little boy!
