Eugene, Oregon maternity photographer: Alia

Alia is expecting her baby girl in a few short weeks and has already booked her newborn photography session with me for soon after the big day. I am so excited to meet her new little one! In the meantime, it was delightful to meet Alia and work with her doing a maternity photography session.

Alia reached out to me about doing a milk bath session for her maternity shoot. I had never done a milk bath session before, but they are very much in vogue at the moment and it’s easy to see why. They are absolutely gorgeous! I’ve seen them done by other photographers in other areas of the country, so when Alia asked me about the possibility of doing it I was very excited for the opportunity. I am always up for adventure and trying new things—especially when it comes to exploring new methods of photography—so this was right up my alley!

Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Evelyn

Evelyn’s mama is my daughter’s preschool teacher, so I was super excited to photograph this sweet baby girl. It’s always extra special when I get to do a session with people I already have a connection with so it was a real pleasure to have Evelyn and her mom and dad in my photography studio in Eugene, Oregon last month.

Eugene, Oregon maternity photographer: Jennifer

With Mother’s Day coming up I think it’s the perfect time to share photographs from my most recent maternity shoot with you!

I met Jennifer and her husband, Adam, last month for this maternity photography session at Fern Ridge Lake. For those unfamiliar with the area, Fern Ridge is a local reservoir that is a popular spot for sailing, water skiing, and other water sports—who knew it could also make such a great backdrop for photography?

Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Isaac

I am delighted to introduce you to Isaac! 

This sweet little boy was almost five weeks old at the time of this newborn photography session, which was a little unusual. Typically I try to get newborns in to the studio within the first two weeks of life, but things were pretty busy for Isaac’s mama, so it we scheduled the session a little later. I know—it’s unheard of for the mother of a brand new baby to be busy, right? 

Isn’t he such a sweetheart?

Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Jade

Everyone, please join me in saying hello to Jade!

Is it just me, or do we seem to have had several little ones lately who just couldn’t wait the full nine months before getting started in the world? Well, Jade has joined their ranks. This little guy decided eight months was plenty of time for mom and dad to get ready, and arrived on the scene a month before his due date. Despite his early arrival, Jade still managed to be a good-sized, chunky baby with amazing rolls!

Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Carter

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. As a newborn photographer I get to celebrate new life almost every day, and since that’s so much of what Easter is about I think it’s an extra special holiday. Speaking of which, I also have an extra special little boy for all of you to meet. Please join me in welcoming Carter to the blog!

Isn’t he a sweetheart?

Eugene, Oregon baby photographer: Kristina is ONE!

Kristina is one!

Kristina and her family were new to my photography studio in Eugene, Oregon, and it was so wonderful to meet them for the first time in early March of this year. They are such a sweet family!

As a baby and child photographer, it’s always interesting to see the reactions of different kiddos to the idea of a photo shoot. I never quite know what they’re going to think of me. Kristina needed a little time to warm up. She didn’t seem to know what to make of the strange lady who kept sticking a camera in her face! Who can blame her, right? She got used to the attentions of the paparazzi pretty quickly though, and we were able to get a lot of really cute shots, as you can see. I hope you enjoy them!

Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Braelynn

Please welcome Braelynn!

Is it permissible to refer to a baby as an adorable little squish bean? You know what? I’m going to step out on a limb and do it. This little girl is seriously the most adorable little squish bean I have ever met in my life! She was so soft and cuddly and had the cutest little round cheeks that were perfectly designed for kissing. She is absolutely irresistible.
