It was a pleasure to have Clara and her mom, dad, and big brother in my photography studio in Eugene, Oregon last month for a newborn photography session to welcome her to the world!

Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Isla!

Please join me in welcoming Isla to the blog!

I met Alia (Isla’s mom) and her sweet girls a couple of Christmas seasons ago when they came to me for a Christmas mini session. They are part of a wonderful blended family and I was so happy to see them again—this time with a brand-new addition to the family! It was also a pleasure to meet her husband’s two older daughters who were visiting from California. It was such a fun experience just to be in the same room with this family and feel all the love they had for Isla! She is a very lucky girl to have so many people to love her and take care of her as she grows up.

This girl was a great little sleeper. She was as happy as a clam through her entire newborn photography session, as you can see from the contented smile on her face as she curls up on a lacy pillow for some sweet dreams. Isn’t that the cutest little face you ever saw?

Isla was as cooperative a subject as any newborn photographer could wish for, and we were able to get lots of beautiful pictures with lots of different settings and outfits. Even when she woke up, which she did while mom and dad were holding her for some small group shots, she just looked at me curiously for a while and then went right back to sleep again. Don’t she and her parents look wonderful together?

Isla is such a pretty girl, with lots of dark hair just like her mom, and absolutely beautiful skin. It has a lovely rosy tone to it that went perfectly with the dusky pink that we used for the background on many of her photos. You’d think that color was made especially for her!

Speaking of color, I loved the colors Alia chose for Isla’s newborn photography session. Aside from going incredibly well with Isla’s skin tone, the dusky pink and cream are so soothing and feminine, and I love the splash of purple that makes a surprise appearance in some of these baby pictures—most noticeably in the picture below, where Isla nestles in the middle of a wreath of lavender-colored flowers. Such a pretty, almost fairy-like setting for a beautiful baby girl. This photo also has lots of texture going for it, which lends depth and interest without distracting from the star of the show.

It was a real delight to welcome Isla and her parents and sisters to my photography studio in Eugene, Oregon for this newborn photography session. There was a lot of excitement over her arrival and I thoroughly enjoyed sharing in it and recording it for their family to look back on and remember in the days ahead. The addition of a new member to this wonderful family is so fun and exciting. I’m super happy for them!

I hope you’ve enjoyed the pictures of this beautiful girl. She is a real treasure!

Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Bruxton!

I am so excited to introduce you to Bruxton! Some of you might remember that I recently did a maternity photography shoot at Fern Ridge Lake for Bruxton’s parents, Jen and Adam. If you missed it, you can take a look here

Bruxton decided he didn’t want to wait too long for his own newborn photography session and a chance to be in the limelight, so he arrived about a month earlier than expected—not that anyone’s complaining! We are all just super happy that he’s here and we finally get to meet him. I’m pleased to report that he is a healthy, happy, handsome baby boy—and very much loved by his parents. It’s a feeling that I think everyone who meets him will share.

Eugene, Oregon family photographer: Corbin, Carianne, Oliver, and Ryder

I had a wonderful time photographing this fantastic family, and I hope you’ll join me in welcoming them back to the blog!

Carianne and Corbin are a wonderful couple who have been coming to me since their oldest son, Oliver, was born and I did his newborn photography session. I also did their maternity photography shoot for them when they were pregnant with their younger son, Ryder, and then did Ryder’s newborn photos after he arrived, and it has been a pleasure every time.

Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Robert

Please join me in welcoming Robert to the blog!

I welcomed Robert to my photography studio in Eugene, Oregon near the end of April for his newborn photography session, and had a wonderful time with both him and his family. They are familiar faces in my studio since I was lucky enough to photograph Robert’s older sister, Wilma, many times during her first year of life. It was great to see her again. She is becoming such a big girl—and such a cutie! She’s got a great smile. I know she’ll be a great big sister to Robert, and I’m sure they’ll have lots of fun times together! 

Eugene, Oregon baby photographer: Michael is ONE!

Happy birthday, Michael!

I can’t believe that an entire year has passed since I had this little guy in my photography studio in Eugene, Oregon for his newborn photography session. The time has flown by and once again I am amazed at how much babies grow and change in one short year. It was so much fun to have Michael in the studio again and to celebrate his first year of life with a birthday cake smash!

Eugene and Springfield, Oregon Family and Portrait Photographer: Spring Mini Sessions

I hope everyone is having a wonderful memorial day. With the changing seasons and beautiful flowers coming on, last month was time for my spring minis!

I was joined by fifteen beautiful families for these mini photography sessions, and it was a wonderful experience. I love how all the photographs turned out!

Eugene, Oregon family photographer: Krissy, Jan, and Oliva

I had the opportunity to photograph this wonderful family last month in one of the prettiest places in Eugene!

Krissy and Jan and their daughter Olivia currently live in Albany, but they traveled to Eugene for their family photography session. Krissy grew up in Eugene, so I’m sure it was a nice experience for her to come back for a brief visit. It’s always nice to revisit your roots and spend time where so many memories were made. And now she’s able to make more—this time with her husband and child!

Eugene, Oregon baby photographer: Jayne is ONE!

Welcome back—and happy birthday, Jayne!

Jayne recently turned one year old and made a return visit to my photography studio in Eugene, Oregon for a birthday photography and cake smash session. This was the third time she’s been in my studio, and I have loved all the opportunities to photograph her in different stages over this first year of her life. I hope that in the coming years I will have many more chances to work with her. She’s an absolute delight! She is such a happy baby—and super tall! Every time I see her I can’t believe how much she’s grown. I envy her the gorgeous long legs she’s going to have when she grows up.

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?
