Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Xander!



I am super excited to introduce all of you to Xander! This sweetie came to my studio last month and let me get some great photos of him. I think you’re going to enjoy them!

I have been so excited to meet this little guy ever since his dad, Chris, told me that he and Xander’s mom, Kristen, were expecting. Chris has been my personal trainer off and on for the last eight years with his boot camp classes. Currently he’s working at Core Fusion. It’s inside the International Fitness building on Commerce Street here in Eugene, so if you’re needing a good workout, Chris is your man! You can check out Core Fusion’s FaceBook page here.

It’s always extra fun to do photographs of folks I know, so I was delighted when Chris asked if I could do a newborn photography session of Xander. I told him it could be done on one condition: he was going to have to bring a kettlebell along so I could pose Xander with it. Kettlebell use is dominant in our workouts, and I just didn’t feel like his session would be complete without it! I love the picture of Xander propping himself up on it as he sleeps. The cast iron weight is almost as big as he is. . .and definitely heavier! (Trust me, I speak from experience.)

We went with the weight theme again (though admittedly a different type of weight), when we settled Xander down for a nap in the basket of my old-fashioned scale. We made sure to make it nice and comfortable with a thick blanket he could snuggle on.

I also love the individual shots of Xander with both of his parents. If you look closely you’ll see that he has the cutest little smile on his face whenever his mom or dad are holding him. He must know he’s in good hands!

We chose some relatively dark, masculine colors for Xander’s newborn photography session, going with bold grays and blues, plus some black and white photography with a dark, dramatic background. I think it worked great, especially as we mixed some white and cream in there for a lighter touch.

Xander is such a handsome little guy. His skin has a slightly ruddy glow to it that I just love, and his hair looks quite dark in some lights, and reddish in others. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what color it decides to turn out as he gets older!

It was so much fun to welcome Xander and his mom and dad to my photography studio in Eugene, Oregon and to meet this sweet and beautiful baby boy. He was so well behaved while I took pictures, and looked great in everything from overalls to stripy pants! I’m so glad I got to be his newborn photographer, and also glad that I’ll continue to hear about him and keep in touch with how he’s doing through his dad. I’m sure there will be lots to tell!
