Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Ace!


Brittanie, Colby, and Knox brought in new brother Ace for his newborn photography session last month. I’ve been photographing for this family ever since Brittanie was pregnant with Knox, doing maternity, newborn, and milestone sessions. Their maternity sessions have been especially fun since Colby and Brittanie love travel and the outdoors: We did a mountain maternity shoot at Odell Lake for their first pregnancy, and when they were expecting Ace we did a coastal shoot near the Heceta Head Lighthouse in Florence. And of course it’s been so much fun to have Knox in my Eugene, Oregon photography studio every few months. Now it’s Ace’s turn!

Ace was such a cutie! I thought he looked a lot like his big brother did as a newborn, but of course every baby is different. You can check out Knox’s newborn photos here if you want to do your own comparison. They had the same chubby little face and chunky build though. I think the biggest difference is that Ace didn’t have as much hair as Knox did! He was totally adorable and slept wonderfully for me. I love how round his face is!

We wanted Ace’s newborn photography session to have some similarities to Knox’s, but also to have its own unique feel. One way we did that was to recreate the same parent/infant shots we had done in our previous newborn session with the same poses, but against a different backdrop. We also used similar colors in both sessions: lots of grays and creams, with a splash of blue.

Knox was amazing with his new little brother! He is always so smiley and happy whenever I see him, and he has the cutest grin. (And I am totally loving the little man-bun he has going! Is that not the cutest thing ever?) He was just as cheerful as ever this time around, and so good with Ace. It was really adorable to watch them together.

Brittanie and Colby are planning to do milestone sessions for Ace every three months or so, just like they did for Knox during his first year of life. I’m super excited that I’ll get to continue seeing them regularly in my photography studio! I love photographing these adorable babies as newborns, and then getting to watch how much they grow and change. I’m so happy for this awesome family, and feel very lucky to be their Eugene, Oregon photographer.
