Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Emmett!

This little guy was so precious! Sarah and Brian brought in their new cutie Emmett for newborn photos back in November. (I’m actually having a hard time believing we’re already through the first quarter of 2022! Is that just me?) He was a total sweetheart!

Parents are always welcome to bring special items from home. In this case, mom and dad brought a colorful quilt that a family member had made. Even though our session took place in the fall, the quilt’s bright colors reminded me of spring! It also gave us a beautiful splash of color, since most of our photos were with all-white backgrounds. A blue beanbag and heart from my studio collection of props matched the quilt perfectly.

Since this newborn photography session took place just a month before Christmas, mom and dad requested a holiday setup. This is always a fun option if your session takes place shortly before a major holiday like Christmas or Easter. It’s generally easy to work in just a single holiday-themed setup, and these kinds of images make the cutest personalized greeting cards!

Brian and Sarah also asked for a Star Wars setup. Emmett looked adorable tucked in with all of his cool sci-fi buddies! They’re ready for adventure in a galaxy far, far away…after their nap, of course!

I had a great time being the Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer for this cute little guy, and loved all the different setups we used. What a fun variety of baby pictures!

Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Charlotte!

Erin and Dylan came to see me with their new baby girl, Charlotte, for newborn photos. She was so cute!

I had met Erin before and it was great getting to know Dylan as well. Since both parents were there I convinced them to do family pictures even though they’d decided they were going to bypass those. A lot of times new parents feel super tired and are worried they don’t look their best, or they were too tired to get ready before their little one’s newborn photography session. We’ve all been there! New babies are a lot of work, but family is everything and I really believe it’s worth it to have photos with your little one no matter what. And, as I told Erin and Dylan, the beauty of digital images is that there’s no commitment. You can choose whether you want to purchase them or not, so there’s no harm in taking a few just in case! They ended up loving the family images as well, so I’m really glad we did those shots, even if it wasn’t quite according to plan. They will treasure those pictures forever!

Of course, most of this newborn photography session was focused on baby. Charlotte had the best lips and such beautiful dark hair. We picked out some really pretty rose pinks and mauves and combined them with neutrals for a very warm, feminine look. Bucket poses are really popular right now, so we did some of those, and we also used my wooden heart bowl (another client favorite) surrounded with flowers.

I loved the way Charlotte liked to wrinkle up her little face while she was sleeping!

I’m so glad I could be the Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer for this beautiful baby girl and her parents. If you’re looking for your own newborn photos, I hope you’ll get in touch! (Don’t worry, if you really don’t want to do parent photos I won’t force you.) 😊

Eugene, Oregon Newborn Photographer: Welcome Thiago!

Karla and Francisco brought in their new baby boy to my Eugene, Oregon photography studio. Isn’t he adorable? Their two older kiddos came too and we got some sibling and family photos, but I decided to just share some of the newborn-only shots today. Here are a few of the baby pics from Thiago’s newborn photography session. Enjoy!

Thiago had the best hair! Tons of it, and so soft and fluffy! He was also super squishy, which I can’t resist. 😊 He slept great and was very easy to pose.

We used cream, white, and blue for his pictures. What a dreamy color combo! It was perfect for my moon and stars props. And I also just happened to have a cowboy hat that we knew he would look amazing in. We were right! Whether you keep it simple with just a couple of swaddles or go all out with hats and outfits, it’s always fun to play dress up with these little guys. 

There are so many options to choose from at the studio, so I’d definitely recommend that you take a look at my newborn gallery and past blog posts to get an idea of the variety I have available and figure out what your own preferences are. Planning your little one’s photoshoot can be a great memory in and of itself, so have fun with it! And remember, I’m always here if you need recommendations or ideas. As a Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer that’s kinda what I do best!

Eugene Oregon Twin Newborn Photographer: Welcome Kash and Kenadee!

I’m so excited to share the photos from this twins newborn photography session! Corina and Joshua brought their new bundles of joy—a boy and a girl—to my Eugene, Oregon photography studio for pictures. Kenadee and Kash were absolutely adorable!

Newborn photography with twins is always so much fun! For reasons of both safety and convenience, I have an assistant lend an extra hand when there are two babies. This ensures that both little ones are totally safe, secure, and comfortable through the entire process.

Although my full newborn photo sessions come with the option of doing parent/sibling pictures, mom and dad wanted to just focus on the babies and not do any family images. Corina also told me she’s not a big fan of hats and headbands, so we kept it pretty simple.

When it comes to color schemes for twins newborn photography, there are a ton of options—especially when you have a brother and sister! Dressing baby boy in blue and baby girl in pink is a popular choice, as is choosing gender neutral colors like green or yellow. For Kash and Kenadee we did almost exclusively neutral colors like white and gray. We did add a splash of yellow, and of course our Ducks sports team outfits! (If you need more inspiration on colors and setups for boy and girl twins, be sure to check out this session with big sister and parents, this one with big brother and parents, and this one where we incorporated some of mom and dad’s first responder equipment.)

Loved being the Eugene, Oregon twin newborn photographer for this sweet little duo!

No matter how many little ones you’re welcoming to the family, I’d love to welcome them to the studio! Let’s get you on the schedule so we can record those memories!

Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Aila!

Aida and Aziz brought their gorgeous new baby daughter Aila to my photography studio in September. This little pumpkin was absolutely perfect!

Many times clients will choose a single theme for their newborn photo session. But there’s no reason you can’t choose a couple! Mom asked for baby pictures with rainbow baby, moon and stars, and fall themes, and we were able to capture all of them. Aila was super cooperative as we changed setups, switched out props, and got her in and out of various swaddles.

Since we were working with several different themes, we didn’t really stick to a particular color scheme. Mom just picked out whatever caught her eye and we ended up with a really fun and beautiful variety of pinks, purples, yellows, and neutral colors in addition to our themed pictures. When it comes to choosing colors and props, it really is all about how you’re going to use your finished newborn photos. Some people like to do complementary colors because they’re going to have several photos displayed on one wall, they have a particular decorative style in their home that they want the pictures to match, or they want all the photos to look like they belong together in a photo album. But if you’re going to use your pictures in a few different ways, sometimes choosing 3 or 4 colors is the best way to go.

Mom also brought her own baby blanket so that we could get some pictures of Aila lying on it. So cute! I loved the blanket itself, with the cute little birds, and thought that a parents’ baby blanket was such a sweet and sentimental heirloom item to bring from home.

Eugene Oregon cake smash photographer: Olive is ONE!

Happy first birthday, Olive! It was so fun to have this little sweetheart and her family back in my Eugene, Oregon photo studio again. I have been photographing this group ever since big sister Violet was a newborn. It’s been such a pleasure getting to know them and helping them capture the big milestones in their family’s life!

This time we were celebrating their youngest daughter’s first birthday with a cake smash photography session. It was extra fun to have Jacoby and Violet with us too! For some reason, although I do a lot of cake smash sessions, it’s almost always just baby and parents who come to the studio. Maybe because they want the focus to be on the birthday boy or girl—but I think it’s a great idea to get family photos at the same time. After all, if you’ve got one kiddo being photographed already, what better time to get some adorable sibling photos, right? We even took a little time out to get individual portraits of all three kiddos plus some family shots.

Olive was the cutest thing. I loved her little tutu and big grin, and she loved being the star of the show! She was super smiley and loved both posing and eating. As you can see, she pretty much decimated her cake—which is exactly what we wanted!

The most exciting part of this cake smash photography session though, was that Olive took her first steps during the shoot and I was able to capture it! Talk about milestone photography! Maybe it was the excitement of being in the studio, or maybe it was just all that sugar, but whatever it was we were all so excited to see her taking those first steps—with frosting all over her toes! Now that’s a moment we’ll never forget!

Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Bryson!

Happy New Year, everyone! I don’t know about you, but it felt to me like 2021 went by in the blink of an eye. I had so much keeping me busy as a mom and as a photographer—all great things, and I’m looking forward to new experiences and memories in 2022!

The new year is a time for new beginnings, so what better way to start it off than with a post about a newborn photography session? As a photographer who specializes in newborns, I’m lucky enough to be reminded of the blessings of new life almost every day. It’s just one of the many reasons I love capturing the first days with these sweet little ones!

Nakayla and Joseph brought new baby brother Bryson to my Eugene, Oregon photography studio along with older siblings Braxton and Brooklyn. This was the first time I’d met this family, and I loved them immediately! They were so sweet and loving with each other, and big brother and sister did an absolutely stellar job participating in their little brother’s newborn photos!

I also loved the colors this mom and dad chose! I think green is so pretty for both boys and girls, and using it gave us the perfect excuse to incorporate some plants into our session. I’ve also found that earthier shades of green, like olive and sage, are almost as flexible as neutrals, so they go beautifully with a wider variety of other colors. We used green mostly with quiet colors like gray, white, and light brown for these baby pictures, and it was a great choice!

So glad I had the chance to meet this beautiful group and help them welcome the newest member of the family! I would love to do the same for you, so please get in touch and let’s capture all the beautiful memories of this new year together!

Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Hazel!

It’s almost Christmas! And I can’t think of a better way to kick off the holiday weekend than with these warm and cozy baby pictures from Hazel’s newborn photography session!

Hazel came to my Eugene, Oregon photography studio with mom (Faith), dad (Garrison), and big brother Theo. Such a sweet family!

I loved the deep, non-traditional colors Faith chose for her daughter’s newborn photos. I hardly ever get to use brown at all, and especially not for baby girls. But it can be such a beautiful color! We offset it with some cream flowers and wraps and it turned out looking so rich and beautiful. And the rust color gave me all the cozy pumpkin spice vibes! Although there’s absolutely nothing wrong with the traditional pink for girls and blue for boys, you really do have so many color options available. So get creative and don’t be afraid to try something different! I’m always happy to point you to props and outfits in the studio that would go well with your chosen color theme—no matter what it is!

We also did a few setups with lighter colors, so we really got the best of both worlds! Mint and pale pink is a gorgeous combination for little girls, and the wooden swing prop is one of my faves.

One of the things I love about being a Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer is getting the family involved in baby pictures. Obviously this is totally up to you, but all of my full newborn photo sessions include parent and sibling pictures as an option for you, and it’s one I definitely encourage! It was so nice to get these sweet pictures of Hazel with her parents and big brother.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the newborn pics of little Hazel and that they’ve put you in that feel-good holiday mood! Have a wonderful holiday season, and I hope I’ll be seeing lots of you in the studio in the new year!
