Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Penelope!

 Looking forward to sharing these photos! These are from a super fun newborn photography session I did earlier this year. Arianna and Hector brought big sister Maya and new baby girl Penelope to my photo studio in Eugene, Oregon towards the end of January for some newborn and family pictures, and we had such a great time together!

I love the name Penelope. This is a multi-lingual family (they speak English, Spanish, and Italian) so Mom and Dad told me they like to choose names that translate well into all three languages. I think that’s great! Really like how it gives equal honor and respect to all the different heritages in their family.

Penelope was such a cutie! Loved all that dark hair and sweet baby fuzz. She slept wonderfully, so we were able to get a ton of variety and play around with lots of different outfits and poses. As a Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer with nearly a decade of experience photographing these little ones, I’ve learned lots of tricks for keeping babies calm. But I have to say, it’s nice when baby is so easygoing that I barely even have to try!

Since Penelope was so happy to sleep, we pulled out all the stops. Swings, slings, buckets, beanbags; swaddle shots, naked shots, outfits, headbands—she did great with everything!

Mom and Dad chose mostly neutral colors (gray, white, and cream) for Penelope’s newborn photo shoot, with just the tiniest bit of pale pink. I think it turned out so pretty! Even though our pink was very muted and we didn’t use much of it, our session still has a sweet, girly feel thanks to the soft textures, lace, and the occasional flower or pearl.

Big sister Maya was also amazing with new baby Penelope. Just as I’ve learned tricks for keeping babies calm, I’ve also learned ways to get reluctant older siblings to participate in a newborn photography session. Some big brothers and sisters are not into it! No problem at all with Maya though. She was happy to cuddle with baby, and was awesome about posing and looking at the camera. What a superstar!

Loved spending a few hours with this beautiful family! They were truly a pleasure, and I don’t think our session could have gone any more smoothly.
