Lifestyle Newborn Session: Aliso Viejo

Hooray!!! A sweet new baby boy is born! I am excited to share this lifestyle newborn session with you all today. Precious baby Sawyer has arrived and I couldn’t be happier for his parents. The session takes place at the family home, in Aliso Viejo. I met mom and dad a few months back when I photographed their maternity session. They were eagerly anticipating the arrival of baby boy Sawyer. I can’t think of anything more precious than a little bundle of joy arriving into the lives of a perfect couple. Below is first glimpse into baby Sawyer’s new life.

I just love capturing the smile on his face!

Some of my favorite images are in black and white! The contrast of the black with the sweet creamy skin of the baby is so powerful. I adore the playful image of baby Sawyer, swaddled up and staring at the camera. Lifestyle newborn sessions show how baby really is.

Below is the first family portrait of the new parents. Baby Sawyer is literally in good hands.

Lifestyle newborn photography sessions are done in your home around 2-10 day s after the baby is born. The timing of the newborn session is essential to ensure that the baby is sleepy for longer periods of time.

Classic Boudoir: Mylene In Paris

It was thrilling to be able to travel to Paris in May to photograph some amazing women! First up on the blog is the beautiful Mylene. She was ever so gorgeous and brave during her mini boudoir session. Although there was a language barrier, she came out of her shell during the shoot. Her session took place on location at the fabulous St. James Hotel in Paris, France. This super sheik hotel was the perfect French backdrop for adding in some drama, sophistication, and whimsy. One of these days I will go back there and hopefully fun into some amazing French women to shoot there again.
