Lifestyle Newborn Photography Mission Viejo

I was able to meet this 7 days new baby boy during his in home lifestyle newborn photography session. I traveled to Mission Viejo in south Orange County to photograph this little man’s arrival. He is the new baby boy for this family and cute little brother to proud big brother Derek. I have enjoyed photographing this family for the past two years as their family has grown. Karisa and Mike are blessed to have two adorable boys who look so much alike. I can’t be happier for the four of them.

Welcome to the world little one, it was so exiting to meet you at your home and pose you like I did with your big brother. We even used some of the same hats and wraps. Big brother Derek was all smiles watching his new baby brother Conor take pictures. conor_web_01 conor-web-02 conor-web-03

Can these two be any cuter together? I remember photographing Derek’s in home newborn images two years ago and now he is a proud big brother. They look so much alike already. They have the same birth mark and everything. I can’t wait to watch baby  Conor change and grow up into  a handsome young man like his big brother!

I know I will be back soon to start his Fabulous First Year photography sessions and watch him grow as he completes his milestones. Congratulations to Mom, Dad, & Big Brother on their precious new family member.

OC Baby Photography: Derek turns 1

I feel so lucky to have been able to photograph baby Derek during his Fabulous First Year. The OC baby was such a joy to capture every 3 months for the past year! I am so pleased with how each session brought out a new side of his personality. Mom, dad, and I loved watching him grow and change during each photography session. It seems so long ago that he was just a newborn being cradled in their loving arms, now he is up and on the move, walking and saying some words. derek1yr_01 derek1yr_02 derek1yr_04 derek1yr_05 derek1yr_06 derek1yr_03

So loving this little man! He was such a great model during each and every photography session. We had a lot of fun dressing him up each time we met. Ladies, watch out for this cutie pie! He is on the loose… Until we meet again baby Derek!

OC Baby Photography: Baby Derek is 9 months!

Baby Derek had his 9 month photo shoot recently at his home in sunny Orange County, California. This handsome, blue-eyed baby boy is growing up so quickly I can’t even believe it. That is why I just love the Fabulous First Year package,  it allows me to document each baby’s change and growth over the course of one year from Newborn to One Year. I know mom and dad have enjoyed each photo session too as it captures these divine moments in baby Derek’s first year. It seems like just yesterday we were taking his newborn pictures, his 3 month pictures, and his 6 month pictures.  

 

Pretty soon we will be ready to take his One Year photos, who knows what he will be running to then. I’m pretty sure he will have both feet planted on the ground, hopefully I will be able to catch him. I can’t wait to share those with you all soon.

OC Baby Photography: Fabulous First Year: Ayva’s 9 month shoot

The Fabulous First year of this sweet girl continues. As we know, this darling baby girl is one of my Fabulous First year babies. We have seen grow and change from a newborn {here}, into a smiley three month old {here}, a girly six month old {here}  and now a mover and a shaker in this 9 month photo session. Ayva turned 9 months in the heat of the summer and boy is she lookin cute in those shades and playing out side. Since it still feels like summer here in the OC, I thought I would treat you to these pictures of one of my favorite all time gals. 

Big brother Zach couldn’t resist getting in the tub and playing too. We had so much fun taking these shots during one of the hottest days in the summer. Both of the kiddos loved making bubbles in the bucket and splashing around to cool off in the hot sun.

Can’t wait for the 1 year shoot Miss Ayva!!!

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.
