Baby Luke: Newborn Session

Photographing families over and over as their families grow is such a cool experience. Tonight I am sharing Luke Chappell’s newborn session. I think the last time I saw this family was when I photographed his big sister’s newborn session and she’ll be two years old soon! Time flies!

Luke is just about a week old in his newborn photos and such a handsome little guy. He wasn’t a big fan of being moved during his session so we had to make sure he got his mommy snuggles to keep him happy. His nursery is decorated in a sports theme with lots of details from his Dad’s sports collection. Being an outdoor lover myself I think my favorite part about his room is the mounted antlers above his crib. If I have a boy someday, I may need to steel this idea. You’ll also see a photo of a book called Willow Wallaby which is a children’s book that Katie (Luke’s mom) wrote! What a week memory to have photos of the book as part of his newborn session! Luke also has his very own signed Pacquiao boxing glove so of course we had to photograph him next to it. During his session we really wanted to get big sister Alivia giving him kisses because that is her favorite thing to do so you’ll see a few photos in there of her being a sweet big sister.

After photographing photos of just Luke we headed outside to get a few family photos of all four of them. We did a lot of counting to get Alivia to smile because her favorite thing right now is to count to 10, with 10 being the coolest number and most worthy of a huge smile when we said it.

Enjoy the cuteness and congrats Matt & Katie!



Baby Cameron: Santa Clarita Photographer

When it comes to babies I just can’t get enough of their cute little finger, toes and sleepy eyes. I love photographing them and it’s always extra special when I already know the family.  I get to capture such precious memories in peoples lives and for that I am just so very grateful! Tonight I get to share baby Cameron’s newborn session! I actually photographed Christine & Eric’s wedding last year so when I heard the news that they were expecting I was so excited for them! Cameron was born on Easter this year which made the day extra special. So happy for you Christine & Eric! Can’t wait to watch your handsome little man grow!

Baby Reese: Santa Clarita Newborn

Little Reese finally made her entrance to the world on June 20th in Santa Clarita, California!  Her momma was on bed rest at one point trying to keep from going into labor too early and once they were in the safe zone Reese decided to take her time and make her mom and dad wait a little longer. 🙂

Babies really are the sweetest little things and Reese was no exception. Such a beautiful little girl and she was so good for her session. My favorite part was when she smiled repeatedly when her daddy would talk to her. It was soooo cute! Apparently she still does that so it looks like she’s definitely a daddy’s girl.

Congratulations to our friends Drew & Emily! So happy for the two of you! Reese is adorable and she’s a blessed girl to have you two as parents.

Jadon Tyler: Newborn Baby Boy

This cute little guy was born a little early weighing 6lb 14oz and had to stay a little longer in the hospital until his lungs were completely developed. God surprised everyone brought baby Jadon home sooner than expected and he’s doing so well now. A strong little guy for sure! In fact during his session he gave a few strong wiggles and tried getting some stretching time in. He’s such a cutie and was so good for his newborn session. Congrats John & Pearl on your precious new little boy and congrats to Grandma & Grandpa on their first grandbaby!
