I had a really fun newborn portrait and family photography session in my Boulder studio a few months ago. I did a combination of just the baby, the baby with each family member, the family all together and some macro images of baby parts – a must have with newborn photography sessions. This little guy gave us some great opportunities to capture images of him sleeping and being fully awake.
I photographed this amazing family at Wonderland Lake in Boulder, Colorado. The kids had a great time running up and down the trail and the dogs enjoyed playing in the water. The mother of this family is the owner of Carley Barley, a local business in which she designs and creates baby clothes that are 100% organic and made with eco friendly dyes. Scroll to the bottom of this post to see some gorgeous babies modeling these adorable clothes. I photographed the images for the Carley Barley catalog and you can see more clothing and images here: www.carleybarley.com. Yay families!
Newborn babies are great to photograph as soon as you are ready. They change quickly so bring them in for their photos before too much time goes by. The best time for your newborn portrait session is between seven and 14 days but if you do miss that time frame, pick a time that works best for you. I’m happy to do portrait sessions at your home if that makes life easier for you! This little guy took a couple of naps at my Boulder studio, which made for some wonderful poses.
This was my third family portrait session with this Boulder family and as usual, there were lots of laughs, playing and tail wagging. One of the best things about family photography is seeing families time and again and seeing how quickly their children grow. We had a perfect fall day full of colorful leaves to play with and to use for a beautiful background.
These two pups created lots of laughs at their pet portrait session in Louisville. Both are seniors but had plenty of energy running around the yard, jumping for treats and Lady Bug, a Great Dane, especially liked showing off her “baby” stuffie. Boomer is a Beagle and is now 10 1/2 years old!
A few weekends ago I did a portrait session in Boulder with my bestie and her granddaughter. We took a walk in the woods, the tall grasses and hung out in my back yard while they played together. These lifestyle portrait sessions are really fun and I enjoy creating images of kids being kids while also creating some nice portraits.
I have to confess, I took these dog photos around a year ago but couldn’t resist posting them – these pups are just so cute! Lola is the big sister who welcomed her baby brother Axel with loving, open paws. She’s been a great leader for Axel, showing him the ropes and the two have created a wonderful bond together. Photographing these dogs together was really fun and Axel just followed Lola’s lead when posing for his photos. He was though, more interested in looking at her than looking at the camera.
Parker came into my studio for his one year birthday portrait session. This would be the fourth time I’ve done Parker’s baby photos since his parents have been so good about documenting his first year of life, spacing out his sessions every several months since his birth. We enjoyed using the props his mother brought with her and Parker especially enjoyed devouring his birthday cake!
