This was my first newborn session of 2016. I photographed her parents earlier in 2015 because they were going to try to adopt. They needed new photos to put into their package. This photo would help the birth mother decide who to gift her baby to. I received an email from baby A’s dad in December asking about my schedule for January. I easily gave him some details and had not heard back from him until roughly two weeks prior to this session . He quickly filled me in and said they were chosen by a birth mom and she just had her baby! We scheduled her session and got baby A in as soon as possible. This session was so heartwarming. This session secured my faith in God, and His plan for each of us. I was whispering to this sweet girl that she was the luckiest girl in the world because (most) anyone can have a baby, but she was chosen, hand picked by God and by secular powers to go to the family she is with now. Baby A, you are loved.
This pose is my favorite for the new Dad. It really shows the contrast of just how small baby is. Safe and secure in Dad's hands.
This little princess was all smiles. She was one of the most peaceful babies that I've ever had. You could just imagine her sweet dreams by looking at her peaceful face. She was delightful.
This little handsome autumn angel is sleeping so soundly. He came to our studio about 10 days after he was born into this world!
This little guy's dad works for the Stadium where the Washington Nationals Spring Train, so of course we had to get a shot with him there!
This is my daughter Cambria Harlow. She was born in August 2016 and is now a little over a year old. Being my first girl I wanted a bright image that spoke to her vivid personality.
This is a photo with a cause. " Unite and Save the Earth " This image is dedicated to all the protestors of the Dakota Oil pipeline.
Sweet Sleeping Beauty, Aurora. Mom fell in love w/ this tiny flower crown we had brought along with us to the session made by my assistant and owner of Bits of Love Creations, Mindy Reed. It was a must to take the session outdoors and do something enchanting and more woodland whimsey with it. Mom couldn't believe this was shot in their backyard when I was showing her images from the back of the camera during the shoot. She was even more thrilled with the final edit.
Small Céline here is two weeks old.
It's a lovely girl who did very well during the shoot.
We made a lot of different pictures.
One of the greatest assets of living in Southern California, USA, is having great beach photography opportunities all throughout the day and during every season. This photo of Emily was part of her family's holiday photo session at the beach!!!! It was wonderful to capture such a magical moment!
Noortje, who's got the most amazing blue eyes, loves her dog and it shows.
The two of them make a handsome pair.
I love the unique connection between children and their pets.
My own little boy born on October 12th
So amazing to make some newborn photo's of him.
I love the natural colors in this photo.
Meet Valentina and Francesco. Their home is filled with love and strength. Getting to know a family a little throughout the session always helps inspire my creativity more even after the shoot. I knew leaving this session I needed to make something special for this family that would speak to them.
Mama wanted the fox hat for her little guy and we wanted to keep it simple. Can't get much cuter than a little fox in a froggy pose!
Lori was like a doll in the pram
She found it amazing.
We have terrible laugh with her, she did very well.
Lori is here 1 year old
Little Miss Grace was such a pleasure to work with and curled up into a little ball so well. This is a composite shot that I had been wanting to do for months! I love rocking chairs and Grace was a perfect fit for the job.
Lilli, 8 Wochen
Mit Hilfe ihrer Eltern habe ich diese tolle Bild entstehen lassen. Sie war zuckersüß und so entspannt bei dem Shooting.
Das Bild entstand mit zwei Vorgängen 1. fotografieren auf dem Beanbag 2. Digital Prop .... Ich liebe es!!!
Isabelle & Annabelle. These non identical twins born at 35 weeks were a pleasure to photograph at 26 days old. This was one of the first few shots I took of them when they arrived in my studio.
I wanted to do something magical for this little guy and mom and dad wanted Peter Pan! I did some magic in Photoshop and even added Tinkerbell!
I love the simplicity of this image. Sometimes I need to remind myself to step back and enjoy the session. Baby was getting fussy, so I just let him relax and fall into a deeper sleep. The result is a gorgeous image.
Here's Cléo, a little girl of 9 months old.
Her bear was her favorite toy she did not want to let go.
She is so cute? She did very well during the shoot
Hahaha crazy Celine,
Céline came to celebrate her first birthday in the studio.
She loved the cake
She could not get enough.
Gorgeous newborn baby Agustín Pedro is portrayed resting atop his father’s hands. It is only an optical illusion, achieved by laying the baby in foetal position on a warm, comfortable, and safe beanbag with a black backdrop and picturing him from above. Witnessing the whole family relishing the photo shoot of their third child made my work particularly fulfilling.
Gorgeous baby Trevor, 34 weeks preemie who was exactly 2 weeks old in this photo
Delightful baby boy. He's the second light for his parents. He gave me a lot of lovely pictures with his beautiful face and cute baby cheeks.
Baby Olivia came to my studio for her Cake Smash photoshoot. Charming little girl, she smiled at my camera all the time. Her parents are two of the finest jewelry artists of the country, and they were looking for a simple and beautiful session. We all are very happy with the results.
Baby Grayson was a dreamy sleeper. It was a warmer day and I asked mom is she would consider doing an outdoor newborn session instead of indoors and she loved the idea of something different than the normal. When Mom showed up with this adorable fox crochet set I knew it was meant to be. We found just the right area to build a little fox nest. and coudldn't be happier with how it came together.

Love this set up. I love nature, so tried to "play" with leaves for this set up. Fall season gives you lots of inspiration!:) also really wanted to work with greens. So made this outfit myself for this set up. Baby boy was only 10days old<3
