I love including the family pet in family photos. We have our Charlie in our family photos too. Dogs are a huge part of our lives and part of the family pack. Even if a dog isn't obedient, I have owned numerous dogs and have done numerous obedient classes and sporting classes and am completely comfortable around them.
Expecting your second child is equally exciting. Bonnie and Jon had their first maternity session with me outside the summer of 2017, but in January of 2020 we had to have it in my studio. Bonnie wore a couple of my maternity gowns from my growing collection! Bonnie is a glowing beautiful momma!
Some babies sleep throughout a session, some sleep for a part of the session and some are fully awake. I It's much easier to shoot and handle sleeping babies, but I also love capturing awake babies too. Each bay seem to have these dark navy blue eyes that eventually change as they get older.
As a professional newborn photographer I go with the flow. I do consult with parents ahead of time about props and colors as well as my workflow. I also provide a detailed what to expect session guide. There are a few ways to get baby to sleep.
Shooting between 10 and 14 days old, keeping my studio very warm, using white noise, wrapping baby comfortably and a lot of shooshing and rocking.
Angela is a fellow hockey mom, teacher, wife and friend. I donated a gift certificate to my son's steak fundraiser for hockey and was so happy she won it! She and her 3 wonderful boys came out to our acreage. Sporting great fall color sweaters we headed out to the field and old truck. The boys all play hockey so it was fitting we ended wearing their favorite hockey team jerseys!
I have really enjoyed working with Numa modelling agency. I have the pleasure of meeting new models to the industry. A models first introduction to developing a portfolio is a test shoot. I book onsite make up with one of my many talented make up artists. I assist models in wardrobe selection and we pick 3-4 looks.
