I Heart Faces│Yellow {Sacramento Newborn Photographer}

"Yellow" is the theme this week over at I Heart Faces so I am sharing a creative edit with you from a recent newborn session. I adored this yellow headband and it was this Daddy's favorite for his girl as well.

You can head on over to see more "Yellow" submissions for the week.

I Heart Faces│May Flowers

They may not be bright and colorful, but I love their beautiful simplicity.  To see more lovely flowers you can visit I Heart Faces.

Elizabeth + Family│Sacramento Lifestyle Photographer

Little Miss Elizabeth was already about a month old for our "newborn" session and wasn't too sleepy, but she was still such a doll and loved being swaddled.  To make her session extra special we were able to incorporate extended family that was in town and of course we included her big sisters too!

Poor Sophia had a full leg cast but showed us she can get around just fine and adores her newest little sister!

Elizabeth is blessed with a gorgeous and oh so loving mama!


Fun time romping around with Uncle Tim!

I'll leave you with this last one of Great Grandma holding her sweet gal!

Emma│Sacramento Newborn Photographer

Oh Emma - what a sweet little joy you were to photograph!  You may remember her parents as they were excitedly anticipating her arrival in their maternity session and she has been such a little blessing to them!

Oh I love when newborns give me a little smile!

Some gorgeous black and whites...

Beauty is all in the little details...

Miracles DO Happen│Sacramento Newborn Photographer

Miss Madelyn was a miracle from the start, surprising her parents who had already lovingly adopted two children believing they couldn't conceive.  Then only 23 weeks into the pregnancy Miss Madelyn was born weighing only 1 lb. and miraculously survived the next 3 months in the NICU.  Our session was actually a week before her April 5th due date.  Madelyn was released home but unfortunately had to be on oxygen 24/7 in those weeks after leaving the hospital.  Despite needing the constant oxygen, Madelyn was a healthy, dare I say, delightfully chunky little girl with a sweet and easy-going personality.  What a blessing it was to be part of documenting this miracle baby, a true gift from above!

I took one shot with the oxygen, but mom wanted the majority of images to focus on sweet Madelyn and I can't blame her one bit!

The whole family - dressed to impress and just in time for Easter!

Garrett, Gabby & Madelyn - it was a joy to meet you!

Let me just leave you with a smile...

Baby Blues│Sacramento Children's Photographer

One of my favorite parts of having my business grow is the increased opportunity I have to meet amazing people and their children.  I met these two cuties on the morning of our session and enjoyed getting to know their parents and capturing a bit of their personalities.  Enjoy meeting the adorable Alison and Riley!

I just adore Alison's big blue eyes!
