Barrett Family Lifestyle Newborn Session | San Francisco Newborn Photographer

FLEETING MOMENTS | PRECIOUS MEMORIES

I had such a wonderful time getting to know Barrett family during this lifestyle newborn session at their lovely home in Redwood City.  They welcomed their second child seven days prior to our session and wanted me to photograph these first sweet moments as a family of four in the most natural way possible. My natural approach to newborn photography matched perfectly with their vision so I knew going into it that this newborn session will be nothing but a beautiful adventure and so it was.

Newborn lifestyle sessions are done in the comfort of your home during which I usually photograph at least one part of the family photos in the master bedroom.  I love photographing family snuggled together on a bed enjoying each other and taking in the reality of bringing a new baby home.  In this case, this room was also very special because baby Tennyson was born there just a week before I came to photograph.

After we spent some time photographing in the master bedroom we walked outside to capture some moments outside in their beautiful garden.  Baby Tennyson's big sister Winslow was so loving and gentle and at the same time very playful during the entire photo session.  The connection and love within this family was so wonderful to witness and to be able to translate these sweet moments into images was an honor.  This is exactly why I love being a newborn and family photographer.

At home lifestyle newborn session with beautiful baby Willow

FLEETING MOMENTS | PRECIOUS MEMORIES

This at home lifestyle newborn session with beautiful baby Willow was such a lovely experience for me. Baby Willow's parents were super sweet and so welcoming and their baby was such a joy to photograph.

 About the Session

It is always a little unnerving when I first enter my client's homes.  Homes are basically sacred places especially during those first days with newborn baby and entering them with my photography equipment can be somewhat disruptive. I always do my best to blend in as much as possible. My goal with every session is to provide comfort and a helping hand if needed.  Yes, I am there to photograph too but not until everyone feels comfortable and ready.  I have abundance of patience and throughout the entire process I encourage my clients that in the end there will be a beautiful gallery no matter what.  The beginning of this particular session was a little rocky but soon enough things settled and we had plenty of time to get beautiful images.  

My style in general is very natural however I am not opposed at all to using some props.  I have a nice variety of hand made high-quality headbands and hats that I like to incorporate in a minimalistic way.  Certainly, I do not want the prop to overpower the natural beauty of the baby and keeping things simple is the best way not to do exactly that.

I must mention that I really enjoyed the home of my clients.  Adrienne, baby Willow's mother, is a talented interior designer and the entire home is gorgeously decorated.  I especially enjoyed the nursery with flower wall details.

Lifestyle newborn session with beautiful baby Stefan

A month or so after I photographed Krulj family's maternity session here in Walnut Creek, I had the pleasure of photographing this lifestyle newborn session with their beautiful baby Stefan.  Baby Stefan made us wait a little longer then expected but he was definitely ready for his photos to be taken.  He was awake for most of the session and didn't cry even once.  It was such a fun and easy going experience for everyone and the fact that we are friends made it that much better. 

About the Family

I've known Krulj family for a few years now and when Amanda initially contacted me I was super excited to photograph these very special moments for them. Our maternity session was a way to reconnect and I could not wait to photograph their beautiful newborn baby boy.  Meeting the newest family member was a joyous occasion for me but one person who was most excited about baby Stefan's arrival was definitely his big sister Olivia. Olivia's highlight of the day was to be able to hold her big brother and give him hugs and kisses. She did an amazing job and those images are some of my favorites from the entire session.  

About the Session

I was taken aback by the level of baby Stefan's alertness.  At only eleven days old he carefully observed his parents and sister.  He smiled and looked directly at the camera.  The three hour session flew by very fast and in the end we got such a variety of beautiful imagery.  The hardest part of this job was picking out my favorites to show in this blog post.

Mid-Century Modern Maternity and Newborn Session in Oakland

FLEETING MOMENTS | PRECIOUS MEMORIES

As soon as I walked through the door of Kelsey and Jason's beautiful Oakland Hills home I was certain that our maternity and newborn session will turn out gorgeous. The home itself is decorated throughout with mid century modern style which is my favorite. Beautiful windows and abundance of character adorned this beautifully decorated interior. Jason and Kelsey are such a beautiful couple who welcomed me into their home with open arms.  They wanted low key photos which show their true personalities.  As a lifestyle photographer, that is exactly what I love to hear.  It fueled my creativity even more. 

Jason and Kelsey shared such a cute story with me about how they realized once they started dating that they actually attended the same preschool in San Jose.  It is one of those stories that you read about in feel-good articles online.  Jason recognized an expression Kelsey used that was very specific to the preschool he attended as a child and soon after they realized that they were there together playing with legos and learning ABC's.  They even showed me the photos to prove it. How cute is that?! 

About the Newborn Session

A few weeks following our session, I got the call that baby Falcon arrived. I was so excited to meet him finally.  He arrived little later then everyone expected.  He is such a handsome and beautiful baby boy. I loved being a witness to these such special moments of being first time parents for Jason and Kelsey. To say that they are smitten with Falcon would be an understatement.  The session was a breeze and Falcon was a joy to photograph.

Location

Prior to the maternity session we brainstormed ideas on where to photograph. Oakland has so many great locations but in the end we picked a perfect location, their beautiful home in Oakland Hills. The home is set on hill in such a cute neighborhood.  Both, interior of the home and exterior (the backyard) were perfect for taking photos.  I definitely wanted to explore both areas and take advantage of beautiful mid century decor throughout.

At Home Newborn Session in Hillsborough. San Francisco Bay Area Photographer

FLEETING MOMENTS | PRECIOUS MEMORIES

Even though I am based in Walnut Creek, I drive all over the Bay Area regularly to photograph my clients. For this newborn session I drove to Hillsborough, a beautiful town on the Peninsula. This sweet family welcomed their second child eleven days prior to my visit. His big sister Bella was so excited and kind of stole the show (until her nap time that is).  It was a fun session which was over in a blink of an eye.  

About the Session

This brand new baby boy didn't want to miss his very first photo shoot so he stayed awake for most of it.   He has such beautiful big eyes that I could have kept just clicking forever as he soaked in his surroundings.  As a lifestyle newborn photographer I like capturing awake shots just as much as sleepy ones.

Lifestyle Newborn Session in Berkeley

FLEETING MOMENTS | PRECIOUS MEMORIES

This lifestyle newborn session at my client's home in Berkeley was a photographers dream.  The sweetest family who just became a party of three welcomed me into their home with open arms. Their beautiful baby Poppy did everything I could ever want and then some. She even smiled at only eight days new and I am not talking about those sleepy smiles but a full on awake smile just for the camera.  

About the Session

 My client's home was stunning with windows all around and a beautiful decor to match. Natural light was in abundance even though it was a cloudy day. I worked slowly and followed along what baby Poppy wanted to do. The beauty of lifestyle sessions is that nothing is altered. It's natural and organic. When Poppy was hungry, we took a brake. Other than that, you could only hear click of my shutter and Poppy's parents loving words of amazement while looking at their daughter.

When I photograph I often focus on changing expressions and try to capture all the little movements, yawns and stretches.  Even at only eight days, newborns have their own very distinct personality. All it takes is to zoom in and pay attention.

Newborn Photo Session with Baby Mackenzie in San Jose

FLEETING MOMENTS | PRECIOUS MEMORIES

I am in love with this newborn photo session.  Baby Mackenzie was just a perfect little sleepy bundle of love.  She slept through most of the session which gave me a great opportunity to try out some of my brand new headbands.  My style is very natural and organic and I wanted to make sure that if I use props they they reflect that.  Overall, I use props minimally and also pose very minimally. I prefer to photograph babies as they are in natural state, which is absolute perfection.  

I was also excited to see baby Mackenzie's big brother whom I photographed for his newborn session three years ago.  It's always great to see my little clients growing.  This little cutie had no hair back then and look at him now with his little curls.  So adorable.
