Ibhan had a tough time sleeping this day. Although he was awake, he was really calm. After he wore himself out viewing the new world around him his eyes finally closed and he went into the most darling peaceful sleep. This is a composite shot in which I wanted to represent the bright colors of the Indian culture.
This sweet little elf was just 10 days old at her newborn photo shoot. She broke a two month long streak of newborn boys in the studio so we had a little extra fun with props and colors during her session. With Christmas just a few weeks away, mom fell in love with this set up too.
This gorgeous baby is Michael. He is 11 days old in this photograph.
The photo shoot was a gift to my best friend. We were waiting for this moment for such a long time. And the miracle happened, little prince Michael was born. The photograph was taken in my home based studio, using natural light. The idea was to create a unique atmosphere for the baby to make him feel comfy and relaxed. We achieved what we wanted and this photograph is a well proof of it.
All props were handmade by yours truly.
Meet Ibhan! He is named after the Indian God Lord Ganesh Ibahn. His parents wanted to represent his name in an image so I created a composite shot because I clearly don't have a budget to rent an elephant for the day:) . The first thing that came to mind was wanting him to have a grand presentation to the Indian God and what better way to do that then with one hand of each parent. I am so in love with this image that I just may hang it in my own home.
These two little sisters waited anxiously upon the arrival of this little one, moments of play and fun to obtain this capture.
A session on two different days, the first day was impossible because of the cramps, but the next day was their moment of tranquility and we were able to get the siblings photo.
This is my daughter Cambria. We recently visited Santa's Tree farm in Half Moon Bay, CA and they had this perfect bridge! Her brother was running all over the place and in this very moment she was starring at him because he had fallen down and was crying.
this little man is one of the first visitors to my new home studio, he was just the sweetest little baby ever. I have been dreaming about a home studio for years and now I finally am able to do the type of newborn photography I dream about. It's the best feeling in the world to follow your dreams and they start to be realized.
