worth the wait | folsom newborn photographer

I’m sure that Mom would agree that this little cutie was worth the wait. When I contacted her to touch base regarding our upcoming newborn session, she mentioned that she was still pregnant–that {C} was just too cozy and wasn’t quite ready to make his debut. When I arrived for the photoshoot {C} was a wide eyed, alert ten day old boy. But after an hour of my warm space heater, sound machine, and a few snacks, he eventually gave in. And once again, he proved that it was definitely worth the wait! Nothing could wake this little guy from his slumber and I’m so glad. He gave us some great poses and adorable sleepy smiles.

wonderland | folsom portrait photographer

I must admit, this is the first photoshoot that I have actually had a dream about–I was really that excited. Our shoot has been in the works for quite a while now and it seemed like every day I would brainstorm a new idea for a pose, a prop, or a concept. When Mom emailed me a month ago and told me that {S} loved the new Alice in Wonderland movie, and especially the Avril Lavigne video, I knew this session would rock. I’ve been really into theme / styled sessions lately and the idea of an Alice in Wonderland photoshoot got my creative juices flowing. And I couldn’t have asked for a better “Alice”. {S} was such a natural in front of the camera. She endured hundreds (literally hundreds) of mosquitos, mud, and itchy grass. I can’t even tell you how many bugs I had to clone out of these images. But it was all worth it in the end. From “Alice” drinking her tea to The Queen of Hearts, {S} embodied each character so well and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. I’ve included a slideshow instead of my usual sneak peek just because there are too many great ones not to share here on the blog. Enjoy your escape to wonderland!

we all scream for ice cream | folsom children’s photographer

I get all giddy when a client is willing to do something a little different. Though I absolutely love working in the studio, when a mom suggests doing something more edgy I get really excited. I love being able to get creative (or even a little messy) with a session and this Tuesday we did just that. When Mom said it was okay to spoil the boys’ dinner with an ice cream appetizer, I knew it would be an awesome shoot. But how could it be anything but awesome with these two cuties in front of my lens?

And yes, we did get some traditional shots for the relatives. But I really love these ones that tell a story. And just look at those eyes! I have a feeling that these little guys will get out of many situations throughout their lives by their adorable puppy dog eyes alone. I know they have me wrapped around their little fingers!
Mom–thank you again for such a wonderful afternoon. I have so many more great images that I just can’t wait to edit. I’ll let you know as soon as your gallery is up!
