Connor - Posed Newborn Portraits

I'd like you to meet sweet baby Connor. This session is one that I probably won't ever forget, but probably not for the reasons you might think.

You see, while we had planned his newborn photo session for a couple of months it almost didn't happen. His birth went fine and all was well with him and his momma. But the night before the session was scheduled our little city of Redding was hit with a devastating wildfire. The Carr fire has destroyed nearly 200,000 acres and over 1000 homes.  

My home and studio weren't far from the evacuation lines and we were all fearful that the worst would come. But thankfully all turned out ok! Our vehicles and the farm were completely covered in ash and burnt cinders, but no damage. So a couple of days later Connor's parents were able to bring him by for his session.

Connor was awake and active when he arrived. But he couldn't resist all of my tricks for getting babies to sleep! Once I got him settled in he slept like a rock for the rest of his session.

Danielle & Casey - Maternity Portraits in Redding, CA

It's funny how life happens - I was doing so well at keeping up on my blog until this Spring and now I've neglected it for many months. But all for good reason! I've been very busy shooting a bunch of sessions! Blogging certainly takes a backseat to taking care of my clients and getting work done. So I'm going to try to get a few blogs up, but no promises :)

I'd like to introduce you to quite honestly two of the kindest people I've ever met, Danielle and her husband Casey. These two just exude calm and happy energy and it was such a pleasure to be around them. Their session was very relaxed and we enjoyed playing around in the waters of Whiskeytown Lake on a hot Redding day.

Ladies, please take note of Casey's wardrobe here. If you all can get your guys to dress like this for every photo shoot that would be great! LOL Just teasing of course!
