Lifestyle Newborn Photography in San Clemente on the blog today! This sweet little session is sure to bring a smile to your face. Not only was baby simply precious but the family’s two pups made a special appearance, watching over their newest family member. Should you include the dogs? The answer is ALWAYS yes! I’m a firm believer that dogs and kids always add a layer of authenticity to any photograph. They make sure we’re all keeping it real!

Oceanside In-Home Newborn Photography on the blog today! This session is yet another example of the beauty of lifestyle newborn photography. Typically I use my lifestyle sessions to capture baby as part of the home and family but this family had a special request. Because their oldest daughter is away at school, they didn’t want to have family photos taken without her. No problem! We focused on really sweet, simple, naturally posed shots of *just baby* and I snuck in one adorable moment of the two babies of the family! Lifestyle newborn photography is adaptable and perfect for meeting the needs of each family in the comfort of their own home. Without further ado….Enjoy adorable baby Jonathon!

Family Photography at Balboa Park in San Diego California takes a bit of effort (Hello, parking!!) but its so worth it! This little hidden spot, known as the Old Cactus Garden, may be my favorite spot of this whole amazing location. Oh and the cats agree…this place is a cat hangout! Its hilarious and awesome! We saw at least 20 different cats during our session.

Yes, the cactus garden was an amazing background but these 4 were the star of the show! I started photographing this family at their gender reveal (featured on NAPCP!) when these two were about the size of grapes! From there I photographed Casey’s maternity session and then the twins’ newborn session! Its always a joy to have these amazing people in front of my lens!

San Marcos Lifestyle Newborn Photography ⎮In-Home Mobile Newborn Photography

I just loved meeting this sweet little family! When I arrived at their home, I started with a tour of the areas we might use as a setting for our session and the FIRST thing I noticed was that Mom & Dad had prominently displayed canvas from their last lifestyle newborn photography session right over the master bed! I can’t tell you how much I LOVE this! They did not live here when their first child was born and I was not their photographer then but I love knowing that a family is going to actually use and display their photos! Oh and by the way here’s an awesome take on why displaying photos of your children is so amazing! Also I thought those canvas just made a great backdrop for our photos celebrating baby girl #2!

This session is a great example of why I love lifestyle newborn photography. I love that big sister was able to stay in her comfort zone at home and Rio the dog was able to join the whole family for a few shots too! This is what in-home newborn photography sessions are all about…baby as part of the family and the home!

Scroll on down for a sampling of the images I took during this sweet session. I hope you enjoy all of the love and sweetness this family has to offer.

A 2020 book list from a photographer and not one of them is photography related! Both photography and reading bring so much joy in my life so I thought reading deserved a spot on the blog too! I love how both good photography and good writing can capture the essence of a moment in ways that surprise you and and move you because you know its true….even though you could never put it into words until you read it/saw it. Below is a list of almost every book I read in 2019 in no particular order.

Best for my Soul? Searching for Sunday, Inspired, Becoming Michelle Obama, and Becoming Mrs. Lewis.

Best Writing? Heavy, Fates & Furies

Worst Book Overall? The Library Book! So boring, haha!

Most Anticipated? The Testaments! I read the Handmaid’s Tale in College and am all up to date on the show so this was a must and it did not disappoint!

What’s on your list for 2020? I’m starting with delving into more C.S. Lewis (Becoming Mrs. Lewis inspired me) and also re-reading Toni Morrison’s the Bluest Eye. There are a few on my shelf that I never finished in 2019…Hold Still by Sally Mann (actually photography related!), The Secret Wife of Aaron Burr, The Rosie Project to name a few.
