Indigo…7 days

Soft and sweet…baby Indigo.  Indigo recently came to see me with her family for her professional newborn portraits, something I have been specializing in for over 14 years.  Years of learning how to calm and pose babies, and this little ones can still surprise me!  It is so precious how their little personalities are evident, even at just a week old.  So unique, created so wonderfully unique!  Enjoy Indigo’s baby portraits…Portland Newborn Photographer

Isn’t she just precious?  She was so cozy!  The studio is always kept very warm when I am photographing a newborn.  Most babies (if fact, I’ve only ever met two brothers who didn’t like the heat) love to be extra warm when they’re naked.  So I always tell mom and dad to wear cool clothing for the session.

This little look just cracks me up!  She’s trying to figure out that lady with the big camera and lights.

Textures, textures!  I love textures…the wood floor here is a creation of mine, I love the shades of lighter and darker wood.  And the driftwood…I found that years ago on the beach, just the perfect size for a baby.  That is a very common question for me where ever I am…can I fit a baby in that?

Noah – 22 days – newborn portrait sessions

Meet Noah…a sweet little man that I recently had the honor to photograph.  He was a wonderful sleeper with two adoring parents.  We had such a nice photo session!  Newborn portrait sessions can actually be a relaxing time for new moms and dads.  Things can get messy…that’s true of course, but recently I have been told again and again how relaxing the session is!  Once mom and dad are comfortable, I take the little bub and then they sit back and enjoy.  And look at the type of sweetness we create then…

(I would like to mention something about the image above, just in case there are photographers reading this who are new to newborn portraits.  This is a composite image.  That means that I took two separate images and photoshopped them together.  This baby is NOT suspended in any way.  The first image, mom was holding the white tie above the give the look of suspending the basket by the white tie, but dad had two hands under the basket.  The second image dad held the basket by both sides so I could get a image of the basket from below with no hands in the way.  Then I used the wonderful tool that is photoshop to make them one image, giving the impression that baby is hanging in a basket.  Please do not ever suspend a baby for a photograph…safety first!)

I love this little concerned look Noah is giving me here.  What a sweetie!

I love these two photos of all the kiddos together.  It isn’t easy to wrangle 4 at these ages…kudos to John and Carrie who do it every day.

Newborn Photography –

Many times people will ask if they need to bring their own props and clothing, and while I encourage my clients to bring anything they would like to a maternity or a newborn photography appointment, I have many many things in the studio for my clients to use as well.  Dresses and wraps for mom, lots and lots of props for babies, and cute little things like this blue little outfit for newborns.

Ack!  Eyes are so difficult to control in the beginning!  Don’t worry Jacob, you are adorable no matter what.

This is one of my new props, and it is quite unique.  It is real bark, from a real tree.  I found it and decided it would make a fabulous prop.  Dried it out, made some repairs, made sure it would be safe and comfortable…and voila!  Add cute baby and you are good to go!

I love this sweet little stretch!  Look at that face…so many times I get the babies into position and then they take over and so something cuter than I could have planned.

Audrey – One Year

I’m sure some of you will recognize this little beauty who came to see me for her one year portraits.  I have photographed Audrey and her big brother Aaron since they were both “womb side”.  What a joy it has been to watch them grow.  When Audrey came in for her one year session, let’s just say, she wasn’t too thrilled with the idea.  Many times, parents will stress during the portrait session, worrying that we aren’t “getting anything good”.  But 99% of the time, that is just not the case.  You see these kiddos like to throw out gems like this first image amid the frowns or tears, and if your timing is right, you capture it!  My clients are often times pleasantly surprised at the results.

One Year Portraits

What fabulous moments can you capture with one year portraits?  Well, often times we capture baby’s just starting to stand up.  Here’s a moment we tried and tried to capture and thankfully we did!  Audrie standing on her own!  Many of my clients also choose to do a “cake smash” at the end of their one year session…sometimes baby looooves the cake, other times not so much.  Either way, it makes for some adorable portraits.

And of course, no baby session would be complete without tears.  HA!  Sort of joking…but it is true.  Tears often fall…let’s face it, their babies!  But oh so precious…big brother comforting little sister.  But what can you do when your comforting fails?  I’m with Aaron here…what are you going to do?

Have you missed some milestones?  No worries!  It’s never too late to capture your little one.   But let get you into the studio before anymore moments slip away.  Contact Kimberly today to schedule your baby’s session.

Colette with Pearl and Vedder – Mommy and Me Session

Get ready for an overshare.  I can’t help myself!!  Check out this adorable Mommy and Me Session.  Colette came in without daddy for this one…not that we don’t adore daddy!  (Don’t worry Gerrit, you are adored!)  But sometimes, it’s precious to capture a mommy with her little ones.  Just to cherish that sweet connection, that bond.  And while we were at it, of course we threw in a few sibling shots and two year birthday shots.  (Remember that whole, “I can’t help myself” dealio?)  How could I resist?  Pearl and Vedder are so adorable!!

Oh…hey!  Did you know that Barefoot Photography is F.I.N.A.L.L.Y on Instagram?  It’s true!  Follow me here.

Oh my squishy butt!  Just look at this chunk!  I think Colette is leaning here a bit, which is understandable, he’s such a big boy!  He was also getting a little sleepy here, which made the snuggles all the sweeter.

My favorite of baby Vedder.  I just love the look in his eyes.  Safe and sound in his mommy’s arms.  Perfection!

Mommy and Me Session

I love all of these photos…but these have to be my favorite!  I asked Pearl how old she was and this was her response.  I love the little thoughtful tongue as she tries to figure out how to get her fingers to do her bidding.  So cute!

Yes she is two years old and just as cute as can be.  Beautiful Pearl!  With her super cute Mickey and Minnie shoes!  I’m not a big shoe fan (obviously) but if you have to wear shoes, I guess they should have Mickey and Minnie on them.

 Wrangling a two year old and trying to keep her curls straight while you put a cute clip in with a crying baby on your lap…all while looking gorgeous yourself.  Ahhh…motherhood!  It is beautiful in all it’s moments…from the snuggles to the struggles.  Fight the good fight mommas!  You are amazing!
