Baby I | Lifestyle Newborn Photos in Bend, Oregon

I have been so behind in blogging and thought to myself, what better way to get back on the train then to share this sweet family? They welcomed their second baby, a sweet little girl into their home just this past November. How awesome is it that grandma was able to visit and get in on some photos? 

Baby Ines' mom is a fabulous blogger who shares some amazing recipes. You can check out her stuff here: http://www.accordingtoelle.com. Enjoy!

 

Newborn Session in Bend, OR | Baby Reece

I typically recommend clients to contact me as soon as they know they want to schedule a session with me since I tend to book out in advance. Reece's mama contacted me when he was already a few days old but luckily, I happened to have an opening that very weekend! I knew as soon as Jennifer and I connected about a newborn session for her new baby boy Reece that I would fall in love with her session. You see, Jennifer is a former KTVZ-News Channel 21 news reporter and producer here where I live in Bend, Oregon. She has such style and grace-I was so excited to work with her! 

I arrived at the house to Jennifer's mom welcoming me in while Jennifer was finishing getting ready. I use this time to look for where the light is falling and where the best natural light is. We decided the master bedroom had the best light and got started in there. I brought with me a couple neutral props which mama and I had emailed about; a basket, a simple wrap/swaddle and a couple of cute bonnets. Of course, we had to get some shots in Reece's adorable nursery and it's a must to get a few breastfeeding photos-it's something I wish I had. 

Little Reece was SO good to me. He needed just a little bit of persuading but quickly zonked out for a good chunk of time and we got so many great images!

Here are some of my favorites from this lovely session:

 

G Family | Bend, Oregon Photographer

Wow you guys, I'm really sucking at this blogging thing. Maybe one day I'll be on top of it. Let's face it, with three young boys running amuck there's not much time for the "extras" in this business. 

Now, for the G family. I loved everything about this session from the get go-except for me getting my car stuck in the snow on their street. Thankfully my husband wasn't too far away and I was able to ask him to help dig me out! 
K is the sweetest person you'll ever meet. Her husband was days away from leaving to move to Japan (how cool, right?) and she was going to be staying behind to take care of their little girl, manage her business and tie up lose ends here in Bend before joining him in Japan. She's a rockstar for sure-I admire women like her. 

Their house was absolutely perfect-a photographer's dream and I may have squealed a little inside when I walked in. Little Miss. A was the cutest and completely took to me, no shyness whatsoever and I loved being able to include the dogs, they're family too, right?

I like my family sessions to be as relaxed as possible and though I have a mental checklist of shots I want to capture, I generally go with the flow. I was so excited mom and dad were open to getting Miss A in that gorgeous farmhouse sink for a little bubble bath session toward the end. Dad picked that sink out when they bought the house and he is very proud of it! I just love the simplicity. 

Thanks G family for a super fun morning together! They are now reunited in Japan-best of luck to you guys there! I travel, just putting that out there ;)
