A few weeks ago I shot this adorable family session with a 2 week old newborn baby girl. I had such a lovely time with this family! I love this session because I feel like this is the type of newborn session I love to photograph – it’s a lifestyle oriented session shot in the comfort of their own home. I also love that I get to photograph not just the newborn but big sister in her own elements as well! I love documenting all the normal but precious moments – from the dad swaddling the baby to the big sister checking out her baby sis. I love this session and I’m excited to share with you some of my favorite images.
Sisters!! So adorable!
And she smiled!
I love these silly, playful moments!
I really wanted to take a picture of the big sister kissing the baby sis. But of course it’s hard to ask a toddler to do exactly what you want her to do! So we (her parents and I) decided to coax her with yogurt drops, her favorite snack!
We then moved her on to the couch.
And finally she kissed her baby sis!! Luckily I was fast enough to capture this moment!
Toward the end of the session, the baby woke up and I was able to get a few shots of her with her eyes opened. She got gorgeous eyes!
And that’s a wrap!! :)
Pauline and Eddie are both the most kind loving people you will ever meet. They exude joy and a positive energy that is absolutely contagious. I’m so so happy that they found each other because they are seriously a perfect match! They got married at the most picturesque venue ever (Mission Ranch Hotel at Carmel) with the cutest wooly creatures in the background (which I was totally obsessed with). The day started off with a little bit of rain but as the ceremony starts, the clouds parted and sun broke out! It was truly an amazing day.
It was such an amazing day! Congrats again to Pauline and Eddie!
Kelwyn is absolutely pro at modeling with the watch.
The beautiful historic wedding venue – Castle Green.
Such a dreamy gorgeous bouquet.
This cake is pretty much perfection.
Katharine and Kelwyn, you two are awesome! You guys are totally the perfect match and we are so happy for you. Congrats again!
Hi everyone! As you know, I’ve been on maternity leave and adjusting to being a mom of 2 little ones. Things have been crazy and chaotic for us and now I can finally make this announcement – Team Orange Turtle have officially relocated to Northern California (SF/bay area)! Although I really miss San Diego, I am excited for the new journey ahead.
And because a blog post is better with a picture, here’s a photo of my girl from a couple a months ago! Happy Spring, everyone!
