Newborn Photographer Denver CO | Hospital Photo Session

Hello Mamas!
 
I know there are lots of you with due dates coming up and with all that’s going on, hospitals are only allowing 1 family member in the hospital during your stay. Which is a great idea with all the germs going around and you can’t be too careful!
 
But that also means your Birth Photographer isn’t able to come in and capture those first few hours after your baby is born…
 
I saw this circulating on Facebook so I thought I’d share….
 
For all of you Mamas that are unable to have a photographer at your Birth or Fresh 48, here are some helpful hints for you to take great photos on your phone or with your own camera!🥰
 
-Take them during the day when there is plenty of window light.☀️
 
-TURN OFF the hospital lights! Use the window light only, if you can!
 
-Position your baby facing the light coming through the window.
 
-Don’t shoot towards the window. Shoot with the window to your side or to your back, but be careful not to block the light coming through!
 
– Shoot down, from above or the side of the baby.
 
– Get close! Thats where the details are! Fresh skin and tiny fingers and toes are important!
 
-Download the Lightroom App on your phone and edit your photos there! If you are one of my clients & you would like me to edit any photos, I will do so free of charge for you! ❤️
 
Saw this on another photographers page today and thought it was a great idea!
 
 
I wanted to also add:
 
Ask your nurse to swaddle the baby for you. NURSES ARE THE BEST SWADDLERS!

Thornton CO Newborn Photographer | Miss Ror

This little cutie right here… She was a doll to photograph. And her Big Sister Raegan was super duper adorable as well! Here are just a few of my favorite portraits from Miss Rory’s newborn session. I love capturing little ones with their siblings. It’s just precious seeing toddlers with their new baby brothers and sisters. Precious portraits for all parents to be able to look back for years to come.

Easter Bunny Mini Sessions | Denver CO area

We have opened up our March calendar for Easter Bunny Mini Sessions this year for weekday spots as well. For those parents that are concerned about germs or multiple sessions in a day during our normal mini session date on weekends. We are taking ever precaution to make sure every inch of our studio stays clean and germ free. We work with little ones on a regular basis so we keep everything super clean. But we have amped it up now that there is Corona Virus going around. I don’t want parents to miss out on portraits of their little ones or have to stress about their family or little ones coming in contact with those germs. We have been scrubbing down all props and anything being used or coming in contact with hands, before and after each of our sessions.

If you would like to schedule an Easter Mini Sessions with our cute baby bunnies, please contact us this month and we can set up a date and time that works well with your schedule. We have an adorable farmhouse styled set up for this year!

Contact us on our website in the Contact tab…

Newborn Photographer Thornton CO | Baby Daniel

Meet adorable little Mr Daniel.

17 days new.

He didn’t sleep a wink for us during his newborn session 😉 But I’m quick on my feet and was able to snag those quick blinks and make you think he was sleeping. Oh but he was a chubby little cutie with a head full of hair!! Oh and check out those squeezable cheeks too!

The best time to photograph your newborn is 5 to 14 days of age. In this time frame those little ones are sleeping long lengths of time in between feedings and we are able to get a large variety of poses and set ups in during their session time. Contact us today to schedule your upcoming due date. We book months in advance and only take a limited number of sessions each month. Please visit our website for investment pricing and contact us for additional questions.

Newborn Photographer Thornton CO | Miss Lillian

Little Miss Lillian came into our Studio at 10 days of age. She was a precious little peanut! I loved being able to incorporate white and pale pink into her newborn session. So dainty and girly for this little princess. Even her Daddy brought some of his Fire Fighter gear in with him. We love it when Fire Fighters, Police Officers and Military bring in their gear so we can use them as props. I love that added uniqueness we are able to bring to their newborn session. Miss Lillian even had her Aunt in town durning her session, and then her Big Brother and Sister came into town a few days later to meet her and we got to do some more family and sibling portraits with the whole crew 🙂 I just love being able to capture those special memories that these little ones will be able to cherish as they get older. To know that they are loved by so many <3

Valentine’s Day Mini Sessions | Thornton CO Child Photographer

Oh Miss Leila… She’s such a doll! With all those smiles she gave me at her Valentine’s Day Mini Session this month. You would never have guessed that she just mean mugged it through her family portrait session this past fall! But we did capture some beautiful portraits of her, along with her Mommy, Grandma and big brother.

I was so excited to see her cheerful self again. All the smiles, and dancing she gave me. Just like she did for her baby milestone sessions. I photographed her baby portraits just two short years ago. She has been growing like a weed ever since. Easter Mini Sessions are coming soon and I can’t wait…

Newborn Photographer Thornton CO | Wrapped Up

 

Isn’t this little girl just precious?!Thornton CO

Oh how I love the wrapped poses for newborn sessions here in our Thornton CO Studio. The wrap gets babies nice and warm and very sleepy. It mimics being in the womb for those fresh newborns. So when we have a little newborn who isn’t wanting to fall asleep or a little upset, I break out the stretchy wraps and get them nice and cozy. Then before long they are fast asleep. I love how her little toes are just peeking out for you to see. She was just a dream to photograph during her newborn session.

If you have a due date coming up this month, please contact us about scheduling. February is almost full. We photograph newborns between 5 and 14 days of age. The perfect timeframe for newborn photography. We have a few newborn collections available over on our website.

How Family Portraits Boost Your Child’s Self-Esteem | Family Photographer Denver Colorado

One of the hidden but powerful aspects of family photography that moms and most family photographers rarely consider, is how it can help us raise children with stronger confidence in their own worth and abilities. Psychologists and experts have done some work in recent decades exploring this area. But how can family photography, specifically family portraits, help boost a child’s self-esteem?

I think it is really important to show our families as a family unit. It’s helpful for children to see themselves as a valued and important part of their family. When a child sees a family portrait with them included, they say to themselves: ‘This is why I belong here. This is where I come from.”

When It Comes To Having The Greatest Positive Impact For Your Child, Which is Better, Digital Images or Paper Prints?

 

Rather than print and display family photographs, families are increasingly enjoying their images in a digital form. Either a cell phone, a laptop, or simply on social media. But does an image on a computer screen have the same impact for helping families boost a child’s self-esteem? I personally think our family photographs belong displayed up on the walls of our home for everyone to see. It fills my heart with joy just seeing our portraits in giant canvases up on the walls in every room… our portraits in prints displayed on our fridge so I can see them when I’m cooking dinner each night. All our picture frames filled with sweet family members near and far… and those that are sadly not with us anymore. Photographs are very powerful, at any age.

I think placing a our family photo somewhere in home where children can see them every day without having to turn on a device or click around on a computer to find it really hits home for that child and gives them a sense of reassurance and comfort. They have a certainty about them and a protecting quality that nurtures a child. It lets them know where they are in this world and that they are loved and cared for deeply.

There is something very powerful in touching your fingers to an actual print. Touching the photograph where a face is smiling… it is the same thing as touching a book when you read it. There’s a lot of stimulation of the brain when you have that sensory experience. That is a bit lost in the move to digital these days. You are touching a keyboard, mouse or a touchscreen but you are not touching the image.

Experts recommend having photographs of your child with your family placed in their bedroom so it can be one of the last things they see before they fall asleep and the first thing they may see when they wake up the next morning.

“It says we love you and care about you. You’re important.”

Have you been wanting to update your family portraits? I would love to talk to you about our family sessions and products we offer, to display your family portraits on your walls in your home. Please contact us with any questions you may have or we can set up a time for us to meet here in our Thornton Studio to chat about family photos.

The H Family | Denver CO Family Photographer

Oh these little ones have grown up so much over the past couple years! Miss Gwen is such an awesome Big Sister and it seems like it was just yesterday that I photographed little Creed’s newborn and 12 month portraits. I just love seeing all our families come back each year to update their family and children’s portraits. They grow up so fast! My little guy is already 11 years old and sometimes it’s hard to believe he was this size… So I’m thankful to have our framed portraits and canvas hung up around our house. Even those photo albums I can look through whenever I want. If you haven’t updated your family portraits in a few years, please contact us today for more information. We love to get out in the Denver Colorado area for our family portraits sessions. There are so many lovely locations around here. We met up at Red Rocks for the H Family.

The C Family | Morrison CO Family Photography

It’s such a great time when my lovely clients come back throughout the year for sessions for their children. We have some pretty fun themed mini sessions for all the little ones each month. So I get to see Christopher and Matthew throughout the year and it’s always a blast! But it’s even more fun when we get Mom and Dad in on the fun, for a Family Portraits session. It was a fun time with the C Family over the fall. Red Rocks, Morrison Colorado is such a gorgeous location we like to use. Perfect for any season. Even in the cold winter months.

 


Denver Birth Photographer | Denver CO Birth Photography

Hello expecting Moms due in 2020… are you interested in a Birth Photographer? We offer Birth Photography and Fresh 48 Sessions in the Denver Colorado area. We are also available for Birth Photography outside of the Denver area as well. For those hospital and in home births. I would love to schedule a consult with you, so you know just what is captured in Birth Photography as well as our Fresh 48 Sessions (just after baby is born), get to met your photographer and ask all those questions you may have been thinking about.  These moments are priceless!

Did you know that Brandy Caruso Photography offers payment plans? We also offer a discount on our in Studio Newborn Sessions, when you bundle a Birth Story and a Newborn Session or Belly to Baby Session.

I would like to tell you the benefits of a birth photographer… I am here to capture your special moment with ease and no stress added. Your entire birth happens so fast, that it’s easy to start wondering which moments happened and in what order. Or even to completely forget that those moments even happened! I capture the moment that your doctor holds up your baby for you to see for the first time! Your spouse/mom or family standing over your sweet new addition in just absolute awe. I am there to capture the measurements, the first cry, the cute little footprints. The first time you feed your baby and maybe even the first time the nurses wash your baby. Those exciting moments where big brother/sister meet that sweet baby, and capturing those huge smiles from the little ones and you as parents. I am here to support your family and preserve these moments for you. It is a wonderful and beautiful journey.


Snow Family Portrait Sessions | Denver Thornton CO Family Photography

Well you never know how the weather will be here in Colorado. It seems to change from one minute to the next. I’ve also noticed that it can be one season in Denver and then you drive to another city and you will be in another season. So pretty much have to plan for every season all year long. We planned this sweet family’s portrait session around Dad being in town from work trips,  and it just decided that it was going to snow that afternoon for us. It definitely was a cold day, and we had flurries the whole session. I’m thankful that the snow didn’t pick up to blizzard status until the very end 🙂 I love the color scheme that Mom chose for her family. Perfect fall colors!

If you are interested in braving the cold for a snow family session this year, please contact us today, and we can put you on our snow waiting list. We would love for you to join the fun with us!

Winter Portraits | Thornton Colorado Baby Photographer

Is this winter backdrop not the cutest? And well, Xavier is even cuter! I love the snow and pines painted on the backdrop, and the added twinkle lights is just an extra added touch.

The perfect Winter set up. I think these would make an adorable Mini Session. What do you say we offer these for the little ones here in the Denver area? Our snow sled is great for all the kids to sit on.

I can’t believe Xavier is already a year old! And starting to walk too. Those babies grow up way too fast!

If you have a little one coming up on 4 months, 8 months or 12 months old, we would love to talk to you about our Milestone Sessions. Available for in our Thornton Studio or outdoors in the Denver Colorado area.

Gracie May 4 Month Old | Denver CO Baby Photographer

Yes we have two little Baby Grace’s that are the same age, that come to visit us in our Thornton Colorado Studio… how lucky are we?!

Miss Gracie May is already 4 month old too! Her hair is starting to become curly and check out her beautiful blue eyes! She’s just so beautiful! Nothing but smiles and some drool, during her 4 month Milestone Session. I can’t wait to see her back in our Studio for her 8 month Milestone Session. But until then… here are just a couple of my favorite portraits from her recent session…

Villa Parker Colorado Wedding Photography

I don’t get a chance to post all of our weddings here on the Blog. Seems like we are always busy photographing sessions and never have enough time to share those beautiful portraits online with everyone. I wanted to share one of our recent Grooms though. I think he should be a model! He was so natural in front of the camera for sure. What do you think?

We do have availability on our Calendar for 2020 wedding dates, so contact us today before your wedding date becomes booked up. We are available for the Denver Colorado area, as well as for travel. We love to fly to North Carolina and Georgia for southern weddings. Contact us at brandycaruso@yahoo.com for more information.
