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!

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.

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.

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.

Such a fun weekend full of Valentine’s Mini Sessions. We had two adorable Valentine’s Day backdrop set ups for all the little ones that came in. Miss Gracie is just too cute isn’t she!?

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.

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.


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.
