I had An absolutely wonderful time taking newborn portraits of this sweet baby boy named Lukas. Here is a look at his set of newborn pictures that I captured in my Citrus Heights baby portrait studio.
I photographed Lukas’ moms’ wedding back in 2015, and it is so exciting to see their family grow! When Lukas’ moms emailed me asking to book a newborn session I was so happy to hear that they were expecting a baby and I instantly became excited to photograph them again because I had THE BEST time at their wedding. I frequently mention that particular wedding as being one of my favorite jobs ever because these two ladies are so much fun to be around, and their wedding day was full of so much love, laughter, and an epic game of flip cup.
Everyone is absolutely head over heels in love with this darling baby boy. He has a full head of gorgeous dark hair and is oh so snuggly. I hear that this little guy is not letting his moms get a whole lot of sleep, but he was an absolutely amazing model during his newborn portrait session and did every pose I asked him to do.
During my initial email consultation for every newborn client, I always ask if my clients have any specific themes or ideas for poses that they are interested in me putting together for them. Lukas’ moms actually waited to find out if he was a boy or girl, which made it a bit of a challenge to prep, so I knew I was going to keep things simple. I am so impressed with their self restraint and patience, because I know that when I was pregnant I COULDN’T wait to find out my baby’s sex, but these two were happy for it to be a surprise. Since these moms had no specific requests for their newborn session, I used mostly neutral colors, which are always my go to for boys.
As a newborn photographer, One of my most favorite parts of my job is shopping for props for my sessions. I cannot even begin to tell you how much fun it is sorting through adorable baby clothes and all the sweet props that vendors sell! I love teddy bears, and when I recently found this darling little bear outfit, I couldn’t wait to dress a baby up in it. Lukas’ moms love the Chicago bears, so they too loved the outfit, and I am absolutely giddy at how precious those shots came together. I also pulled out some blue and orange fabrics so I could style Lukas after his moms’ favorite team, which definitely brought a smile to their faces.
Just wanted to say thanks again to Lukas’ family for choosing me as their Sacramento newborn photographer.
It was an absolute delight to be able to document this special time for you guys, and I look forward to watching your darling little one grow and being there to document all the milestones for you! ❤
