Newborn photography is a tough gig for shop-a-holics. We need ALL the colors! And all the props… My current obsession is wool curls. I’m a sucker for textures with babies, and these are so soft and lovely! I love the way the light hits them, and how the dyeing process creates such beautiful variations of color. I’ve been hand dyeing lots of them, but so far the purple is definitely my favorite.
Thankfully I’m not too shabby at fiber art. And I found a super sweet farmer in Lebanon, Oregon that I’ve been loading up on wool from. LOTS more colors to come!
Side Note: bonus to having the downtown anchorage studio space – LOTS more room for props! Although I think Shalem is going to have a panic attack if I bring in too much more… we are working on building out some storage space, but at the moment it kind of looks like a second hand store in here. Sorry guys!
Baby Emica had the most lovely skin tone – and all that dark hair! Purple was the perfect compliment to her dark features. Baby girl was a big fan of those wool curls and snuggled right in. I was able to get lovely macro images of all her precious little features – eyelashes, tiny fingers and toes and those sweet little baby lips!
She was a sweet, tiny little thing and she was a dream to photograph! So beautiful!

I have been bestie’s with baby Logan’s auntie for ages. She is my person I call when I need someone to set me straight – or if I have a random opening in my schedule for a drink. She’s there.
So when Logan’s mom let me know the newborn photographer she used with her girls had stopped photographing babes, I was super excited to be able to create images of her newest baby boy!
And isn’t he just adorable?! He truly looks like a baby doll – i mean, those perfect little features! So precious!
Baby Logan gave me a run for my money. He was definitely not the sleepiest of babies. Sometimes littles one just have their own plans for their day. I am frequently asked the question by clients – what happens if my baby won’t sleep!? Well, I promise, even if your baby wants to stay awake, I will still be able to create beautiful photographs with you! You would never know that from our 3 hours session Logan slept for MAYBE 20 minutes. Because truly – that’s all I need!
I love all the blues we pulled into his session – that fluffy little nest kind of makes me want to curl up and take a nap too.
And since Grandma came along to hang out and help with his big sisters – we had to pull her in for a shot too!
Enjoy! And try not to catch baby fever looking at these… I dare you!

What a sweet, sweet little baby girl! Baby Tirzah was one of the best sleepers I’ve had in my studio to photograph – and considering she was already over a month old when she came to me – it was an absolute dream!
I had the pleasure of being the second shooter photographing her parents wedding here in Anchorage, several years ago – and it was SUCH a pleasure to reconnect with them and have the opportunity to photograph their family again – now with all 3 of their little ones!
They are absolutely the sweetest family – and the boys are just adorable with their little sis!
I hope you enjoy how delicious this little baby girl is!
