When my old friend Ms. Goldfarb asked me to take Senior Portraits for her youngest daughter I couldn’t believe it! I first met the Goldfarb girls when they were just 3 & 5 years old. About the same age as my own daughters are now. And now her youngest is actually GRADUATING from High School!!!
Wow. Just WOW!
When they asked me to do some family portraits, because they hadn’t had any done in a long time, I was more than trilled. I got to spend a few hours with this SUPER FUN family, and take some photos that they’ll treasure for years to come. Lucky ME!!!
Enjoy your sneak peek, Goldfarbs. There’s many more to come in your actual gallery. It was such a blast photographing each one of you, and especially your group shots. What a gorgeous, happy, fun & loving family.
I’m so pleased to share with you photos of these two ADORABLE bundles of joy for the W family, in Scottsdale.
Oh my! what beautiful babies they are… if you’re anything like me when it comes to newborns, you’ll just be captivated by each and every detail of these two gorgeous boys.
Enjoy your sneak peek, Mom and Dad. I’ll have a bunch more photos for you to see soon in your full gallery.
Little Miss C has gotten so big and has so much personality, since I last saw her at her newborn session.
She was FULL of spunk and happy smiles… just rolling around on the floor, looking at everything, and overall having a good ole time.
What a fun little girl to hang out with.
Enjoy your sneak peek C family! I so enjoyed our time together… and I’m super happy with the photos. That sure is a happy girl you guys have there.
Look Ma, two teeth!!!
Oh-my-goodness! What a sweet bundle of joy little M was.
So soft and delicate, and PERFECT in every way.
I could just get lost in newborn photos… just sayin’.
heart : heart : heart newborn babies!!!
The C-H family are members of my triplet/quad family group, and I’ve known them since before their triplet boys were born. They’re now eight months old, so we all thought it was about time I did a family session with them. The weather was perfect last weekend, so they packed up everyone in between naps and we headed over to the park.
And, can I just say how much I enjoyed photographing them? Not only are they SUPER nice and F-U-N!!! But each and every one of them have these incredible eyes!
We were supposed to be done shooting within an hour or so, but I couldn’t help myself and just kept snapping away, LOL.
And honestly, they were all game for it. And as you can see we got some absolutely incredible family portraits… which isn’t always easy with triplets… let alone with a few older kids to boot.
Thanks again Mom and Dad! I really, really, really enjoyed our time together.
Hope you enjoy your photos as much as I do. And I have to tell you, my girls were NEVER as cooperative as your three boys were. The shot of them all together actually had all three of them looking in the same direction AND smiling at the same time! UNHEARD OF!!! And so darn cute it makes me giggle every time I look at it.
And can you stand how cute big brother is???
Oh, and did I mention the proud big sister? She was suuuuuch a help to Mom and Dad (and to me too) during our shoot, helping distract and entertain her little brothers. You can clearly see the connection and love she has for all of them… and what a gorgeous girl.
The M family are so happy to welcome home their two gorgeous twin baby girls, and I can certainly understand why. These two little angels were just so precious. I could have held them all day long!
They were just so tiny and delicate. It’s so hard to remember that my own baby girls were even smaller than these little angels when they were born. Wow, time flies! Capture the moments while you can, they certainly don’t last long, LOL.
Enjoy your sneak peek M family! I sure enjoyed photographing your newest additions to your lovely family!
Here’s an adorable set of twin boys I had the pleasure of photographing last week. How cute are they??? What a gorgeous family, and big brother was sooooo happy to show off his two little brothers.
Enjoy your sneak peek, K family, and thanks again!!!
The other day we made an excursion to the Arizona Desert Botanical Garden to see their Monarch Butterfly exhibit. Of course I brought along my camera, and took these pictures just for fun. I love macro photography, and seldom get a chance to really play with it, so this was fun for me. Plus, my girls ADORE butterflies… so they loved seeing the close up photos too.
I posted this photo as part of a series I took of my girls in the park a while ago, and thought I’d enter it into the iHeartFaces Photo Challenge | A Touch of Sun.
I love this photo… just wish my third daughter had been in a pleasant enough mood to join in, LOL. Oh well… one of the downsides of having triplets is trying to get a photo where all three are in a good mood at the same time. Almost N-E-V-E-R happens!!!
Anyway, this photo was taken in the late afternoon when the sun was in its perfect warm-glow phase. It just brings out such richness in the colors, and the light is lucious.
Little Miss C was such a joy to photograph recently at her home in Paradise Valley, AZ. Taking photos of Phoenix area newborn babies is truly one of my most favorite pleasures in life, and this little darling was no different.
Ohhhh the sweetness of her tiny toes, squishy cheeks and cuddly arms. If I could photograph phoenix and scottsdale area newborn infant babies all day long, I certainly would!
When photographing newborn babies, it’s important to follow my newborn tips, as closely as possible.
The home should be nice and warm (in this case we shot outside on their patio during the summer… yep, nice and warm, LOL), the baby should be well fed and kept awake for a few hours, if possible, before I get there… and try to take off his or her clothing, or at the very least loosen for about a half and hour before I arrive with my photography equipment, so that there won’t be any marks on the baby from their clothing.
It also helps to set back and let me do my job. If the mom especially gets too close during the newborn photo session, the baby can smell her, and it keeps her more alert than if you take a step back.
I have triplets, so I have a lot of newborn baby experience, plus I specialize in photography of Phoenix newborns, so I have even more newborn infant baby experience than most baby photographers… trust me, I know how to handle a baby, and to get them in that cozy, comfy newborn state that’s perfect for posing them for their first infant photography session. And you’ll love the results, especially in your heirloom baby album, or gorgeous wall canvas with your baby’s first portrait on it. It will be something to treasure for years, and years to come.
And Baby C’s parents did just that. It makes for the most precious sleepy baby poses, keeps the pace going fast during your newborn shoot, and helps reduce stress for the baby, the parents and the photographer. 🙂
Thanks again, Dr. and Dr. C. It was wonderful taking C’s first newborn baby photographs! Can’t wait to do her six month and one-year old portraits as well.
