Here we go with part two of this darling newborn photo session. A few weeks ago I posted part one, and you can view it right here if you feel so obliged. I really loved this session so much and was so excited to be able to see this family again and take newborn photos in their home. I have to pinch myself often to remind myself that i’m living my dream as a Bay Area newborn photographer. 

One of the sweetest parts of this session was taking some photos in the nursery that Brittany had decorated for baby Blake. She decorated it so perfectly, with a black iron crib, and lots of little details. I loved the sunshine that she painted on one wall and the sweet gold and yellow accents that were sprinkled throughout. I love looking at baby nurseries! Especially since I’ve actually never gotten the opportunity myself to decorate a nursery. The homes we’ve lived in have just never had a spare room just for a baby. So it’s always fun to see ideas, what people do, and how they get creative with their baby nurseries.

My absolute favorite image from this newborn session is the one of little baby Blake looking up at her mama. You’ll see it a couple photos down, it’s in black-and-white. I love her sweet little face and wide eyes as she recognizes her mama’s voice who was standing above her and soothing her. These really are the moments that remind me so much of why I will do what I do. It brings me so much joy to capture these sweet memories for families.
