A few weeks back I blogged the first half of this newborn session for you to feast your eyes on. There were so many great photos from it that I ended up splitting it into two parts. So here is part 2! If you want to read up, and see, Part 1 you can find it here.

What an honor it was to be chosen as their Livermore Newborn Photographer for their first little one! We did their session in a local studio space that’s full of natural light. Their session made me fall in love with being a studio newborn photographer, even though I always said i’d never shoot in the studio.

The thing about this studio is that it isn’t just a Studio, it’s so much more! The different backdrops of the space provided a great variety of images- from the white cinderblock wall, to the super modern natural wood rolling backdrop. Adding in the available plants there was also so fun and helped to add a pop of color! Some of my favorite images of all of them as a family though are of them in the egg chair, they look so cozy and even commented on how they could just cozy up for a nap right there. 

Something that I really love that this is a space I can offer clients who want a newborn session that’s cozy and fun, but that isn’t in their homes. I totally get that sometimes your home might not have the best lighting, or you don’t want to have to worry about cleaning up (although don’t ever worry about cleaning up your home for me!! I have a littles of my own!).

This session made me so excited to photograph more newborn, and other sessions, at this space and in client’s homes. It was such a dream to shoot there, especially for a film photographer! In fact, the film images I shot came out so beautiful that I didn’t even look through my digital images from this session. That’s right- feast your eyes on 100% film images. A special thanks to Photovision for always developing and scanning my film to perfection. And thanks to Creative Space Studios for being the perfect spot for this session!
