This newborn session is what dreams are made of, end of story. A long long time ago Janea had told me about her dream and vision for Creative Space Studios, and then it became a reality! I’ve been to the space several times for Rising Tide Society meetings and other fun events that Janea has put on, and I’ve been dreaming of when I would finally rent it out and do a session there!

I finally decided to book the space last December and then do a model call for newborn photos there. I’ve been wanting to offer an option to my clients for newborn sessions if they don’t want to do them in their homes. So Creative Space Studios seemed like a perfect in-between. I love the decor they have, it’s not too “studio like” and feels like home, but it also has AMAZING lighting! I’m planning on writing another blog post about my experience in using the space, but for now i’ll tell you more about how much I loved being this family’s Dublin CA Newborn Photographer.

I wanted to find the perfect model, and sweet little Hayden was just that! Her mama is an amazing photographer a few cities over, so it was extra special to be able to photograph her with her hubby and new little girl. Some of my favorite images from the session are of Hayden in the pink chair- so perfectly girly! And her in the little moses basket that was just her size.

Corinna chose to do a little wardrobe swap and both dresses were from Lulu’s, and her husband, Nick, complimented her dress choices with her perfectly neutral shirts. They were both so sweet and were already rocking the whole new parent thing just 14 days into it. I literally don’t think I heard Hayden cry at all, so clearly they know just what to do! 

I ended up with so many amazing photos from this session that this is actually part 1. Stay tuned and check back for part 2 with more details from this darling bay area newborn session and to see more beautiful images!
