Baby Olivia’s first birthday and cake smash studio session

Olivia was an absolute doll for her session and just cute as can be. She was all smiles and curiosity for her session. I just absolutely adore everything about her. She was also quite the fan of my knit dollies from SweetiePea Boutique.

This beautiful heirloom set is from the amazing Mia Joy Studio.

Just look at her cheeky little expression! Olivia is just as sweet as her big brother and it’s so hard to believe that I have been able to watch both of them grow from newborns to toddlers.

Pelia’s First Birthday Cake Smash Studio Session

I always look forward to working with Pelia. She is just the happiest little girl ever and so easy to work with. I love that not only is she too cute but her mama always has the cutest dresses for her to wear. Just look at this adorable grin.

One thing I also love about this baby planner family is that mom and dad always join in for a photo. It’s so important to capture these moments together.

Happy Birthday Pia! You are too wonderful for words.

Cute little cake toes. I find it so adorable that one year olds incorporate every part of themselves into cake smashing.


While little Pelia may be a baby planner graduate I am so thrilled that her family plans to keep returning. I am so looking forward to watching this girl grow.

Baby Kingston Newborn Photography Sacramento Studio Session

I was so excited to photography handsome little Kingston. Having photographed his big sister just 2 years prior I knew he’d be adorable. Just like his sister he spent some of his time awake but was the perfect gentleman for his session. Just look at his chunk, could he be any cuter?

When photographing an under 2 sibling with a newborn, sometimes bucket poses are the best. Isn’t big sis Ava just so gorgeous? I cannot believe I took her newborn photos just 2 years before.

Rylee’s newborn photography Sacramento studio session.

Baby Rylee didn’t want to sleep initially for her session but when she did she slept like a champ. I love working with older newborns because they are usually so chubby but still have the beautiful newness. Older newborns also tend to give amazing eye contact when awake and content.

As you may have guessed already, two of my favorite vendors are Mia Joy Studio and Vanilla Lullaby. Creators of this gorgeous vintage romper and tieback.

One thing I loved most about little Rylee was her amazing hair. As you can imagine I see a lot of adorable bald newborns so it is a delight when they come in with a beautiful head of hair like hers.

Lucy’s Birthday and Cake Smash Session

Happy Birthday Lucy! I just love when my little newborn clients return for milestone sessions. Especially birthday sessions. It’s so wonderful to have the opportunity to see how big they have gotten and what their personalities are like. Full disclosure though, Miss Lucy was not a fan of me, or at least not my camera. All smiles and cheer until I brought the camera out and then it was all tears. In the end I think we managed to capture a few cute ones.

I just adore this antique romper from Mia Joy Studio. Did you know that I provide not only outfits and props for my newborns but also my milestone clients?
