Sari Newborn Session – Newborn Photographer Bucks County PA | Doylestown PA Photographer

I always love when I have a personal connection with my clients. This wonderful family has an older son who goes to school with my son.  The mom didn’t realize that I was a newborn photographer until she came across my name on the school’s Facebook page. She tracked me down and hoped that I could schedule a newborn session for her daughter when she was born. I was afraid that I couldn’t commit to fitting in her newborn session due to the fact that I was having surgery and didn’t know if I would be recovered in enough time to do her session. Fortunately, everything worked out and I was able to photograph this beautiful baby girl and her wonderful family.

Here’s a sneak peek into my latest Newborn Session.

Sari Newborn Session

I always love when clients bring personal items to use in my newborn sessions. Especially if it has special meaning to them. Since these are photographs that I want them to cherish forever, having special items in their photos makes them just that more precious.  My clients wanted to highlight their Indian culture in the photos, so they brought along some special saris. Each sari that she picked to bring to the session had special significance to her because they were all worn by her mother on memorable occasions – her mother’s engagement, her wedding, one she remembered her mother wearing when she was a child, etc.

I was more than happy to incorporate them into my set-ups and give my clients some very special photos. She was hoping to get one of them in a photo with her daughter and I thought why not use all of them! They were all so beautiful with their vibrant colors and patterns that I decided to surround the baby with them as she soundly slept in my wooden bowl.

I decided to choose the blue sari to wrap her in while she slept. How gorgeous does the deep blue look against her gorgeous skin!SugaShoc Photography Newborn Photography Bucks County PA Doylestown PA Newborn Photographer Sari Newborn Session baby sleeping in blue and gold Indian sari

Getting a little girlie

Next, I wanted to use some girlie colors and props. The little tiara looked adorable on the head of this sleeping princess. She also looked beautiful wrapped in pink, sleeping in my wooden bucket. Pink is definitely her color and I loved the little face she made while sleeping.

Neutral colors are always a favorite of mine. I loved the contrast of the different shades of cream against her gorgeous head of dark hair. My favorite little white bed was perfect for placing her in. Using different layers of white blankets and wraps, we finished her look off with one of my white, floral headbands.  SugaShoc Photography Newborn Photography Bucks County PA Doylestown PA Newborn Photographer Sari Newborn Session baby sleeping in wooden white bed wrapped in white wrap with lace trim and wearing white floral headband

Finally we placed her in my antiqued, metal bucket with my knit hat with bear ears. She looked like a little, hibernating bear! For a pop of color, I placed a watering can filled with fresh purple tulips. I think fresh flowers make the perfect finishing touch. For posing and prop ideas, check out my Pinterest Page.

Family Love

Photos with siblings and parents are some of my favorite poses. It’s so wonderful to see the love among family members and see how their new addition brings new joy. Big brother was so happy to pose with his new little sister. Just look at how big his smile is as he holds her. I love when he leaned down and gave her a little kiss on her head. He’ll be a fantastic big brother to her.

Parent poses are so precious. My client looked so perfect holding her little girl and I loved the smile on baby’s face! Getting a newborn smile does not happen often, so it’s always exciting when I’m able to capture one.  This family was so filled with love and it was my honor to be their newborn photographer. SugaShoc Photography Newborn Photography Bucks County PA Doylestown PA Newborn Photographer Sari Newborn Session baby sleeping wrapped in gray with gray headband held by mom with baby smiling

Rainbow Newborn Session – Newborn Photographer Bucks County PA | Doylestown PA Photographer

Having a baby is a joyous and sunny time in a family’s life.  Unfortunately, sometimes life brings a storm and there is a tragic loss of these new little souls. Like the miracle of a rainbow after a storm, many mothers refer to babies born after loss as their rainbow babies. The rainbow doesn’t take away the storm, nor does the arrival of a new baby erase the tragedy of previous loss, but gives families hope of what’s to come. Having a Rainbow Newborn Session with their new baby can be a wonderful way to celebrate their newest addition, while remembering what made this birth so special.

Here’s a sneak peek into my latest Rainbow Newborn Session.

After the storm – Rainbow Newborn Session Bucks County PA | Doylestown PA Newborn Photographer

My client had the tremendous loss of losing both her twin newborn sons – one at a few days old and the other at a month old.  I could only imagine the pain and sadness this must have caused her and her family.  Joyfully, she became pregnant with her rainbow baby, a beautiful baby girl.  I had the honor of photographing this Rainbow Newborn Session with this amazing and brave family. When she came for her newborn session and told me their story, I decided I had to gift them something because their story touched me so much. I decided to gift them an extra long session to give them as many photos as I could, to capture their new little love and their beautiful family.

They wanted to remember their two sons that they lost and incorporate them into these special photos with their daughter Emerson.  I decided to pose her in my antique, white bed and have her hold two little, blue hearts representing her two brothers. How beautiful does she look in white, like a little sleeping angel hugging those two sweet souls. I love that I was able to give them such meaningful photos after their loss.

Beautiful Rainbow

Emerson was a great baby to photograph. She was not a great sleeper, but we managed to do everything her mama dreamed of.  I always like to consult with my clients about colors for their session, and where they would like finished photos hung in their home, so I can coordinate with the outfits and props that I use. My clients wanted to use a lot of white in her set-ups, so I happily obliged. Emerson looked so cute in my white, knit hat with the lace trim from Pooks & LuLu.  I love the little face she made while she slept. I also have an extensive collection of white headbands, which I used in her photos. Nothing’s sweeter than a little newborn baby wearing just a headband.

The weather was nice, so we were able to do some set-ups outside. I loved using my antique wooden bucket as a prop. Layering it with many white blankets added such wonderful texture to the photos. She looked so precious sleeping in the rustic bucket surrounded by all the rocks. I love when I’m able to do something different with my set-ups and it’s even better when my clients love the resulting photos. For other posing and prop ideas, please check out my Newborn Gallery.

Together as a Family

Family photos with their little one was so important to mom so we did a lot of them. These felt even more special because of everything this family has been through. I love posing families skin on skin. These’s something about the newness of those tiny babies against the warm skin of their parents that always makes for a beautiful photo.

This pose with the dad was a significant photo. After the loss of his sons, he had their names tattooed on the inside of his arm, along with a hand and foot print. Having him pose with his new baby girl on his arm while showing off his memorial tattoo was an emotional photo. It’s one I know that they will cherish. This was such a special Rainbow Newborn Session for me. My wish is that my clients know how much I care, in the beautiful photos in their gallery. I hope that they show the love they have for their little girl and their two little loves who will always be part of their family.

Floral Boudoir Session – Bucks County Boudoir Photographer | Doylestown Boudoir Photographer

I love to get new props or backdrops for my studio. As a Bucks County Boudoir Photographer, I love creating new looks for my clients. I purchased this new floral backdrop and I have to say that I am in LOVE with it.  It gives such beautiful depth and interest to my photos.  I couldn’t wait to try it out for my next boudoir session! I was so happy that my client who got to use it first also loved it. Here’s a sneak peek into her Floral Boudoir Session.

Floral Boudoir Session – Bucks County Boudoir Photographer

My client was curvy, gorgeous, and excited about her boudoir session. We started with our glam hair and make-up professional pampering her to make her look and feel beautiful.  Once she was dolled up, it was time for the fun to begin. I always make sure that my clients feel a level of comfort and trust with me as I pose and photograph them.  It is so important that they to know that I am there to make sure they feel sexy and my goal is to give them photographs that they absolutely love! Most of my clients are always shocked when they receive their images. They can’t believe it is them!

I was so excited to use the new fabulous floral backdrop.  We played off the reds in the floral design by dressing her in a sexy, deep burgundy teddy she brought. Just look how beautiful she is posed against the large floral print. I couldn’t be happier with the resulting photo.

Indoor Studio

Next we decided to try some great poses against my dark walls.  My client brought along a great leather jacket, which I love using for boudoir shoots. Nothing is sexier than wearing an open leather jacket and a sultry pair of lace underwear. Doesn’t she look amazing!

Then, I put her in one of my gold tulle dresses and draped it around her. I thought it made her look like a goddess. For ideas of what clothes to bring for your session, take a look at my Bourdoir Pinterest Page.

She brought a great lace body suit that showed off all her gorgeous curves. My love for black lace knows no bounds so I was so happy when she brought this piece of lingerie.

Lastly, we moved up to my natural light studio. I love playing with the light that comes into the room as it shines so beautifully on my clients.  I took some photos shooting through the crystal chandelier to give the photos a voyeuristic feel. We also did some sexy poses of her on the bed.  I love the contrast of her dark lingerie against the white sheets.  For other great posing ideas from my other Boudoir photo shoots, take a look at my Boudoir page.

Finally, I can’t have a boudoir session without a booty shot. I love how this pose came out with her kneeling on my couch in front of the window. What made it even sexier was having it in black-and-white.  There is nothing more rewarding about being a Boudoir Photographer than hearing how happy my clients are with their finished photos….. A fun Boudoir Photography Session can be a great way to bring out that inner vixen and have a fabulous time pampering yourself.

Fitness Boudoir Session – Bucks County Boudoir Photographer | Doylestown Boudoir Photographer

When you work hard at keeping your body in shape, you want to show it off. There’s no better and sexier way to do this than a Fitness Boudoir Session. As a Bucks County Boudoir Photographer, I know how hard it is to work out, eat well, and to love your body. I see it all the time. I have trouble eating well and sometimes, I look in the mirror and wish I had done that extra run, that extra squat, or skipped that late night chocolate snack. But when you work so hard as a fitness competitor like my client here, it is so important to show off all your hard work and I am so happy I was able to give her beautiful photos so she can remember all the hard work she put in.

Fitness Boudoir Session – Bucks County Boudoir Photographer

My client is a fitness weight training competitor. She booked a Boudoir Photography Session with me as a great way to document the progress she’s made with her body. As someone who works out as much as she does, she had an amazing body. I couldn’t wait to pose her and get some glamorous shots.

Our glam hair and make-up team pampered her to make her look and feel beautiful.  It was important that she felt a level of comfort and trust with me as I posed and photographed her.  She was very comfortable with her body, so that made it easy for me to pose her.  She was open to my creative ideas, so we had a lot of fun with the session. For ideas on posing and outfits, check out my Bourdoir Pinterest Page.

Hair flip shots have become a favorite of mine. I just love how her’s turned out! I snapped the shot just at the perfect time as her hair whipped back as she sat topless in the chair. Having the photo in blank-and-white also makes it super sexy.

Showing her progress….

She brought along a guitar as a prop for the photos. She had done a photo shoot years ago with the guitar, and wanted to see the progress in her body, so we recreated the same pose. What a gorgeous shot of her holding just the guitar and wearing only a pair of black high heels.  She also brought some beautiful bra and underwear sets for the session. The red teddy was part of the studio wardrobe and I absolutely loved the color on her. The fishnet stockings were also a part of our wardrobe. We provide those to every client and they get to take home the pair of stockings to remember their session!  Doesn’t that shot of her just in the fishnets show off her stunning legs? For other great posing ideas from my other Boudoir photo shoots, take a look at my Boudoir page.

Although she brought some fantastic lingerie pieces, I loved my last pose of her just laying on the bed wrapped up in sheets.  It was a simple but beautiful shot of her. She was extremely happy with all the final photos from her Fitness Boudoir Session. I am hoping she comes back to see me immediately after her competition! There is nothing more rewarding about being a Boudoir Photographer than hearing how happy my clients are with their finished photos…..

Neutral Newborn Photographer Bucks County PA – Newborn Photographer Bucks County PA | Doylestown PA Photographer

Neutral Newborn Photographer Bucks County PA

Sugar and spice and everything nice…that’s what little girls are made of. Here’s a peek into a Neutral Newborn Photographer Bucks County PA.

For all my newborn sessions, I always ask parents for a photo of baby’s nursery, and thoughts on favorite colors or colors they decorate their home with. This baby’s parents decided on a mostly neutral color palette for her set-ups.  I was excited because I am LOVING neutrals for my Newborn Sessions these days.  The creamy colors looked beautiful against all her gorgeous, dark hair.  Even though she was 5 weeks old, she was so snuggly and easy to pose. Usually I like to photograph newborns when they are under 2 weeks old, because that’s when it’s easier to pose and get them to sleep. But she slept so well during her session, so I was able to do so many set-ups.

She was so cute sleeping in the little white antique bed. I loved layering all the different blankets and lace throws to give the photo a lot of depth. I also loved putting her in the antique wooden bucket. She looked so peaceful as she slept.  I also love to do macro shots when baby is awake. It is a great way to fill a gallery and to get those tiny details we so often forget when baby is older. Just look how cute her little feet are wrapped in the cream blanket. It looks they were sticking out of a cloud.  For other posing ideas, check out my Pinterest page. Babies are only so little for a short while and I love capturing this special time for my clients.

Even though she was a great sleeper, I was able to get a lot of awake shots too. Usually when baby is awake, it’s because they are hungry or uncomfortable. But not this little lady. While she was awake, she was in a great mood and I got some amazing shots showing off her beautiful brown eyes. Loved laying her on the pink fluffy blanket while she wore the light pink onesie and headband with the fresh water pearls. It was so girly! She was also super cute laying in the little wooden bed holding onto the knit bunny. I hope you loved my Neutral Newborn Photographer Bucks County PA Session, and I would love to photograph your little one too.

Newborn Session Info

Newborn Photography is such a rewarding job, because I get to help capture these first precious moments for my clients. The best time to photograph a newborn baby is when they are between 5-14 days of age. After this small window, babies are a little harder to settle and those sweet, sleepy, curly poses can be more difficult to achieve.

You can contact me at any time during your pregnancy to give me an estimated due date. I will then make a tentative booking, and when baby is born, please contact me to arrange a suitable day and time for your newborn session. Newborn photography sessions can take 2-3 hours, allowing enough time for feeding and comforting. For any questions about my Newborn Sessions, please check out my FAQ’s.
