I’ve been taking a ton of online courses and doing online research to ensure that by the time I graduate my university next year, I will know everything I can possibly learn to be a successful newborn photographer. With hopes of opening my own studio, I have found many tips and tricks to get the perfect sleepy baby during my sessions. One thing I hadn’t even thought of was that what Momma has been eating/drinking prior to nursing can have a huge affect on whether or not babies sleep soundly during their photo sessions. This affects many babies—keeping them from sleeping through the night and sometimes making them gassy. It is extremely important for Momma’s to remember that even after birth, your baby relies heavily on you for essential nutrients. What you eat has a huge effect on your babies health! Take a look at this list of foods to avoid when nursing.

Last weekend I took a trip to sunny Los Angeles where I was born and raised to photograph a few newborns. I met with Veronica and her husband Saturday morning to photograph their newborn son Mika in their apartment. The natural lighting in their bedroom was just beautiful! Here are a few of the photos from the shoot!

I thought it was about time to start a new Tumblr. I started out with my photography really focusing on live music, but now that I’m geared more towards portraits I figured it was time to let the other one go. So welcome to my new blog! Follow for photos, updates and more!
