What foods you put into your body can affect your baby - even after delivery

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.

BABY MIKA - 18 days

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!

"The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who’ll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you’re sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that’s almost never the case."

Welcome to my Tumblr page!

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!

I really bothers me when someone’s automatic response to a beautiful photo is “What camera was used?” or “What time of day was this taken?” 

It just doesn’t matter. 

Life is so much more beautiful, and simple, when we don’t focus on the “how” of art.

It just is.
