I am so in love with this newborn session I recently did with little Tessa. As I mentioned in my post last week I would be posting Tessa’s newborn photos today. I can’t get over how perfectly they came out. She was such a dream. She was just two weeks old when we did these photos & I realized why they say you should do your newborn photos within the first ten days… after the ten days they don’t squish up & mold as easily. It seems little newborns quickly realize that they can stretch out & have all the space in the world.
Even though I couldn’t form her into little Tessa balls the photos still came out so nicely. I used my living room with all natural lighting for these photos. One other thing I learned through this shoot was the way to face the little babe. I should have faced her toward the window so all the light was falling directly on her instead of the side of her. Even still, she’s a total dream & I am insanely happy with how they all came out.
Isn’t she the cutest thing in the world? I can’t thank Lisa & Tony enough for all of the photos they let me take of their little family this year. I can’t wait for all the photo adventures to come & to watch little Tessa grow into the beautiful little girl I know she’ll be.

I’ve throw together my first ever mini session. I’m officially in love with them. I get to use all my creativity & create something super fun & take pictures adorable kids. The adorable kids in the photos bellow are my kids… they make the perfect models.
As much as I love offering my services & wonderful experience that I provide when working with my clients I also love sharing my tips, tricks & the way I create what I love (& what I hope you love too). As you follow me & my photography career I will always be more than willing to share my experiences, secrets & ides with you that way you can learn from me, my mistakes & my accomplishments. With all that being said I’ll dive in & share how I created my Spooky Mini Session.
It was simple to put together. My house has nice natural lighting & beautiful flooring so all my studio setting photos are in my house. I hung up multiple layers of cobweb on my wall & cut out black bats using this template. I let Adalie pick out a few pumpkins from Trader Joe’s & set them in the background. I grabbed little bottles & the chest from Hobby Lobby & the hand bowl is from Target. Add some dry ice & you have the perfect Halloween setting. I got the template for my advertising on Etsy. I am no graphic designer so I always head to Etsy for anything that is beyond my skill level!
I’ve had countless photoshoots with kids this summer & have come to discover that they are happiest when they are doing something fun. You’ll get real & authentic moments from them if you give them something to do & capture all of the fun they’re having. What’s more fun than getting photos of your children being children?
I can’t wait to share all of the mini session photos with you all later on & I can promise you that this is just the beginning. Mini sessions are going to be a regular for me! For now enjoy my adorable little models making some magical potion that they probably hoped would turn me into a frog.
How cute are my models? They always do a great job with my constant photography needs. If you haven’t booked a session yet shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org & we’ll lock it down! If you feel like creating your own little photoshoot with your babes it’s easier than you think. Do it & hashtag your photos with #craftfoodlove so I can see all the adorableness!
Have you ever done a mini session? If so, what are some tips you’ve learned from doing them?
I don’t know about you but I’m the kind of girl that has an outfit of the month. One outfit that I tend to love for a whole month. So I decided that I would give you one outfit each month that’s been my favorite. My outfits will also tie into my photography as well. The outfits you see each month will be my favorite to wear casually but also my favorite outfits to do shoots in.
This outfit is simple… & I’ll be honest it’s more my outfit of the summer than the month. I have loved it for shoots because the top is simple & airy, my pants & boots give me good protection when wondering through weeds & plants searching for the right spot to shoot from. I got the boots at the beginning of this summer & promised my husband I would wear them all the time. I held strong to that promise & have worn them so much that I’ll probably need a new pair for next summer… someone find my husband & convince him of that!
I usually pair this outfit with a purplish lip which I think contrasts nicely with the teal top. My hair is curled all the time because it’s easy & cute. I ALWAYS bring a hair tie with me on shoots… not just on shoots but everywhere I go. If you can’t tell I have so much hair & it can get warm underneath all of that so I always make sure I have something to throw it up in.
Here is the outfit of the month… simple, fun & cute.
I’m lucky enough to have a photographer as a husband so finding someone to drag around & take photos of me is easy. He is always so willing to help me out & keep pushing me along. I truly am lucky to have such a great man in my life. Plus, look at the adorable boots he got me… that makes him a keeper for sure!
