Tiny Princesses Rule!

Tiny princesses rule here in Arizona! This little princess was such a beauty and a sweetheart. Her mom purchased a photo session for her to celebrate her upcoming birthday. She had questions about Frederick, my prop frog. After all, you never know. During photo sessions, there is a chance that he might turn into a real life prince! I am looking forward to photographing her beautiful sister (who reminds me of Audrey Hepburn!) and her family this fall and winter.

With princess photo sessions, I must have some that are back lit. Back lighting is my favorite kind of lighting to work with and creates that fairy tale glow I am always on the hunt for! It was tricky when I first learned how to in manual. You have to consider your f-stop, shutter speed, metering and the angle of the sun. Once it became a mastered skill, it became something I was known for doing and it’s something I love to offer to all of my photo clients because it’s so special.

Will Frederick turn into a prince or remain a frog?

Sometimes, the magic isn’t found in frogs turning into princes, but in princesses discovering that they are the ones who carry royalty inside their hearts.

Family Is Creating Memories Together

When families come to me for a photo session, I know they are not just coming for photos. They want to walk away with positive feelings and knowing that they built memories together in the half hour or hour that I spend with them. I have to work really quickly to help them feel comfortable with me and each other.

I had my own photo session recently for my engagement photos and even though I’ve professionally been photographing for almost 9 years, it was intimidating! You become very vulnerable when you are being photographed and it’s important that your photo clients feel comfortable and relaxed.

Photographers, I think what helps with this are 5 important keys:

  1. Confidence
  2. Connection
  3. Genuinely loving people
  4. Directing
  5. Common ground

The joy and genuine love that came from this family was evident and you could tell them deeply care about each other and I invite you to take a peek into their photo session together.

It’s a Mickey Mouse Themed 1st Birthday Party! — Sneak Preview

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Themed Party -- Baby Photo Session / Beba Photography

HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY!

I still have the majority of these photos to edit, but couldn’t resist posting at least just 1 for you guys to see!

This little guy LOVES watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and is already quickly becoming a big fan of the mouse! His 1st Birthday party is going to be Mickey Mouse themed and his Mama found this darling little outfit on Etsy to complete the look. As a former Disneyland Cast Member, I about died when I saw this outfit!

So so so so cute!

I first photographed this little guy when he was born at the hospital almost a year ago. It amazes me how quickly time flies:

How is it that children can grow up so quickly in just 1 year?! They start out as little miracles and grow without us realizing it into bigger miracles.

I cannot wait to see what this baby boy becomes as an adult, what he will be doing, who’s lives he will be touching and impacting in a positive way.

I’m not a Mommy (yet!) but as Mommies, do you just sit back and look at your little one and daydream about what he or she will someday become?

Before they grow up, savor these precious little moments and remember all the details about what makes them your special child.

Each milestone is something to celebrate!
