Finley's 8 month milestone ~ Lodi Baby photographer

Sweet little Finley - I don't even know how to describe how attached to this beautiful boy I am! His 8 month milestone was his third session with me to date and it has been such an honor to watch him grow! He started out such a tiny little peanut and every time I see him, he is just bursting in sweet personality. 

His last session was in a dead grass field so we decided to change it up to some cherry orchards and my famous gorgeous Sycamore driveway. I can't wait to see him at his one year session!

Baby Ivy ~ Lodi Newborn Photographer

I love when the weather and light gives us the perfect opportunity for outdoor sessions! They're not for everyone but when parents do request them, they are pure MAGIC! It was almost a little kismet that her name was Ivy, too! When her momma asked for a fairy princess theme, my mind went wild and I had so much fun playing dress with this sweet girl!

Nora ~ 6 months - Lodi Baby photographer

It has been so crazy at the studio lately with so many babies and bellies that I have completely dropped the ball on blogging! So for the next few weeks, instead of blogging every session, I'm just going to highlight some different sessions I've done over the past 6 months or so! 

First up is sweet little Nora - I wanted to highlight her for a few reasons! One is that her mama requested a studio mini session for her! While most of my milestone sessions are outdoors, I love doing them in studio when they are little enough, too! The other reason is that it's been so long since I've blogged, I am actually doing her 1 year birthday session this weekend and I thought, what better way to celebrate sweet Nora than to show her growth!

Baby Adeline ~ Lodi Newborn Photographer

A little while back, a good friend of mine and his beautiful wife came to me for their maternity session and those maternity sessions really gear me up waiting for that sweet baby to arrive. It makes it even more real for me seeing the belly and then hearing that the baby has been born. To get to be a part of such a beautiful process is one of the greatest honors I could ever receive from my friends and my clients. So when I heard that sweet Adeline had arrived, naturally I could not WAIT to get my hands on her! Not only that, but seeing my lifelong friend become a dad put a warmth in my heart that I cannot even describe. Our session was SO fun celebrating her and her amazing parents. 

Mom and Dad are huge A's fans and brought me some awesome gear to incorporate into her session! How sweet is she?? 

Her mom also brought Addy's great-grandmother's scarf that had also been incorporated into their wedding and asked me to use it with Addy. I just love little details like this that the family will always treasure! 

Welcome to the world, baby girl. You are SO loved! (AND HAVE THE BEST HAIR!!!!)

Baby Grayson ~ 4 months ~ Stockton Baby Photographer

Growth sessions are something I added to Rockabye Photography just in the last six months or so and I just cannot explain how much I am so glad I did! Not only do I get to see some of my newborns come back over and over but I get to experience new little baby clients and watch them grow, too! Each age has shown what a wonderful and sweet little personality is in each of these little babes. Sweet little Grayson came to see me with his mama and grandma and despite the freezing weather, he put up with all my crazy dances and letting me get him naked for a few booty shots :) His mama brought the BEST knit hat (if you know me at all, you know my knitting obsession) that I just had to put him in for a few shots, too! We sure tried our hardest to get a smile out of him and every once in a while, he'd tease us with a little smirk. Check out this beautiful little boy!
