FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHER:
This was a magical session from start to finish. It seems funny to say this, but we kind of knew it would be. From the moment mommy inquired with us, we just got an immediate vibe of awesomeness from her! We totally jived on email and then once baby arrived and they came for their newborn session, we totally clicked in person. Our session together was full of ooh’s and aah’s, laughs and a few emotional moments. Baby M is not only a incredibly gorgeous baby, but is also as sweet as they come. He snoozed through his entire session with us, barely making a peep. We were able to capture a great variety of shots, starting with bean bag posing, to a prop, to a flokati look and then ending with parent shots. As part of our pre-session consultation, we always ask for color, posing and prop preferences. Mommy requested soft whites, creams and shades of blue for his session, as these are the colors in baby’s nursery. She also shared that she preferred more natural, simple and clean looks that focused on baby, and less prop set ups. For parent shots, it was important to them to have more emotional and organic shots. For us, it was a homerun session! I love that we captured a huge smile, and that shot with his sweet little face, a knitted sleepy cap, and teddy bear is probably one of my new favorite shots of all time. In fact, we just updated the cover of our website with this shot! The bare baby shots on that gorgeous grey/sage fabric are amazing too. The color compliments his skin and hair so perfectly and he went into every pose so peacefully. The one prop that we used is our beautiful driftwood bowl. This prop pairs so nice with our blue/grey wrap, knitted layer blanket and light background. Mom and Dad were joking that the all cream flokati look was his “Jon Snow” set up- lots of fur and jet black hair. After the session was over, we got the nicest note from Mom: “I’m so so excited to see the pics, you have no idea!!! It was so great meeting you guys too. Today totally exceeded my expectations, which were already quite high based on your amazing portfolio. I will def let our friends know about you guys.” Made us feel great!
Matt and I (Jessica) are a husband and wife professional photography team; Matt is the photographer and I am the “baby wrangler”, newborn poser and studio manager. Together we are “Matt Cramer Photography”, and we specialize in custom newborn and baby portraiture. We founded our company 2010, shortly after our son was born. We were both working full time, corporate jobs and found ourselves craving more time with our son and a better work/life balance with our new little family. Our son was growing before our eyes, and we knew we wanted to make a change that would give us the quality of life and flexibility we dreamed of. So we put our heads together, and drawing off Matt’s photography skills and my business background, we found out fairly quickly that we made a pretty great team! We offer newborn, baby milestone and one year cake smash portrait sessions. We have photographed over 1000+ babies throughout the years and are extremely focused on posing and photographing newborns safely. We are best known for our organic, textured and natural style of baby photography.
