Reno Newborn Photographer | Baby Kinley { 16 Days }

Reno Newborn Photographer | Baby Kinley { 16 Days }

Meet baby girl Kinley and her handsome big brothers! This was such a sweet session with this little angel and I’m so honored to capture such a special time for this family. Her brothers were so gentle with her and I really was so impressed with how great they were…made me almost want to try for a third child…almost! I could not have asked for a more perfectly sleepy newborn during our session and actually, I think she slept the entire time. I don’t have any wide-eyed shots of Kinley at all, but all the rest are really precious.

Below are some of my absolute personal favorites from my Reno newborn photography session with Kinley and there’s also a sweet slideshow of our session. Mom and Dad loved the photos and birth announcements have been sent so I’m finally able to share this with the world. I hope you enjoy!

If you’re expecting and would love for me to document your teeny tiny, contact me as soon as you can so I can ensure availability on my calendar. Call 775.233.8382 or email shootme@huongforrest.com to schedule your consultation.

Reno Baby Photographer | Henley Is 6 Months

Reno Baby Photographer | Henley Is 6 Months

Happy Valentine’s Day! I thought it would be fitting for today to share my favorite photos from Henley’s mini session recently. She’s 6 months now and is such a ham! I haven’t seen her (in person) since she was with me for her newborn photography session, but she still photographs like a charm. Okay, to be honest, she was quite fussy during our session, except for bits here and there which I did capture. You would never know it though, would you?! She is such a sweetheart and really loves her tongue right now. I love all the little things our babies do that make them unique. Here are a few of my personal favorites from Henley’s Valentine’s mini session and the first one is definitely a favorite with her Mom and Dad!

And yes, you may have missed out on Valentine’s minis this year, but they’ll be back next year, so be on the lookout! In the meantime, spring isn’t too far away, so if you’re considering new family portraits with the new season, let’s chat soon to save your spot on my calendar. Call 775.233.8382 or email shootme@huongforrest.com to confirm your spring portrait session!

Reno Photographer | What’s In My Bag?

Reno Photographer | What’s In My Bag?

What’s in my bag? And I don’t mean camera bag…I mean purse. Well, I actually just recently cleaned out my purse (Transformers toys, crumbled Cheez-Its, receipts galore, 18 lip glosses) and I probably should’ve left it alone, but I didn’t think about blogging when I was clearing the contents of said purse. Today’s random Tuesday blog post with my photographer friends hones in on “what’s in my bag?” and since I conduct business from my bag, who knows what’s in there! Well, below is a visual, but I’ll further elaborate on a few items that may not be as evident.

In the first photo in the top left, it’s pretty basic stuff: business cards, gum, watch, generic Aleve, a slew of writing utensils, nail file, lip gloss, empty CF card holder, mini Moo cards holder, floss, Jawbone Icon bluetooth headset, Square card reader, emergency iPhone battery charger and handy dandy blingy purse holder. Those are all pretty self-explanatory, yes? Good.

If we are to move in clockwise motion to the next image, you see my overflowing wallet. Yes, it’s overflowing with receipts that desperately need to be scanned into my NeatDesk and recycled.

The image below the wallet happens to be my beloved and personalized Gallery Leather planner. I live by the book, so to speak.

The image below my planner shows two packs of tissues. If you know me, you know I sneeze like no other person you’ve ever met. I may be small, but when I sneeze, you may want to brace yourself. What’s that saying? Small, but mighty? Yes, I have a mighty sneeze!

The image next to that shows the It Works! Global Ultimate Body Applicator and my blitz cards. I never leave home without these nowadays as I never know who I might run into and I may be able to help them tighten, tone and firm their body in 45 minutes. I’m almost surprised I don’t have my roll of saran wrap in my purse, but it’s in my car. “What?” you ask? If you’ve not heard of this “crazy wrap thing”, you may want to check out the before/after images and testimonials for yourself on my Try My Wraps Facebook page. I was a skeptic until I tried them for myself and now, I believe! Yes, my own before/after results are on my Facebook page!

The last image shows a bottle of Fat Fighters, also from It Works! Global. These NEVER leave my purse. They’re a supplement I take after heavy meals to help block about 30% of the carbs and bad fats from my sometimes poor food choices (ahem, fried chicken). I never leave home without them! If you’re curious and want more info on any of these supplements, or the crazy wrap thing I mentioned, visit this website for all the details!

And that concludes the contents of what’s in my bag! I know, nothing too insanely bizarre other than those wraps and fat fighters, right? I know, I know, maybe a bit bizarre, but to each his own. What’s in YOUR bag? What’s the most odd ball item in your bag? My fellow photographer friend Tara also indulges us with what’s in her bag today, so be sure to head over to her blog to see what she’s got in her bag!

Christine - Thanks for sharing what’s in your bag – mine had some pretty random items too (like a bar of soap – what?!)

Ally D - You keep so much in your purse! I love how organized you are!

Angela Douglas Ramsey - LOL. Love this post. I am cleaning out my purse today and it looks very similar to yours.

melissa - I am inspired to check out my bag. I bet I find some cheese its as well =) and probably some legos or something little hands stuck in there

ALM Photo - It always seems like too much until you clean it out and realize the item you need just got cleaned out.

Reno Maternity Photographer | Waiting on Baby

Reno Maternity Photographer | Waiting on Baby

I’ve known this little one was on her way when she was a mere lentil-bean sized baby and that felt like forever ago! Today we celebrate the last maternity session awaiting this little girl and we celebrate Mom with a much deserved makeover. Melinda is an incredible mommy and I’ve loved photographing her family over the past year and a half. I thought it would be fun to surprise her at today’s session with professional hair and makeup, courtesy of Kiss and Makeup Reno. Matt, her hubby, joined us as we were putting on the finishing touches and as you can see below, he “helped”. It was a beautiful session and we really got a chance to pamper Melinda as she enters her last few weeks of pregnancy. The next time we get together will be for the birth of this little girl! Yes, that’s right, I’ll be there for the birth! I cannot wait to document the arrival of this new addition to an already beautiful family.

Here are a few favorites of mine from this maternity session. I love how excited everyone is to welcome their new family member! Are you expecting and would like to confirm me to photograph your maternity, birth or newborn session? Call me at 775.233.8382 or email shootme@huongforrest.com to reserve your estimated due date on my calendar today.

Reno Newborn Photographer | Baby Olive

Reno Newborn Photographer | Baby Olive

My heart races with anticipation anytime one of my clients nears her due date. It’s my impatience, desire to meet Reno’s newest resident and my hopes that all will go well for mama and baby. I waited a long while to be able to meet and photograph little Miss Olive and it was so worth it. She is the sweetest little gal and won me over immediately. Okay, it might have been the mess of hair on her head…or her chin…or her forehead! Oh my gosh, she’s such a sweetheart and I am so glad she’s happy, healthy and home. We had a great morning together and she was awake for some of her newborn photos and asleep in others and there is a great blend of lifestyle and posed newborn photos for her parents to enjoy for many many years to come. Her big brother Brian even got in for a few “siblings” shots and the moments captured are absolutely priceless.

Do you remember what your little newborn looked like at this age? Do you really remember how tiny they were? Thank you to Olive’s parents for allowing me to be there for such a special time in their lives. I know they will forever cherish having these memories to look back upon…especially once she enters preteen days! Here are some of my personal favorites from Olive’s “newborn” session. If you’re expecting, contact your Reno newborn photographer to have your due date added to the calendar! You can call 775.233.8382 or email shootme@huongforrest.com.
