Reno Newborn Photographer | Mommy Monday { Fall }

Reno Newborn Photographer | Mommy Monday { Fall }

Welcome to Mommy Monday, a spot for me to share with you some of my moments related to motherhood and parenting and the fine blend between family, motherhood and being a Reno newborn photographer. Please note, the information provided in these posts is not to replace the sound and professional advice from your health care provider, child’s pediatrician, certified doula or your own maternal instinct.

Each year, I look forward to the change in seasons. Not because I’m over going to Lake Tahoe, or enjoying the sun, sand and water, but because of the glorious beauty fall can be and the joy in my boys’ faces as they pile up the leaves, toss them into the air and bury each other in as many leaves as they can gather in their little hands. When we are fortunate enough to not have crazy windstorms blow through weekend after weekend, we are blessed with some incredibly gorgeous fall foliage right here in Northern Nevada. I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin spice (but I’m totally down for salted caramel), but the glorious colors are well worth the change in seasons. Have you had a chance to enjoy our fall? This past weekend was especially beautiful what with the warmer temperatures and sun shining down on us. I could not have asked for a better weekend for a few sessions and to take my boys out for a few photographs of their sweet faces. Make sure to enjoy it soon! Our falls never seem to last for very long and our babies are never this age again. Enjoy every moment. Happy Monday, friends! I hope y’all have a wonderful day. xoxo

Reno Photographer | Duy + Thuy { Together }

I’m just now getting around to blogging this session from December. While I was in Phoenix for my on-location newborn session, I had the opportunity to photograph my brother and sister-ish-law. (You like that, don’t you?) It was before the holidays and there is such a thing called Glendale Lights and it was gorgeous. We walked around, played, enjoyed the sights and captured these two fun kids. There are even a few snapshots of yours truly playing in the streets on Instagram. 😉 If I’m not in NYC around the holidays this year, I wouldn’t mind being back here to enjoy the sights again. Below are just a few of my personal favorites from this fun couples session.

Reno Newborn Photographer | Baby Brooks

Reno Newborn Photographer | Baby Brooks

It’s been a little while since I’ve had an “older” newborn. I love photographing newborns of all ages, but sometimes, they’re less “curly” the more days they are before they come see me. Baby Brooks was almost a month and I knew wrapped poses would be perfect on this handsome newborn baby. He and big brother Jett visited me recently and they’re just the most adorable boys. See for yourself below. Baby Brooks discovered something new during our session: how to suck his thumb! It was heart-melting, to say the least.

Neither of my boys ever sucked their thumbs, so I find it so precious! I researched thumb sucking a little bit more and found this tidbit:

Sucking calms your baby down. Even when you’ve just finished feeding your baby, she might still clamor for more sucking action. That doesn’t mean she’s ready to chow down again. In addition to suckling to fill their tummies, babies need “nonnutritive” sucking, the kind that mellows them out. It’s the whole reason we have pacifiers in the first place — sucking helps a baby calm down. Some babies, like your own little thumb sucker, love nonnutritive sucking more than others.

You can read more on thumb sucking here. Were your children thumb suckers? Feel free to leave a comment and tell me below. And if you’re expecting and would like to secure your newborn portrait experience, please email shootme@huongforrest.com for availability.

Reno Baby Photographer | Kinley { 1 Year }

Reno Baby Photographer | Kinley { 1 Year }

I sometimes do not realize how quickly a year passes until a client contacts me to book her daughter’s one-year session. WHAT?!?! A year already?! I’ve had the honor of photographing this darling little girl when she was a newborn, six-months and now she’s a year old. I still cannot believe it, but I’m blogging it, so I must believe it! Kinley wasn’t too set on being in front of the camera for me today, or smashing her cake (without her mama’s help), so these oh-so-serious and stoic photos of her show the seriousness that comes with turning one. (Right?) We made our way through a few outfit changes, managed to somewhat smash the cake and got her all cleaned up for her portrait with her beautiful mama.

I’ve highlighted a few of my favorites from this birthday smash cake session below and have included the slideshow as well. Enjoy. And if you have a little one ready to smash cake with me, contact me for availability at shootme@huongforrest.com.

And a little birthday poem for Kinley:

One year older

One year wiser

One year smarter

One year cuter

One year older

One year jollier

One year nicer

One year sweeter

All these things

You are going to be

As you turn one

My cute little baby

Happy 1st birthday

Reno Wedding Photographer | Kaitlin + Taylor { Engaged }

Reno Wedding Photographer | Kaitlin + Taylor { Engaged }

Right before Christmas, I spent a fun afternoon and evening with one of the sweetest couples ever in Fallon, Nevada. Kaitlin and Taylor’s wedding isn’t until Spring of 2015, but you could say they are planners, and have to be due to Taylor’s schedule (which is why this session took place two days before Christmas). We had a great time photographing their engagement portraits. I loved hearing more about their stories of how they met, those early days, how he stole her heart (finally), road trips and their engagement. And trust me, after the road trips they’ve experienced together, nothing is going to stand in the way of their love, not even Kaitlin being sick.

I cannot wait for them to tie the knot in 2015, but I look forward to capturing a mini engagement session this summer for these two lovebirds. We have some fun ideas planned for non-snow portraits and I can’t wait to get them back in front of the camera. For now, here are their winter engagement photos. Aren’t they adorable?! Please feel free to leave them a bit of love in the comments below. I’ll be sure to pass it along to them!
