Reno Newborn Photographer | Lana Jade

Meet Lana (pronounced lawn-ah), just days fresh. I was lucky enough to capture her freshness just within an hour of her arrival into this world and now, her newborn session. She was a very alert, wide-eyed girl and just so precious. Her big sister Kaelyn is the proudest big sister I’ve met yet and you can see it in her face below. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been photographing this family for almost 2 years now. It really is a blessing to have clients who ask me to return again and again for their special life moments and it’s an honor to be trusted.

Little Lana was more awake for most her of newborn session, but we didn’t mind at all. Here are some of my favorites from Lana’s session and one of the whole family (fur baby included). I love including fur babies if at all possible and this pup was happy and willing to sit nicely for this family portrait. If you’re expecting and would like to discuss having me capture your maternity and/or newborn portraits, please contact your Reno newborn photographer at shootme@huongforrest.com.

Reno Photographer | Self Portrait

Reno Photographer | Self Portrait

In this week’s blog friends’ roundup, I’m revisiting a previous self portrait project…from 2011!!!! That seems like forever ago! Below is a self portrait inspired by the decade I was born. Can anyone take a guess as to which decade I tried to emulate in this self portrait? I cannot believe I have not taken a proper self portrait since 2011 (sorry, iPhone snapshots of my mug definitely do not count…or does it?!). Since discovering this was my last actual self portrait, I’ve decided I will make a more honest attempt at regular self portraits where I experiment with new techniques, whether that be lighting, editing, styling, etc. I have a few ideas in mind and look forward to sharing my next self portrait…a more accurate depiction of who I am currently.

When was the last time you took a few self portraits? Duck lips do not count, my friends. ๐Ÿ˜‰ While you’re pondering this, you should read more about my friend Tara’s self portrait project! Visit Tara’s blog to read about her twist on this project.

Reno Birth Photographer | Welcome, Lana

Reno Birth Photographer | Welcome, Lana

Several weeks ago, I was honored to capture a very “Fresh 48” session. It was amazing to observe the calm around this experienced mother, her home and her family. It was a home birth and newborn baby girl Lana arrived as quick as can be and was immediately surrounded by the love of her family. There was such a peace to the entire event and it honestly made me wish I could step back in time with my own birthing decisions.

Baby Lana was welcomed by her mom, dad, big sister and sweet dog. I’ll get to share the newborn portraits of Lana soon, so be on the lookout for sweet peeks soon. Here is a little look at the Fresh 48 session and some of my favorite photos from the day. What was your favorite memory from your “birth” day?

Reno Photographer | Spring Cleaning

Reno Photographer | Spring Cleaning

Now that it’s officially spring (yes, despite what the weather may look like outside your windows), I think a lot of people are thinking about spring cleaning! I’ve always wondered who thought of this “spring cleaning” idea. (Seriously, I don’t need another reason to clean, but maybe some do need this boost!)

I came across a helpful article from good ol’ Martha Stewart with their recommendations on what to include in your spring cleaning routine. Here are the bullet points:

  • Clean windows
  • Dust lightbulbs
  • Wash your blinds
  • Stock your stain-fighting kit
  • Update bed linens
  • Switch it up (ceiling fans)
  • Protect wooden floors
  • Clean out the refrigerator
  • Restock homekeeping supplies (I call these cleaning supplies)
  • Deep clean carpets and rugs
  • Clean your curtains
  • Replace batteries in smoke detectors

It sounds like I still have a LOT to do if I am following along with Martha’s list! Visit the entire Spring Cleaning: Spring-Cleaning Basics article to read more direct from Martha herself! I would love to have this list accomplished before mid-April, while it’s still Spring of course and not drag it out until it’s time to for Fall cleaning (which is what generally seems to happen). I also have personal goals to purge a lot of toddler clothes, purge my photography props and finally re-organize the “prop room” along with my office. Yes, tall order here! I will NOT be sharing any before pics of these spaces, but I would be thrilled to do so once I’ve completed my goal.

Do you have Spring cleaning tasks each year? What’s on your list? I wonder what my friend Tara in North Carolina has to say about spring cleaning! Visit Tara’s blog to find out what this Fayetteville NC photographer is up to in her part of the country!

Reno Photographer | What to Wear

Reno Photographer | What to Wear

What to Wear Wednesdays are back! We’ve taken a brief hibernation, but it’s prime time to return with Spring now here and summer right around the corner. In today’s what to wear, I’m showcasing something that’s a bit different then what you’d normally expect to see. WRAPS. Huh? Yes, wraps! Wear these crazy wraps and prepare for summer and for your portrait session.

I tried these wraps last November right before my own boudoir session and from then on, I decided to carry these wraps as a convenience and a service to my clients. They work! I feel wonderful and it has helped me kick my own butt back into shape now that I see what a visual difference it has made.

I know how hard my clients work to prepare for their portrait sessions when it comes to all the details such as hair, makeup, nails, wardrobe and accessories and this is now an option so you can feel really confident for your session with me. What exactly is it and how does it work? Well, simply put, it tightens, tones and firms in as little as 45 minutes. More details can be found right here on my wraps page if you’re interested! The photo here is my personal testimony of these wraps!

reno-photographer-skinny-wraps

I’m forever sold and I am so excited to offer these as a what to wear option for my clients! Loose mommy skin can’t be tightened and toned, unfortunately, and these wraps have been so incredible to so many people I’ve personally wrapped. They’re so easy to wear and you can do so right in the comfort of your own home. Here’s a video that shows you how to wrap yourself.

Crazy, isn’t it? Yes, I know, but I was a complete skeptic until I tried my first complete treatment. If you’d like to learn more about this crazy wrap thing and how to wear it to prepare for your portrait session with your Reno photographer, visit the Try My Wraps page on Facebook or go directly to the online store! If you’re ready to schedule your portrait session, contact me at 775.233.8382 or email shootme@huongforrest.com. I look forward to working with you.
