San Diego Newborn Photography {Baby M Sneak Peek}

I was lucky enough to meet this cutie pie’s parents in the spring when they were preparing her nursery! As luck would have it, we ended up chatting nurseries and photography and I was thrilled when they hired me in anticipation of Baby M’s arrival! Life is funny that way, isn’t it?!

Baby M ended up arriving a bit ahead of schedule, but we were able to coordinate our date and luckily took these before she was even a week old! That’s definitely what I find to be the magical sweet spot for newborn baby photos!

Talk about a lovely personality and sweet disposition! Baby M was a delight to photograph. She smiled and cooed, slept like and angel, and smiled some more! She even gave me a little shoulder roll a couple times. I think this little one has the title “Super Model” in her future! ❤

I’ve known her stunning Mommy for about 5 years and was thrilled to have the opportunity to get some newborn photos of Baby D… Can you believe she’s baby #6?! She evened the score with 3 boys and 3 girls in this lovely family!

She’s a lucky little girl to come into such a loving family! I can’t wait to watch her grow!

Scale // Perspective {Photo Challenge}

Playing with scale, emphasizing proportions, is definitely a great way to help tell your story in photos. The Daily Post photo challenge this week “Scale” reminded me of some of the fun photos I’ve shared in the past! Join me as I stroll down memory lane with five of my favorite photos playing with scale 🙂

Dreamy // Sleepy Baby Leo {Photo Challenge}

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // sleeping baby in a basket, newborn photography, San Diego

I love photographing families, and usually have the opportunity to work with lots of parents and kids. But rarely do I get the opportunity to photograph a newborn baby! Lucky for me, I had the perfect opportunity to photograph cutie pie Baby Leo recently. I was so happy that he slept* throughout our session! Talk about a “dreamy” baby and sweet images! You might remember his gorgeous mama, handsome daddy and adorable sister from our maternity session in August – check it out here!

So how did we get the baby to sleep the whole time? It was MAGIC! Just kidding 🙂
