Baking Babies at Nicole Jackson Photography, with Supreme Sweets!

One of the greatest adventures of my photography career so far has been taking on the challenge of photographing a room full of “Baking Babies.” Christina Danner, with Supreme Sweets, and I collaborated for this adventure. Christina is an amazing baker, and Supreme Sweets has captured the sweet tooth of so many in our local area and beyond.  The idea came to us one day as we were talking, and the adventure began. Finding the right babies for the job, baking the pies and collecting what would be our set. We ended up with one little man baker named Jack:

Is he not the cutest little baking baby you've ever seen?

Jack was our little stud muffin of the baking babies shoot!

As you can see, my studio was turned into a “Country Kitchen” for this shoot. The pies, and small cakes in the back of the set were all created by Christina at the Supreme Sweets kitchen! (You can view her work at www.SupremeSweets.net or on her facebook page: www.facebook.com/supremesweets.net

After getting Jack secured for his position, we began to fill in spots for the girls. The original goal was to have all “sitting” babies. We didn’t want them falling over, but it would be nice if they weren’t running away too! ha ha  BUT, there was one sweet little lady who stole our heart and her spot in the pot, which helped her sit up as she’s not quite steady.

Annabelle snuck in the pot to be a part of our baking babies photo shoot.

From there, we got more awesome little girls ranging from 6 months to 1 year to play too. Each of them have unique personalities and they are all so beautiful. As we situated all the babies, and got parents ready for the shot… I asked everyone to be quiet so I could make noises to get all of their attention at the same time! What FUN it was!

Baking Babies Drummer!

Bringing them all together was so much fun… It lasted about two minutes, so we had to get them in fast and get the shot!

Newborn Brayden: 13 days {Nicole Jackson Photography, Petaluma Newborn Photographer}

Baby Brayden came to Nicole Jackson Photography with his Mommy, Daddy and big Sister. They are such a super cute little family, I had an amazing time getting to know them.

Brayden 13 days new, with his first pair of glasses.

 

Brayden was such a perfect little model at Nicole Jackson Photography… I thought my little pilot’s glasses were cute before he showed up, but when I put them on his little face… it was heart melting time. <3

Babies often times surprise me with funny faces, but this was a first in hand signs. Ha ha ha Rock on Mama, let’s party at midnight!

Baby Brayden is so lucky to be 13 days old and already so loved and protected by his big sister Arianna. She was SO happy to sit and hold him, and did so well at it!

Safely snuggled in his Mama’s arms, he is so content. Look at this perfect little lips. <3

Water Babies… {Nicole Jackson Photography, Petaluma, CA}

When Summertime rolls around each year, I am compelled to create some Water Babies fun in my studio. I worked with the “Pool” last year, and this year I have added in the beach! It has been so fun finding all of the pieces to make the set come together. Each baby who has come to visit my Water Babies fun has been absolutely adorable and so much fun!

Here are  some fun examples…

The Little Man in the Moon {Petaluma Baby Photographer}

I absolutely love when my clients sign up for my “Watch Me Grow” plan as their baby enjoys their first year of life. Parents purchase sessions in advance either for 6 months and 12 months, or 3,6,9 and 12 months. When purchased in advance, there is a discount on each session, and we get to have fun together capturing their first year!

I had SUCH a great time with baby Clark for his 6 month photo session. He is part of my “Watch me Grow” plan. Clark is wearing an upcycled romper outfit by Simply Sassafras. I am enjoying collecting more outfits for older babies in my studio! The moon prop is one of the newest in my studio and becoming a very quick fan favorite. I love it!

Clark’s parents call him their “Dino-Baby,” so we had to have some fun with his nickname! He brought in some dino buddies from his bedroom to snuggle with. I think he likes them!

Watch Me Grow, Baby, Photographer

Dino-Baby’s Friends.

Isn’t that little smile just the greatest thing? He is just so incredibly happy and sweet!  His Mama is an orthodontist, so we had a little laugh over the fact that his eye teeth are growing in first. When he smiles at you, his little mouth shows two tiny teeth on top that look like a mini-vampire! <3 It makes my heart smile to find the unique differences in each of my tiny little clients!

Happy Happy Half birthday to such a dapper little fella! Don’t grow too fast, but I can’t wait to see you at One Year!!
