Baby M – San Jose Newborn Photography

Last year, I had the great privilege of photographing this beautiful family.  Nicole and Jeff are a lovely couple with a very sweet daughter (and two dogs)… but they had room in their hearts for another baby!

So when Nicole contacted me about taking newborn photographs of their new baby boy,  I was so happy for them that I teared up!

I was touched and humbled and honored to take these photographs of Baby M…

Oh my gosh, I think he just winked at me!

Baby M was such a doll.  He was awake but completely happy throughout the entire session.

Natalia took to her big sister role effortlessly.

These two look like they are already best buds.

Only a week old but already so so so loved from coast to coast.

Mommy and daddy pinky promise to love you forever, Baby M.

Where do I begin with this post?  I thought about just jumping into pictures but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to write a little bit about my friend, Janie.

Janie and I first met at church a long time ago.  We weren’t really close until we became college roommates.  And, as they say, we lived happily ever after.

Janie is like my older sister who is younger than me.  She saw me through my first break-up.  I saw her through a lot of really random funny moments (e.g. ants in her bag of cheetos, I Love Lucy reruns at midnight, cot-sleeping).  Just typing this makes me giggle.  College roommates are special, I think.  Or, at least, Janie is anyway.

I once bought her a bra.

She saw me cry over a bowl of oatmeal.

She was a bridesmaid at my wedding.  I made a slideshow for her’s.

And even though she now lives over 2,000 miles away, we talk on the phone regularly.  Growing up, my mom had a few friends from Korea she always kept in touch with… Janie is one of those friends for me.

So when Janie came for a visit a few weeks back, we had a blast talking about everything from our old days at UCLA to motherhood… and, of course, had a mini photo session with her 6-month old cutie, Baby N!

But, first, let me introduce Baby N’s awesome hair!

It was my first time meeting this little guy in person!

I think he gets his looks from his mommy but his personality from his daddy.  Baby N was such a chill, happy baby… that isn’t to say that Janie isn’t happy.

“Should I smile?”

This may have been when Janie tripped, I’m not sure…

At 6 months, he is already quite talented on the piano.  Here he is playing a beautiful piece by Rachmaninov.
