Newborn Safety – Simpler Pose

newborn chin on arms on purple background with cream and pearl headband

  This pose looks easy doesn’t it?  Most can do it from adults down to small children.  Even some babies can stay in this position.  However, a newborn’s neck muscles are not developed and cannot hold their heavy heads up.   Sometimes in this position the baby’s head can flop over to the side.  Depending on how the rest of their …

Sleeklens Review- Portrait Retouch

  I was on sleeklens‘ email subscriber list.  I don’t remember how I got myself on it.  In trying to simplify my life I got to being ruthless on my incoming emails and I unsubscribed.  Shortly afterwards, I received an email from Sleeklens requesting an honest review of their Portrait Retouch actions.  I had my choice of ones for Lightroom …

Flu Shot Time

I was never one to want an annual flu shot.  Since becoming a photographer, I get one.  I am holding and snuggling sweet little babies.  The last thing I would want is to get them sick with the flu.  Something I could handle, their little bodies could not.  Luckily I am married to this fabulous Pharmacist. I texted my husband …

    Last year, I found this flowerfield in the end of May.  A few photographers knew of it and we were able to get photos there with a ton of flowers.  July 1 of last year it made the local newspaper and everyone knew about it.  The rate the flowers became trampled was ridiculous.  It lasted about another 2-3 …

Benigno Newborn Theme: Elephants

  When Luke’s mom contacted me about a newborn session, I prompted her for theme or colors.  I knew the baby’s nursery was a jungle/safari theme.  I asked if she was thinking a monkey for the new baby?  She said that each one of her boys had an animal she associated in particular to go along with the theme.  Her …
