ford ~ newborn lifestyle session

79paigeknudsen.com

possibly my most challenging, yet most rewarding as well, sessions that i shoot are lifestyle newborn.

challenging in that i load up my suburban with props & blankets, a space heater, mohair wraps, and perhaps a tufted chair or vintage dough bowl.

challenging in that i essentially walk into a new technical situation as far as lighting & other techy things photographers need to master.

challenging in that newborn sessions are quite possibly the most unscripted & unscheduled of all sessions.

oh but….

so rewarding in that all the props & blankets are just extras for this beautiful little fresh new gift from heaven.

so rewarding in that photographing inside the intimacy & familiarity of the family’s home is so natural & organic.

so rewarding in that newborns are simply delicious and their sweet features change daily.

~~~

i absolutely love the lifestyle newborn sessions i’ve been honored to photograph this past year. each one is so unique. each one is simply so lovely & heavenly.

for more information regarding these sessions please email inquiries to paigeknudsenimages@comcast.net as well as via this post featuring abe & his family. you may also view abe’s birth story that i absolutely LOVED photographing here.

current crush~midweek edition & a discount

85paigeknudsen.com

i usually run my current crush posts on fridays but since blogging with any scheduling regularity has flown right out the window i figured tuesday was just as good a day as any. and you all already know i don’t always follow the rules! ha!

i love photographing product. product sits still & obeys me. i don’t get sweaty and rip my jeans while photographing product. and when i’m done i usually get to play with said product. this last batch of goodness from carol & company literally had me swooning.

for starters i needed a new phone case. i’m sorta picky about phone cases and love that this one feels nice in my hand & shows the gold color of my phone. that may sound sorta picky, we are only talking about a phone case for crying out loud, but let’s face it, that baby is almost always in my hand. so looking nice & feeling nice are definitely a perk for me.

despite my love & possible addiction to my phone, i hope our generation can keep the art of handwritten notes & journals alive & well. i’ve always had a special love of beautiful stationary & cards. did i tell you i used to own a gift shop? handwritten notes are truly an art & a little bit of a labor of love. we all get so tickled when something beautiful arrives in the mail. when we feel loved & appreciated because someone took the time to go to the store/pick out a card or piece of stationary/ go home & write some love / & then stick a stamp on it. the colors of this entire latest release from rifle & co are just lovely and so very cheerful.

texasaggiemom - I just wanted to say thank you for your blog. I love the decorating tips, your crushes, your photography and your heart. Your holiday tour has been on my fave pin board forever and I finally took the plunge to simplify our living room with a lot of white paint and a lot of love. Thank you again for the inspiration. http://www.bluejeansandturquoise.com/2015/09/1980s-brick-fireplace-paint-makeover.html
