Newborn Shoot | Durango Child & Family Photographer

Looook at this sweet, sweet family.  I absolutely adore my job!  This is the lovely couple’s first babe.  Can’t ya tell:<)  And, the delightful grandparents got in on the act too.  Their first grand baby;<)  So welcome baby Finn!  Heaps of blessings your way…

This was shot in the family home.  And,  in my typical portrait photo journalistic style.   I truly love doing these shoots.  It really does create such a special moment in time for a family…  Enjoy!


Newborn, Child & Family Session | Durango Photographer

I just love this sweet little family.  I have been capturing their growth since Max was in his mommy’s belly.  This was shot at the family’s new home in Mancos, Colorado.  They were originally headed to Durango, but it got to big for them.  I tend to agree.  Mancos is quaint, quiet and all Colorado!  Thanks again for allowing me into your home and your lives…stay in touch.  xxxooo~SAB

When the loverly Heather contacted me for a maternity shoot, I was way more than excited.  Then, when she said she was due in less than 2 weeks, lets just say I was a little nervous with 5 upcoming shoots already scheduled, kids to feed, friends to host, the kid’s gymnastics, ballet, soccer, and violin lessons.  And then, when she called to cancel 1 then 2 of our booked dates because her son was sick, um  I was CRAZY.   Just giving you a hard time Heather, we got it in didn’t we, I bet you knew all along:<)

Heather sent me 2 classic black and white maternity poses she had done for her previous 2 pregnancies and was hoping to have me deliver the 3rd (not literally).  Honestly, I love the classic black cloth black and white maternity shots.  They are timeless…

So here is a quick collage of a few of her black and white images and then I actually got her outside for a few more.  Thanks Heather.  it was lovely meeting you and your beautiful family, inside and out.  I love your guys community in Bayfield.  How cool!


meet Baby M.  so strong and spry for a newborn.  she was awake the whole time and even got prone on elbows. i’ve never seen a newborn more eager to be in the world:<) we only had an hour with this little one, so unable to get those sleeping baby shots we all know and love. but, we did get some precious “pea in the pod” moments and a few dreamy ones. thanks mom.
