the laytons / sacramento family session

This is the second time the beautiful Layton family has graced my blog! Last year I photographed them in the middle of a field and this year, a rose garden. I love the bright tones at this location but even more, I love the way these kiddos snuggle right into their parents and how little Oliver is always willing to be my light-tester. Another fun morning with these four; can't wait for the next!

cooper / newborn

This was intended to be a newborn session for week-old Cooper but as soon as I arrived, big bro Colt decided this session was meant for him. He was happy to show me his new little brother, but even happier to show me his room and his bike and how good he is at climbing into Cooper's crib.

Once it was time to shift the attention to Cooper, all of my newborn portrait dreams came true. He laid there wide awake and calm as ever, no need for a swaddle or pacifier. This, plus THE LIGHT in their home, made for the perfect in-home documentary session. Photographing this family never gets old.

Congrats on the perfect genes, Chrissy + Daniel.
