Wrapped Mini Newborn Session!

Wrapped newborn mini sessions are such a great way to get some sweet family and/or baby photos without the expense or time commitment of a full session! Mini newborn sessions are one hour and always in studio. You can see the pricing options for mini sessions here.

During a mini session baby is never naked or clothed in an outfit (these can be difficult and may take so much time that we only get one or two poses so I reserve those for full sessions). I generally swaddle baby in a neutral color or a swaddle that matches their skin tone and then it’s easy to switch out a second swaddle on top so we can move quickly through the setups and get the most variety possible.

There’s a baby only option, but they opted to do family as well!

Mini sessions generally include 3-6 setups, depending on how well the baby does! We did family, mom/baby, dad/baby, plus one prop and 2 blanket backdrops. Getting different angles (above) can give you a different look and changing out the swaddle (like below) is easy to do to get a little more variety. posed, newborn, photography, session, photo shoot, houston, texas, kelli nicole photography, baby boy, newborn photography, houston newborn photographer, studio, baby boy, newborn posing, newborn photography, studio newborn lighting, paul c buff einstein lighting, newborn photographer houston, newborn mini session, blue and white posed, newborn, photography, session, photo shoot, houston, texas, kelli nicole photography, baby boy, newborn photography, houston newborn photographer, studio, baby boy, newborn posing, newborn photography, studio newborn lighting, paul c buff einstein lighting, newborn photographer houston, newborn mini session, blue and white

Email Issues!

It’s come to my attention that some emails from clients didn’t come through yesterday, even though they were in the same thread as others that DID come through. I don’t know if this is an ongoing problem, but I’ll be investigating and if I haven’t responded to an email from you please send another one and CC to kellinicole24@gmail.com.

Walcott Wedding

I’ve been photographing L and her kids for several years now and as much as I was looking forward to her wedding I really had no idea how wonderful it would be!  The night before the big day I got to photograph the rehearsal dinner on this boat in Lake Tahoe.  It was gorgeous!  I admit I was a bit paranoid about my gear, but everything made it back on land safely.

It was such a fun and joyous party!  I guessed it would be a good indicator of the wedding day and I was right!

After we docked I got to sit on the beach and watch the sunset.  What a day :).

The next day had a lot in store for us!  Everything came together so well.  Every detail was stunning.  Thanks so much to my second shooter, Eva, for helping me out all day!  She was amazing.

The guys were not too shabby!

But I think the ladies take the cake in the looks department.

The wedding was held in a beautiful chapel with huge windows, every photographers dream :).

What a beautiful family!!

Everyone should have friends that are this musically talented.

One of my favorite shots.  Love this little guy!

The food was amazing!

Dancing on the beach at sunset :).  What could be better?  We may have crashed a proposal to get these shots…

This was one of the happiest weddings I’ve ever been to and I’m so glad I was able to be there!  I love you guys!

Upcoming Travel

Hello, friends!  In the near future I’ll be going on some photography-specific trips and it’s about time I let you all know about them!

July 19th-22nd I’m headed to Utah (SLC/Provo) and would love to do a few more sessions.

August 23rd-27th I’ll be in the San Francisco bay area as well as Sacramento and Tahoe.  My time will be extremely limited, but I’d love to do some more sessions if possible!

I have a tentative trip to New Jersey sometime between October-December as I have some wonderful clients that are moving there.  This trip is not set, but please let me know if you’d be interested in doing a session.

 

If anyone is interested in doing a session (or just hanging out!) please contact me at kelli@kellinicolephotography.com.  I’d love to hear from you!

And because a blog post of mine isn’t complete without something beautiful, I give you  a favorite from a recent session.

Katie’s Bridals

Congratulations Jeff & Katie on your big day today!!!

We (Koree and I) shot Katie’s bridals back in June and I was so excited to be able to post them!  Maybe my favorite bridals EVER.  I love her birdcage veil.

It was such a fun shoot!

See how happy she is?!?  This was at the end of the shoot when we were fighting off mosquitoes!  She’s a trooper!
