I met Carson’s mom at my studio, when she was still expecting this precious bundle of joy! We talked at length about their family and what they loved :) This family enjoys travelling and being outdoors, so of course, we made sure to plan a few images to represent that!

This photo session reflects on such a special and wonderful time in their lives…but I would rather share with you what Carson’s mom shared with me in her own words:

“…To prepare for the session, I reviewed your blog and the helpful paperwork that you provided multiple times. I also looked at other family/newborn photos online that I showed you before the photo session.

We wanted to capture a precious and fleeting time in our lives not only for ourselves but to share with our son when he is older as well as family and friends.
The reviews and photos on your blog were excellent. And after meeting you in person, you seemed warm and genuine and that you took a lot of pride in your work as well as pleasing your clients.
We are very happy! You are able to provide unique, high quality, as well as, artistic photos and talent.

I would not be able myself to assess the best angles, lighting, poses compared to someone with years of experience and talent.
And we are very pleased and feel that you captured exactly what we wanted! Our family photos were candid and the posed photos were absolutely adorable.”

I, myself, am so grateful to have an opportunity to work with this family on their children and family photography and become friends! I am looking forward to watching these boys grow every year and turn into handsome young men :)

Welcome beautiful Avery and Claire! It was such a joy working with this family and these precious little angels in my studio for their newborn portraits. Twins photo session was a little challenging but despite it all we were able to create most beautiful memories for the family to treasure! Here is what the twins mom had shared with me recently:

…”I knew that I wanted to have high quality, beautiful portraits taken of my newborn twins even before they were born. It was so important to me to capture the moments in their newborn life in a meaningful way. 

And your photos are more than just photos; they are art. As I looked at photos on your blog before the girls were born, I instantly felt a connection to the style of photography you provide and knew you would provide the highest quality photos. 

The quality of your photos is beyond what I would ever have expected, and I felt that paying for this excellent quality was worth it. Working with you was much better than I could imagine I could do myself (or anyone else I imagine could do) given your expertise with newborn posing and your expertise in actually taking beautiful photos. I also believe that your patience with newborns and allowance for additional session days as needed is something unique to the service you provide compared to other photographers. 

Your attention to detail with posing/backgrounds/lighting excelled anything I would have ever been able to do myself.  
Working with you was so easy and made the process so enjoyable: I utilized the advice you gave me, and made sure we had plenty of food for the girls. I also made sure that the session was timed well with the girls schedule such that we could feed them and have them fall asleep right at the beginning of the session in your studio. 

I now have beautiful photos of my newborn twin girls which I have been able to display all over my house, and I couldn’t be happier with your work and the resultant photos. Most people who have come to visit and have seen the photos cannot believe how beautiful the photos have turned out, including people who recently had children and used other photographers. Looking at the photos everyday brings back so many good memories about the girls in their newborn period. I can’t say enough about how happy I was to work with you for these photos. 

Now the girls are a little older and the girls’ as mom shared, they “love colorful toys that make noise, and they love to listen to music and kick their feet to the music ! As a family, we like to go for walks in wash park and enjoy spending time in the mountains. 

The girls are smiling, laughing, cooing, and are gaining much better head control as they become more interactive with the world. I am proud of both of my girls for being so happy and meeting their developmental milestones despite being born a month early!”

And I am so happy to stay in touch and get to know how the girls are doing now. :) I already can’t wait to see them for our next photo session when the girls are sitting up!

Denver Newborn Baby PhotographerNewborn Baby Photography in Denver, CO //Harper {5 days old}

I fell in love with this family, for many reasons… I was counting the days to hear the news about Harper’s birth… I was so excited to meet Harper, that I stayed in touch and kept checking in :) I am so happy to welcome Harper into this world and capture these priceless first portraits for her family to treasure!

Please, allow me to share with you what Harper’s mom wrote to me, the words that brought happy tears to my eyes… and not because of the appreciation, gratitude and admiration of my work, but the way they feel about their first daughter, Harper. Here it is :

“As I searched for a newborn photographer in Denver your work absolutely stood above any other photographer’s work that I could find.  When I ran across your website I immediately knew that I wanted to have you photograph our baby girl. I have always dreamed to have my baby photographed in this way.  The art behind your newborn photography is fascinating to me.  As a child, I was in love with Anne Geddes photography.  I had all of her books.  Your work reminded me of her work.

 Marina, you were immensely helpful during the preparation process as well as photo session. I was impressed that you had spent over a couple of hours with me when we first met to discuss doing a session.  Then you spent a lot of time with me making sure colors were right, that you were taking shots that I would personally connect with and making sure I like the background and props.  I wanted to capture the love of us as parents and then I also wanted beautiful photos of her. I went with lighter color clothing because I like a more natural look.  I choose the accessories and props based on what I thought went best with our home and her nursery.  And you took to heart the photos that I sent you via Pinterest and you made it your mission to ensure that captured exactly what we wanted.
The results are fantastic.  You captured incredible photos of our little angel and we will cherish these photos forever.  Your work is art that is well beyond photography.  How you mold the baby and work with the baby during the session is truly amazing. I am in awe of your talent and the work that you produce.
The session captures a complete change in our lives.  It is incredibly special to welcome our little girl into our lives.  Words can’t describe the feeling.  We are looking forward to taking long walks on the beach with our little Harper, spending time on the water, teaching her to swim and spending time hiking and enjoying the snowy mountains in the winter. I am most proud to just be her mom.  She adds tremendous joy into our lives and offers us a love that is incomparable to anything we have experienced.”

Welcome Levi! His loving and beautiful family now is feeling even more happy and content with Levi’s arrival :) Here is what Levi’s mommy shared with me:

“…I wanted to capture my son as a newborn. Within six weeks he doubled in size (weight and length).  All I have left of that special stage in his life are these beautiful photos. These photos represent innocence, a new beginning, life changes and love. I will never have him at that stage again; it lasted for only so long. I fully regret not doing the same for my first child.

When I first met you, at that promotional photo event, my daughter was getting her photos taken and I was about 7 months pregnant. You brought some of your professional work with you. Looking at them, I knew that I would not pass up a chance to capture my second child as a newborn.

You helped me prepare for this session tremendously by meeting with my husband and I ahead of time.  When we met about a month before my son’s due date, we went over the costs and discussed expectations of the photo shoot on both our ends (ie: when to arrive, how long the session will take, the different poses we will use, props to accessorize the shoot, etc.). We wanted to capture the feeling. So when we started choosing the props, we chose what felt right and what came to us.

We also saved dates in the calendar. I was relieved to know that we didn’t just save one date. Rather you saved about a week in your schedule.  This was done so that after the baby was born we had some flexibility on when to have the session. The calendar block helped out a lot because not only did I need a little more time to heal from the delivery post hospital stay, my husband was working and his schedule wasn’t as flexible.

And now, I am so pleased with the results. The photos are sharp and clear. The props used and the way the baby was positioned in the photos look timeless. The photos remind me of how far we have come and how precious those moments were; the purpose of taking these photos was fulfilled.

This session reflects on innocence, the early stages of my baby’s life, the sweet moments I had alone with him postpartum, the wonderful changes in our family’s life, and a new love.

I am proud that my baby was healthy and thriving at that age; that was the most important thing to me. Now at a little over 2 months, he lifts his head up, he can recognize faces, he is cooing and cawing, and he is finally sleeping long hours at night (almost 6 hours!).

We didn’t quite get ready for the session. I had an outfit for my daughter to wear for the “sibling” part and my husband and I cleaned up (showered, did our hair, applied very little makeup). We wanted the inspiration to come to us in the moment. I am not one to prepare every single detail as it takes away from the natural feeling of taking photos. In the end, the results were perfect. The portraits turned out easy-going, relaxed, spontaneous; it captured a beautiful feeling and a beautiful moment.”

I had a great time with this family, creating precious photographs of their second daughter. As always I loved every minute of this experience and sounds like the family did too :) Here is what they wanted to share with the blog readers:

“This time we wanted to truly celebrate the birth of our second daughter. For the first child 7 years ago we went with a much simpler and cheaper photo studio and the results were quiet disappointing. Marina gave us the results we could just dream about: superb quality, amazing props, beautiful backgrounds. And her gentle approach, patience and knowledge with our baby and with our family were unprecedented. We really were looking for the best of the best. Several friends referred us to Marina as THE premiere Denver baby photographer. The portfolio was very representative of Marina’s work: beautiful poses, the cutest props that highlight each baby’s best features. No other photographer we considered came close.

Marina provided her extensive expertise in the area of baby photography. She gently and carefully worked for literally hours to make each pose just perfect. The photo equipment she used was high end which provided us with the most clear high resolution images.

We love the images we ended up with! Our baby looks even more beautiful then in real life! What a wonderful keepsake!

Marina took her time preparing us for the session. She explained what kind of clothing and colors would look best for each member of the photo session and how colors should be combined to look their best. It was really helpful to me as I have a very limited understanding of the photo process and what looks best with what on print. It was fun to take her recommendations and go shopping for those special looks for the entire family!

At this point my baby is 4 weeks old and she is starting to hold her head up, she recognizes various noises and seems to be recognizing family members. Spending time with daddy seems to be her favorite time: she studies his face with her eyes and smiles!

We spend a lot of time as a family. We really like traveling, going to the movies, ride bikes together and hike.

This session to me is a beautiful opportunity to freeze a moment in time when my kind are so young and we are one big family. I am sure the beautiful images that Marina captured will be treasured for years to come!”
