Finn, Nora & family

So Ian emailed me a few months ago saying he wanted to surprise his wife for her birthday, by flying their family out from Florida for some family pictures! Is that not the cutest surprise EVER? He gave her a map to Utah to open on her birthday and that is how he told her. Talk about a little pressure. And of course the day they came in, was sooooooooo freaking cold and dark outside we didn’t get to shoot long outside. Luckily little Nora was so awesome and smiled for the whole session! These guys were so much fun to shoot and glad their little kiddo’s got to see snow for the first time:) Enjoy!

Beautiful family, beautiful work!

Wow – look at the eyes on those beautiful babies!

 ( Nov 22nd, 2010 5:55 pm)

These shots are fantastic. The parents sure have great fashion sense for their kids. Their kids must be amazingly well-behaved, for the son to wear a blazer without complaint and for the lil one to wear a headband and not try to take it off. Great family to work with, I bet! :)

Gorgeous work as always…love them all!!! Where did you find the backdrop used for the family photo? Denny? Which one? I have been having such a hard time finding a neutral backdrop in browns that I “love” and I love this one but can’t seem to find it. Help!

Tracy Murphy Eder 

WOW, the pictures couldn’t be any more Beautiful!! You’re right Amanda, the one of Finn & Nora together is absolutely precious!
Love them all. So glad you guys gad a great time in Utah and the kids got to see snow. Way to plan a special trip Ian!

SO BEAUTIFUL!! Each and every shot is just amazing. Such beautiful kids! Wow!

Ian - Amanda's Husband 

Well, I guess I get credit for planning the trip but Katie and Dan get all the credit for making it a success. Great job you two! It was truly worth it!!!

Lindsay Banner 

Why I am getting all emotional looking at these pictures!! I LOVE these!! What a GREAT husband Ian is!! Amanda and Ian are what make Banner Boutique so fun!! Thanks for doing such an AMAZING job on their pictures!! You guys ROCK!!!

 ( Nov 16th, 2010 8:54 pm)
Amanda 

Thank you so much, Katie and Dan. I just love these and I can’t say how grateful we are. That picture of my two sweet babies together is priceless! It was an amazing experience and you two are phenomenal. Nora was a terror on the flights home, but it was all worth it. I’d do it again in a heartbeat!

 ( Nov 16th, 2010 3:31 pm)
Judy Perez - Amanda's mom 

OK… I have to admit that when the kids told us they were going to Utah for a photo shoot, I couldn’t help but wonder (and hold my tongue), “Utah? What’s wrong with the photographers we have in Florida? Why go all the way to Utah for…photos???”

BUT, after seeing these, I can understand what Amanda was talking about. They are amazing, as are all the ones below them.

They had a great time on their little “photo vacation”. Finn got to see snow for the 1st time. Ian was sweet to plan all this out. What a great son-in-law! What a sweet family! What a proud Nani.

How sweet is that guy?! What a gorgeous family!

 ( Nov 16th, 2010 12:46 pm)
Gloria 

What a guy to do this for his wife…and family! So many shots are great, but the one with Mom and daughter second row from bottom is beautiful and touching! Almost brought tears to my eyes….something so innocent and pure about it. Hope you enjoyed your trip, and amazing photos as usual. I am one of the many who look forward to each new posting and it’s usually one of the highlights of my day when I see something new! What a gift

Well it’s official…you are my favorite photographer! Amazing work! Do you mind if I ask what kind of lighting you use? I bought a lighting kit with daylight balanced lamps but the color isn’t soft and warm like your studio work! Your images are to die for!

Katie, I hear the newborn nest works waaay better then a bean bag. But haven’t tried for myself. But your boppy seems to be doing awesome! Here’s a link on it.

New Video Tutorial

This is how I do the “Hands Under The Chin” pose. I’m sure there are other ways, but I thought I would share my “technique”.
A special thanks to Dave and Alisha for letting me use their sweet little baby and for my awesome brother for making the video.
He filmed a lot of this newborn session so I will post more poses later:)

* THANKS FOR EVERYONE’S KIND WORDS. I WILL BE POSTING ANOTHER ONE SOON!

 
Melissa Gilmore 

I just loved your video so much, and it taught me so much. I’m not sure why you pulled it down but, I’d love to share it with a fellow photographer on how to pose newborns. Is there anyway you’d post it again?

Thanks,
Melissa

What kind of pillow/beanbag do you have them sitting in? I have tried this like a million times and CAN’T get it to work. Your photos are beautiful and I would LOVE to learn how to do this!

Thank you so much for posting this video. I to would love it if your did a class on baby posing. You are amazing. A quick question. What are you using underneath the newborn. Is it better to have a hard surface for the elbow to hold the weight or a soft surface? Thanks!

 ( Nov 12th, 2010 9:53 pm)

Where do you get the tiny headbands??? They are perfect for new babies!

That was so fun to watch! I’m not a photographer in the least bit, so it’s really fun to see just how you do what you do. I can’t wait to see more of you working your magic.

 ( Nov 12th, 2010 9:05 am)
Heidi Childs 

haha that video is hilarious i love that you rock them to sleep on their hands. I still think you must have the magic touch though because i’m pretty sure they are not nearly as cooperative for me!

Hi,
I made the flowers with old vintage paper. The girl who owns Trendy Tots in the riverwoods made some for Skye’s studio and so I copied them from her. She might be willing to sell some to you?!?

 ( Nov 9th, 2010 5:08 am)

some time if the baby isn’t as cooperative as this one, I will do a composite:) We will try to do a video of the studio one of these days:)

Whoa! You did that so fast! What a cute video! Thank you for sharing this Kate! I noticed you jiggled her head a little bit. I was just watching a new mom at a baby shower the other night and she was jiggling her baby on her lap and I was thinking how that motion makes me sleepy too. I fall asleep while rocking my baby to sleep every night. Never thought to use it for this pose! Great idea!

Daxton & Bronx

This was such a fun shoot, the boys were adorable and of course Dad was STARVING so we ordered sushi during this 3 hr newborn shoot.
I’m going to have to make this a tradition on these newborn shoots, everyone is much happier with a little food:)

I just had my brother film a newborn shoot I did a couple weeks ago and will be posting parts to my blog soon. I have been getting a lot of emails on how to do this shot and it is hard to explain through email so I figured a video will be easier. I will try to get it posted this next week.

Do you mind sharing the link to where you got the 1st little boys hat (pageboy) in this post? It’s gorgeous and I’m always looking for boys hats. Thank you so much!

 ( Nov 8th, 2010 1:15 am)
katie 

Hey Ela,
Yes we have a platform that we shoot on. My husband made frames out of wood that we stapled the fabric too. We set the frames behind the platform. I will make a video to show what I’m talking about:)

 ( Nov 7th, 2010 5:32 pm)
Ela 

Hey :)
Just got a couple faux backdrops from pepperlu and LOVE them- (thanks to your advertising :) but I can’t figure out a good way to hang them… Nervous about ripping the material. Also- how do you get the bottom to be straight w the floor? is your flooring elevated and your backdrop is hanging behind it??? It looks so great! Sorry for asking you tons of questions…

 ( Nov 7th, 2010 8:47 am)

Nice! Can’t wait to see the videos! I’m dying over the boy’s hat! Love it!

So either you just recently added that video or I just totally missed it last time. How funny and cute! And No I suck I didn’t dress up Allie. She’s not allowed to go out (besides getting pictures lol) of the house for another month so we left her home with Daves mom. Again love the video!
