Nazreen Dhaul | Modesto Baby Portraits

A new little bundle came to the studio a few days ago for her newborn portrait session, the lovely Nazreen Dhaul. Both of Nazreen’s parents work in the medical field with her mom having a Ph.D. During our consultation we discussed their “signature” piece of artwork I would design for their home and they mentioned wanting to do something with a medical theme. With Nazreen already born and being two weeks old at the time of the consultation, I worked very quickly to design a warm, and artistic set piece that focused on little Nazreen while celebrating her parent’s passion for healthcare. I think it turned out very well.

We were also blessed to have Nazreen’s grandmother join us for the portrait session. While she didn’t have her image made she worked very hard behind the scenes, making the session a great success.

Nazreen is a beautiful baby girl, very sweet, and I consider myself fortunate to have had the opportunity to create her baby pictures. Below are Nazreen’s highlight slideshow and a sample of images from our portrait session. I hope you enjoy them.

It’s one of my great joys to be able to meet the beautiful babies of my past wedding couples when they come to the studio for newborn pictures. I photographed Cody and Ashleigh’s big day in May of 2016 at Vintage Gardens in Modesto. I was thrilled when Ashleigh told she was expecting and wanted to come by for newborn pictures when Ms. Lily finally arrived. We’d planned the session and the “signature” image I would create for Cody and Ashleigh about a month before Lily was due so I had time to get everything in order. In the end, Lily was 8 days late but completely worth the wait. She is absolutely beautiful and was a total joy to photograph at only four days old, the perfect age. The session was made even more special because we were joined by both sets of grandparents, Mark and Kim and Dwight and Beth. I love to see the happiness a baby brings to a family and Lily certainly has done just that.

The session was fun and as I mentioned Lily was wonderful. Below is a short highlight slideshow from the session and a few images. I hope you enjoy them and congratulations to the new mom and dad, Ashleigh and Cody.

Cute Baby Portraits

Cute baby portraits hunting

Benjamin is one of the cutest little dudes you’ll ever meet, and certainly one of the happiest, a smile was on his face almost the entire session. He had recently turned 8 months and his dad and aunt brought him by for portraits to capture the love and smiles that is Ben. As with all my children and newborn portraits I like to create a signature image that is particularly special to the family in some way and will hang with joy in the home. For Benjamin we decided to do something with a hunting theme, not the easiest theme for a little one, but I knew we could do something cute and age appropriate. Take some hunting lodge decor, a cute lumberjack style outfit, put it all on one of my hand made backgrounds, include an adorable little guy, and here’s what I came up with.

Hope you enjoy the slideshow and a few of the images from our cute baby portraits session.

Modesto Newborn Portraits

Modesto Newborn Portraits

One of the great joys of my job as a professional portrait and wedding photographer is getting the call, text or email that one of my wedding clients will soon be welcoming a beautiful son or daughter into the world. It’s such a blessing to be able to meet them at only a few days old and create images that will be cherished for a lifetime. Today I had the pleasure of meeting Ricardo Rafael Alcala. What a wonderful little guy!   He is such a happy baby with a perfect temperament which, if you know his parents, is just exactly what you would expect.  We had a wonderful time during the session. I hadn’t seen mom or dad in a little while so it was great catching up.  Even better, they brought a beautiful and really cute knit cap and diaper cover that worked perfectly with the look of some of the images. Loved It! Thank you guys so very much for letting me create the images of your new family!

Here are a few images from little Ricardo’s session, I hope you like them as much as I do…

Central Valley Newborn Portraits

Central Valley Newborn Portraits | Edward Mendes Photography

After a bit of a long wait this cute lil’ guy, Bryston, finally decided to said “Hello” to the world on July 6th 2016.  A few days later Mom and Dad brought him by the studio for his newborn portraits.  I try to create what I call a “signature” image for all of my newborns; something that is unique to each session and incorporates elements that helps to tell their story as a family. Bryston’s dad was an All-American basketball player and  played professionally overseas before coming back home to coach and develop at the youth level. Basketball is a large part of their lives so we decided to incorporate it into their “signature” image.  I think it turned out beautifully and I can’t wait to see it displayed in their home.  Leslie and Brice are wonderful and they have a handsome and sweet little dude in Bryston.  I’m honored to have had the opportunity to create his newborn portraits and can’t wait to see him grow up.  Here are a few images from the session.

Evangeline Ledbetter | Modesto Newborn Portraits

Modesto Newborn Portraits | Newborn wrapped in pink sleeping

This is Evangeline.  How cute is she?  Typically we like to schedule newborn sessions within the first week after birth (3-5 days is ideal) to ensure the little ones sleep soundly during the session and that they haven’t outgrown many of the boxes, buckets or hammocks I like to use during a newborn portrait session.  Evangeline was a bit older when her parents brought her by the studio for her session so I didn’t know exactly what to expect but she absolutely ROCK IT!  In fact it wasn’t just Evangeline who rocked the session but the entire family.  Angel, Charity and Julianna ALL did wonderfully and were a lot of fun to hang out with and get to know during the session. I love these images, especially those of Evangeline swaddled, she’s so sweet.  Thank you to Angel and Charity for coming by for the session.
