Montrose-Verdugo City Annual Oktoberfest 2015

Montrose Newborn & Family Photographer, Pasadena Newborn & Family Photographer, Glendale Photographer, Los Angeles Newborn & Family Photographer, Portrait Photographer, best photographer. Guten Morgen.  Guten Tag. Guten Abend. and Gute Nacht!

This year's annual Oktoberfest was sure to bring the beer and the sausage! More importantly it was sure to bring neighbors, friends, and families together! But I won't be writing a whole post on Oktoberfest, because I was not asked to. What I was asked however is to photograph the event.

Without further due, The Montrose-Verdugo City Oktoberfest 2015!

Serious Cuteness!

Dear Photo lovers, today I have the distinct pleasure of introducing you to this little munchkin, who's officially 10 days new!

I think we can all agree: His hair & cheeks, should earn him a spot on the cover of every baby magazine in the nation! Seriously, I'm practically melting from cuteness overload!

Anyway, as you can see from the pictures below, he and I had one of the best sessions together. His mom, Cori prepared by trying to keep him awake for 2 hours prior to our session. Her preparation efforts allowed us to have an especially awesome shoot together.

This little guy slept through 80% of the session. And when he wasn't sleeping, he was happy, calm, relaxed, and cuddly. He couldn’t have been any better.

“I was 2 days away from my due date, but I was very relaxed.” says Cori.

Because the shoot went so well, I asked Cori if she would share one helpful piece of advice with other mothers planning a newborn session (See – I've got your back, moms around the world). Her biggest piece of advice is: “Schedule Early! I waited till last minute."

Without further adieu,

Why I LOVE Making MY OWN PROPS?

FullSizeRender Photography props are very important for both the photographer and the client. As the photographer I want to deliver exactly what my client desires. The look of the photos are of highest importance to my clients. If you want a timeless classic look, or something more bohemian, props make that happen.

If you know me personally, you will know that I am a mini "Mother Nature" type of person. I buy fluoride free toothpaste. I shop ONLY at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods.  I believe the cure to anything can be found in nature, and I have a reverse osmosis water filtration system. In a nutshell, I like things "ORGANIC" & "OLD SCHOOL".

So why make my own props? Simple. It is the easiest way to bring all of that into my photography. When I am making my own props, I envision a part of myself in that prop. Whether I am crocheting a hat, a blanket, or a wrap, or gluing flowers on head bands, IT-IS-ME! At that point I have created something completely unique. Something that only I can offer. And that transforms over into my photography. When I see a pice of art in my clients nursery or bedroom, and the baby in the photo is wrapped in the wrap that I hand made, and the tie back that I created, I feel the greatest joy!

Do you have a personal prop or family heirloom that you would like to use in your session? I want to know about it! What is it? Do you have a picture of it? Why is it so important? What is the STORY behind it?  Post below, or email me: MashaGPhotog@gmail.com I'd love to hear from you!
