look-who-just-hatched-webYou know that heart pounding feeling when you come upon an idea and can’t wait to bring it to fruition? And the pure proud elation when you finally see your passionately envisioned idea come alive in the final product? Yup! And Yup! I’ve been itching to make a belly cast, photograph a baby in her mommy’s belly cast, and create an art piece out of it.  I mean, what better way to remember your baby’s first home!  Having a background in Fine Arts, and a life long love of creativity in different forms, I look forward to any opportunity to create something beautiful. While photography definitely offers a great outlet for my creativity, the act of creating something with my hands, is pure joy.  And now my mind is bursting with all the possibilities to make belly casts into beautiful pieces of art that you can proudly display in your home!

Here are some images that show my idea-to-art story!

Introducing … The {Fresh} 48 Newborn Sessions!

I am excited to be offering {Fresh} 48 newborn sessions!  These sessions are perfect for those who  love the idea of capturing those first precious moments, but don’t like the idea of having their labor or birth photographed. The first cuddles, first diaper change, first meeting with siblings or grandparents…unforgettable moments that will pass in the blink of an eye.

  • The {Fresh} 48 is a lifestyle session that takes place during daylight hours, within the first 48 hours of birth. It will include parents, siblings or other close family present. There will be no posing or props.
  • It can take place at the hospital, birth center or at home and will last approximately 60-90 minutes.
  • Included are 20 digital images printable to 8”x 10”, with print release.
  • 1 Facebook timeline cover.
  • You may choose to add on a custom 6”x 6” keepsake album with 10 pages, documenting those first precious moments. You can even include a letter to your newborn baby, telling them about the day they were born.

These sessions are booked in advance so that I am available within the first two days after birth, during daytime hours, as soon as you call! This means I will arrange my schedule 2 weeks prior to and after your due date, to accommodate your session.

If you are pregnant and considering a {Fresh 48} session – BOOK NOW! Please email me : photographer@rekhaphoto.com

Double the LOVE : Newborn Twins, Vancouver, Washington

Emerlee and Clair… I love their names!  And such perfect, happy little babies! Good sleepers too …just not at the same time 🙂 And oh, the smiles!! An absolute treat! It’s amazing how they each have their own personality even as newborns. I look forward to watching them grow.

It was very special, being able to capture these tender moments and the beginning of a journey. Erin, you have made such beautiful babies! They are truly twice the joy, twice the love, twice the blessing. I enjoyed every minute of being with them!

These cute little cream diaper covers and hats were made by the oh-so-talented Lisa Powers @ She’s Crafty Crochet (https://www.facebook.com/Shescraftycrochet). Thank you Lisa!
