santa barbara newborn photographer – Fors family portraits

This precious soul came into the world on Christmas Eve. These photographs of baby R and his sweet mom and dad were taken when he was less than two weeks old. It was our first portrait session of 2013 and a perfect way to kick things off!

I say it every time, but newborn portraits are my absolute favorite (though I love families, maternity, couples and weddings too)! I feel so lucky to get to meet such beautiful brand new babies and to begin to document their story. I hope you enjoy all this cuteness! Happy Friday!

UPDATE 1-22: This is officially our most popular post so far thanks to little R’s many adoring fans! The post has 82 likes and counting… wow! Carly was so sweet to write this fantastic photographer review on our Santa Barbara yelp business page. It makes me feel so great to receive positive feedback like this, and I feel blessed to be in this creative field where I am able to connect with people and families during such special times.

“We had Jewel come to our home to take photos of our 13-day-old newborn and cannot say enough about how wonderful she was.  She was so patient with our baby and very understanding of his needs.  She was able to capture some of the most amazing pictures, both when he was asleep and awake.  Jewel came with many great props of her own and was open to us incorporating our own props into the photos.  We also asked for specific poses and she was able to capture exactly what we were asking without any hesitation.   We would HIGHLY recommend Paul and Jewel for any photo shoot.  We will undoubtedly be booking our 6 and 12 month photos with them!  Thank you for such a great day and a wonderful experience!” – Carly F
