Baby C’s 6 Month Milestone | Bay Area Baby Photographer | Oakland, CA

One of my favorite perks of my job is seeing all of these beautiful babies grow! I’ve heard people say being a newborn and baby photographer can be a hazardous occupation because you always have baby fever. But to me, it’s the perfect baby-fix: I get to have fun with them for a couple of hours, coo over how adorable they are, then send them back with Mom and Dad as I await our next photo-play-date.

Recently, the Oooldman and I got to see this sweet baby, along with her mom, dad, big brother and god parents. Anytime we get together with this family, it’s more than just a photo shoot, or portrait reveal, it’s good ol’ quality time for everyone– another perk to the job.

We’ll get together again in about 6 months to do her 1st Year Portraits and Cake Smash, and I’ve already been putting together the details to tie in this precious series of shots.

Fall Mini-Sessions 2016

fallminissmpl-6

It’s been awhile since TeAirra Mitchell Photography has had a Mini-Session event, but I really miss hosting them. The kids are always so full of personality and the galleries are just so adorable to edit! Since the time for holiday cards and personalized gifts are quickly approaching, I figured why not have Fall Mini-Sessions?

What are the 2016 Fall Minis?

2016 Fall Mini-Sessions will be at an outdoor location in Oakland that has a variety of backgrounds perfect for capturing little ones in their fall attire. With trees, tall grass, and a beautiful sky background,  the Fall Mini-Session galleries are sure to have images that you can’t help but swoon over.

All Fall Mini-Sessions are short and sweet at 20-minutes long, and will highlight the personality of the mini-people in your life. For these minis, we’ve done away with props and busy backdrops so that the kiddos are what make the images truly unique. To create a fall feel, each image will be custom edited to bring out the colors of the season, giving your artwork a clean and natural look.

The little model in our test shoot (my darling daughter) was showing off her “pretty dress” from Posh Peanut Children’s Boutique where they have a beautiful variety of gorgeous dresses, rompers, and accessories for any little girl’s photo shoot. For ideas on what your little one can wear to their Fall Mini-Session, check out this fall-inspired style board we put together on Pinterest. As always, remember that you can reach out to us for a complimentary pre-consultation so we can bounce around wardrobe ideas for your mini-session.

Baby Photography – Bay Area Portrait Photographer [3 month session]

My love for photography grew the moment I was able to start snapping pictures of my newborn daughter. It was as if I instantly felt my calling to become a professional portrait photographer as soon as I took that first snapshot of her.

Of course, I needed a portfolio, so I did a few free sessions, and held a couple model calls.

One of my maternity models also won a newborn session, and from that newborn session, she told me how she wanted to be able to document the first year of her daughter’s life.

“That’s perfect!” I was so excited, I probably literally yelled at her!

I’d been wanting to do milestone sessions for awhile, I just hadn’t met a parent that was interested yet.

But now, the journey has begun, and I get to keep seeing this adorable little girl every 3 months to capture all the adorable new things she can do as she grows! Then, for her 1st Birthday, we’ll have a cake smash!

Take a moment to enjoy the adorable-ness!

Family Photography [San Leandro, CA], The Garland Girls – TeAirra Mitchell Photography

I recently had the pleasure of capturing a beautiful Mommy-Daughter duo.

The two of them together was a pair of never-ending laughs, giggles, snuggles, and kisses. Just watching them interact during the short time we were together, I could tell they were the best of friends.

We met at Lake Chabot, in San Leandro, CA, and I pretty much snapped away as they enjoyed their time together. That’s how strong their connection was: I had to do very little work!

Working on their gallery was such a pleasure because I have a little girl, who I’m hoping will grow into one of my closest friends (once we pass the bratty stages lol).

If you’re a mommy to a little girl, and you’re looking at these photos, I hope they warm your heart as much as they did mine.

Family Photography [Fremont, CA] – TeAirra Mitchell Photography

Fall has arrived, and the colors have set in, making for beautiful family portraits!

During the month of October, I ran a Fall Family Special, and had the privilege of working with several wonderful families.

This family in particular, had a knack for comedy– all four of them!

We had a great time at Shinn Park in Fremont, and the weather  was perfect for fall photos.

Have a look for yourself!
