2014 in Pictures {Little Earthling Photography}

2014 was a great year for Little Earthling Photography.

In 2014 I had the honor and privilege of capturing the births of: Micah, Zoe, Odessa, Crosby, Willow, Odin, Eliana, Wyatt Kingstyn and Dita.

I also did maternity photos for four of those sweet babies.

I did newborn sessions for Jude, James, Cian, Tanis, Chloe and Levi, Wyatt and Odin.

I photographed six Superheros: James, Mila, Melanie and Cody, Mordecai and Avi.

I did an lifestyle session with Emily and Kathleen and the Einfeld family, engagement photos for Ben and Adalia and Jon and Jessica, family photos for the Portreys and Felmleys, and a Frozen party.

Recently I got to spent the morning cuddling sweet, newborn James.  His big brother, Calvin, was the first baby whose birth I ever photographed. Calvin and his siblings will always have a special place in my heart.

I’m a firm believer that photo shoots should be fun…and it was obvious that Calvin and Emma agreed with me!

Calvin was so sweet and tender with James and was always eager to help. I can  tell he is an amazing big brother.

He also liked to make silly faces for my camera…

…which little Emma was more than happy to imitate.

I even got a few smiles out of James…though he had the knack for smiling just after he heard my shutter click…

Sweet, peeling baby  toes…

*sigh*

It took some work and sweat, but I managed to get all three kiddos (four, two and newborn) looking at the camera. Okay, so James wasn’t looking at the camera, but we’ll cut him some slack since he was only a week old.

Congratulation, Sarah and Jake! I had so much fun hanging out with your sweet little family.

Hey Baby {Bellingham Newborn Photographer}

Bellingham newborn photographer Renee Bergeron Little Earthing Photography

One of my favorite parts of being a newborn photographer (besides getting to hold beautiful babies) it the challenge of capturing each baby in their own home. In most cases I have no idea what the environment with be like when I show up to do newborn photos. I take a quick look at the area and get to work. This precious boy was adored by his parents and Ioved photographing him.Bellingham newborn photographer Renee Bergeron Little Earthing Photography Bellingham newborn photographer Renee Bergeron Little Earthing Photography Bellingham newborn photographer Renee Bergeron Little Earthing Photography Bellingham newborn photographer Renee Bergeron Little Earthing Photography Bellingham newborn photographer Renee Bergeron Little Earthing Photography Bellingham newborn photographer Renee Bergeron Little Earthing Photography Bellingham newborn photographer Renee Bergeron Little Earthing Photography Bellingham newborn photographer Renee Bergeron Little Earthing Photography

I have had the pleasure of photographing each one of Allie’s babies and newborns. In fact, her six-year-old, Brady, was the first newborn I ever photographed. I have grown a lot as a photographer in the past six years and have found I am really drawn toward lifestyle photography.

Sweet baby L. I was supposed to photograph her birth, but she was in too much of a hurry. Instead I arrived in time to capture those brand-new baby photos.

How fun is this? The B kids in 2011. I photographed little Ezra’s birth and then went back to do family photos a few weeks later. As a photographer there is no higher compliment that I can receive than being invited back to do more photos. bellingham birth photographer, bellingham newborn photographer, lifestyle photography, little earthling photography, renee bergeron photographer

Introducing: Birth Day Sessions! {Bellingham Newborn Photographer}

posted in: Newborns | 0

birth photography, bellingham birth photographer, bellingham newborn photographer, birth day photos session

Not every one wants birth photos, but every baby deserves his or her first days captured.

Birth Day sessions meet families where they are: hospital, birth center, or home. I come and capture your baby within in the first 48 hours of life. These sessions can include family meeting the baby for the first time, just mom dad and the baby, or just the baby himself. These photos are much more “lifestyle” images and very little posing is done.

Brenna’s Birth Day Session:

The Value of Newborn Photography

posted in: Newborns | 4

I know what you’re thinking. You’re a newborn photographer, of course you are going to say newborn photography is “important”. While that’s true, I want to tell you, as a mom, why newborn photography is so very important to me.

newborn, chd, heart baby

My last baby, Apollo, was born by emergency c-section. He had a bit a rough start and needed to be observed in the nursery for while he as worked on his breathing skills. Within hours he was resting peacefully in my arms, having been declared “perfect” by the doctors. A photographer friend came to visit when Apollo was six days old and helped me capture these beautiful newborn images. I will be forever grateful to Emily for that.

At age 18 months Apollo was diagnosed with a double aortic arch, a type of congenital heart defect. His heart defect required two heart surgeries and the placement of a g-tube. While I valued these photos before, I  absolutely treasure them now.

Never again  will I see my son’s precious scar-free back.

Never again will we see his unmarred little tummy.

I’m not ashamed of my son’s scars. They are symbols of his struggles, his suffering, his  resilient spirit.

Each scar tells a story about Apollo’s life.

A story I hope he will someday be proud to tell.

My son is a fighter. I love his body, scars and all.

When Apollo was born we had no idea what struggles he had ahead of him. That’s why newborn photography is so important to me. I am so grateful to have captured sweet newborn body. Just as I proudly capture his now scarred, but repaired,  body at two years old.
