Meet Bryson!

As we blogged recently, one of our '2008 promotions' is that we are offering 'no sitting fee' photo sessions for "Bellies and Babies" (maternity where mom's belly is beyond her bust and little newborn babies). in order to create new portrait samples.

This handsome baby was born on May 13th (weighing only 5lb 4oz).

We photographed him when he was four weeks old (~7 lb).

His sleep deprived parents were very accomodating and we had such a great time photographing this little guy!!

They are only tiny tiny for a VERY short time. We like to focus in and capture little feet and toes before they slip away into roller skates and soccer cleats. . . it happens sooner that you think!

Can you believe that this little tike will be walking off to kindergarden and then asking for the car keys in the blink of an eye...
His parents will look back and remember when he was so small he fit into his Dad's forearm!

Mom is a graphic designer. We are looking forward to teaming up with her to offer our clients, especially our brides, some custom work. Please check out her website

But today she is a Mom and she exemplifies the main reason that we shoot the majority of our infant sessions with such shallow depth of field -- as this setting helps to depict how suddenly the parents whole world is about that little person. Though everything else around them may be out of focus, the one thing that matters is perfectly clear!

This little boy was sooo good. He slept and allowed his parents to move him around like jello to get these great images. We learned this pose at Sandy Puc "Bellies & Babies" seminar.

One of my favorite actions -- chocolate applied to B&W

Their dog Max reminded me a little bit our our Amethyst. We did manage to get ONE photograph of Max interacting with "his competition" :-) as Max is clearly "daddy's boy" too!

Despite being sleep deprived Mom was radiant. This little guy obviously brightens her whole world!

again, B&W with rich chocolate.

We have a lot of wonderful photos of the three of them and I know that we will be posting more photos here soon. Hope that you enjoyed the "sneak peak" at this little angel...

We would LOVE all 4x6 shots.

And we will choose the 16x20, etc.

Dear Lisa and Tom-

Brea photography is amazingly talented! Lisa and Tom have an amazing innate ability to 'see' fabulous photo opts that really have concept and allow the subject to shine through. They captured our emotions perfectly.

Not only were they patient, they were open to other photographic ideas that really displayed the love we have for our newborn, Bryson, in the way my husband and I show it. They were able to mirror, with their expertise, our family cuddling, holding our baby, and really letting our environment and our personal emotions dictate the flow of the photography session.

Being in the Creative Industry for quite sometime in Manhattan and so forth, I strongly recommend Lisa and Tom of Brea photography,
wholeheartedly to anyone who is serious about "Capturing the moment.

Best Regards,
The Pellegrinos
