Walnut Creek Newborn Photographer | Baby S http://www.evabakerphotography.com/blog/2017/9/walnut-creek-newborn-photographer-baby-s I LOVE chunky babies. Love love love. Maybe because my own babies were super chunky so it's sort of nostalgic... whatever it is I am just super obsessed. Enter baby Sophie. I wanted to take her home she was just so sweet and snuggly and the perfect little angel during her session. Needless to say, we managed to accomplish a lot of really cute stuff with her!!! Check it out :)

Walnut Creek Newborn Photographer | Baby K http://www.evabakerphotography.com/blog/2017/9/walnut-creek-newborn-photographer-baby-k Well after a streak of super sleepy easy babies, I knew I was due for a tougher run. Enter this sweet dude. Don't be fooled by the images, he definitely made me work for every sleeping moment!

Walnut Creek Newborn Photographer | Baby E http://www.evabakerphotography.com/blog/2017/9/walnut-creek-newborn-photographer-baby-e I had a super hard time narrowing down this gallery to share... and can you blame me? Possibly the most beautiful family I've ever photographed... and sweet baby Emerson was the best - my youngest baby who came in at only 3 days old!!!

Walnut Creek Baby Photographer | Baby S Cake Smash http://www.evabakerphotography.com/blog/2017/5/walnut-creek-baby-photographer-baby-s-cake-smash Cake smash sessions are quickly becoming one of my favorites. And how could they not be with 1 year old cuties like this guy? He was such a trooper during his session considering I attempted to keep him in one spot for an hour - a remarkable feat considering he is super on the move!! But well worth the effort, we captured some really great expressions!

Did you know I am *obsessed* with baby lashes???

Martinez Maternity Photographer | Waiting for #2 http://www.evabakerphotography.com/blog/2017/5/martinez-maternity-photographer-waiting-for-2  

Is it just me or did we completely skip Spring this year? Save for a few days of lovely 75 degree weather, I feel like it's been alternating between 60 and raining and 95 degrees. On the plus side, all the rain this year brought about some incredibly gorgeous scenery which has now once again turned into the {ahem} "beautiful" amber hills we are known for in California. So I'm going to reminisce for a moment and go back to those days of lush greenery and mustard fields with this adorable family of 3.75.

Walnut Creek Family Photographer| Mother's Day Surprise Session http://www.evabakerphotography.com/blog/2017/5/walnut-creek-family-photographer-mothers-day-surprise-session A few months ago Tim reached out to me about photographing him and his adorable son as a surprise for his wife for Mother's Day. How sweet is that?? Of course I was SO excited for this session and these 2 definitely did not disappoint. I've been waiting to blog it until Mother's Day passed just in case and am so excited to share these now!!

Walnut Creek Baby Photographer | Baby O Lifestyle Session http://www.evabakerphotography.com/blog/2017/5/walnut-creek-baby-photography-baby-o-lifestyle-session I super love photographing newborns, but once in a while I get to photograph a baby a few months old and it's so magical. Newborns don't really photograph well when they're awake so we have to make sure they sleep for as much of the session as possible. Once babies are older and can keep their eyes focused a little, it's super fun to capture them asleep and awake. I get the joy of photographing this little beauty every 3 months for the next year, so stay tuned for more of this beautiful little girl and her family!

Pleasant Hill Newborn Photographer | Lifestyle Session http://www.evabakerphotography.com/blog/2017/5/pleasant-hill-newborn-photographer-lifestyle-session After a streak of studio sessions I was super excited when Mari-Anna called me about an in-home session. I love shooting in my studio because I have really great natural light that I don't have to worry about but there is something really fun to the challenge of shooting in someone's home. Walking into a new location, unsure what to expect. It really forces you to challenge yourself and find creative ways to use elements from around their home and interesting ways to play with the light available.

Walnut Creek Child Photographer | M's Cake Smash | Where the Wild Things Are http://www.evabakerphotography.com/blog/2017/4/walnut-creek-child-photographer-ms-cake-smash-where-the-wild-things-are You guyssss.... Let me start by saying that you're probably going to be overwhelmed with cuteness. This little dude is so adorable and his mama did a great job styling him up! Plus I'm sort of a sucker for themed shoots - in this case "Where the Wild Things Are" - one of my favorite childhood books. OK, ready?!?!

OK are you ready for more cuteness???

OMG. OK that's the most photos I've ever blogged from a session, but can you blame me?!

Walnut Creek Newborn Photographer | Baby C Studio Session http://www.evabakerphotography.com/blog/2017/3/walnut-creek-newborn-photographer-baby-c-studio-session Been getting lots of baby girls in the studio lately which is SO fun because they really make all the cute stuff for girls (sorry boys). Of course that's also led me to binge shop on Etsy... but can you blame me? How cute is this little peanut??

My baby is almost ONE! http://www.evabakerphotography.com/blog/2017/3/my-baby-is-almost-one I don't even know where the year went. I'm pretty sure I just had a newborn. I FEEL like I just had a newborn. But alas, my unicorn baby is turning one in a few days and I'm sort of beside myself. When Emily was a baby, let's just say she wasn't the "easiest". Paired with being a first-time mom and not really knowing the beauty of what I had in the moment until the next phase came on and was, to my dismay, harder than the last, I feel like I was always in a hurry for her to get older. To get past the fussy phase. To get past the crawling phase, because obviously walking would be easier. To get to the talking phase because that's easier than pointing and squeaking at things. If only I knew!

When I had Dominic I knew he was our last. And that probably made me hold on to his babyness even more, but he's also just about the most laid back baby on the planet. I first heard the term "unicorn baby" when he was around 3 months old and friend used the term on her little girl. A unicorn baby: 'one that never fusses, sleeps through the night super early on and basically is so magical it's gotta be a myth'. Enter Dominic. My unicorn baby. Slept 5 hour stretches at night from the day he was born. The nurses said it wouldn't last. But I feel like the universe owed me this magical baby. If you know my daughter, you know I'm right. My daughter has the energy, spunk and sass of a 13 year old. She's the poster child for the term "threenager". And I love her to pieces, all of it, but it's downright exhausting at times and I'm thankful I have a little balance in my home {for now}.

Now he's close to walking, splurting out his first words, starting to be opinionated and getting dangerously close to toddlerhood. I'm one glass of wine shy of becoming that creepy mom in the "I love you forever" book who goes into her son's room every night and rocks him "back and forth, back and forth". But can you blame me...?

And have I mentioned he's obsessed with Emily? OBSESSED.
