I just wanted to shout out to my good friend, Jen Wright. She graduated from the Brooks Institute (Photography) this past weekend and I am so proud of her! She moved across the country from Atlanta, Georgia, to attend Brooks in Santa Barbara. She has not decided where she is going to live and set up shop (CA or GA) but I know how much she loves southern California. Since she is already here, I am urging her to give California her best shot (pun intended) over the summer. Not only can Jen nail the technicalities of a portrait, but she connects with children very well… a bonus that came from many years working as a nanny! So, if you are in the San Diego, Orange County or Los Angeles area and needing portraits of your kiddos, check out her website: Jen Wright – *California* children’s photographer

newborn photography workshop baby posing for photographers

My most important job in planning the Baby as Art Workshops is finding our little models. I’ll admit, I started to get a little bit nervous two weeks before the May workshop as I waited for babies to be born. We ended up with 5 beautiful models, as you can see below! The June workshop is right around the corner and I am hoping this full moon will kick start labor for my June models! If there are any Mama’s interested in providing back up models for June, email me for details. And while I have your attention, I am also looking for models that will be less than 2 weeks old in early August. Of course, babies are unpredictable, so if you are due mid July – mid August, email me, for details.  © carrie sandoval | baby

The first Baby as Art workshop is under our belts and I must say… we had a total blast! We got to meet a wonderful group of ladies from Canada to Puerto Rico as well as welcoming four brand new babies into the world. Our first mini model pictured above is 8 day old sweet Sienna from Long Beach, California.

This beautiful head of hair belongs to our second model, little Lucy, from… get this… Salt Lake City, Utah! Beings her and her Mama came so far, I knew she would be up for an outdoor adventure. Thanks, Mama!
