We're Daniel and Bethany. Husband and wife photographers and cinematographers based in Southern California. We hope you will sit down with some coffee and enjoy viewing our latest work and catching a glimpse of our lives and adventures!
Today our son is four weeks old. We are so thrilled to be introducing him to all of you and to share his newborn photos. Meet our precious son, Oliver Winter Wu! He was born on December 7 and has completely turned our lives around and stolen our hearts these past four weeks.
We made the choice to hire a newborn photographer to take Oliver’s newborn photos. Even though we are photographers ourselves, we wanted to hire someone who specializes in newborn photography.
Not all photography is the same and we recognize this. Newborn photography takes special skills with posing, photo compositions, and safety knowledge. We have never taken baby photos and don’t know how to safely pose our baby for the photos we want. Just like we encourage brides and grooms to hire a professional wedding photographer to properly capture their wedding day, we decided to hire a professional newborn photographer to capture the newborn stage in the way we wanted.
Stevie Cruz Photography in Irvine, CA was the photographer that we chose. Stevie was fantastic! We were able to have a consultation with her before Oliver was born. She answered all of our questions and allowed us to wander around her studio. On the day of the photo session, she was so sweet. Watching her do her magic was a true pleasure. We are so glad that we decided to hire someone for our baby photos and have purchased the one year package so that we get the 3 month, 6 month, and 1 year milestone photos as well.
Don’t get me wrong, we are definitely taking our own photos every day, but we also wanted photos with the props that we don’t have and poses we don’t know how to set up.
Ok, I’m going to keep this post short and sweet and just share the pictures from you.
In a few days we will be sharing our birth story so stay tuned for that!
