Hello, and welcome to my blog. I'm a natural light photographer living in the Boise, Idaho area with my husband and 5 kids. I enjoy capturing images of all kinds, but I am truly in love with photographing newborn babies. The first days of life are precious and magical and so very fleeting. Feel free to email me with any questions you may have at info@LauraFarrisPhotgraphy.com. Thank you for visiting my little corner of the web :)

Her book came!

I spent countless hours putting Stella's newborn book together. It was worth it. I love it. It's 89 pages long so I can't share the whole thing, but here are several of my favorite layouts.















































I'm so glad that's done and I can enjoy it!

Thanks for all the nice comments. I must say that I'm so happy I took the time & effort...lots of effort to put this together for her. I wish I had one for all my kids.

Was there any kind of templet or have you done all the text yourself?
I want to make one when our first little one arrives :)

Amazing!

Laura said...

Thanks for the comments ladies!!! I bought a template that had 9 two page layouts from Jamie Shultz and I did made the rest myself.

Dana said...

Laura...love the book. I have been looking at your blog for about a year (I am Russell Mower's cousin and live in the same stake as your parents). Your work is beautiful. Would you ever be willing to let me come talk photography with you? I am also wondering if you used a macro lens for "her details". Thanks!

Laura, I don't think I have ever seen a more beautiful newborn book! I LOVE IT! WOW, I am sooo impressed! You rock girl! I too want to know where you printed it, if you don't mind sharing. Thanks so much!!!

Laura said...

Dana, I did use a macro lens for most of the shots of her details. I borrowed it from a friend and LOVED it. I used my 24-70 2.8 on some of those too. It works okay, but doesn't get in really really close like a true macro does. Cama, I'll email you.

Stephanie said...

I just can't stop looking at this.
It's gorgeous. Now I am really convinced to drop scrapbooking and make something like this instead.
Is your husband a photographer? I supposed he took the shots at the hospital?

I would love to know where you got it printed. It looks so professional.
Please let me know; mys[at]mysmasken.se

I know mine won't look nearly this good, but I think I will start planning it already, even though baby is not due until March next year :)

Robin said...

WOW!!!!! Just amazing!!!

Steph said...

Laura,
What a treasure this will be!

Dana said...

Thanks Laura...That is cool you have a photography friend that you can swap equipment and chat with!! Good for you.

Jacqueline said...

Laura, I would love to know where you had your book printed, it looks gorgeous! What a lucky little girl to have such a great memento of her first few weeks.

Ashki said...

These are GORGEOUS, Laura :). It doesn't hurt that your family is beautiful :).

Cyndee <><

Laura, it's just breathtaking. I don't know what to add to everyones comments, just that I know how many late nights you put into this, and it was so worth it! What a treasure for you and little Stella to have. You're such a beautiful photographer, but you're also amazing at design! Could you be any more talented?

Keri Blue Photography said...

I have her urbanesque templates and love them! I'll have to check out her baby templates, too. LOVE what you've done with your book! Where did you decide to print?
