JC - Originals Photography


Hello and welcome to my blog!

This is where I share sneak peeks with my clients and tidbits of my family through photography. I'm very blessed to be doing what I've always wanted to do... stay at home with my 3 beautiful children and photograph those around me; all with the support of my loving husband. In the meantime, sit back, relax and enjoy a little bit of us and my photography! Oh and I love comments... Let me know you're reading and what you like about it!

Just call me a newborn photographer...

Because if you can't tell by now, I love 'em! And lately I've been blessed to have many come my way... So keep spreading the word.

Yesterday morning I had the pleasure of photographing a new baby girl, her big brother and her family. She was actually one of the oldest 'newborns' I've done at 3 weeks old, but she was a pro! I had prepped mom that we might not get stuff like the youngers ones, but little Miss proved me wrong! Like all my other newborn sessions, once we got her belly full and the room nice and warm, she was out for the rest of our session.

While she was getting her belly full, we took advantage of the time and let big brother play with the blue car. He was a little timid at first, but then he got really excited at the thought of surprises for smiles!

We also took some time to get some of the two together, but I just realized I didn't edit any of those yet... I'll be back later to share at least one!

Finally, we got to baby sister. She was the star of the show, you know... The main reason for my visit!

Look at all that hair!

Don't you love this little crochet hat? It worked perfect with my flower! Mom shared with me where she got it and yesterday I was able to pick one up for future sessions. However, now I'm wishing I would have gotten more... More variety... LOL!

I'm loving these fur and animal print blankets I've seen some moms have. Makes me want to pick up one for myself just to have on hand for sessions!

Last, but definitely not least, was family time... A couple indoors...

Then a fun one outdoors!

Oh and I can't forget the little feet picture! Don't you just love baby toes??

Thank you C Family! And thank you to the grandparents too... We had two grandma's and one granddad helping us out... Helpers for everyone made the session go smoothly! That way everyone was happy.

I'll be in touch when the rest are ready!


Found another smile...

And some more of my favorites from today's session...

Future business man!

This one has a neat story behind it... One of the grandfathers has always given the grandkids a duck, so this is his duck...

Then this is a special hat that I believe a grandmother made...

Here is the other smile I caught! I told you he was a happy baby.

Got to use the doggy basket again.

Another special item... I believe the same grandmother that made the hat made this blanket. Mom and dad can correct me though if I'm wrong.

His room is a jungle theme and green is one of the colors, so I thought this one might look great in there!

Can't pass up a precious close-up!

Proud Daddy!

Mommy and baby!

New family!

Thanks again L family for having me over. Your little man was a pleasure to work with (as were the two of you). I'll be in touch when the proofs are ready!

**Be sure to scroll down to his smiley post if you didn't see it yet!

Oh Happy Day!

Or should I title this one... 'Happiest Baby on the Block'?? Either way, this little guy was so smiley! He made working on Memorial Day worth it... So sweet and precious! He let me move him and pose him and never really put up much of a fuss... Took a little break to eat and then we went right back to finish up the last set of poses. Smiling the entire time.

I'm only posting the smiley ones for now... I just had to share them--these are literally how happy he was the entire time. I'm posting them in the order I took them and the last picture of him with mom was literally one of the last shots I took, so he continued to smile the entire time.

This was the first smile I caught... with a little vintage action on it.

My absolute favorite one! Doesn't he have the best smile? He has dimples too!

More smiles!

So happy to be in mommy's arms...

Check back later for a bigger sneak! I wanted to go ahead and do a smiley post first, but I'll be back with a bigger sneak--maybe even tonight!


Happy 1st Birthday to Mr. C!

Can you believe it's been a year? I sure can't! Mr. C came to play today or should I say... celebrate his birthday with lots of outfits, growth items and cake. He was a happy little guy, a little more mobile than in the past, but we were fast and got what we needed to document him turning 1!

We started out with this...

Captured this at 3 months...

And this at 6 months...

On to this at 9 months...

And now a year later we have this...


Still great smiles!

Big boy toys!

Growth Item!

Fancy Wheels!


Thank you for letting me capture this past year for you! It's been fun to see Mr. C grow and I can't wait to see him continue to grow into the little man he will be...

**It's kind of neat too seeing how my work has progressed over the last year. ;-)



So here it is... Got clearance to share cuz the groom doesn't see the blog... Wah! Just kidding--in this situation, I am just fine with not having him as a reader. LOL! I don't think I could wait until after the wedding to share...

As usual, this is a huge share... I wanted to be able to show all the stuff we did... Some may be redundant, but there's at least something different in every picture. We did traditional, fun and even some sexy! I can say that, can't I?

This is a new vintage action I'm trying out. WDYT?

This guy was silly--he came running up out of nowhere and I just thought maybe he knew her, but nope... He just wanted in the picture!

A little sassy fun with the sunglasses!

The wind caught her veil here and I just happened to be ready to shoot--had to catch it in action!

You know how much I love my chair... So this next set is some of my favorites!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this one!

And how pretty does she look here?!

Thank you Miss G, soon to be Mrs. K! I can't wait for your big day...
