Miss Nelly was born on the 4th of July just after 6:30 in the morning, weighing in at 6 pounds and 6 ounces!  To celebrate her very special birthday we just had to do some Independence Day inspired photos.  She looks so cute in red, white and blue!!!!!!!!

This beautiful girl did so great during her newborn portrait session at my photography studio in Idaho Falls, ID!  She was content and sleepy and even gave me a smile!!!  Enjoy a look at Nelly:

Nelly’s mom mentioned that her nursery is a pink and green cactus theme and when I saw the picture I knew exactly what I wanted to do to create a fun and unique art piece for the wall!!!!!  Give me ALL the succulents, cactus and pink blossoms!!!!!  Isn’t Nelly just a doll?!?!?  I had so much fun creating this set up that I turned it into a digital backdrop so my friends and fellow photographers can use it too!!!!!!!!  You can find it here.  Thanks for stopping by my blog, I have the best job ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello photography friends!!!!!!!  I’ve had lots of inquiries about small group newborn workshops and other educational opportunities I’m offering THIS YEAR, especially since I had to cancel 7 workshop dates and locations in 2020 due to Covid.   I’m overjoyed to announce that I will be offering 2 workshops this year!!!!!!  In June 2021 I’ll be in Georgetown Kentucky, and then in August I’ll be in Missouri at the Intuition Backgrounds by Becky Gregory studio!!!!!  Information on both workshops and what is included can be found here.  I hope to see some new AND some familiar faces this year.  Contact me with questions or to arrange a payment plan, I am more than happy to help!

Have you ever tried using a digital background?  I love that they can be so quick and easy as seen in this video tutorial.  In this case, I’ve designed the images with my props, flowers, greenery, layers, bowls, furs, etc, and photographed it with my big beefy camera.  All YOU have to do is insert your own newborn photo! (Examples below)  Today the NEW Holiday Digital Backgrounds are available!!!!!!!!  I love traditional Christmas colors like red and green, but I also like to use different, fun and unique color combinations to add variety to the holiday season portrait options.

New to digital backgrounds?  Here is a quick VIDEO TUTORIAL and some visual samples of how digital backgrounds work:

This design below is SO MUCH FUN!!!!  I added Christmas decorations to 2 different versions of this background, and then took it all away to create a simpler year-round option:

Here are some other samples of the NEW Holiday Designs in use:

Happy creating!!!!

Hi friends!  Life is crazy, our family just got over covid, and work is keeping me busy busy busy!  At the same time, I am excited to show you 2 new products that are now available!!!!

First, I have a BACKDROP COLLECTION with my own designs over at Intuition (  There are only a few backdrops right now, but all my older ones will be added soon, and I have some new ones on the way as well!!!!!!

I did a blog post on release day showing the polka dot backdrops in use here:  Since the original release of these new backdrops I have added RED and GREY to the collection!!!!!  I know that I WILL DEFINITELY be using the red and gray for some of my December newborn sessions!!!!!


Second, I have a new line of DIGITAL BACKDROPS!!!!  I’ve done all the work creating the images with colors, layers and details I love, and all you have to do…is place your baby in!  Here are a few examples:

Here is a little look at some of the other digital backgrounds in my collection.  Check the website for all my designs! AND it’s BOGO through Black Friday using code:  BOGOBF

I am so grateful that Intuition Backgrounds invited me to create a collection of backdrops.  I knew immediately that I wanted polka dot backdrops in my most used and requested colors!!!!  And here they are…..introducing Perfectly Polka Dots:

These backdrops are SO MUCH FUN!!!! I have been searching for the perfect shade of pink, something that reminds me of fresh raspberries, and it’s finally here!!!!  It photographs beautifully!

I love a tack sharp image with a dreamy, soft, blurry backdrop.  Compared to the rest of the backdrops in my studio, I made this one a little more green and the color is simply divine!!!!!!! 

This soft purple is a wonderful lavender color:

The denim dots are a MUST HAVE for every studio!  Of course this beautiful blue is perfect for boys, but it is just as perfect for GIRLS!!!!!  This is my most used and requested backdrop!

This backdrop is a soft bubblegum pink color. It’s not too warm and not too cool, just a pretty and precious shade of baby pink.

Another one of my most requested backdrops is Young Love.  I’ve always thought is was the perfect shade of yellow.

The new yellow polka backdrop is a bit softer and more gender friendly (no hearts!), but still a beautiful shade of yellow!!!!  Add a little saturation in post processing if you like to make the yellow polka dots as bright as you’d like!!!!  This backdrop adds sunshine to any set, and works for all genders!!!!!! Looking for the perfect purple?  Well here it is!   Purple meets a touch of pink in this backdrop to create a beautiful shade of lavender.

And here are some more samples of the gorgeous, gender friendly polka dot, Caribbean.


Thank you to Intuition for allowing me to create these backdrops, in colors that will get LOTS of use in my studio!  I hope you love them as much as I do!!!!!!!!
