Mt. Charleston Family Hike {Family Photography} | Las Vegas Family & Baby Photographer

Once you live in a place like Alaska, the mountains own a part of your soul. That part will never stop craving mountain air and a good hike. For this reason, I have to get out of the city frequently. We must explore or I simply suffocate. There are a lot of beautiful places to hike surrounding Las Vegas, and this past weekend we explored Mt. Charleston.

We chose the Cathedral Rock Trail, as we wanted a trail that the kids could conquer while still giving us some challenge. This area was a very pretty place to explore. Large ponderosa pines towered above us from the start, and as we climbed we found brilliantly green aspens. There were a few small pops of wildflower, and we spotted a couple of butterflies along the way. Mostly, the children just played with dirt, rocks, and sticks as usual. We even found a set of rock stacks to add our own rock finds to.

Our goal was to make it to the waterfall fork trail at the least, and we did. However, the waterfall was a small trickle of melting snow. The kids followed Josh up to the top of the waterfall, feeling satisfied with their climbing fun. After carefully climbing back down over the loose rocks and gravel, we headed back home tired but content with a few hours spent in the mountains.

Avocado Mask {Essential Oil Recipes} | Young Living Essential Oil Distributor

Since moving to Las Vegas, my skin has been reacting pretty negatively to the new climate and allergies that come with it. Now I know we all break out from time to time, but it’s been extreme and by the end of the day I can’t take the itchy, nearly-painful feel of my own skin. This cooling avocado mask is heavenly, and I’ll be applying this more often to calm reactive skin down.

Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup greek yogurt
  • ½ an avocado
  • 4 drops tea tree essential oil
  • 4 drops lavender essential oil
  • 2 drops helichrysum essentail oil

The essential oils in this recipe are naturally cleansing, which should help with the non-stop breakouts since relocating. In addition to that, it feels very cool upon application. Once I’ve let it dry for 20 or more minutes, I just rinse off and my skin feels a lot better; calm, soothed, and less itchy.

Floyd Lamb Birds {Family Photography} | Las Vegas Family & Baby Photographer

Our family has been exploring different parks each week, since arriving in Las Vegas. This week we decided to try out Floyd Lamb Park. Looking it up online, it looked like the perfect open, green space to go run. What we didn’t see is that there are birds and bunnies everywhere. If you are thinking about bringing the family dog, I’d think twice. We had my brother’s pup, Dax, along for a walk with us, and he was slightly tormented by the adorably tempting prey animals at the park. The kids, however, totally loved watching geese, peacocks, ducks, and bunnies roam freely.

We’ll strolled down to the barns briefly, to see the farm animals, but the barnyard is pretty blocked off during the week. They do offer barnyard entrance on Saturday mornings though, if you are looking for the barnyard petting zoo experience. We had a little peak, and moved on to the lake.

As we approached the lake, peacocks began to sound and geese called out in a cacophony of bird chatter. We knew something had to be up. Sure enough, a truck had pulled up to the lake with a flashing light that signaled feeding time. The frenzy was in full swing by the time we reached the lake. I told the children to stay back, knowing how pushy and nippy geese can get. However, one of the park staff members handed the kids some bread, telling us that the birds were very friendly and would let us walk right into the flock without trouble. Before you get concerned about bread not being the best food for geese, I assure you there was a buffet of lettuce, tomatoes, and ground corn for them to eat. The bread was just their “treat”, and the kids really enjoy feeding them breadcrumbs and lettuce.

The Chamberlains Meet Nevada {Family Film & Photography} | North Las Vegas

We’ve been exploring just about every weekend since moving to Nevada. I’m an not a city girl, friends, and I need a regular escape from the business here. I am so thankful for this man right here putting up with my wanderlust. The change from Alaska to the desert is going to be a tough transition. I don’t think I will ever stop missing Alaska, but getting out to some trails really helps. All of the color and texture in the landscape at Red Rock Canyon really set me free.

Over the past month, I’ve been enrolled in an extensive family film class. I’ve been capturing all of our family adventures and everyday fun with video. Our final project was to put together an entire month of family video clips, in an artistic film edit. I absolutely love how this film preserved all the wonder of exploring a new home. I am now offering family films as an option to clients. I think family videography is invaluable, and records components of memories that still photos cannot. Clients can now book film sessions for family day-in-the-life, newborn, maternity, first year, and birth. If you’re interested in working with me to create a film, please email me at info@sarahbethchamberlain.com.

I am currently booking newborn due dates, family, baby, and maternity photo sessions into summer 2018. Booking your newborn session early gives us time to plan for a beautifully artistic newborn gallery that you can be proud of.

Rynisha {Mother’s Day Session} | Las Vegas Family and Baby Photographer

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, families. One gift that a mom always needs is photographs with her in them. This year, we’ve limited our Motherhood Sessions to five session times on May 12th. Those sessions include professional hair and makeup application, entertainment of children while mom gets pampered, and a 45 minute snuggly portrait session with the little ones. These are really great for families with children, baby through teen. Yes, even the older ones can be coerced to love on their momma for Mother’s Day, so why not take advantage. As you can see from the image below, I do a lot less posing in these sessions than your typical studio portrait session. Why? I want that motherly bond to shine above all. All you have to do is book the session and come in to the studio for snuggles.

The session fee for a Motherhood Session is $250. That session fee covers your professional stylists and session time with me. You’ll then come back to the studio for a proofing appointment, to select the images that you love from the session. I have some special portrait packages put together just for mother’s day starting at $299. Yes, professional retouching is included with every, single image selected! If you’d like details about those portrait packages, just send me an email at info@sarahbethchamberlain.com.

Raiah {Milestone Session} | Las Vegas Family & Baby Photographer

Little Raiah completely stole my heart during her baby photo session. She is one of those babies that will very quietly observe surroundings before exploring and playing. Several times, Raiah stared right into the camera, sharing her deep, beautiful eyes. This little girl is just too gorgeous. She made me a very happy baby photographer that day.

Gisibelle {Milestone Session} | Las Vegas Family & Baby Photographer

Giselle was so much fun to visit with during her milestone session. This little lady loves to dance and clap to music, so it didn’t take much for her baby photographer to bring out those smiles.

Alexander {Milestone Session} | Las Vegas Maternity, Newborn, Baby & Family Photographer

Milestone sessions are one of my favorites as a baby photographer. Alexander came to the studio for a Saturday morning session, a little sleepy and shy at first. Within a few moments those bright eyes started to show, and he was smiling and exploring. Seriously, he’s such a cutie.

Sophia {Birth Photography} | Las Vegas Maternity, Newborn, Family & Birth Photographer

During our time in Alaska, we were very blessed with good neighbors, whom I knew would stand by us should there ever be a need. In the months prior to our move out of Alaska, our neighbors, Christina and Andrew, were expecting a little girl while Andrew deployed. The neighbors we loved, stepped in and helped Christina whenever they could. Their son, John, became a helper too. Christina contacted me about birth photography, but Sophia’s due date was set after our moving date. She wanted to be sure that everything was captured should Andrew not be able to video call. I referred a number of birth photographers, but none were available for her date. My friend Dori, agreed to be on call after we moved out of state, but encouraged me to go if Christina went into labor before I left. We had a plan to support her and document the day. Because of her due date, I pretty much counted on missing this amazing birthday. I was surprised when I was able to be her birth photographer after all.

Christina went into labor on St. Patricks Day, while Andrew did a little dance for the Irish baby he’d hoped for. This was just two days, before our little family started the drive out of Alaska. I was thrilled. Camera and gear were all ready to go! After I arrived at the hospital, friends and neighbors began to pour into the room, offering hugs and support for Christina, John, and Andrew. Their “Alaska family” was very excited to meet Sophia. They all stayed for quite a while and the room was filled with laughter and chatter. Some Irish spirits may have floated around too.

Christina began to shake and shiver, a clear sign that transition had arrived and labor was progressing more quickly. We called Andrew, who was able to video chat with her. Friends began to step out, the birth room grew more quiet, and John took his place at his mother’s side. At first, a look of worry came across his face. “Why is she shaking?” he asked. I explained that the shivers just meant that his baby sister was going to be here very soon. We placed some warm blankets over Christina as she breathed through a contraction. John took Christina’s hand, warmed it with his breath, and stayed there to comfort her. The nurses and doctors came back into the room to prepare for Sophia’s arrival. As Christina began to push, one of the nurses asked John to count. His voice grew more and more excited each time. Finally, Sophia was out and placed on Christina’s chest. Tears. Lots and lots of tears.

Everything went so smoothy from there. Andrew continued to video chat, very excited to meet his little girl. John put on Sophia’s first diaper, and stayed close while the nurses performed her newborn exam. Sophia began to nurse right away. This was such a special day, and I am forever grateful to be a part of it.

  • Amanda Bolling - How exciting!  So proud of Johnathan!  He’s an amazing kiddo, so grown up helping Mom when little sister arrived.  He was so excited to tell everyone about Sophia after spring break.  I won’t ever forget that big smile while he told me about it!!!  Congrats!!!ReplyCancel

Christina {Lifestyle Maternity Photos} | Las Vegas Maternity Photographer

As we were getting ready to move out of our Alaskan home, my sweet neighbor contacted me and asked if I had time for one more maternity session. Of course! Lifestyle maternity photos were perfect for Christina, because they really capture the memory of this pregnancy. Her husband, Andrew, is over seas through the rest of the pregnancy, and there will be a happy reunion shortly after their baby girl arrives. I’ve seen nothing but strength from Christina over the last few months, and these photos show that their home is still filled with love and a strong sense of family. I melted a little when she told me that her son, John, plans to be with her through labor. This little man of the house is one of the most sensitive, sweet boys I’ve ever met. He’s definitely momma’s supporter right now and is the perfect person to stand by her side.

Oh yeah, and then there’s Benny the pup…

…and Boston, Christina’s first fur baby.

When Christina first talked to me about her maternity photos, the one thing she wanted was a silhouette maternity portrait. Just a photo to remember her shape and curves, and to be able to share that with Andrew.

We couldn’t just stay inside on the day of Christina’s session. Fresh snow was falling steadily that day, and our neighborhood was a winter wonderland. We walked out for a moment into the forested space nearby, to take a few snowy Alaskan portraits. She had a furry blanket that we used to keep her warm and cozy up these images.
