Taylor, Benjamin, Brookelyn & Austin

How do I get so lucky?? Seriously these kids are just too dang cute for their own good. Brookelyn was especially killing me with all her expressions and her total enjoyment from being in the spotlight…being the only girl will do that to ya! Be prepared for wayyyyy too many pictures. I just couldn’t narrow it down. They are all just so sweet!


summer - Oh these are all soooooo cute!!! I definitely don’t mind lots of pictures! 😉 You always do such a fabulous job!

Talia Audenart - Holy. Crap. Soooo cute!!!

Carri Hales - I am in heaven! How can I choose what to put on canvas!! Thank you thank you so much, you are so amazing.

Carri - Oh I love them so much!!! Thank you thank you!! I am going to have the hardest time choosing which to put on canvas.

Kristin Cook - oh. my. word. These are SO cute!!! That little girl is so precious!!!

John Barwood - These are just brilliant! and as always the lighting is just perfect, you don’t really notice it, it just draws straight to the personality.

Debbie Wibowo - Love the little girl. So expressive.

Karen - oh my! these are AMAZING! and I MUST know where Mom found the first dress–the red stripes with the ruffles? i recognize the MJ–also adorable! 😉

skye johansen - Everything she is wearing is from Matilda Jane. :)

Nicole Hager - These are gorgeous! What adorable kids, I can’t get over the curls on that little girl! :)

Lazy Daisy Design: Photography by Teresa Henrie - Soooo cute!!! Such cuties! Brookelyn looks just like her Mommy!

Sally Cavanaugh - Hey Skye! I’ve been following your blog for quite some time now and I just have to ask what you use for the white wood backdrop/set you often use. I just love it and the way it looks in pictures! If you don’t mind sharing I’d love to know. Thanks!

skye johansen - Sally, it’s just MDF, my husband built the white background and we just painted it off white. :)

Nicola - Seriously! Too darn cute! Totally adorable!


It’s been so long since I last posted that I almost forgot how to put one together! Things over here have been sooooo busy but it keeps me going and I feel so lucky that I am able to surround myself with these darling newborns and little kids and be able to keep a schedule that allows me to do this from home and still be there for my kids when they get home from school and the real insanity begins! I really need to be better with my blog, I used to post every session and I know it was so fun for my clients to see their pictures on here before they got their CD. It makes me kind of mad at myself for letting it slip through the cracks. Actually really mad! I am going to try to post more often, I just need a few more hours in the day…but then again who doesn’t??

Here’s Elektra, I can’t believe she’s already a year old. Her newborn session was one of my favorite ever, here’s the link. I added links for everything if I know where it’s from, just mouse over the name of the company.:)

Cream hat and backdrop flooring from PepperLu

This pink onesie and leggings set from Taylor Joelle

Above and below headband from Cozette Couture

Crown from Miss Ruby Sue

Romper from Baby Lace Rompers

Lace shirt from Taylor Joelle

Gorgeous old fashioned bonnet from Lil’Owl Knitts

She’s so cute smiling but holy smokes I love her stunning little gaze!



Niina - I don´t think that a 1 year old could be more stunning! Her eyes are so expressive. I´m sure that her parents have had hard time choosing their favorite pictures among such beautiful images!

Summer Douglas - I remember her newborn pictures and oh. my. word. I can’t believe how big and drop-dead-gourgeous she has become! You always do such an amazing job and I am simply in love with the way you edit. Everything so smooth and clear :) I love your posts and can’t wait to be seeing more! 😀

Hannah Elise - these are stunning…that little doll is soso gorgeous. I totally love seeing your work, you do such an amazing job! Looking forward to more posts!

Jenny - These pics are amazing Skye! She is so so precious!

Angie Katsanevas - Skye, Thank you so much for posting these beautiful photos. We are so lucky to be the parents to this little Angel! They are all so breathtaking, we could not stop staring at them, even thought the real thing is right next to us;) You truly know how to capture her real beauty, and such great expressions. We are so glad we had you take her pictures, they are the most amazing keepsakes that we will forever cherish! You are so talented! Thank you again! Shawn, Angie, and Elektra;)

Kristina - Love the photos! She is absolutely beautiful.

Maybe you could make a page on your website with information about props so you don’t have to keep putting in the links on each post. It could save you lots of time when blogging (which means all of us might get to see more blog posts!). :)

Dary - I about died when I saw these images. They are so beautiful!! Wow!

Taylor - She is stunningly BEAUTIFUL! Love all of these!

Renee - Hi-Any idea where to find the pom pom tutu?? THX!!

Tai Lee Grant - She is one of the prettiest babies I have ever seen!

Brenda Perez - I just LOVE your photography! can you tell me what lens you used?

Boys, Boys, Boys

Who’s ready for some boys in action? Sometimes taking pictures of boys is like pulling teeth, but not with these two. I think I’ve photographed them so many times that they are pro’s now!! They are so stinkin’ cute! Here’s Taylor and Boston….


Melissa - So cute. Love the variety you got with them!!

Jenny - Wow, you got some amazing shots! Those boys are so cute!

Shannon Doleac - Skye!! It made my day to open your site and see these!!! You are sooooo amazing! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Lizzy Shawcroft - I am so in love with these! I am having a boy in June and these made me so dang excited to have boys!!! You are so talented! I love the processing! You’re amazing Skye!!!! The boys are so dang cute too!

kbreints - Oh gosh. Love these. and Boston is an adorable name!

Miche - Oh wow- it’s been awhile since I’ve popped over to see your amazing pics and so glad I did! :) I want some of these for my little boy. How cute are these zig zags in the back too! Way to go Skye- you never disappoint! :)

steph stewart - those boys are very cute! Where oh where did mom find the coordinating black and orange outfits? I’ve got 2 boys, and I live in canada… can’t find anything like that here…
Awesome session:)

Maria - Wow, what some adorable boys!! Where is the striped tie from? and the gray shirt with the tie sewed on? I love them.

amber - Skye I just love your photography! Your subjects’ skin tones and bright eyes always blow me away. You are so good at what you do. :)

Julie - soooo cute, I love the hats

Katy - I just love, love your photography. I was wondering if you would be willing to share where you get a lot of your awesome canvas backdrops such as this one and also how or where you purchase the cute Photoshop doodles/brushes i see in your gallery photos at the top of the blog page. Love them and i cannot ever find ones as cute! Thanks for all your suggestions.

skye johansen - Hi Katy! Which background were you talking about? The chevron is from and the artwork on my header images were drawn by my blog designer, her info is at the bottom of my blog. :) Thanks!

Patty - Skye, you inspire me sooooo much. I wish I lived near by to have you take my babies photos. I’m in California and a newbie and I have four boys in ages 15, 13, 5, and 10 months and a little girl age 3 who I would love to get photos like this of. If you don’t mind me asking, what lens do you use to get these insanely detailed, focused and uber sharp photos of them? How do you bring out so much detail in thier eyes, especially the iris? What settings did you use to get their entire body in focus? Thnaks for your time.

Patty - Skye,

Can I ask where you get your barnwood backdrops and floor drop from? I really love the backdrop and floor drop with the little boy wearing the cap. Thanks so much.
