It is always fun for us ladies at the studio to see the trendiest baby names. For a while we saw a lot of Jacksons, Avas, Sophias and a whole lot of Olivas – but Charles has been a constant over the past few years. It is a nice classic name, and Charlie is such a cute nick name for either a baby or really at any age. This Manhattan Beach family arrived to use for their newborn pictures at our photo studio with their very own little Charlie bundle of joy!
For his pictures, mom wanted a neutral color palate with pops of blue, plus a baseball themed set to represent dad’s hobby. Mom also wanted to bring in a beach vibe to the baby’s pictures, and so we did the cutest little boat with beach props and nautical flags.
