Newborn sessions are usually done within the first 14 days of the baby’s life to ensure they are sleepy and will easily go into those little tucked poses. This can be hard to do for some families who are just settling into life with a newborn. During this stage of my life I was exhausted, emotional and kind of a wreck. That was not at all the case with the family of this recent newborn shoot. The parents were calm and patient with the process. Dad read books to big brother while mom nursed the baby. During the shoot, they were encouraging as big brother approached his new baby sister. Watching this family gave me such joy and I love the images we captured!
It seems that lately I have had a newborn baby girl streak- so many girls being born! This newborn session was just focused on capturing photos of this sweet baby girl and I am so in love with all the pictures we took! Mom and dad live near the beach so we did a mermaid photo and I adore the color palate in these! Mom and dad snowboard and ski in the winter so we did a creative image with the two in one. The floral photos were a last minute addition as I saw a beautiful floral arrangement in their home which gave us a soft feminine touch. We captured their pup, beach bag, first tutu and a sweet poster in the crib. Such a fun shoot and I really love the variety of photos we took!
Newborn baby Avery was sweet as could be on her first photo shoot. She was happy and sleepy, a dream to photograph. Her family was kind and absolutely gorgeous. A highlight was when the girls’ dad got into the crib for his daughter…..it was perfect. They were such a loving family and I love all the photos we took. Here are my favorites:
I absolutely love watching families grow. I have been photographing this gorgeous family for years and it has been such fun to watch their little girl blossom and to see as they welcomed their baby boy to the family. It was a great shoot and I adore the photos of big sis with her little brother. Here are my selects:
