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!
This big sister little brother duo were a darling pair. Big sister Alex was great when she held her newborn baby brother Ryan for their portraits. We did mostly pictures of baby Ryan, starting with awake shots and then he fell asleep and we did his sleeping portraits. The kids dad owns the bakery Sweet Lady Jane in Santa Monica, so the family came up with the creative idea to use the cakes as “sweet” props. These cakes were not only beautiful to look at, but I got to sample one after the shoot and it was delicious! What a fun shoot with so many great photos:
