I think my favorite thing about my job is to have the opportunity to photograph a family with a new little baby. I come to their house and take casual pictures of them in their comfortable home. The new Mom and Dad can feel relaxed and just cuddle with their sweet baby.
I love using natural light from the windows to create a soft, calm atmosphere.
and taking pictures on Mom and Dad’s bed! White comforter and sheets create such a clean, fresh look.
Mom looks radiant after just giving birth 10 days ago!
This little man didn’t want to take pictures with his family. Maybe the idea of a new baby/sister in the house, was a little too new for him. Poor guy. The only way we could get him to be involved was to wrestle with Dad. I love how they wrestle right next to the new baby! They done this before. :D
They had a picture of their Son’s feet with their rings on his toes, so I tried to duplicate it so they could have matching ones.
This next set of photos are with a portable backdrop, set up in front of sliding glass doors. All natural light.
Mommy and Baby Girl
I love the head in the hands shots. I usually get Dad’s hands, but Dad was tending to the little man, so he would get some attention and some LUNCH!
This next set are also done with portable backdrop and natural light.
I LOVE her legwarmers!
I found a little strand of lace at JoAnn’s fabrics to put around her sweet head
And last but not least, my friend Kayla with Sew Sweet made this bunting and headband.
AND we got that SMILE picture! Yay!
God bless this precious family. Thank you so much for inviting me into your home and letting me capture those first special moments with your Newborn.
