When clients return to our studio with the first addition to their family, it can be a really joyous time for both the family and myself too. I love seeing my client’s extended families grow and in this particular session, I had already done the client’s siblings years before. We were able to get some really gorgeous shots of the new baby, including some very sweet ones with his eyes open and alert, and then also cuddled up in a sweet slumber.
When our clients consult with us prior to their session, we can brainstorm together some ideas for the types of images that they want from their shoot. In this case, the family really wanted to do some Harry Potter-themed photos with their newborn – so we were able to capture some very sweet images in this particular theme.
Detail shots are also sometimes over-looked by parents of newborns, as we all want to see their sweet faces! However, photos of details of their tiny little feet and hands can make for extra special memories to cherish, as we know that they grow very quickly. I love the images of their little fingers and toes. We also captured some with a little grey hat and this blue knit outfit by Goodnight Baby by Nook.
Another thing that this family wanted to capture was some images including the grandparents in the session. Grandpa’s arms are seen holding the baby and Grandma was just as eager to hold her new grandson.
