Recently, I had great pleasure of welcoming a beautiful new baby boy into a young family. I had the opportunity to work with the parents during their maternity session. We had so much fun, and I looked forward to them returning for their newborn shoot.
The new mother and father dressed in dark shirts for their session, which looked especially nice with dad’s dark hair and beard. We added contrast to the photos by wrapping the baby in a light grey-colored wrap. This allowed the baby to shine as the center of the photographs. I loved watching the dad as he gazed lovingly into his son’s eyes, and the mom as she serenely snuggled her little man.
I enjoyed being able to capture the special features of their baby. I loved photographing his beautiful hands folded together and his cute little rounded nose. Quite often he would curl his hands up under his chin while he slept. This handsome man had a full head of beautiful brown hair, and this feature was brought out with lighter blankets. I also loved filming him in the blue blankets with the darker background, as this combination really brought out the stunning color of his pink skin and lips.
It was fun to incorporate a few props into the pictures. The family had brought in a cute little mask, and it turned into an adorable shot. I also enjoyed wrapping the baby and posing him on wooden crates. This brought a real country feel to some of the photographs.
This was such an enjoyable family and a fun photo shoot. I am looking forward to connecting with them again during future sessions and having the opportunity to watch this handsome man grow.
