There is nothing sweeter than a couple who have welcomed a new little addition to their family! The anticipation and excitement is palpable and I love seeing the mixture of exhaustion and pure love for their new little baby. It's such a special time in their lives!! When mom contacted me at the end of last year to book their newborn session, I could tell how excited she was about the upcoming birth of their little baby girl!
Because all of my newborn photography sessions are offered in the client's home, I often do not know what type of lighting, set up or space I'll have to use until I arrive. It can be both exciting and challenging! But when I arrived to meet baby Emilia, I fell in love with their home - it was such a beautiful space to photograph! The living space was bright and airy, there was a really great big window space to set up for Emilia's posed photos and her nursery was absolutely stunning! They did such a wonderful job decorating her nursery and it was fun to capture all of the sweet details in her room.
When we finished up the family photos and lifestyle images in Emilia's nursery, I set up for her posed photos. Mom had a really fun time going through all of my props and headbands, making the final selections for Emilia's photos. And Emilia slept so well during her session that we were able to get through several set ups! Oftentimes, parents will have personal items that they would like to try and incorporate in the session, if possible. Mom had some really awesome items that we were able to use, including a blanket from her Aunt and some adorable pink paper flowers that were used at the baby shower! I think it adds a really unique and sentimental touch to the photos and I'm always happy to try and use them in their session!
