There has been such a baby boom this year and tons of amazing newborn sessions! What an exciting year!! When Mom and I were planning their family and newborn session for baby Lyra, I was really excited because of the theme and colors in her nursery. The room and design sounded amazing and I was not disappointed when I arrived at their home! A beautiful blue color on the walls with pink and white accents, butterflies and flowers...what a stunning and perfect design for a sweet little girl! And the family could not have been sweeter. Big brother Luke was really fun and active, but as soon as it was his turn to hold his baby sister, he was so gentle and kind - it totally made this mama's heart swell! Luke loved looking at his baby sister in her crib and when he held her in the rocking chair, he sang to her and drove his little car around her legs and arms while he told her a story. So stinkin' adorable!!
In planning the colors for Lyra's posed photos, we chose colors that would match the style in her room as well as their home. Soft pinks, cream and various shades of blue made a perfect combination for this family's style! This is always something I suggest to parents when planning out the colors and props we choose for their session because when client's print their photos and hang them on the walls, you want the images to match your family's home decor and personal style. Lyra slept really well so we were able to move through several posed set-ups. This gave us plenty of opportunity to capture different looks and poses. We finished up the session with some photos of mom and dad each with Lyra. And mom requested a shot of dad holding Lyra's feet as this is similar to an image from Luke's newborn session. I absolutely love photographing new babies in their daddy's hands...there's something really special about how tiny and fragile a young life is in their dad's strong hands. So I really love how this image came out as we can see each little wrinkle in Lyra's feet, held in her daddy's hands. What a great image to cherish forever!!
