One of the really fun aspects of being a photographer is that I am able to be creative and make each session personalized to each family. When Baby Mabel's mom contacted me about a newborn session, she said that wanted to primarily focus on lifestyle images of her new family and baby girl. But she also wanted a few posed photos. Each family is so different and they each have their own preferences. So it's really important to fully understand what the parents have in mind for their photos so I can provide a custom session, just for them!
When I arrived to their home, I was greeted by their super friends pup who they wanted to include in a few of their photos. We started with some family photos downstairs and included their dog, who eagerly joined in on the family fun! Afterwards, we headed upstairs to get some photos in the nursery and their bedroom, which had really beautiful light! And Mabel's nursery was decorated so cute, I was excited to use the space as a backdrop! We made sure to capture some really snuggly images and I love how proud and beaming both Mom and Dad looked while staring into the beautiful face of their new daughter. I was even able to snap a few photos of their fur baby checking in on Mabel in her crib!
For Mabel's posed photos, we focused on simple, light and airy setups. Mom helped narrow down the choices for her colors and headbands, which ended up looking beautiful on Mabel's skin tone and jet-black hair color! She was so snuggly and easily slept through her session which gave me the chance to photograph her in a few different poses. She was the perfect little model for her first photo session!
