Meet beautiful baby Sloan! When I met this gorgeous little girl, she was just a week old but we had her session planned for months after I did their maternity session. They waited to find out the gender until she was born and to find out they had a girl - what a fun surprise! They are a very laid back, casual family so for the family photos, we tried more natural photos of the family together. Big brother Lewis decided that he'd rather play with his cars than take photos, but it was fun capturing them playing together and interacting in a more casual atmosphere.
Baby Sloan had perfect newborn features so I took photos at different angles to showcase her details. She looks like a little doll! We also found out that she liked to be wrapped, so I made sure to keep her wrapped, warm and snuggled for her photos. I really love the lace backdrop that mom chose to use. It's girly without being over the top - just the perfect feminine touch! While I definitely have my own preferences and style when choosing props, I always ask for input from the parents so that their photos can match their own family's style. While I am not an 'over-the-top, pink, girly' person, I always have those pink accents and touches available that to a family that loves girly set ups for their new baby girl. I knew that Sloan's parents wanted feminine touches without too much pink, so I chose props and set ups that would compliment that choice. I love to personalize the newborn session so it is unique to the family! Plus, if a family has specific props or items that they would like to use, I love to incorporate those as well. It really makes their photos that much more personal and special!
