The day of baby Elodie's newborn session was quite an event! Pittsburgh was getting torrential amounts of rain where roads and areas were flooded so it was an interesting trek to get to the family's home for their newborn session. It was also quite dark outside and, as a natural light photographer, it was a little tricky finding the best light to shoot their family photos and Elodie's posed newborn photos. But we made it work and focused on little pockets of light throughout the house to set up. I ended up setting up against a window in their kitchen in the corner of the back of the house. It was a creative location!
We started with the family photos in their newly remodeled living room, which was luckily light and airy on this dreary, dark day. Mom had a super cute little outfit picked out for Elodie to wear for their family photos that coordinated perfectly with Mom and Dad's outfits! We also included the family cat, who was very curious about this new little creature in the house. I love capturing lifestyle images of families with their new babies. It's the best way to focus on their relationship with each other and with this new little person that they brought into the world!
We then moved on to the nursery to capture some snuggly images together in Elodie's floral and unicorn themed nursery. They did such a wonderful job decorating her nursery with a mix of vintage and classic pieces, it'll be a perfect little room for Elodie to grow into! After finishing up the family photos in her nursery, we then started on choosing set ups for Elodie's posed photos. Mom wanted to stick with feminine colors and accents, including lace and flowers. We started with a pink fur blanket and a lace and floral headband then moved onto purple, a cotton lace backdrop and purple floral headband. We utilized lots of delicate touches for a perfectly girly session!
