When I met baby Connor, it was one of those sunny, beautiful March mornings in Pittsburgh. My family had just returned from a trip late the night before, but I loaded up on coffee and headed over to the Jordan family's home to photograph their new baby boy. We started with their family photos and had to include their sweet dog, Samson, in the photos. Although I do not think Samson would have allowed us to take too many photos without him in them somewhere! He was super cute, very curious about baby Connor and was eager to check him out in the crib! We captured some lifestyle images of the new family together in Connor's nursery and made sure to include Samson. Connor's grandparents had gifted the new parents a beautiful painting of The Velveteen Rabbit, one of mom's favorite books as a child, that was hung over his crib. They wanted to try and capture some images together in front of the painting as it was so special to their family.
Once we finished the family portraits in the nursery and their living room, I started setting up for the posed newborn photos. Mom decided that she wanted to incorporate neutral colors and various shades of blue in his posed photos. I brought a variety of options and we selected some fabrics, textures and colors that she would like me to use. He was already swaddled in this beautifully textured neutral wrap from the family portraits, so I went ahead and started with the bucket prop set up and went with neutral and brown colors. I also used different textures, like fur, burlap, and wood which added an interesting in the set up. Connor was sleeping so well, I was able to move through a variety of fabric backdrop set ups and poses which gave the family several options in their gallery. He was a dream baby to photograph and I loved capturing his little details and features, including the best baby belly rolls!
