I am so excited to share the maternity and newborn sessions for the latest addition to the Burger family! I have been lucky enough to photograph this gorgeous family since the maternity photos for their first daughter Avery. It has been an absolute pleasure getting to know them over the past few years and I was so excited to hear about the upcoming arrival of their second daughter!! Mom contacted me to share the wonderful news and book the Belly to Baby photography package, which includes both maternity and newborn sessions.
We started planning for their maternity photos and, as it worked out, it had snowed that weekend so we were able to get a beautiful winter background for their photos. It was pretty cold outside that afternoon, so Mom wanted to do part of her session outside at a park near her home as well as indoor for a more casual, lifestyle maternity session. I absolutely loved the relaxed, casual vibe of their in-home maternity photos and I think it really provided a nice balance to their posed winter photos outside. This was also a great opportunity for me to see the space at home where we would be taking photos during the newborn session. I do not often know what sort of home set up, lighting or space I will have to work with during the in-home sessions, so this was such a great way for me to plan my props and colors before little Peyton's arrival and scheduled newborn session.
Once Peyton was born, Mom contacted me to set up a morning for their newborn photos. I already had a look at Petyon's nursery during the maternity photos and we discussed what colors she liked as well as colors she wanted to avoid during the session, which made planning much easier for me! Mom also had a newborn photo of big sister Avery that I took using neutral color tones with lace and a bow headband that she wanted to try to coordinate with one of Peyton's setups. After taking some family photos in various spots around the house, including the living room, nursery and the parent's bedroom, we got started with Peyton's posed newborn photos. Mom selected a mauve color which we incorporated in a couple of different setups. This color looked beautiful against her skin tone and it was such a great color choice to coordinate with other delicate prop choices. Avery and Peyton are such beautiful girls and I am so grateful to be able to capture this special moment in their lives - watching Avery grow into a big sister and see their family welcome sweet baby Peyton into their home!
