If I had to pick something to do for the rest of my life, chances are it would be newborn photography. It’s the perfect blend of each of my greatest passions, from setting up a scene, to working out the best way to capture those tiny features, all the way to the time spent with the family and their precious new human. So when I got a call from a family whose photographer canceled last minute, I jumped at the chance to give them the session they deserved.
I was happy to fit them into the schedule, even though it was during the holiday crunch for family portraits and cards. They were so grateful to have a session for their lovely daughter, who had just been born. Because it was during the holiday season, we went ahead and created one set design for a joint birth announcement/holiday card, and they were so thrilled with how it turned out! For the newborn session, we wanted to go for a variety of scenes, as well as a holiday theme with Christmas colors.
I loved setting up the pink floral theme, which had the perfect color tones and textures to play off of her light skin tone, and I was even able to get a gorgeous shot of her precious little feet. We also went for a bit of a white space scene, with a pop of green on her headband, and a bit of lace around her to add a some texture. Then we got the whole family in the shot (besides their Pomeranian puppy!), and set up a lovely green backdrop full of Christmas lights for that whimsical feel. Mom and Dad looked so in love with their little bundle of joy, and their daughter looked wonderful.
It’s stories like this that make me love my job so much! I was thrilled to meet such a precious need for this lovely family, and it was a joy getting to know them. If you’re in need, don’t hesitate! Contact me here to set up your session today.
