There’s nothing like the smiles on the faces of new parents. You can see this beautiful happiness every time you look at Brian and Caroline, and their precious newborn Keira. Mom and Dad met while Brian was studying in Ireland, just 9 years ago. They were married 6 years later after being friends for 3, and have been head over heels for each other ever since. They said that they love to capture special moments, so it was no wonder that they wanted a newborn session for lovely Keira, including her now-best-friend Millie, their golden retriever.
For one of those special moments, we wrapped Keira up in a lace veil that belongs to her mom. She says, “The day of our wedding was extremely windy and because of it, I don’t have any photographs outside of the church with my cathedral-length veil.” Caroline had the wonderful idea of wrapping Keira in her veil, which I thought was one of the most precious things! To fit it, we focused on a light palette, with whites, creams, and pastel pinks. The star of every scene though was beautiful Keira, wrapped up tight in soft fabrics or her loving parents arms.
We wanted to get some closeup shots of baby’s tiny toes, hands, and lips. It was such a joy to pose little Keira, placing her tiny hands on her face to cradle her chin, and into a sleepy pose. Caroline and I agreed that those are some of the sweetest pictures, and I wanted to make sure to get plenty of them. Mom says, “My husband was instantly drawn into your photos and knowing me – it was the exact style of photographs he had envisioned for our newborn photo shoot.” We had the chance to brainstorm ideas together, and what came out of it was a gorgeous set of pictures.
In a couple of the scenes in the studio we used some white fur to add some texture to the backdrop, and a pink bow to tie everything together. Some of my favorites, though, were the ones with Millie in them. The picture of joy, she beamed over Keira, standing guard while she lay in the soft wicker basket. The best shots were the ones with the whole family, with Mom, Dad, Millie, and precious Keira all together in one special moment.
The grandparents joined in on the fun, so we ended up getting a lot of shots of some one-on-one time with baby. Knowing who raised Brian and Caroline, it’s no wonder that they are already such great parents. Caroline says, “We already feel protective of our little girl and want the absolute best for her. What I love most is knowing that she is half of me and half of the man I love.” You can tell in a moment just how much they love their little girl, and that happiness is what shown through Keira’s wonderful newborn session.
