Every parent should have a healthy sense of pride in their child. We can’t help wondering who our newborns will grow up to be, what they’ll do, and how they’ll change the world, and it only adds to the wonderful journey of growing as a family. I was especially excited for Hudson’s session, as I already had the pleasure of meeting and working with his wonderfully creative parents in his big sister Juliet’s newborn session years back.
Shirley and Alex wanted to build on Juliet’s session style, but make it more personalized for Hudson: “I really love the style photos you did last time for Juliet,” Alex says, “Only instead of pink we can do gold. Hudson will be a Lion. A leader. Something epic would be cool.” With a white, gray, and gold color palette and a strong theme in mind, we brainstormed to create the perfect session for Hudson, and I loved what we came up with.
For our first scene in the studio, we swaddled baby Hudson in white, and gently laid him on a bed of wispy and furry fabrics, to create a textured backdrop to play off his smooth, gorgeous skin tone. It was the perfect scene to get some closeups, capturing his tiny details and strong, handsome features and itty bitty toes.
Next, we posed this precious little boy on a gray backdrop, with a cozy blue-knit nightcap, to emphasize this silent, sleepy moment. Hudson was a little angel in this session, and I couldn’t take enough shots of this cute, sleeping baby. One of the highlights of the shoot was Hudson surrounded by gold. I loved the atmosphere of the scene, where Hudson was laid in a basket of soft, white fabrics, surrounded by gold flakes, giving it an epic, powerful feel.
Some of my favorite shots from this session were of the whole family. It’s been such a joy to watch this wonderful family grow, and an even greater joy to capture their love for each other. Juliet has gotten so big, and you can tell how much she loves being a big sister to Hudson. We got some individual shots of Hudson with his big sister, with Alex, and with Shirley. We also got some natural shots of this gorgeous family just being themselves, making memories they’ll cherish for years to come. With all of the love that they have to give, I know that Hudson is going to really enjoy being a part of this amazing family.
