When it comes to taking photos of a baby with their family, I am a stronger believer in less is more. No need for props, beanbags, special outfits. All that is needed, is gorgeous light and baby in the arms of family that love him. Without the pressure of ‘being posed’ and allowed to be themselves, children are naturally giving, they want to interact with the baby and they want to be a part of getting their photo taken. I loved this session because it it all of this and more.
I stopped offering family sessions last year and it was a really hard decision because there were so many families that I just love and being able to see their children grow every year was such a pleasure to see! But my heart really wasn’t in it and I didn’t think it was fair to my favorite clients to have a photographer that wasn’t 100% all in for their family session.
So imagine my surprise when one of the families who I’ve been photographing since 2015 sent an email asking if they could schedule a newborn session! They already had 2 little boys so I knew this session was extra special to them when they welcomed a girl into their family.
I pulled out the pink, grabbed everything girly and started stying their session and it really turned out to be one of my favorites. Not only did I get to see my favorite family, but after a slew of all boy sessions, I finally got to change things up and throw in some frilly wraps and bonnets in a session! 🙂
