The story behind this session…
I always love a session where I can try something new! Baby girl Madeline’s middle name is Iris, which was also her grandmother’s name. Madeline’s mom reached out to me prior to the session and asked if we could incorporate her husband’s back tattoo of an iris into a portrait with Madeline. After some research, I chose the pose that I thought would show off both the baby and the tattoo well. Dad was actually surprised to find out when they arrived that he would be doing a shirtless photo for this session, but he was a good sport.
It took longer than expected to pose Iris on his shoulder and his muscles are so big (LOL) that his hand could just barely reach her, but mom held his arm up at the elbow while we got her in position and then she spotted only a few inches away while we took the photos. I’m excited how it turned out!
