This family came to the studio the other day to capture some newborn photos. The parents warned me ahead of time that their toddler was not thrilled about the idea. They didn’t have high hopes of getting any photos of her with the baby….or at all for that matter. Of course…I am always up for a challenge!
One of the reasons that I encourage home lifestyle sessions when toddlers are involved is because my studio is small and hot. It’s totally set up for the newborn which can make it difficult for the toddler. I encourage parents to bring the sibling either at the beginning or the end of the session and then have someone else whisk them away. That way I still have time to work with the baby in a more peaceful setting. Needless to say….I was thrilled to capture one great photo of this sweet girl. I also managed to get her into a few family photos and one absolutely hilarious photo that pretty much summed up our time together!Once we finished that up, we moved on to some baby focused photos with her parents.I love this one…two beautiful smiling ladies!I have some props that are fun to transition through the milestone photos and this crown is one of them. It was too big for her head now but as she grows it can make an appearance at each stage, showing how much she has changed.Just look at this sweet angel. I couldn’t decide if I liked this one better in color or black and white so I included both. Slightly different shots of course.Newborn sessions still rock my world. Snuggling babies makes my job the best.
Thank you for sharing your girls with me!
