My family has grown! My new nephew is here, and he is the most precious baby! Sterling’s biggest brother was one of the first babies I photographed in my photo studio- how amazing that I have had the opportunity to photograph my sister-in-law’s family through all of these years.
Being the 4th child, I assumed he would be an easy going sleeper- boy was I wrong! Sterling was wide awake, not wanting to miss a thing. We finally tired him out, and I was able to capture a few sleepy poses before he woke, ready to party again.
Every newborn is different, and every photography session is different. That is what makes it so fun! Even if you don’t have a sleepy baby, I can capture some cute expressions, and eventually, some sleepy images. Patience and persistence is key- as is being in tune with what baby needs. I love my job, and can’t imagine doing anything else.
Here are a few of my favorites from this recent photoshoot.
Oh my, little Lorelei is a living doll. Such a sweet little baby- she totally stole my heart.
She was a dream to photograph, loved to curl up on her back and sleep soundly.
Twin Boys Newborn Portrait Session
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- I’m fascinated by twins! I am in a special position, spending time with newborn twins – I get the chance to see how they behave and react when alone, and with their sibling. These boys- as with every other set of twins I’ve photographed- were definitely more settled and relaxed when they were laying next to each other. The physical bond they share in the womb is drastically changed when they are born- becoming apart, and most often, not curled up with their sibling. I do enjoy photographing each baby separately, capturing their individual features and tiny little faces. But those pictures with them curled sweetly together…. they are so special to me, and I’m sure their family too!
Here are just a few of my favourites from this twin boy newborn photoshoot.
Are you expecting twins? It’s a good idea to book your session well in advance since twins can be born early. Speak with your photographer about when you’d like the babies photographed- the window for photographing multiples is usually larger than a singleton. Give me a call or send a message – I’d love to chat!
Little Miss B had the most gorgeous fine, strawberry blonde hair. I loved working with her and her family. Here are a few images from her newborn photo session!
