This newborn session has become one of my favorites. I love the simplicity of the whites and muted tones of gray and pink for baby Olivia. And I love how mom and dad wore white shirts to keep it clean and simple for their family photos. My absolute favorite color for babies is white. It goes with all skin tones, it goes well with all colors, it can be cool or warm, it’s just…timeless. White reminds me of things that are fresh and new, just like a brand new baby. So, if you’re ever in doubt as to what to wear to your own baby photo session, just go with white (I also have a maternity session I’ll be blogging soon with mom in a gorgeous white maternity gown.)
I drove to downtown Minneapolis for this posed newborn photo shoot. You can’t go wrong on the 29th floor with floor to ceiling windows for a photo shoot. The light was ah-mazing as well as the large open spaces and soft colors throughout their apartment. This couple was one of the sweetest I’ve met to date and I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised to find they hail from Canada. I think next to us Minnesotans, Canadians are just about the nicest people you will ever meet. Oh Canada…
I truly hope to be able to work with this couple again for more family photos and milestone photos of their sweet baby girl. In the meantime, check out some of my favorites from our newborn session together. Enjoy!
