I can’t love the photos from this newborn photo session any more! Everything from the soft pink, purple and cream colors used for baby girl’s posed newborn photos to how sweet, gentle and caring her older brother is. She slept like a dream, too!
We started off with family photos in their living room in their basement. The light filtering through the window made for beautifully backlit photos while the photos we took on the fireplace using the soft light falling over it made for another look and some variety. We then took a few photos of big brother and baby sister together on my rug while lying down. I take this shot from above since it’s the safest pose for an older sibling to “hold” his new baby sister or brother. I just loved his sweet expression as he looked down at his tiny sister.
We then took a few photos of just mom, dad and the new baby together while I had big brother work as an “assistant” helping me make his parents smile and laugh for their photos together.
After we were done with family photos, dad took big brother shopping, so mom and I could take photos of baby girl. I had mom top her off with a quick feeding to keep her full and happy while I set up for her posed photos. We got through all of the shots we needed to and then we took a few last ones of just mom and baby together.
We got all of this done in under 3 hours, which is what I always strive for in the Deluxe Newborn Sessions. Bonus for me was they lived right around the corner from my house in Maple Grove, so I was home quickly after the session!
Enjoy these favorites from their session!
