It was so wonderful to finally meet this little guy! Just weeks before he was born, I photographed this beautiful family for their maternity session. Mom, dad and big brother had eagerly awaited the arrival of their newest little buddy. And boy, was he ever loved! You can tell his big brother adored him by the way he interacted with “his new baby.” It was so sweet to photograph the brothers together. And HOLY MOLY did they ever look alike! I can’t wait to see what they look like as they grow older.
The family arrived for their newborn session in my Abbotsford studio. I always keep it warm and comfortable, serving coffee & tea for my sleep deprived parents. Because, I remember those days of exhaustion that come on the heels of having a new baby in the house. Newborn babies are a lot of work…worth it, but still a lot of work. Because I am a mom myself, I make sure the parents are comfortable and well taken care of during my newborn sessions. It’s a time for them to sit back and rest while I pose their baby and capture every ounce of their baby’s cuteness.
I absolutely loved the neutral, earthy tones the parents selected. Because really now, you can’t get any cuter than a little boy in dark green. And of course, let’s just take a second to swoon about the grey! SIGHHHHH. I LOVE LOVE LOVE photographing grey! It is my favourite colour by far because I find it so versatile no matter the baby’s gender. I have hand knit grey hats for boys and beautiful, dainty grey headbands for girls! But of course my studio has a wide variety of colours to choose from…perfect for every person’s taste.
Ultimately, this session was a dream! From capturing parents with their new little one, to a big brother lovin’ on his new little pal, it was amazing to have them in the studio. And I am so excited because this little guy will be in my studio twice more this year! One session when he’s sitting up, and then his last one as a cake smash! I love it when I get to spend so much time with my clients because I photograph them numerous times. But the best is when clients become my friends. Enjoy!
