One of my favorite assignments these days is photographing newborns. Sure it can be a messy job, but I am rewarded with the perfectly still, serenely beautiful portraits at the end of each session. Little Ellie surely wins the award for cooperation. She slept like a log 90% of the time we were shooting. It allowed me to be a little more creative & gave the chance to put Ellie in various set-ups. But this first shot is one of my favorites- I even like her belly button scab. It tells the viewer just how new she is to the world!
I noticed this gorgeous wooden table the couple has in their living room. I liked that it was raw wood, unfinished but beautiful in it’s basic state. I thought the contrast would be nice again the soft pink skin of a newborn.
Kalyn has taken to motherhood extremely well, she is already a wonderful mother. I’ve gotten to know Kalyn quite well over tha last few months as we’ve worked together on a project for Style Me Pretty (we will unveil mid-April!) She owns the wonderfully creative paper & stationary company, Lilah Paper. If you need paper goods for your event or simply beautiful new letterhead, she is the person to talk to!
Brand new papa bear 🙂 I love seeing a new father gently embrace his first child.
Again on the wooden table with a different texture- I think I prefer this one. And this time I caught a brief smile!
I pulled back & threw on my telephoto lens for this family shot. I wanted to capture something intimate without being too close. This was achieved by ‘leading into the shot’ & encouraging my family to snuggle.
