These two parents were the recipients of a baby shower gift of a newborn photography session for their little lady from another couple whose baby boy I photographed back in February. The gift-giver told me that Dad was a photographer hobbyist himself so I was looking forward to the chance to swap photog talk with him… and you could tell how special it was for them to receive this gift and to be able to turn the picture-taking over to someone else so we could capture this whole trio together in their first days as a family.
And they COULDN’T have been more awesome to work with. The entire session, we interacted like old friends – and I loved to see their laid-back, comfortable approach to the session and the excitement in their eyes to see their baby girl getting photographed. Adorable to the tenth degree!
This little one was so sweet and calm the entire session and we spent 10 minutes gushing over how cute she looked in these headbands before even photographing her.
And OHHH this nursery! This amazing pink-and-white nursery had such a softness about it that perfectly complemented the sweetness of this little girl. It was full of personalized touches with custom art made by friends and bedding made my grandma! We spent a good first half of the session capturing family moments, and this sweet angel all comfortable in her new digs…
A lot of times during photo sessions, it’s the first time that Mom and Dad get to really (actually) stop, take a break from all of the visitors and the chaos of changing diapers and figuring out a new schedule… and just soak in the fact that their little bundle is HERE. And you got that sense from these two as these images were taken… both Mom and Dad had “moments” when watching their other half cuddle up to their baby girl and let it sink in not only how lucky they were to have her, but to have her together…
Do I work with the most beautiful Moms or what?
…. and the sweetest Dads (ever)
I’ll spare you guys of the final image from this session, but we had a HILARIOUS conclusion to this session when this little lady decided to unleash the fury all over Dad’s shirt and jeans. Luckily, Dad is an awesome sport as Mom and I sat back and laughed (and photographed!) rather than helping him out! I’m pretty sure they’ll never forget it! (especially this guy!)
You guys were nothing short of awesome to work with – not to mention that little angel of yours was amazing to photograph. So happy to have had the chance to meet you and look forward to hopefully seeing you guys again down the line. Congrats on all that has been, and all that is to come for all three of you! And Dad… remember, ISO is your friend 🙂 Until next time…
