I thought I’d start off the new year with a newborn. If you keep up with our Facebook Page, you may have seen some of the previews we posted from this session. While we still focus on weddings, we have started doing more and more kids sessions, and we are really enjoying them. It’s especially meaningful for us when we are photographing the children of past clients. For the past few months, I’ve been putting together backdrops, set pieces, and all kinds of goodies for newborn and baby sessions. This particular little guy is the son of one of our couples that was married in 2010. We were thrilled when they got in touch with us and told us they were expecting. Say hello to Baby Griffin.
So you know how I said I have been putting together sets and backdrops? Well the funniest part of this session was that Griffin wanted nothing to do with all that. So we ended up keeping things simple. He seemed happiest laying on his momma’s lap. When you are photographing newborns there are some tricks to the trade – such as feeding the baby right before so he’s nice and sleepy, keeping the room warm (we even pre-warm blankets), and having lots of soft towels and blankets nearby to gently position the baby. Griffin had no interest in all our little tricks. Maybe he was just really excited to get his picture taken- he was super alert for a newborn. He was awake for most of the session, so we were able to get great shots of those beautiful eyes of his.
These adorable hats were all purchased by Griffin’s mom on etsy. (Everyone who sees these photos wants to know about the hats!) We will definitely be getting some to keep at the studio.
Hope everyone had a good New Year, and thanks for stopping by our blog!
