This sweet family had me over to do newborn photos several weeks after giving birth. They wanted to capture their little one more alert and active, and that certainly payed off with lots of smiles and open eyes.
I met at their house in the morning and we photographed for about 2 hours. We encouraged a cozy, relaxed vibe, took a slow pace and moved between the bedroom, living room and nursery.
At times I got to know them better by seeing their own family's old film photos, and chatting with their extended family who was also present. We also collaborated on some shots to mimic the film photos they shared. It's so fun to work together to make something meaningful and to help someone accomplish their vision.
