I am so delighted to be sharing images I captured during a newborn session held last month in my natural light studio. Baby Sören was the first super fresh baby I had photographed since I photographed my own baby boy. Most of the babies who have come into the studio recently have been between 2 months to 5 months old, so needless to say, this was exciting!
My approach to capturing newborns is more natural/lifestyle in nature. I love capturing babies in all their beauty with simplicity. If the baby is sleeping, we capture baby sleeping. If the baby is awake, we photograph baby while awake. For this session, baby started off soundly asleep, so soundly and sweetly asleep.
Somebody was obviously having some very sweet dreams.
And then he woke up and gave us a nice big stretch…
He wiggled his sweet little toes….
Gave me a peek at his glorious eyes….
And then got a little cheeky with me! I think I have a tendency to bring out this side of childrens’ personalities ; )
Diaper changes are common during a session, and I’ve got a nice little place for that in my studio.
Something about seeing fathers with their little babies is just so heart melting.
Baby and mom = perfect.
An amazingly beautiful family, won’t you say?
And I have to share with your the custom storyboard I created for mom + dad which consisted of some of their favourite images of the new addition to their family. The storyboard is a beautiful, simple and modern way to display several images within one print and truly tells your story. And this is definitely the beginning of a beautiful story!
