North Shore Newborn Photographer :: Baby T
It’s not always easy to have a baby. It seems like it should be pretty simple, right? Well not always. This I know personally as it was not easy for us and there was quite a bit of heartache involved. All’s well that ends well though and we ended up with our two beautiful girls. But it’s not something that is easily forgotten – the heartache. This mama contacted me while she was on the hunt for a newborn photographer. And she told me her story, that she had been given a less than 5% chance of getting pregnant, WITH the assistance of IVF. So when they got pregnant on their own, well, they had a miracle baby on their hands. Naturally they were ecstatic over the news and wanted to capture baby girl’s first big milestones with professional photography. I am humbled and honored that they chose me 🙂
Needless to say, I was really looking forward to meeting this family. They were fantastic to work with for not only baby T’s newborn portraits, but her 3 month photos and I see her again very soon for her 6-9 month sitter session.
About this Session
For Miss T’s newborn session, I started off with some family portraits. In general, I do this with most sessions. It helps put parents at ease to have their portion completed. And then they can relax. Yes, relax! This isn’t always easy with a newborn but my goal is for you to have a relaxing experience during your session with me.
For the styling, the whole family was clad in black tops, which makes for cohesive family portraits. I really love this for newborn portraits as the baby pops and it’s all about the baby for this milestone.
For the rest of the session, the color scheme was primarily neutral colors. I used mainly white, with some dark gray and subtle pops of color throughout. The light pink swaddle worked perfectly against the dark gray, creating both a contrast in color and also in texture. The same is true of the brighter pink bonnet against the white fur. Texture is such a good way to create depth and variety.
Mama also had some specific color requests to match the baby’s nursery. There were also some hand made items to incorporate including the teal blanket below.
Welcome to the world miracle baby T!
That newborn smile for daddy!
