That little Smiley Baby Aden & his newborn portraits are finally completed! I think I grinned the whole way through editing! He’s just too cute for words. Baby Aden must have smiled a minimum of 10 times during his newborn photo shoot. He was such a little stud. “A baby fills a space in your heart you never knew was empty.” unknown
We started off with Aden all wrapped up in a gray swaddle & put him in this rustic little white wooden bed prop that I had made by a friend of mine’s husband. He’s pretty handy don’t you think! I used a collection of different fabrics i picked up at local antique and thrift shops to add texture and balance to the image without over powering the true focus, this little smiley baby Aden. (insert heart emoji here)
After these adorable poses and props I used one of my favorite apple buckets on my dark wood backdrop with some more textured layering fabrics. I carefully posed smiley baby Aden on his tummy in the bucket while dad stood close by just as a precaution. Safety is my number one priority when working with your precious little ones. Smiley baby Aden did such a good job at posing. His tiny little legs were still folding on their own like he was still in the womb. Next we focused on parent poses and decided to wrap him using a slate blue fabric.
Newborn Sessions last 3-6 hours depending on the baby, I like to work on their schedule. I prefer the baby to be no older than 14 days in order to capture those sleepy poses. However, if that is not possible we can absolutely do it a little later. These are done at my home studio, with mom & dad. To secure the safety & security of your new little bundle and to maximize on the small window of time we have during your session only mom & dad should be present. For those of you wanting to include siblings or other relatives for the newborn sessions the sibling add on package is available for an extra charge. I have a wide array of props, hats, headbands etc., for you to choose from but if you’d like to discuss other ideas we can chat at the time of your consultation. We will also discuss the feel, and color scheme you want for your babies first photos in order to customize them to fit your home.
