I’ve mentioned before that I love the personal intimacy that shines through when photographing baby’s first few days at home. We can quickly incorporate little meaningful details, like a handmade knit blanket for baby, artwork in the nursery, or even a visiting Grandma!, all without the hassles of packing up your new little family to shoot elsewhere. Baby William’s first photo session happened to be on one of the darkest, most miserable days of the year so far, but I think we managed to capture the love & joy that filled his home when he was just 7 days old. :)
I also had the pleasure of documenting his parents’ maternity session just a few weeks before – such a treat to follow along through my clients’ happiest days!
Here are a few favourites from William’s newborn photos… I love his progression from alert & aware to cuddley little sleepyhead. So sweet.
