This Reading family recently welcomed home a beautiful baby girl. I was in awe of big brother and how well he listened during our newborn photography session. You can see how much he adores his baby sister in these portraits. We got some beautiful family portraits against a white backdrop. Then we focused on the baby by herself. Neutral colors always create stunning images when you’re photographing newborns. We used a variety of textures and monochrome colors when we placed this baby girl in the twig basket. I just finished designing an album for the family which will be cherished for generations to come!
Having a home studio is great especially when the wild flowers in your backyard are in bloom! We did our normal newborn session inside and then we ventured outside to take some portraits of mom and baby in the outdoors. I love how the sun beams are shining down on them. This couple had a watercolor made of the embryo which was produced from the ultrasound image. They had a special request to incorporate the watercolor into the newborn session. I enjoy thinking of creative ways to accomplish special requests. Dad is a firefighter and brought his badge to incorporate into the portraits as well.
Mom and dad wanted to document their baby girls first christening with a portrait of her in this beautiful white dress. I thought it would be nice to add some pop of color with this red and yellow tulips. Big brother also came along to get some sibling photographs. It’s hard to believe a couple of years ago we took his first christening portrait. Now he is old enough to show off some of his dance moves!
Here is a session I did in early spring. Winter is much longer here in Boston but you can still manage to get some artistic portraits during an outdoor session. I love the warmth of the colors in this portrait of this grandmother with her daughter and two granddaughters. I think it is so important to document the generations of family. We headed inside to the studio to capture a few more images.
I photographed this family for their Fresh 48 Session. A few days later we brought them into the studio to photograph the newborn session. I just love how big brother holds his baby sister so gently. Dad is from Texas so we tried to incorporate his cowboy boots into the newborn session. I don’t normally allow dogs but I have been photographing this family for a while now and have gotten to know Enzo very well. I think he did a pretty good job posing for the camera.
This adorable little girl just had celebrated her first birthday this weekend! Mom was planning an amazing party and wanted to use the images of cake smash session to help decorate for the party. We did a similar set up for big sister when she first turned one. We asked her to join in for a few cute sibling portraits. I just love how her blue eyes pop against the pink icing and backdrop! We started the session with some beautiful light and airy portraits of mom and grandma and then focused on the girls.
We decided to hit beach to do a family portrait session. Stage Fort Park has a large variety of settings to choose from. I brought a few props which make for adorable portraits. Who can resist a little boy playing with his wooden sail boat. We got some wonderful images of him with his mom and dad. He was all smiles! I just ordered their wall display and I can’t wait for it to arrive.
This family contacted me and wanted to do a family portrait, some images to celebrate mom’s recent birthday as well as a cake smash session for their son’s first birthday. We decided to head to the beach and attempt all the above. I just love this little boys delight he was all smiles! I brought some of my nautical props to give us a variety of looks. The best part about a cake smash session on the beach is the very end. Look at the last photo in this blog post…
