I saw an image I liked on Pinterest and thought I would try it out on my 3 week old niece Camilla..... Upon starting the shoot, I realized that I am not that photographer that copies others work.
I find the images of the sleeping newborns on props/in baskets/wrapped in blankets adorable, I just realized it's not my style when photographing newborns. Even though they are new to this world, they still have little personalities wrapped up in a sweet little bundle. I love photographing newborns when they are awake, they look around searching for the light, colors, for their parents.
To capture a smile when they hear their Mother's voice is an absolute treat for me.
I planned on photographing this little peanut for Valentine's Day, but her personality took over and I shot portraits of her instead..... we also took a couple of breaks for cuddles and a snack.
My sister put her in an adorable monogrammed onesie a neighbor purchased for her. I photographed her in her older brothers' room and on her brother Lucca's red Pottery Barn chair.
I can't wait to receive Camilla's birth announcement so I can also share those darling family photos as well.
