I first met Mom and Dad when I was pregnant with my oldest and Mom came in for a pin up shoot. Mom is an amazing actress and a model, Dad is a pilot. I love their creativity and the fact they will be raising Miss P to love dinosaurs and comic books. It was a lot of fun following their pregnancy on social media.
Mom decided to do Miss P's newborn shoot when she was just shy of 4 weeks old, and brought her big sister Ninja (Miss P's dog and future best friend).
Mom and Dad came in with some beautiful and creative ideas for Miss P's first photo shoot, Miss P had other plans for her shoot. She was cluster nursing that day and only wanted to be held, nursed and cuddled.
That was fine with me, we changed gears and did what made Miss P the most comfortable and happy. I loved that she was so content in her parents' arms. I also loved that I could tell how she was positioned in utero.... even though she was almost a month old, she was still a new baby in my eyes.
Since Dad is a pilot, Mom really wanted to get pics of Miss P in an aviator helmet hat made from a friend of theirs. It wasn't going to happen during our shoot, I suggested we come back to reshoot.
Working with children, there is always the option to reshoot... no reason to stress during the shoot, we can always get the shot on another day.
Here are some of my favorite images, I was honored that Mom chose me to document this special moment as a first time parents and of their little girl. She has worked with a lot of amazing photographers, thank you for choosing me.
