Sweet baby V came into the studio when she was just a week old and I had such a nice time chatting with her parents. It was toasty warm in the studio so Ms. V was comfortable and she slept her way through the entire session. My favourite part of newborn sessions with first time parents is getting to take their first photo together as a family of three. I love the simplicity of the photos of her in her dad’s arms and how easily she curled into the wooden bowl; she was definitely a happy girl off in dreamland!  Ms. V had a special nickname before she was born and her grandma knitted her a little outfit for her newborn session so they could always remember what they called her for nine months before she arrived into her parents arms.

We featured V in her daddy’s arms on our Facebook page for Friday’s This or That – you can see the difference between the colour image and the black and white by clicking here.

These studio sessions take time, no matter how well the sweet newborn is sleeping, but there’s something in those quiet, patient moments between the family, baby and myself that I relish.  We carefully select props, and manage different backgrounds along the way to ensure the most custom, creative and loving images.  I think the smiles on these parents are beaming with pride for Ms. V!
