Baby H arrived right on his due date, which is definitely not something that happens very often! I was so happy to meet him and his parents when they came into the studio for his newborn session when he was only six days old.

His mom and dad brought along a special wedding gift that was given to them by a friend on their wedding day. When clients bring in these memorable props, I’m always happy to incorporate them. We created a very special photo of baby H laying on top of the guitar. This image, a composite, is actually the combination of three images.

Safety first: Any images of a baby laying on top of an item should always be taken with a parent holding baby in place and then a combination of images is combined in Photoshop to create a version of the photo without the parents hands. In this case I photographed the guitar on its own, baby H with dad holding his head and shoulders and then another shot of baby H with his dad holding his bum. It was definitely a team effort to create this work of art and I’m thrilled with the results; not only is it a beautiful photo but it has so much meaning to his mom and dad.
