After meeting this sweet little one’s parents at their maternity session I couldn’t wait to have them back for their newborn session. The warm and cozy studio was a much different setting than their outdoor Winter maternity session but I love how the whites from some of the fabrics incorporated into their newborn session are reminiscent of the snow covered backdrops of their maternity photos.

Mr. A was born with a beautiful full head of hair and the most adorable newborn fuzz! New babies change so quickly so I wanted to make sure to capture all of his tiny and unique features so that his parents could forever remember them. From the way he curls his tiny toes, to how small his hand looks in his mom and dad’s hands, to his sweet pursed lips: these are the things as a parent that you love to be able to look back on as your child grows up (too quickly!).

These first time parents were naturals and cuddled up with Mr. A for their family and parent photos before we moved to taking photos of him alone on the posing fabric and in props. His newborn photos are the perfect mix of simple and natural blended with more bold colours and props, rich layers, and dramatic composite images. I love the variety in his photos!
