I was eagerly anticipating this little girl’s newborn session! I saw this lovely family for their maternity and family photos right at that beautiful in between period of Summer and Fall so we knew we were going to be meeting their new addition to the family just in time for their annual Christmas cards to go out. I photograph this family every year for their holiday photos and with little Miss I arriving in November we just had to incorporate a bit of the holidays into their newborn session.

We started their newborn session with some more traditional and classic family photos before having big brother cuddle up to his new sister for the sweetest photos of the two of them together. The expressions Miss I gave us that day were priceless, she is already a little girl full of personality.

After their more traditional sibling photos were taken it was time for a quick outfit and set change. We were quickly overcome with how absolutely adorable this duo was! The photos of the two of them both in Santa outfits has to be one of the cutest things I’ve seen all year. I love all things Christmas so was thrilled to use some of my favourite holiday props for Miss I’s session including my sled and my tiny little Grinch and Reindeer props. 

After I finished up posing Miss I on the sled we made sure to include some classic and neutral photos of her on the posing cushion as well. She wasn’t quite sure at first that she wanted to go back to sleep for me but then she sweetly drifted off again in my warm studio. Her fair and delicate little features looked beautiful against the soft colours her parents chose for her fabrics and accessories. 

I’m already looking forward to our annual holiday session next November, I can’t wait to see them again soon!
