I was amazed to see how much strawberry blonde hair this sweet girl had when she was born! Meet Ellison, Ellie for short. Her mother and I first met while working at Grove Elementary. I am always honored when friends ask me to photograph their families, especially when they trust me to photograph their newborns.
I photograph newborns in their home as I like to capture them within a few weeks from their day of birth. This also means that I never know what space or lighting I may have to work with in each family’s home. When I started this session, the sun was behind the clouds but as soon as I set everything up (not an easy task), the sun came out and created harsh light on my bean bag. Luckily, we were able to use a white sheet to put over the large window in their living room to create a softer light which worked beautifully and saved me time from moving all the blankets and backdrop stands. Ellie’s mom had a cute embroidered onesie that we photographed her in before we took portraits in her birthday suit. Once we got this sweet baby to sleep, she did wonderfully.
Thank you Lauren for choosing me as your newborn photographer!
