Baby Jack was such a sweet cuddle bug for his newborn session. One of the largest newborns I have photographed to date, Jack slept like a champ and was quite alert at times as well. Every baby is different and I tailor the newborn photography session to accommodate what each baby likes as far as positions as well as props that are safe for their size. I used my largest basket for baby Jack (this is the same basket that I fit twins in together for comparison) to ensure he was safe and to provide some variety to the gallery.
Towards the end of the three hour session, we incorporated family portraits with newborn Jack. These are sometimes the sweetest moments as I get to see the new parents interact with their new baby. We were even able to get the family dog in the photos. I only allow this if the pet is well mannered, follows voice commands, and gentle around the newborn. Though we did have to use many treats, the end results were sweet shots with the whole family.
It is not uncommon for parents to choose a color palette for the newborn photography that matches the nursery or home decor. This works well when planning ahead and knowing you want wall art. In this case, Jack’s parents know they are moving in the next year. Therefore, they chose an heirloom album containing their favorite images from the session. Once again, the color scheme used during the session allowed for the album pages to coordinate throughout the album.
Thank you Simpson family for allowing me to be a part of this journey with you! Here are a few of my favorites from Jack’s session in Greenville.
