Remember that beautiful Winter Maternity Session I shared awhile back? Well, this is the darling little one who was tucked inside that beautiful baby bump! I was so happy to finally have him in my studio.
We had to wait for the scariest and intense part of Covid to be passed, but finally, we were given the OK to go ahead with our session. Even though Aviraj was 5 weeks old, he did great! There was a point where he was wide awake and taking in his surroundings, but I was still able to get some beautiful poses while he was asleep, as well.
This session was a little bit on the longer side, but that's perfectly fine. I don't really put any of my newborn clients on a "timer". Every baby responds so differently to being touched, and even their age plays a big role in how they might respond to being moved and posed during their session.
If a baby needs more time to eat, settle, and get comfortable that is perfectly fine. I let the baby set the pace of the session, and I find that it results in a more relaxed session and beautiful photographs. And, I'm sure the parents appreciate the extra time put into their session, as well. After all, these are their precious keepsakes of their new baby we are talking about!
Aviraj's parents had specifically requested lots of golden and warm colours, especially my FAVOURITE mustard yellow backdrop! I use this backdrop so often, and it never gets old. So I was more than happy to oblige!
It also ties together with their Maternity Session, where Mom wore a yellow gown. So this is a great way to refer to each session between each other, and makes a beautiful wall piece or spread in an album!
Beautiful black and white details to capture all of the tiny, adorable, new baby features and details! I LOVE THIS!
Just look at how baby's tiny little toes fit between his Daddy's fingers!
It's definitely no mystery where Aviraj gets his good looks from ;)
His parents have been so wonderful and easy to photograph, from the beginning of their maternity session to the final family portraits of their newborn session. They were such excellent clients and they made my heart sing with their enthusiastic grins.
When I dropped off their final products and images, I was greeted with big smiles and Mom couldn't wait to rip open the packaging and see her beautiful order. It's always such a fulfilling and rewarding gift to be able to see the joy that exudes from new parents as they dive into their precious memories, knowing that they will enjoy these for a long, long, long time!
