I love when parents book Maternity & Newborn Sessions because I get to watch them transform from their maternity photos to their newborn photos. Not just in the sense that a pregnant mother now becomes a mother to a baby, but the changes in their entire outlooks and a noticeable new joy to their expressions, mannerisms and lives.
I love watching parents completely transform as soon as they welcome their first baby into the world. Expecting a new little one, especially your first one, is bound to present it's own concerns and worries when it comes to completely changing your lives and priorities as soon as that little baby is born.
Of course, there is excitement. But I remember feeling nervous and scared about becoming a parent for the first time. That all subsided the moment I held my baby in my arms for the first time. I always look back fondly on that day. If I could do it all over again, I would.
Newborn Photography is such a beautiful gift that we, as parents, get to enjoy. It continually delivers us joy and nostalgia as the years go on and our babies grow up. I love giving parents a beautiful experience. While life has a whole lot of unexpected things awaiting them, especially in the realm of parenthood, I love giving an experience with a clear, laid out plan that I tackle from start to finish, and let the parents just soak it all in.
Families never have to lift a finger in my studio. The entire point of it is for them to enjoy the experience, and watch as their beautiful new baby gets photographed in adorable poses and props. They get to enjoy those photos, those perfect moments frozen forever, for them to treasure, cherish and hold close to their hearts forever. I find so much purpose and fulfilment in what I do - it's truly such a wonderful gift that I LOVE spoiling my clients with and making sure that they are 100% happy with not only the beautiful photos they take home but the fond memories they also take home with them, as well.
Sometimes, I feel guilty when clients say it's hard to pick their photos because I don't want any process of the experience to be difficult. But, I guess, I can take it as a compliment, as well, when I've done a great job and delivered a full gallery full of gorgeous images that they just can't say no to. I love that my galleries are full of variety, emotion, and uniqueness from one client to the next.
I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to work with this beautiful couple and meet their little baby girl. She is absolutely precious and was so great to work with. She cooperated for a large variety of poses and set-ups, and we got some great mugshots, as well (always a favourite!)
I absolutely love the family poses of this session. They are so close and intimate, and they clearly depict the love they have for each other and their baby girl. What a beautiful family!
Newborn Sessions typically take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours to shoot; baby always sets the pace and there is no rushing. There is plenty of time for baby to eat as needed, and take their time to settle. Parents can enjoy coffee and snacks while kicking their feet up to relax or an evening catching a quick nap on my comfortable loveseat.
I do my full posing workflow with each session because every family deserves to have a full gallery of beautiful pictures to choose from. Each family purchases exactly the photos that speak to them the most, and together we build a package to maximize the value and ensure that they don't have to leave anything behind.
I truly strive to give my clients the very best experience from start to finish. I have taken so much time to hone my skill and learn what I need to know as a professional in order to guide my clients in the very best way that I can, and it really warms my heart to see them happy and fully satisfied with their experience, their photos, and the beautiful ways that they can preserve, treasure and enjoy them every day for years to come.
Thank you so much to this beautiful couple for trusting me with their sweetest little baby girl. It was SO much fun working with them, and my cheeks still hurt from smiling at their reactions to their photos. I look forward to seeing them all again soon. :)
