Calgary, Alberta Photographer Capturing Beautiful Newborn Photos
It brought me so much joy to shoot this newborn session for this beautiful couple. They welcomed their first baby girl at the end of August and it was my biggest pleasure to capture gorgeous baby photos for them.
Everly was absolutely amazing for her session, even though she had kept her parents up through all through the night prior. I had coffee ready and waiting for them, and they got to sit back and relax as I handled everything else.
Mom & Dad were open to so many different colours and ideas. They brought along their first baby, Bella, their adorable little dog. She sported her own stylish mohawk-hair style that had me melting. It was just too cute!
I love surprising parents with the beautiful photos that I capture during their newborn sessions. My studio offers a comfortable atmosphere where we can all just hang out, relax, and soak in all of the adorable setups and poses I accomplish throughout the session.
Everly was 19 days old, which was absolutely perfect for her session. I love when newborns are between days 14-21. I find that they cooperate very well after having established more of a feeding schedule, and it gives Moms a good amount of time to recover after birth, as well. The babies are still plenty small and squishy enough to accomplish all of the adorable poses that we all love.
But, as always, I love taking time to capture those adorable mugshot photos while baby is awake. It is not unusual for them to wake up at some point in the session, so we use this opportunity to grab some awake shots while also tuckering them out, all on their own, to get them back to sleep.
Mom & Dad admitted at their Ordering Appointment that they weren't quite sure how well the mugshots were going to turn out but they were pleasantly surprised and were so thrilled with the different expressions that they turned it into a beautiful Storyboard for their wall - one of my FAVOURITE ways parents can display their photos.
By coincidence, Dad wore the same shirt to their session that he had worn at the hospital the day baby Everly was born. After our session together, Everly's parents added me on Facebook (so I get to see little Everly grow from month to month!) and I noticed that he had worn the same shirt.
I brought it up at their Ordering Appointment, and they giggled over it as they realized how that had been just a coincidence but how much sweeter it made their family photos.
The last pose of the session had both Mom and me in tears - seeing Daddy with his tiny baby girl in his arms was just too sweet. I'm not sure if he knew how powerful it was to see him sitting there snuggling his baby girl. I took the shot and the strobe went off, and Mom and I both just knew that it was an incredible photo.
At the Ordering Appointment, it was that photo (the black and white one of Dad snuggling into Everly) that had the tears brimming her eyes. There is nothing sweeter than seeing a new dad with his baby. I am so happy that I was able to capture that for them, and it is such a beautiful Daddy-Daughter portrait.
We laughed and chatted SO much during our session and these clients were SO MUCH fun to work with. I am so thankful that I had the chance to work with them and that they loved every single moment of their experience and their memories. They kept melting over how easy the entire process was, and how pleased they were with everything and that makes me feel so fulfilled and happy.
Thank you so much to this beautiful family for trusting me with their baby girl and their precious memories. Their first family photos, and the lasting memories of their baby girl that they can enjoy every day for years to come and pass down to Everly. I am so thankful. Thank you for choosing Hocus Focus Photography. I am so happy to have you part of the family. :)
