Last week I took photos of this little guy. He was a tough nut to crack, but in the end he was too tuckered out to fight me on the posing. Here’s a sneak peek from his session. More photos to come soon.
Last week I had the pleasure to meet this little baby boy and photograph his newborn photos with his mom and dad. You might recall their winter maternity photo session taken a few months ago. He was 14 days old for this photo shoot and he was a real fighter in wanting to stay awake for the photo shoot, but we were still able to get some sleepy baby poses of this little man.
My absolute FAVOURITE photo from this newborn photo shoot is the one of him surrounded by beautiful African art. You see, this couple lived and worked in Africa for a few years before returning home to Canada. When I saw the beautiful African art in their home, I knew that I had to incorporate these things into at least of the portraits in order to make it more personal as well as it’s so darn cool looking. Enjoy.
A few months ago I photographed little baby O who was already one month old at the time. Since he was older than a regular newborn baby, he wasn’t into being all sleepy as most newborns are when they are a few days old. But I was still able to get some cute shots of this little guy.
His mother is a designer and she made the cute tree and owl mural in his bedroom. I love it. Very cute.
Last week I did a photo session with this little sweetie. She was just nine days old. Despite having a couple of toddlers running around in the house, this little girl was a trooper who was still able to stay sleepy for most of the photo session. Yay for sleepy babies. By the way, my favourite one is the sock monkey photo. I have wanted to do this setup for quite a while.
For anyone looking to have newborn photos taken of their baby, the best time to have photos taken of them is when they are 3-10 days old. This is when babies are the most sleepy, so it is easier to get those cute sleepy baby photos. If babies are older than that, they will be more likely to stay awake during their photo shoot, which can still be quite cute, but for parents wanting sleeping baby poses, they may be a little disappointed.
I suggest for pregnant women to either book their newborn photo session in their last month of pregnancy or book the session as soon as the baby is born, in order to ensure that their baby can be photographed within that 10 day limit.
Enjoy the photos of this precious little one and her big sis. 🙂
