Baby Ella is here!
Welcome to the world, Baby Ella! I’m so excited to share this session with you. These clients have been working with me since I first started and contacted me in the fall to tell me they were expecting a sweet baby girl in January. Baby Ben was photographed back in 2013, for his newborn session, and I was very excited to get to work with them again. Since Ben’s newborn session, we’ve also done a 6 month session and a family and cake smash first birthday session! It’s one of my favorite things about this job – getting to experience families (and individuals) blossoming.
Welcome to the world!
Baby Ella was so beautiful and so good at being awake haha. She was cooperative the whole time and didn’t mind us moving her around all over the place. We did a few in her crib, swaddled in a beautiful cloth. We weren’t sure the headband was going to make it all the way through, but it did and it ended up looking so perfect.
Ben & Baby Ella
Big brother gave us a little bit of trouble, we had to do a little bit of coaxing and bribing, but in the end, he took some really cute ones with his little sister:
It’s hard to nail down my favorites from the day because I felt like I had a lot of them, but we did a few in front of their fireplace and they were so pretty. The baby was wrapped in a plaid blanket and it was just so perfect.
We took a little break while the baby recharged and Ben went off and played with some toys. I decided to take a few while he was in his natural element.
We finished off the session by grabbing some family photos and getting a few with just the parents and the baby. I remember it being not the best day weather-wise, but it gave us a lot of great light to work with. Some of my very favorite lighting in those last couple images.
Thinking about growing families has inspired me to do a series of posts that shows the progression of some of the families I’ve gotten to work with and to #celebratefamilies. I’m always looking for ways to spread positivity and I think will help to do that. Look for it on the blog and instagram in the future!
