Okay you guys, so I loved everything about this session. This session was an essential session (baby only package one) that took place in the studio.
Mom wanted simple, neutrals as well as awake baby shots. Of course, neutrals are my absolute favorite. It also helped that her little man made things so easy. He was super chill and made the best (seriously! totally the best) faces. I loved all those forehead wrinkles and his big eyes were just ah-mazing. I don’t think I have ever enjoyed editing a session as much as I did this one. Every image was just so stinking cute.
For neutral colors, we stuck with browns and greys. I kept things nice and simple with the only prop being a super organic-looking basket made from driftwood. Side note, I’m going to use the driftwood basket more. I bought it a while ago and put it away and forgot about it. I really love the natural look that it adds and then it goes with everything!
The white blanket was made by the baby’s maternal grandmother. It had been Mom’s blanket as a baby. It was such a special item to incorporate into the session and it looked terrific just as it was. I love how it stands out against that grey backdrop.
