I’m not going to lie. My favorite newborn photography session subjects are my birth photography clients. There is something about being present when a baby enters the world, that creates a connection with that family that is a little deeper than my other clients.
Baby Grayson joined us in June. He was teeny tiny and just perfect. When his mommy asked me to squeeze them in last minute for a newborn shoot, I was more than happy to.
On the session day, Grayson and his big brother came to the studio ready to go. It took a fair bit for Grayson to fall asleep so I got to visit with Carson. He is an amazing little guy. I honestly think he was the best behaved kid that has entered my studio. His love for his little brother was evident as well.
Once baby had a chance to settle in, we started with a surprise for big brother. His new baby (wink, wink) had brought him a present. While Carson opened his new toy, I took photos. This was all mom and dad’s idea. Mom mentioned it prior to the session and it went really well. The photos are going to make a great addition to the family album.
Grayson’s nursery colours are grey and mint. In addition to my wraps, mom and dad brought a blanket that had been made just for Grayson. They also brought a hat and booties that his dad had worn as a baby. I love it when my clients bring special items. It makes the photos more personal.
Here are a few of my favorite photos from Grayson’s session. There’s also one from the series of big brother opening his gift.
