This newborn session was a DREAM. When I arrived at this family’s home to take photos of 7 day old Mikayla, dad was holding back their 2.5 year old little boy and their pup as I brought in all my gear, immersed in the normal chaos of adjusting to life with a new family member. We started with family photos so dad could go to work, and I just love the images we made!
With older siblings, it’s sometimes so hard to get a good shot (candy is your friend!), but it helps to talk and play with the sibling a bit, get them excited to take pictures with the new baby. Here’s a capture of baby Mikayla and big brother. So darling.
Mikayla slept pretty much the entire time only breaking to top up on milk a couple time, she did amazing. Here are a few of my favourites from their session!
I love it when I catch a smile! This girl gave us a few throughout our session!
Cannot get enough of this pose. Oh my goodness.
The shot above is definitely a favourite of mine, so natural and such soft light, it goes so well with the purple wrap!
Mom and I were both LOVING this headband!!
