If you follow me on Instagram, you probably have seen way too many photos of this girl and this blog post is not news to you. BUT, instagram is really the only place I’ve shared much about our newest family member, Charis. (Well there was that one night she went missing and I posted on Facebook for help finding her and the post was shared over 1k times… whaaaat? And we DID find her!)
Oh I adore this family newborn shoot!
When Whitney first inquired, she shared with me that she had a challenging experience for their oldest’s newborn session years earlier. While I am always on a mission to ease any stress my clients may have, I was really focused on this for Whitney’s sake. I know even the thought of planning for and arriving to the session was causing her noticeable stress and I don’t feel it should ever be that way for anyone! I work hard to create a calm and relaxing environment by thinking about all the elements of your shoot before you do and having as many solutions lined up as possible.
This session with her precious baby boy was honestly a turning point for me in my newborn work last year. I loved capturing him in his natural sleeping positions, feet curled up on his belly and his head leaning on his shoulders. It all felt so uninterrupted and I fell in love with the organic baby approach so much more as I worked through this session.
I probably sound like a broken record saying “This is one of my favorite sessions I’ve ever photographed!” but I wouldn’t be a growing artist if I couldn’t keep saying that - right? :) In all honesty, this family was so pleasant to work with. Baby Levi was an absolute gem, sleeping through his entire session! Mom and dad weren’t afraid to show him all the love and affection and they all made my job so easy to grab some great captures of their photogenic family. :)
This sweet boy! He is just perfection!! His perfect skin and babydoll face, paired with his calm and relaxed demeanor... I mean I try not to have favorites, but if I did, this guy would be in the running for SURE! He was an absolute gem during his Six Month Milestone Session at the studio - not that I expected any less.
