It’s always such an honor to be asked to photograph special occasions in families’ lives. I recently had the pleasure of getting to know this beautiful family! Baby Ford was only 6 days new when he came to my studio for his newborn session. Doesn’t he have the cutest little face? Prior to the newborn session, Ford’s mom shared her ideas for the session via email. She wanted to incorporate her vintage Eames chair and the new monkey hat that she purchased for Ford for the session. I do have a large assortment of newborn accessories, blankets and other helpful items, which are always available for use during the sessions, but I love it when clients bring their own props, because it really makes the photos unique and personal. I absolutely adored what they brought with them and really enjoyed creating these images! Ford was sleeping when I put him on the chair, but as soon as I grabbed my camera, he opened his eyes! Since he didn’t move at all, I continued to capture him lying comfortably on the red chair, which turned out to be one of the family’s favorite images. They also used the image to create their custom designed birth announcements and I really like how they turned out! Thank you Ford for being such a great little model! I am looking forward to seeing you grow! Since the chair was so iconic and special to the family, it would be a great idea if your parents can photograph you on the same chair every month to see how much you grow in just one year. Wouldn’t that be so much fun?!?
