It means a lot to me when clients choose me to photograph their family and newborn babies and nothing makes me smile more than the love that radiates from a happy family. Sweet Riley and her loving parents came to my studio when she was only 10 days new. We started off with some family + newborn portraits. I understand that taking photos is probably the last thing that the mom wanted to do after just delivering her baby! But at the same time, this is an exciting time in her life as she welcomes her precious new baby to her family and I wanted to capture all of that… I felt very privileged to be a part of this experience.
Photographing the connection between parents and their babies is one of my favorites. And I am a big fan of skin-on-skin portraits (or skin-to-skin portraits) with the parents holding their baby against them. They’re so simple, natural + timeless! I absolutely love these sweet photos of baby Riley and her family. I was so happy to capture their intimate interactions, natural smiles, and beautiful expressions through my camera.
(BTW, I wrote about the “importance of family portraits taken at the newborn session” here)
Here are some of my favorite portraits of beautiful Riley and her lovely family!
