Bringing a new baby home is such a special time in a couple’s life. As you fall in love with your new baby, there are little moments and little features that you try to commit to memory. At the same time, you are so tired and it’s so easy to forget everything. I actually felt like the first few months went by in a blur when I was a new mom with my first baby.
This is why I love newborn photography. I love being able to capture the beauty of a new baby, to record the way the new parents adore him or her. I know they will have these special images to help them remember all the little things that their hearts love, even if their minds fail to take it all in.
Baby Titan’s session was no exception. Titan was just 5 days old on the day that I photographed him. I was so glad that his parents invited me over when he was still under 10 days old, which is the best time to have a newborn photo session. It was so lovely to spend some time with him and his parents, I really felt the love in their home.
I have so many favorites from this session, and I am really excited to share them all with you:
I love to photograph new babies in a simple style where the focus of each image is the baby and not the props. This is achieved with purposeful yet natural posing, soft fabric colors that compliment the baby and interesting textures. Titan’s little hands are too beautiful to keep under the swaddle.
I also loved his full head of hair, such a beautiful color.
I have to confess that I yawn every time I see this image. But I really love baby yawns, so adorable!
His little back wrinkles- need I say more?
I was so excited to use one of beautiful knit diaper covers that I purchased on my last trip to Portugal. It complimented Titan’s skin color so well!
And I have to post again my favorite image of Titan’s session, this time in black and white.
‘A’ and ‘D’, congrats again on your gorgeous new little one! I am so happy for you both!
