It was such a joy to welcome him to the world in my studio during his newborn session.
Mom and I had previously met in one of my Photo 101 Classes. She had assisted me on a philanthropy project taking images of the pets needing forever homes for A Pet’s Wish.
When she contacted me to get on the calendar for Nicholas’ newborn session, I was so excited to work with her again.
Dad is a pilot, and when you have a boy, well, it’s a given that you will have airplanes incorporated in some fashion. His room theme is vintage airplanes and travel, so we added those elements to the set. Mom had purchased this adorable teddy bear, and it was the perfect fit to completing the vintage pilot dreaming of flight. Dad also donned his flight suit and Nicholas had a seat in his helmet. Seriously, one of my favorite images that I love including in the sessions!
His amazing little nugget of hair was quite the treat, and there was no way we would keep it covered with a hat the whole time.
I often encourage parents to include something personal of theirs into the sessions, such as wedding bands. Sometimes mom’s rings aren’t fitting her comfortably yet and letting baby hold them is a great way to include them without forcing the rings back on. Little did we know that Nicholas would love them so much he would smile. Newborn smiles are the best, and so unpredictable. Very happy that I was able to capture that for mom and dad.
Congratulations to this new family of three!!
