This is the time of year where we know what everyone was doing during the winter! I’ve had so many beautiful babies in my studio over the last few month but Baby C takes the cake for being the calmest and sleepiest baby yet! She was probably only awake for 20% of our shoot & slept through being wrapped, unwrapped, posed (unposed), & lots of itchy head bands!
This baby was also extra special to me because her mother was one of my lovely models! I’ve worked with Luisa on mulitlpe occasions, mostly though in my advertisements for the amazing Nikolette Bags (which I use mine ALL the time). We tried our hardest to do a maternity session but Baby C came before that happened, so a newborn shoot was defiantly in order! I spent more time than I would like to admit picking out fabric and making head bands for her session.
Despite the miserable heat I somehow managed to convenience Mama L & Papa R to come outside (In increments) to do photos during the golden hour. The two were more than willing despite the harsh conditions to spend any given moment with their sweet little baby. Luisa was simply stunning throughout our session and despite being a new mommy somehow managed to be a fashionista and jump right back into model mode! Rey also brought his A game and looked so handsome for all his photos! Everything he did came so naturally and he was just so genuinely in love with both his ladies that it was hard to stop taking photos!
Our session was cut short due to the heat & we immediately rescheduled for the following day (or something like that), which made me so incredibly excited to get to work with this couple in a new environment! I was even more excited we’d be able to do a whole new wardrobe & that would give me the opportunity to share that many more photos! Baby C was once again on her best behavior but this time she was wide awake for our session!
Isn’t this chick a knock out?!?!?!
Though I spend the majority of my sessions directing people & making sure they feel comfortable in front of the camera it’s always such a relief to have a couple that is so comfortable with one another you can hardly tell that they might have felt awkward or uneasy about the process. Before our session I went to Luisa & Rey’s church with them during service to do photos of Baby C’s announcement & I instantly fell in love with this couple. You could tell just how much they loved each other by sitting next to them for an hour. No matter how tired they might have been or how hot it was they still somehow found a way to unspokenly say I love you. I can’t wait to update my portfolio with this adorable family & to see this amazing couple & little lady again!!!
