Newborn Session: Baby Gavin at 3 weeks Old
This was my first opportunity to use my home studio to photograph a portrait session, and I'm very happy with the results! Meet baby Gavin, he's simply an adorable newborn to the proud new parents of Ian and Justine :) We spent close to 3 hours for this photoshoot, mainly because baby Gavin needed to be soothed and comforted so we could take his pictures while he was asleep. It usually takes more time to photograph baby sessions because it's important to work around the baby's schedule, they are very unpredictable!
Here are a few TIPS: make sure your baby is well fed prior to the photoshoot, bring extra formula if needed, also bring diapers, wipes, and a change of clothing for YOURSELF! Ian and Justine were happily peed on, regurgitated on, and best of all---pooed on! The mustard looking smear on Ian's forearm is an example of newborn baby poop! LOL!
Here are some of my favorites below, enjoy!
I'm not a huge fan of selective coloring, but this was Ian's and Justine's request! Too bad we didn't have a blue satin ribbon instead!
