Now that the design is finished, I wanted to share this family portrait album with you! Typically I will also design a full color cover for portrait albums, which looks really gorgeous on display. This slideshow only highlights the album pages, so here is a peek at the cover design. Keep in mind, the left side of this image is the back cover, and the front cover is on the right side.
It is always wonderful when I can be a part of welcoming a new family member. Sometimes my clients bring in tiny newborns, and sometimes life is so crazy that I get to meet the babies when they are a couple months old. Either way, I love creating these family portraits because the portraits are a celebration of change and growth — family growth! Here are some portraits from a recent family session. We created a whole range of portraits, including both family groupings and individual newborn-esque portraits. I love sessions like this!
Big brother Nate and big sister Tessa helped me to create some adorable portraits of their new little sister, Mia! We had lots of fun, and the kids were really cooperative. After creating a few portraits of all the kids together, it was time for Mia to hog the spotlight so we did some portraits of just baby girl by herself. I love how these all turned out; it is always great to include family in newborn sessions.
I recently got to photograph the most adorable newborn baby and his three older brothers. We did this session at their home.
Babywearing mamas are the best :). It is always great to see how calm and relaxed their little ones are because they are all nice and snuggled up. This one of the whole family is to-die-for.
Baby G. and her parents came to the studio for a newborn portrait session. I love including family in these portraits… it always helps to give a sense of size. Newborns don’t seem all that tiny, until you’ve been around comparably giant toddlers! Here are a few highlights from Baby G’s newborn portrait session.
Portraits that include a new family member are always extra adorable! Here are a few images from baby Z’s newborn session. I love the one with all three brothers…but my absolute favorite is the one of baby Z. in his daddy’s arms. Enjoy!
Here are portraits from Baby M’s newborn session. I absolutely LOVE the one of her big brother holding her; he looks so proud to be an older sibling!
Interestingly enough, we spent most of the session trying to get Baby M to fall asleep so that we could create the tour de force — that adorable artistic portrait of her sleeping on the settee.
I hope the family enjoyed their holiday gifts 🙂 — portraits always make wonderful presents, don’t you think?
Baby A is growing so quickly! It seems like just the other day that we were doing her newborn portraits… and now she’s already over half a year old! Time really flies. A isn’t crawling yet, er, at least not when we did the portrait session… but as you can see, she definitely is getting closer. Sitting up, pushing up, and having great head control!
Baby M. came to the studio for her newborn portrait session… and here are two of my favorites! We also did some portraits of the whole family, but you’ll have to wait to see those. 🙂
Sooooo adorable, I just love it when we can create artsy portraits of sleeping newborns!!!
And of course being held in Daddy’s hands….
Baby A. and her parents came in this summer for her newborn portraits! She was such a good baby; aside from not wanting to fall asleep, we had no trouble creating these lovely portraits of the happy new family. This one (below) will look especially nice as a wall portrait on display in their home… believe it or not, the portrait looks even better in black and white!
It will be fun to see how much she grows in the coming months 🙂 …they grow all too quickly, don’t they? Here are some other images from A’s newborn session (I designed a custom album with many of these portraits, which I’m sure the whole family will enjoy!).
Well, the little one is growing quickly. It seems like only yesterday that we were doing his newborn portraits… These portraits I created needed to be shared before he “outgrows” them too! Read More
Baby G finally arrived… and we finally got her into the studio for her newborn portraits. Since she was a couple weeks old already, Baby G was pretty active! We did manage to lure her halfway to sleeping… and ended up with some wonderful portraits of her awake and asleep. I absolutely *love* this portrait of her in the basket… what a cute smile on baby!
Baby Peanut came to the studio a couple days after she was born… boy was she tiny! Her parents participated in the session too, and we created some adorable family portraits for them to enjoy. Peanut was a joy to have in the studio — she mostly slept, and aside from a feeding break, things were pretty uneventful! Since we did these portraits, Peanut has gained about a third of her original body weight… and is quickly catching up to those “standards” that the doctors love use when measuring kids and babies.
