When I started unloading gear from my car, this little girl came bounding out the front door of her home, eager and full of energy to say hello to this “picture lady” who had just arrived. What a cutie! I captured a few photos of just her and Dad as we waited for Mom and baby to be ready to join in the family photos.
Arriving into a family’s home and taking photos in their surroundings, along with the arrival of a new baby is always an experience full of excitement and unknown. I love the simplicity of baby shots being focused on the baby, not too many props, not too much set up, and keeping it real and authentic. I love the interactions that happen, some orchestrated and some very much unplanned (or some maybe even bribed with toy cameras and candy!) The natural moments seem to come through with the setting of home as a familiar studio.
Baby Andrew was a delight to photograph – with his handsome good looks, soft baby skin, mounds of dark hair and curious and sweet eyes seeking out the world around him. I’m sure his exuberant older sister will no doubt be showing him the ropes in no time!
Thanks for having me in your home Jana & Jared ~ Congratulations!
