Miss Belle is also a little bitty thing weighing in at around 5 lbs at birth. I also photographed her birth but I am still working on proofing those images (halfway done Pam!). Her parents chose to have me proof her newborn photos first so they could get announcements out but I wanted to take a quick break and come share a few. LOVED this session. The color, the moments, everything. When I arrived I asked if they were friendly with their neighbors because it would be great to use the flowers in their yard as a backdrop. They thought I meant the beautiful, manicured yard two doors down…nope not me….I was drawn the house across the street that hadn’t been mowed since last year. HA! Yeah baby….
Uh, have I ever mentioned how much I adore grandpas? I LOVE cute little old grandpas. He was so cute with Belle, a confident hand and just in love with her….I love how they are checking each other out in the first one.
And as I was setting them up for a shot on the front porch, I was testing the light, he was getting ready, and both of them sneezed at the same time. Such a cute moment!
I can’t wait to see this one on canvas….
And then as I was poking around in the nursery looking for things to incorporate into their session, blankets, etc. I found THIS!! It pays to be nosey! HA! I thought I had died and gone to photographer heaven right then and there! I mean seriously?! An original bright red English Pram?! And bonus, it belonged to her Daddy when he was a baby overseas.
And last but not least, my fave family shots from this session….
Pam & Chris, congratulations on the birth of Belle, she is so beautiful! It has been a pleasure to get to know you and I look forward to photographing your family again in 6 months! Birth photos coming soon, promise!!
