Being a Minneapolis Newborn Photographer, I have maybe the best job ever. Capturing photos for families fulfills me. Yes, it’s fun to have these photos now to share with your friends and family. But the thought of you looking at these images 20 years from now, your children sharing their newborn/child/family photos with their children, THAT is what drives me. It’s not a responsibility I take lightly. Love, adore, cherish… all things I want to feel about the images from your session. Warm fuzzies required, always.
Here is a family you might recognize! We spent a gorgeous evening together last month capturing Maternity and Family photos. Little miss Luana made her arrival a couple weeks ago, and I finally got to meet her! First, let’s just talk about that hair! You all know I LOVE me some baby hair! And eyelashes for daaaaays!!!! She’s absolutely gorgeous. I can definitely see a resemblance to her big sister Nadia. These girls are going to be heartbreakers one day 🙂
I used to be intimidated at the thought of doing sibling photos during a session. Toddlers and young children can be very difficult to work. Asking a little tike to stay in a posed position for a couple minutes is tough. It’s why I only do sessions for children older than 12 months outside. letting them run around is soooo much easier and natural! I would just assume that sibling photos during a newborn session would more than likely go very wrong. And they have in the past, but, I’ve figured a few things out. Yes, I’ve got some tricks up my sleeve now. Sibling photos, not so scary for this photog anymore. And it’s a good thing too because these end up being favorite photos from each newborn session that I capture them at. I know I melt everytime I look at the photo I took of Azria holding Renly as a newborn.
I hope you enjoy these photos! And I have to mention the gorgeous piece of handmade felt in the photo of Nadia & Luana. It’s made by Bobo Filc, go visit her website if your a photog looking for a fun new prop!
