Sweet, sweet Charlotte was born at the end of April, and for her 8th day I came to visit for a photo session at her house. She was just the sweetest, tiniest little thing! Ok, my own son was 8lb 10oz at birth, and Charlotte was just over 7lb when she was born, and had lost weight by the time I saw her – so for me, she was really small! I am so glad that Emily & Michael let me have a chance to come and play with her! I like to do newborn sessions at the baby’s home so that the parents don’t need to go out for the shoot, we can use things they have in their home as props to personalize the session, and we minimize the baby’s exposure to getting sick. Considering the week of our session was also the week that Sw*ne Flu had taken over the media airwaves of Houston and the nation, a home visit was especially wise!
You might recognize Charlotte’s Mom, Emily, from our boudoir session last fall, when she was 6 weeks pregnant and wanted to capture her pre-baby figure, or our maternity session earlier this year!
I had a really hard time narrowing down my favorites from this session, as it has been awhile since I had a newborn in front of my camera. They really are so much fun to photograph! All those folds, wrinkles, baby soft skin – what a joy! I will gladly photograph a newborn any day of the week!
Emily had those wings from a session she had done some time back for a family member of her own – aren’t they just the cutest thing?
