We recently heard from one of our wedding clients that she was due to have a baby soon. We shot their wedding a few months back in downtown Minneapolis and they were just a joy to work with. We had actually shot Lee’s sister’s wedding a few years ago, so we’ve worked with the family quite a bit. We love when our clients get back to us after their weddings for follow up photo sessions, so this was a real treat.
We conducted newborn photos of Holden in their home. Shooting photos in homes for newborns is preferred due to a couple of reasons. Firstly, it’s more convenient. If the baby gets hungry, everything is readily available. Additionally, the baby feels comfortable in their own environment, making it easier to soothe them if they become upset. Secondly, it provides a unique setting that captures the essence of the baby’s age and holds more memories.
The session included a variety of shots, such as capturing the little details like toes, ears, and eyes, prop photos featuring Lee and Kyle’s wedding rings, and family photos. It was an enjoyable experience, and we look forward to doing more in the future.
The shoot had two distinct parts, making it even more fun. The first part took place in the nursery, where we captured photos of Holden, Lee and Kyle holding him, and shots of the nursery itself. The second part involved Holden’s brother coming home from school, joining the photoshoot for sibling shots and full family photos. We had previously met his brother at Lee and Kyle’s wedding, so it was delightful to see him again. He proudly showed us the digital fridge, featuring some digital photos from the wedding, which was absolutely adorable.
