Parent photos are such a special addition to newborn sessions. Not only do they give some great photos of the brand new (and/or expanded family), but they also give you a great scale for seeing just how tiny this new baby really is.
And although a lot of parents take the first couple weeks off from work, it is also pretty common that one parent (more often than not, Dad) has just started going back to work just as we schedule the session. And it’s for this reason that I tend to do parent photos first thing. That way, if someone needs to head back to work, they can easily do that without missing out on the family photo.
This is exactly what happened for Mackenzie’s session as Dad was able to leave and head back to work as he had really only just started back the previous day.

And I am in even more disbelief of how well the session went. But what I have absolutely no questions about whatsoever is how insanely adorable these identical twin girls are! Zoey and Skye were such troopers during their session, and I am so grateful to have been able to capture these precious photos of them for their amazing parents.

Despite the smile on her face, this adorable little girl really wasn’t as into her session as it may seem in this photo. Little Piper really wasn’t a fan of being unwrapped but thanks to a nice cozy swaddle we still got some really great images from the day!
Every little baby has their own personality and they each come with a different, yet equally adorable, set of features that I love capturing during their session. For Little Easton, I instantly fell head over heels in love with his hair! It just reminded me of that of an old man, sitting on his porch watching the kids playing in the street. That’s probably a weird thing to be thinking, but that is of what it reminded me. Continue reading →
