A few days after we brought our daughter Odette home from the hospital we had a newborn lifestyle photo session in our home. We wanted to capture those first couple weeks as well as capture how little she was and get photos of us as a family!
My daughter Odette Sabine was born June 15th at 4:51pm! Shortly after I did newborn portraits in my studio with lots of help from my husband. Being the parent and photographer was a different challenge and I was still very much in recovery mode. I planned the shoot out a lot before delivery so I had already planned the styling and props. Went with neutral backdrops and petite and sweet headbands!
I had the pleasure of doing photos with Calvin every month for the first year of his life. Finally it was time for his one year old portraits! We had cupcakes and balloons to celebrate. It was a great experience seeing Calvin so often for a whole year. Normally I do baby portraits every three months but seeing Calvin more frequently meant a wide variety of photos. Also it allowed us to get to know each other better and let me capture every stage of his first year!
For Calvin’s eleven month portraits we did a photoshoot with a little Valentine’s Day theme. Calvin wouldn’t sit still for this shoot so it took a lot of wrangling to get him in front of the camera but it made for lots of smiles and laughter!
