Hannah came in recently for her family newborn session and she brought her dog (and parents) with her!
It is so much fun photographing the whole family, pets included.
You never know how posing with pets will go so in most cases images are done as composites. That means an image is taken with the baby and no dog, an image is taken with the dog- no baby, and the two are combined in post production. In this instance, there is a spotter beside the baby removed in post production as the dog was older, quite calm and had excellent training. Posing a newborn safely is always the paramount concern, whether in a prop, with parents or a pet.
As you probably know, babies are on their own schedule for everything- including sleep. Hannah’s mum did mention wanting some awake photos and luckily Hannah agreed. Right before she nodded off to sleep she gave us these cute awake pictures.
It isn’t very often a baby is this alert for pictures, combine that with these big, beautiful eyes and it makes for a really adorable gallery!
Once she was asleep we did some prop shots to show how teeny tiny she is. Both a vintage wire basket and a vintage dough bowl were used. By the time Hannah turns 1 she won’t be able to lay down in either of these. Both of these props could be used again, in a seated position, at a first birthday/sitter session to make a wall art that clearly dipicts how much a baby has grown in their first year.
Our Bump-To-Baby package is perfect for documenting your baby’s first year were careful planning of props and colours can be used to make timeless wall art.
The family portion of a session is quickly becoming a favourite. Finding ways to really showcase a newborn’s tininess in the arms of parents is the best.
We are booking into September 2022 with just a few spots left each month. Summer is filling quickly up quickly with outdoor family/beach sessions.
