As a Seattle Newborn Photographer, it’s always so amazing to see moms who visited me for their maternity session, return with their newborns! They always have that new mom glow going on and it’s so fun to finally meet the baby. For this session, Mom and Dad, and baby make three. So they all came in together to capture this special moment.
A bumble bee, an elephant’s trunk, and an overjoyed mom and dad snuggling their sweet baby! This newborn photoshoot has so many beautiful elements to it, I can’t wait to share them all with you!
I always encourage my families to come into the studio together. Whether it’s siblings, parents, or grandparents. I know what a big moment it is for a family to welcome a new baby and how special it is to have everyone join in on capturing the occasion!
For this session, we focused on a few classic portraits of baby with Dad, then Mom, then with everyone together as one big happy family. After that, it was baby’s time to shine in front of the camera all by himself! Mom selected some really fun themes for baby’s solo shots.
The first is an imagination photo of baby hanging out on a friendly elephant’s trunk! He’s curled up tightly against the elephant’s trunk, taking a nap, while the elephant carries him safely across the savanna. The second setup is baby dressed up like the sweetest little bumble bee. He is tenderly snoozing away after a long day tending to the honeycombs. Scroll through the photos in the blog below to see more!
