As an Olympia Newborn Photographer, it was so special to capture three generations in this shoot!
Get ready to meet this sweet newborn baby, Catarina! She was just a few days old when she came in for her shoot with Mom, Dad, and Grandma!
When baby Catarina’s mom and I were in the planning stages of putting this shoot together, she asked if we could get in a pose with Grandma, Mom, and Baby.
I absolutely love capturing generational photos. They carry such great importance within a family, so there was no doubt in my mind that we would make it happen!
You could feel the amount of love in the room when baby and family arrived for their shoot! The studio was filled with a relaxed but joyous calm that you can easily see in the photos below.
I know that baby Catarina felt the same because she easily transitioned from pose to pose so perfectly!
The best part about this session was that Miss Catarina was both asleep and awake. This hardly ever happens during a newborn photoshoot! Most babies are fast asleep the entire time.
But having baby both awake & asleep allowed us to capture her both ways. You’ll get to see her sweet eyes looking directly at the camera during the generational photo!
Also on mom’s pose ‘wish list’ were a few images invoked by fairytale. For those images, we used a beautifully ornate gilded ‘princess carriage’, perfectly sized for a pint-sized princess. The carriage was outfitted with a shaggy warm cozy blanket, which was perfect for napping. Our princess wore a pink tutu and a tiny crown for the occasion.
We also posed baby Catarina in a purple muslin swaddle and laid her atop a bed of woodland shaded flowers, in the shape of butterfly wings!
I saved the best for last – a swing photo! A baby swing covered in floral thicket and the softest of blankets fit for a sweet sleeping newborn. Scroll all the way to the end to see it!
