As an Olympia Newborn Photographer, I love getting to see mamas I work with during their maternity sessions, come in with their newborns! It’s such a beautiful full-circle moment. From celebrating mom’s moment of carrying her baby in the womb to having her baby in her arms. The best part? Dad came in for this session as well!
Bringing in Dad, siblings, or even grandparents (gotta love those multi-generational photos!) is always highly encouraged for my newborn sessions. Of course, I focus on plenty of photos of the baby all by themself. But it’s amazing to take this moment as a way for the entire family to welcome baby.
For this particular session, mom had just been in my studio a few weeks prior for her maternity session. She got to dress up in her choice of gowns from my client closet and feel like an absolute queen. The tiara I have on hand kind of helped in that department! So when she and Dad brought their sweet boy in for his newborn session, I was so ready to meet him!
I was beyond delighted when I laid eyes on this adorable little baby. He had a full head of hair, the sweetest little round cheeks, and my favorite, those tiny gumdrop toes! Between photos with mom, photos with dad, and photos on his own, he slept for the entire session like a little champ!
