Darling Newborn Portrait Session – Hamilton, NZ
Precious little Freya arrived recently, and it was my privilege to visit her parents and photograph her Baby Love Newborn session. Freya is lucky to be a little sister, to her very happy older brother Kynan and sister Ashlyn. Weighing in at 7lbs I couldn’t stop thinking how dainty she is, such a darling! Her super hero Mum, Denise fed her up well, before we wrapped Freya and attempted to settle her a top my red and white check basket. I had been saving this basket up just for this purpose. Little Freya, even though completely full decided that she was in charge, and things were far too interesting around the room. So while we didn’t get any sleepy shots of her this day – I totally love how alert she is for her portraits. It was really neat to have this little soul so very present.
The Big Announcement!
Freya’s parents Denise and David wanted to send out birth announcement cards to their friends and family. For this they wanted to use a really nice photo of their wee girl. I was really thrilled to receive one myself (looks so good, Denise did a great job!) – they are such a cool way to share the joy of a new baby in the family. Perfect mementos! Included in the Baby Love Newborn package are digital files, prints and a gorgeous framed gift print. This means there is plenty to share and enjoy with excited loved ones.
A bold beginning…
Newborn photos typically tend to have baby coloured shades: pastels and softer tones etc. Because we had this gorgeous heart basket, I though it would be fun to just roll with it, and make use of the gorgeous bold red. Freya really looked lovely in red, and I had the prefect wee crochet flower to clip in her hair. Running out the door at home – I quickly hot glued a pearl in the middle of the flower, for that finishing touch. Freya rocked it, and looked a total darling.
Sibling adoration – Newborn love-in…
While older brother Kynan was at school during this darling newborn portrait session, big sister Ashlyn (three years old) was home and SUPER keen to assist me. Decked out in her gorgeous Queen Elsa dress, she was more than happy to jump in for a few photos and cuddle her new baby. Such precious moments – we all know how fast it goes by :-)…
Congratulations again Denise, David, Kynan and Ashlyn xo
