I loved this session with little Soren at 12 days old! As a popular Plano newborn photographer, I love collaborating with clients about their vision for their session. Soren is his mama’s rainbow baby, which means that he was her blessing born after a previous loss of a baby. I loved that his mama brought her creativity to this shoot and wore this amazing rainbow gown, designed by Chicaboo to celebrate the miracle of his life!
He was such a sweetheart and slept so well during his session! I love the images we captured of him and his mama. She was so relaxed and you could feel her peace and connection with him. Her gown was so long that we had to bunch it up around the bottom, which created this beautiful array of rainbow colors. After the mama and baby portraits, Soren’s mommy had the idea to lay the dress down and shape it into a heart and lay Soren in the center! The original heart we shaped was a bit uneven, but retouching in Photoshop made it perfect and turned it into an amazing image of Soren surrounded by a rainbow heart!
Another outfit we had Soren wear was this fuzzy bear outfit and bonnet made by Rita Wilder, who is such a talented knitter and creator of newborn and baby props and outfits. This outfit is so soft and comfortable, babies just seem to go into a deep sleep because they are so warm and snuggly! I have had many requests to use this outfit with other newborn sessions, because of how sweet it is, so it is getting a lot of good use!
Soren loved to be wrapped, so this potato sack pose was a breeze! Wrapping babies is an art in itself! It took me a long time to get it right but I am pretty good at it now! See a video right here of me actually wrapping Soren during his newborn photo session! It is sped up so you can catch the action quickly!
I love creative sessions like this!
If you are pregnant and thinking about planning a newborn photo session with your precious baby when he or she arrives, please contact me to discuss your vision, thoughts and ideas and let’s make it happen! I love to customize my sessions to your interests and style! The best time to plan your newborn session is while you are still pregnant.
And, if you choose to book your newborn photo session with me in advance, while you are still pregnant, I would love to gift you a complimentary maternity mini session! This means you can come to my studio and wear one of my designer maternity gowns and we will take some gorgeous images of you that you can use as a pregnancy or gender announcement, or you can include them in the photo album that we will design for your new little one when they arrive! My schedule fills up quickly, so booking in advance is advised to ensure availability.
