I love incorporating personal items in photo sessions, making each family portrait and story as unique as they are. Generally, my approach is “less is more” in order to have the focus on the baby and the family. The less distractions there are, the more focus is placed on the family.
However, I believe that personal or sentimental items are an exception as they are part of each family’s story. Therefore, I make sure to naturally incorporate them into the family portraits. In this particular newborn session, we incorporated the baby girl’s wooden crib. The grandfather handcrafted this beautiful crib that she sleeps in. The intricate details reflect how much love and care went into crafting it. It was important to the family that it play a special part in the images I created. Personal or sentimental items can be a variety of things, such as an heirloom item passed from one generation to the next, something handmade, s special toy, a blanket, etc. Each family is unique and so are the items that are sentimental to them.
And I am so glad we got to capture the baby being awake and asleep at 3 weeks of age so you could see all her facial expressions. I love how awake she was in her mom’s arms and how soundly she slept in her handmade wooden crib. Here is a guide to learn more about when is the best time to do newborn portraits.
