I met the ‘B Family’ while 2nd shooting Mark and Helen’s wedding… They were also really good friends of Ryan (who is my good friend!)
At the wedding I mentioned how I’d love to do some Maternity and new Baby Photography for them… and about a month later I met with them on a sunny Saturday morning in June.. and shot some amazing maternity portraits…
Baby H arrived on June 29th… and I got to meet him when he was just 5 days old! (so sweet, still so tiny small)… I was in the middle of packing up my apartment, but am so glad I made the time to go over and meet Baby H and take some photos of him, his big bro and Mom! Big Bro G… wasn’t sure what to think of his new little bro! He’s 17months old… and still trying to sort out what’s going on… for most of the shoot he’s was pretty serious… but still 100% adorable! These looks might have been about him sitting in the basket..that I put on the kitchen table.. perhaps he just thought I was a bit ‘crazy’!?Two of my favourite shots of the shoot.. that were taken in the last 5mins… sometimes you save the best for the last! So how does one take a ‘sibling’ shot with a 17month old and a 5 day old?… well you need to make sure that the infant is supported and that the toddler doesn’t run away! My solution.. was have the 17month old sit in the basket…then put a blanket on his knees (so he can’t get out), then put another blanket on top.. and finally lay down the 5day old! And I made sure someone else could scoop the infant if things got ugly!
Will all that effort, I think the photos turned out well! Hands….small, medium and large!!!
Little toes… and small infants that don’t really want to be naked, but instead all bundled up… Thanks so much ‘B Family’…it was amazing to meet you! Thanks for letting me photograph your family. I hope someday in the future I can shoot them again! Hope you are getting the rest you need… and are settling into parenting of 2! Keep in touch!! 🙂 Sarah
