Oh the joys of being a Kelowna Newborn Photographer…
Mainly… snuggling babies. But also, meeting their siblings and seeing the love they have for their new baby. These two sweeties LOVED snuggling their little brother. At first, they were hesitant but once they got used to it, they did not want to put him down. It was ridiculously adorable!
I might be biased, having two August babies of my own, BUT…. August / early September are the best times to have a baby. In all seriousness, the weather is getting cooler and snuggling a newborn is the best feeling!
The best thing about being a Kelowna Newborn Photographer? Just take a little look at this sweet baby boy and you’ll understand. Oh, and his smell. I wish you could all smell that newborn baby smell through the computer screen because IT. IS. GLORIOUS.
I made my way over to this beautiful family’s home for their in-home newborn session. They were unable to get newborn portraits done immediately after their little man was born, so believe it or not, he was almost a month old when this session took place. You would never know it because he was still less than 8lbs and slept like a dream!
To be completely honest, I could’ve photographed this little guy all day long!
While we are on the topic, let’s talk about in-home newborn photography sessions…. if you’re expecting and are on the fence about having an in-studio or in-home session, here are some reasons why your home might make the perfect location:
You don’t have to leave your home.
You are the most comfortable and stress-free in your own home. Leaving the house with a newborn can be a lot of work and can feel very stressful.
You still have time to get ready if I arrive and you aren’t quite camera-ready.
No packing a diaper bag.
Feeding and changing the baby in the comfort of your own home.
No car rides with a newborn (and if your newborn is like 2 of my 3 newborns, this is the best reason to have an in-home newborn photography session).
You can’t forget anything that you may have wanted to use for the portrait session.
You can have your baby’s nursery documented.
The images you choose to display in your home will already match your decor!
If you still need some convincing… just take a look at these images!
Oliver is a the sweetest gentleman in all the land. He decided that he would give Kristina a surprise maternity session after she decided not to have one because Oliver doesn’t love having his photo taken. Both wonderful, selfless people trying to make the other happy.
In the end, it all worked out! Kristina has some beautiful maternity photos and Oliver did an amazing job in front of the camera. My instructions were – be as cozy and affectionate as you can possibly be, and they delivered!
It’s always fun for me to meet new couples because I get to see them from a fresh perspective. Kristina’s radiant, beautiful smile, and gentle, caring demeanour. Oliver’s amazing hair, gentlemanly ways, and oabundant adoration for Kristina. It’s no doubt their baby is going to be the sweetest, most loved little thing!
I can’t say how many warm and fuzzies I feel when a previous client comes back to document another milestone. Krista, Ivan and I met when they were expecting their first little one, Sloan, whose adorableness you can see below. The last time I saw her, she was a week old!!
She likes dirt, rocks, getting white dresses dirty, smiling, saying “awww done!”, being independent, giving kisses and also, giving more hugs and kisses. She’s SUCH a sweetie and she’s going to make an amazing big sister to a little brother in a few short weeks!
Congratulations Krista and Ivan! I can’t wait to meet baby Dorie!
You know those women who just glow when they are pregnant? The ones who are beautiful with their perfect bellies and who just ooze pregnancy perfection. Meet Caity. That woman is her. Her fiance, Jayden is equally as wonderful. A gentleman who takes good care of his girl, showering her with affection. These two are expecting a sweet little girl nearly any time now – Caity’s blush dress, a perfect fit for the session.
There’s a lot going on in the lives of these two and it’s only the beginning!
You’ll see their faces grace the pages of my blog again in July – they’re getting married!
