As a Lonsdale newborn photographer I love when clients book prior to their delivery! Not only can I guarantee my availability for their session but it also gives me more time to get to know them and prepare for them.
Dana booked prior to the arrival of baby Rhyan so I knew that she would be coming in soon. Dana serves in the US Army and I was so excited that she would be bringing in her fatigues to do a special set up with her daughter. What a special image for their family!
Rhyan was one of the best behaved babies I have ever had in my Lonsdale newborn photography studio. Not only did she keep it clean (which doesn't happen in newborn photography) but she also didn't stop to eat! Most newborns, especially breastfed newborns stop to nurse a minimum of one time during their session, sometimes more! Not Rhyan, she was a little angel and slept perfectly while I worked on documenting how perfectly tiny and sweet she is!
Prior to her session I wanted to add some new earthy headbands to my collection for her to use and got crafty. Often photographers try to create some of their own props as it can save money and also you can create props that match your set ups more closely. As a Lonsdale Newborn Photographer I often make props to accompany some of the props I have gotten from my favorite vendors.
This beautiful green headband is one of the most fun bands I have made in some time! I love how sweet and simple it looks on Rhyan!
I also made Rhyan's lace wrap in this perfect tummy time pose and also her white bow headband in the next image.
Since I knew that Rhyan was coming in soon and knew the colors that appealed to her mom and dad I knew exactly how to style her session so that her images would look great in their home and look beautiful printed together.
I truly enjoyed getting to know Rhyan and her family throughout their photography session and gallery premiere appointment. They were so kind to me and even bought me a gift. It was the most thoughtful gift I had gotten in a long time and meant so much.
Thank you so much for including me in this special time in your lives. I am so blessed to be able to spend all this time with beautiful babies and their families and couldn't be happier. Congratulations on your baby girl and thank you for the honor of photographing her.
