Maggi was an absolute dream to photograph and we had acually been planning for her session for some time so I am so glad that everything worked out so very well for this Durham, NC Newborn session. I traveled to the families home for this session. I do offer that as a service with the understanding that I am not coming with out a good portion of the studio in tow with me – so I will need lots of room and will make myself at home! There I was, right in the middle of the family room – doing Maggi’s newborn session and she was doing so very well. She slept through almost the entire thing and only needed to eat a couple of times. She posed well and actually some of my favorites were at the very beginning of the session – and they weren’t even set up to be that way.
I typically start each session with the images of the parents and older siblings – that is if we are going to be doing any; because I make it really hot in the area that the newborn is in for the session and I want the parents to not be sweaty as well as typically older siblings do better with the session if I attack their part of the session head on and first – then they can go about their business while I proceed with the session without them. I wrapped Maggi up for her portraits with her parents and her big brother and while big bro didn’t really cooperate, I loved how content and happy she looked all wrapped up like a burito. So, I took some pictures of her just like that – and my intention was to just take them with her wrapped like that while her parents were holding her.
She is such a content and happy baby and let’s hope she stays like that for her family;) You never know!
~Enjoy and hugs to this precious family! I hope to see you more as Maggi grows and grows!~
