I love Google (not what you were expecting, eh?). Why? Because it’s finally starting to work for HGP, and I’m getting fantastic clients like Angel and Kerrick, and their newborn, Wesley. Mom and Dad walked in, handed me baby, and said “do my thing”. Their only previous discussed request was to incorporate a suitcase since his nursery is travel themed. I just acquired my mom’s travel set from the 70’s that fit their theme perfectly. Since their house is decorated mostly primary colors, the vivid red was embraced as perfect.
Check out the gallery with more of Wesley’s images (starting at second row, second image).
When planning for newborn sessions, I always ask if there are any special requests, or images the parents would like to see. Their only request was the suitcase picture. However, once there they shared the general color scheme, I planned the rest of the shoot accordingly. Knowing that the house is painted in primary colors, I chose to do a set that was very neutral, so when the images were hung, they would stand out extremely well against their wall colors.
Please know I will always try to accommodate requests, as long as they are safe poses. I want these images to be cherished and PRINTED. My hope is they grace your walls for years to come, so please, always bring your ideas to me and I will do my best with what I have!
Wesley super struggled the whole session. He barely opened his eyes once. It was so warm and cozy that even eating a full meal wasn’t too appealing. With that said, he slept SO WELL. I was able to do an entire extra set because he was so sleepy. We wrapped the session with one of my new fabric backdrops that photographs so pretty!
