If you are a facebook fan, then you know how excited I am over this session. Of course, I love all my sessions, especially my itty bitty newborns, but I get giddy over trying something totally new.
This mom and dad had the creative idea of getting some shots of their new baby boy on the pool table downstairs. We put our heads together, …mom dug up a “pool ball” fleece scarf that her neice made her, dad got the balls all qued up (right?), and I got to work on my end of the best angle and best light. Viola! I love it. It is such a cool experience being able to create something that is special just to the client (ie–custom photography!).
I got that “giddy” feeling double today. Baby B’s room was just adorable…and more importantly so special and meaningful. One of his grandmothers painted a big brown tree in his room on one wall. For the leaves of the tree, she actually had the guests at the baby shower write messages on these paper leaves, and then placed them on the tree in his room. It was so beautiful! (check it out in the collage below the pool table shot)
B is totally cute and just precious. He was sleepy and content for the entire session (after all, his room was a sauna!), and it was fun chatting with mom and dad while we made these special photographic memories! Thanks again, it was great meeting you…and hi “Uncle Steve!”
If you made it this far, please show some blog love and commnent on this post. 15 comments gets B and his family a free 5×7 print–I love when that happens! THANKS! 🙂
