Around a year ago, I began looking for newborn models in preparation of a class I would be taking. (My review of that class is here). Luckily for me, one of my very good friends happened to be pregnant, and she agreed to not only let me do a maternity session for her, but also a newborn session after her baby arrived. I can’t believe her little Lloyd is one!
We won’t rush it – he won’t be one for a few more weeks. However, we wanted to do the session early to have them in time for his birthday party!
First we took some lifestyle photos. I always take any opportunity I can to work in some lifestyle when I can. I love capturing life as it is. There is so much beauty to be found in the everyday moments we take for granted. We then switched to more of a “posed” style, though one-year-olds cant really be posed! Next we did some cake smashing. Lloyd was far more interested in painting with his icing than eating his cake. Perhaps he will be an artist one day, as others in his family are! Finally, we finished with a bath, as every cake smash requires one of those!
