Recently I had two handsome little men come into the studio, Luca and his excited big brother Noah. Luca was just 10 days old at the time of his session and was the perfect little sleepy newborn model. Noah was a pocket sized ball of energy who certainly made us all work for all his gorgeous smiles! The results were totally worth it though!

We started the session with the sibling photos as with most little ‘big’ brothers and sisters, I have found that this is the best time to capture their attention and focus for a few short minutes. Newborn safety is always paramount for me during session, especially when we are dealing with such young subjects. It is often safest to have the little ones lying together on a rug or placed safely in a prop instead of being held by the ‘big’ little ones and that’s what we did on this occasion.

Next we moved on to the family portraits. I won’t lie – there were a few tears involved from little Noah but he eventually turned on the charm flashing his gorgeous smile for us!

After the family photographs were out of the way and everyone could relax, it was time for me to start focusing on baby Luca and his newborn photos. Isn’t his little smirk just the best!

We chose to continue on with the rustic wooden theme from the sibling photos, placing Luca in a wooden bowl with some jute underneath to add a bit of texture to the image.

We then introduced some navy and grey colour tones which worked perfectly with this little mans gorgeous skin tones!

After we had used a variety of props we moved onto my posing bag where we were able to capture some gorgeous naked images of Luca on a grey backdrop. I just love this side pose image! He just looks so content with those hands and his 10 little toes all together!
