Ottawa Lifestyle Newborn Photos
Ottawa and Gatineau Newborn Photographers
Last week I had the pleasure to photograph some Ottawa lifestyle newborn photos of a beautiful little baby girl. I had photographed her mom and dad’s spring maternity photo session in May. I arrived at their home to set up only to find out that mamma had gone shopping the day before for some photo props and cute little outfits for the baby to wear. Grandma was also there and told me that her daughter had a great eye for details. I could totally see it with the things that she bought for the shoot as well as the outfits she picked out for their maternity shoot. Man, I need more clients like her!
I shot some outdoor photos of them as well as with grandma. Then we shot photos of baby by herself. I’m not gonna lie, at 9 days old this little girl was a fighter. She didn’t want to sleep. Even when I swaddled her good and tight, she still managed to get her arms free. She fought through most of the photo shoot–even when she was fed. However, in the end I was able to get some great shots of her.
A Unique Photo Prop:
I loved mama’s idea of using her wedding dress as a prop. What a sentimental thing to use. The photos of baby girl draped in mommy’s wedding dress are precious. I think that my favourite photos of the little cutie are the ones of her lying on the bed with her little peach tutu and flower headband. I love how the colours of their bedspread and the accent pillow go perfectly with her outfit. She looks like a little sleeping princess. And I must mention that I love that beautiful head of hair of hers. It’s so long for a newborn.
This little family is awesome. Great parents and great little girl. I wish them nothing but the best and I hope to see them again in the future. 🙂
