Calming colors plus a little 4th of July – a newborn photography session

Cade was a sweet 8 pound 7 ounce baby who had a busy older brother and an adoring mom and dad.  When mom filled out the questionnaire for his newborn photography session, she asked for calming colors, like you would see at a beach, and to incorporate Summer/4th of July.  To me calming beach colors are vibrant blues, tans and a hint of mint. So those are the colors I chose to plan his session with.  We also were able to incorporate the 4th of July and dads love of golf in to his session.

 

90% of the time I start sessions with family/sibling shots, I know that sessions can get long and boring for a 2 year old so I want to give them the option of being done and not having to wait around. That was the case with Cades newborn session as well. I love how his older brother gave him the perfect kiss! When I photography families/siblings I keep them neutral, gray, bone or a mocha color, this will ensure that no matter what color your walls are the family portrait will not clash. I also always make sure to do one of the baby on this same color by him/herself so that you have an option to do a cluster of photos.

Moving on into the session it was time to incorporate a bit of the sublte calming colors mom asked for, I picked this tray for that exact reason, not only is it in a nice blue, but it has 2 uses, I can use it for “tucked in” pose that would pair well with the family pictures since I used cream, but then I  changed the pose so that it would give the picture a pop of color. The floor choice of the white floor was done on purpose so that the baby really stood out in this photo.  I personally love that it is one newborn prop in two different ways, allowing us to move the baby only a little.

Dad was a golf fan, and they brought in the gray knitted hat, but last year while I was vacationing I seen the golf cart and thought that sometime I would use it for a session… it is actually a salt and pepper shaker!! The original idea was to have the golf ball next to Cade, but then he was so sleepy for us, I was able to get him propped up on it, and it adds an extra cute factor (of course he is supported the whole time, saftety first!) I wanted to incorporate a second golf inspired photo but not have it be so literal, so I pulled the visor from my prop closet and paired with the blue fabric. This blue is probably my favorite shade of blue, it reminds of me of the Caribbean!

With a special request from mom to incorporate 4th of July, I pulled the American Flag scarf (yup, a womens scarf is my background!)  and the little kid chair. I actually told Britne this was more of a difficult pose as, while I do this pose almost every session, doing it on the chair was something new.  In another photo we also put the hat mom brought in on him to give it even more of a patriotic flair.  Going with the same flow, I wanted to create another portrait that not only incorporated the tans mom requested, but a bit of red white and blue, so I pulled another hat from the prop closet to create the next patriotic image. I love this one!

Cade was a great sleeper, he just slept and slept and slept. At one point mom said we should wake him up to feed him, but I literally had five more poses to do, we just whipped through them! Know that I needed to incorporate a third color, I chose the mint below. I love this fabric it feels like a towel and is sooo soft, babies just fall asleep on it because it is so dreamy… well, that and my shusher lulls them to sleep.

I did one more prop set up and I needed to pull in all the colors used. My brain think in clusters, I want clients to hang multiple images up on their wall, but I know that the colors need to harmonize. So I pulled the dark blue flokati rug, to bring in some deeper blues so I could match the hat picture, a khaki colored stuff to go with the driftwood bowl and at first I had a cream colored wrap pulled, but thought it would blend to much, so instead I used the light blue you see here and it was perfect. This photo will now fit in to any cluster mom and dad want to do.  For the hat picture I just wanted to do something extra cute, and that hat is one of my favs for boys.

This is just a peek into a full session, this little guy had over 30 images in his newborn gallery, ranging from family shots to pictures of him with his brother and then alone.  If you would like to book your own newborn session, click the contact me tab!
