Simple Newborn Photo Session in Lethbridge [Emmalyn]

Emmalyn arrived a few weeks earlier than expected, which was quite a surprise for her mom and dad who were expanding their business at the same time and trying to focus on opening a new location before she arrived. She quickly changed their focus (and added a few long days for her dad). We did the photos on her original due date, so even though she had been hanging around for a couple weeks, she was still newborn tiny and fit perfectly in her parents’ hands.

Her mom had some favourite photo ideas of what she wanted their photoshoot to look like, so we went with a very simple newborn photo session. This meant clean backgrounds and lots of photos that would look great in black and white, and with a focus on Emmalyn.

Emmalyn did throw a bit of a wrench in our plans in that she refused to do any photos where she wasn’t being held! As a result we got so many great photos with her mom and dad holding her. In the end she compromised with us by doing a few by herself as long as she was swaddled.

The most coveted hilarious action shot! Emmalyn set a new record with this happening THREE times during photos. We had a designated splash zone by the end where I tried not to step ;)

It can seem a little daunting to work pets into a photo when you’re already juggling a newborn, but I love taking the time to get at least one photo of the whole family together. Their dogs Mila and Lillow loved being involved and helping out with their new baby.

I’m all for transparency in photoshoots and don’t want first time parents to think their baby is the only one in the world who won’t sleep through their newborn photos! Emmalyn, like most babies I photograph, was not actually sleeping through her whole session like I made it look. This was a lot of the reality we were dealing with every time we put her down ;)
