As a newborn photographer in Boise, Idaho, I love that I get to capture the most incredible moments for new parents and families. This time, I had the honor of meeting a handsome little guy and his big sister. The little one was just a few days old and already had a full head of hair and long lashes. When I peeked into his baby carrier, I could hardly contain my excitement. It is not often I get a little one with so much hair, and even on his shoulders! I knew we were going to capture some incredible newborn photos of him.
Capturing the innocence and purity of a newborn baby is one of the most special moments for a photographer. Newborns are only this small and squishy for a short time, and it’s an honor to freeze those moments in time for the parents to cherish forever. During my session with the new family, I noticed that the big sister was just as excited as the parents to meet her new baby brother. She was eager to hold him and give him lots of love. Sometimes adding a new baby to the family can be quite an adjustment for an older sibling, and occasionally they have a difficult time with the changes. This sweet girl was so proud of her brother and I absolutely love with the images we were able to capture of them together. She was so gentle with him and it was heartwarming to see the love she already had for her little brother. I took several shots of the two of them together, and I have no doubt that these photos will be treasured by the family for years to come.
One of the highlights of this session was Samar’s amazing head of hair. It was so full and soft, and it was amazing to see how it contrasted with his adorable blue romper and the lighter backdrops. I used this to my advantage and captured several close-up shots that really emphasized his hair and lashes. And of course, anytime I capture baby smiles I get so excited because I know those will be some of mom and dad’s favorite images of his newborn session! Who doesn’t love baby smiles?
Samar was so good for me, and nearly slept through his entire newborn photography session. We were able to capture so many adorable newborn poses and got so many different newborn portrait setups for his parents. It was nearly impossible for me to choose just a few favorites.
As a newborn photographer, I feel incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to capture these special moments for families. It’s a privilege to be able to provide them with lasting memories of their new addition. If you’re looking for a newborn photographer in Boise, Idaho, I would love to be a part of your story.
