I met Bijou's family through a past client/friend referral (the best kind!) This is not only a huge compliment to me, but a confidence boost that my client loved our newborn experience enough to share CG Photography with friends!
Most newborns can’t make great eye contact. Once in a while I’ll get a baby who can and it makes for a beautiful awake portrait!
How sweet are the grey (or is it gray?!) bow and floral crown?
I always encourage parents to be photographed. As a mom of 4, I know that the postpartum stage is far from pretty, but the new love between parent and newborn is beautiful! (And a little photoshop doesn't hurt!) I work hard to make the new parents feel comfortable and capture the right angles to get the perfect first family portrait.
I often time challenge myself to do something different or creative for each session. I happened to have stunning flowers in the house (thanks hubby) and I knew I had to find a way to incorporate them into the session. How did I do?
