Sometimes I’ll get a call from a client who, for one reason or another, missed the window on newborn photos. They’ll ask “when is the best time to get baby photos instead?” and my answer is honestly “anytime is the best time!”. Sure I LOVE photographing sitters and crawlers and babies just taking those first unstable steps on dimpled knees and rolly ankles, but to me capturing your little one isn’t just about the big milestones. It’s about all the little ones in between. You’ll want to remember how she loved to chew bunny’s ear, or would always flick over when you put her down on her belly. There’s a certain smile she has at 3months that will have changed another 3 months on. Maybe right now her feet fit exactly in the palm of your hand, and they wont do that 6 months from now.
You get where I’m going with this right?! I want to capture the magic of the bond between you and your little one anytime. All the time.
And that’s what I was lucky enough to do with the lovely Schumann family and their delicious little girl Luca. At five months Luca was all lashes and curious eyes. She was so interested in the camera - but equally enamoured with chewing her dad’s hand. And so it was a simple morning of cuddles and tickles and delighting in one another’s company.
Kyle and Peta, thank you so much for sharing your morning with me. It was truly my pleasure to witness the joy this little girl brings you both.
