Since I’ve never had children of my own, the more babies I photograph the more I find how different and particular each one is. Each one beautiful and unique. Keyode was such a sweet boy who didn’t mind all the clothing props I put him in- thank goodness. If the parents would have let me, I would have put him in all my new outfits. After 2.5 hours of being photographed, changing poopy diapers and being a food bank they were tired and rightly so!
It’s so sweet when the parents bring items to use in the photographs. This little basket net and hat were lovingly made by grandma on dad’s side. The dad is the head basketball coach of a local high school.
The brown bowl I purchased off of Etsy from PrettyPhotoProps1 and used it in the photos above and below.
The parents have a theme of tan and blue in their home so I bought this cute little outfit off of Etsy to work with their home theme. I love how the first one takes the shape of a heart. He looks so comfortable and dreamy in these two.
I was an art teacher for eight years so I can make a couple of my own little props. I needle felted this sweet little heart for Keyode’s photos. Isn’t he just precious holding that little heart in his hands. The white wooden box I purchased from Home Goods and then bought a chalkboard sign from Michael’s, painted it white to match the box and glued it to the front. I used white chalk markers to match the box and stenciled his name. I love little DIY projects that I can do that add to my newborn sessions!
Mom and dad were so cute with him and you could just tell they are so in love!
Love this little family. So happy to have captured these moments for them.
Welcome to the world little Keyode!
