I photographed Erin’s maternity in the summer. Erin lives so close to my home, just a few blocks up on the hill, and it is for sure a benefit to have a newborn photographer in the neighbour. Driving with a newborn baby in the car for a long time can be troublesome. Fortunately my studio is located in Burnaby close to highway – very central, and most of my clients can get here less than half an hour. I’ve had clients travelling from Delta and Tsawwassen and I really appreciate they came from far to have me photograph their babies.
When Eva’s parents brought her to my studio, they were sleep deprived. Most new parents are but Eva’s parents hardly slept at all the night before. They were worried Eva might continue to be cranky during the session. To surprise, Eva was so good. Eva’s parents joked they should book me for 24 hours for a month.
In the first days, babies don’t really have a routine and they can be very different on the session day from the previous days. Therefore, I don’t expect or assume anything but just work with how they are during the session. One thing I know though they have to sleep sometime during the three hour session. Because of that, I don’t get anxious even though my little models don’t seem cooperating.
As Eva was born close to Halloween, the personal prop choice was a pumpkin and a Halloween outfit. It turned out to be one of the cutest images to the date.
