Baby D | Airdrie Newborn Photographer | Newborn Photographer Calgary | Lace & Locket Photography

This baby! His mama booked me so long ago, back in the spring and was born on his due date. He was so stinkin' cute, his little mouth has got to be the most perfect thing I've ever seen. That being said, he wasn't a fan of me. I went on a Tuesday to do his session and he wasn't having any of me. He screamed and cried and all he wanted was mama so I decided after trying for an hour and a half that it just wasn't his day that's totally ok. It happens. Everyone has off days even babes. So I went back the following Sunday morning. I was concerned when I got there and he still wasn't having me. He made me WOOOOORK but once he finally settled down which was a feat in itself, he let me get away with just about anything. It was quite impressive. So these images are from two separate days but I think the first day I only got about 3 images, haha. 

All wraps, fabrics, blankets, layers & props provided by me :) 

Baby W- First Newborn of 2016!

This sweet little boy was so interesting to shoot. Normally I really like to shoot babies within the first 7 days, I know other photographers are more lenient with their timeframes but I just like that gap for me. This little dude was only 4 days I think when he came to me, and he made me work! He would't have me swaddle him, and he was aware of me the entire time! He was just so awake for only being 4 days old he kept me on my toes, I didn't mind though he was just so tiny and cute I really just wanted the extra time to cuddle him. 

Then of course as fate would have it, it was the second session of the year, first session in-studio so naturally something needs to malfunction- MY LIGHTS!! They didnt waste any time getting to it either, 5 snaps into the session I think. So very frustrating so I offered to reshoot at the client's home a couple days later and wouldn't you know it, much more settled, much more willing to let me manipulate him and put him into different poses. 

I LOVE LOVE LOVE baby feet ( I'm going to make a book!) but I have to say, my favourite part of this one was his hair. So much hair! What an angel. Despite the set backs, I was so happy he was my first baby of the new year! 

Baby F!

We waited for him. And waited.....and waited......and I don't think I've waited so long for a little Little to come into the world as long as I waited for this one. I tried to be patient and not text his mamma every hour to find out if she had somehow gone into speed-labour since the last time I talked to her. Nothing. AND THEN FINALLY! He came. And he was beautiful and he was so so amazing for his shoot. It was done on-site in his home, with natural light and he did great. I was so happy to meet him! Some Littles just come into our lives and they stay in our hearts forever. I can't wait to follow this little dude on his exciting little adventures through life!
