Beautiful Baby R | Airdrie Newborn Photographer | Airdrie, AB | Lace & Locket Photography

This is such a sweet family! This mama has got to have the most amazing, supportive, incredible parents who gifted her a maternity session + newborn session from me for her very first little baby who was coming in December. I was so honoured they chose me when I know there's so much amazing talent & options around for maternity and newborn photographers and yet they chose me so I wanted to provide an exceptional experience for them. 

Mama had her maternity session back in October and you can see that session here. She wore a red maternity gown from my collection and I wanted to tie the sessions together somehow - coordinate them - so I got one my favourite prop suppliers (check her Etsy page out here) to custom create a little romper + tieback set specifically for this baby before she was born. 

Sweet Baby R was the only baby in December that was born after her due date. She was also the ONLY baby that did not need to have her session reshot due to fuss or lack of cooperation. She was an absolute dream which I was so relieved about after a month of babies who didn't want to be wrapped, didn't want to sleep or settle or have me in their face with my big black camera. Her session was shot in her own home where I travelled to, in her bay window with stunningly natural, beautiful light. LOVED IT.

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 :)

What a gorgeous family! And how blessed are they with three of the most beautiful girls ever! This family was a real joy to photograph and I enjoyed every moment of it. Baby G was born mid-September and shot at 6 days old in her own home! Such a beautiful little babe. 

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!
