I like to show movement in family portraits whenever I can, and this family photograph is the perfect example of how delightful the result can be. Baby is happy because Mom is playfully holding him in the air. With this shot, I was able to capture joyful connection, playfulness, and movement--all in one shot. I particularly love that I got a great profile shot of Mom, highlighting her bright face and beautiful blonde hair. Baby is a cute little redhead. Neutral colors, including a pop of Navy blue) were chosen for the clothing, so when I photographed them in my Mt Lebanon studio, I selected a gray background. This neutral background allows the viewer to concentrate on this one moment between Mom and Baby without anything else in the shot to distract.
Many of my clients take advantage of my Baby Plan, which allows you to receive discounts on shoots during your baby's first year of life. Specifically, you can have a maternity shoot on location at approximately 36 weeks, a newborn session in your home, milestone sessions at 3, 6, and/or 9 months, and a one year family session on location. In addition to discounting, you also get priority scheduling, which during the busy seasons (Summer and Fall primarily) can make a big difference.
This family has been a client of mine for years, and it's so fun to see these little ones grow up!
