Welcome to the world baby Everett! A few weeks ago I got to meet this handsome wee guy and catch up with his family.
My love for newborn photography has been re-ignited with doing these 'lifestyle' shoots. Going to families homes and taking a more documentary approach to the photography. Capturing real moments and creating natural, less posed portraits. It is such a fleeting and precious time to have a newborn in the home and these portraits help preserve the memories.
Big sister Ayla was on hand to give Everett plenty of hugs & kisses.
This black & white of Katrina and her babies is my favourite from the whole session. I just love Ayla 'reading' her book and wee Everett gazing up at his Mum. This photograph wraps up everything I love about the lifestyle genre of portraits - there is so much connection & love within this photograph yet no one is looking at the camera, it's completely in the moment.
Geerlofs family thank you so much for having me over to take these portraits for you. It was very much a pleasure to catch up again & meet handsome baby Everett! xx
