I’m not gonna lie. I brought my game face to this session. Four kids under six (one of which is a newborn, the other a toddler). At least one couldn’t run off so we had that going for us. This was a record number of littles for me at a newborn session. I can confidently say, it was absolutley GORGEOUS. You will agree. So many frameable portraits and unscripted moments of their family of 6.
In hindsight and comparison, their maternity session was cake!
I loved each sibling interacting with Viaan because it really highlights their different stages and sizes. I mentioned in his birth story how this family made my heart ache for having four kids. Their newborn session basically kept that going. They are so beautiful and I smile fondly at the memories they will make over the decades to come as six.
Normally newborn sessions are done in-home but if the weather is nice we can take it outside. In their case, they traveled to Cape Town for his birth and didn’t have any real attachment to their AirBnb as one would have to your own home so all the more why a beautiful outdoor setting made sense. If you are moving between homes or traveling through, I can help advise great locations that can work instead.
Newborn sessions like these include your classic portraits that you might really want to frame and gift to family. But also are lifestyle in focus, getting all the unscripted moments in between and angles that are flattering but not as rigidly posed. You won’t see a baby in an unnatural position in a pot (awesome as that style is, it’s not mine). But you will see all her tiny details and portraits of her natural brand new beauty. Newborn sessions come in a package with a maternity session and a jaw-dropping luxury album. Because I believe in printing images and holding them in your hands. Inquire here for more information.
