A Relaxed and NaturaL Feeling Newborn Session in my Hamilton Studio with Emiliano, Hannah and Reyna
When Emiliano arrived into the studio for his newborn session, he was so relaxed that I decided to place him straight onto my beanbag as he was.
The cute little knit he was wearing was gifted by a friend of Hannah & Reyna, so having him photographed in this helps make these images even more special too.
The best thing about starting the session this way was how natural and simple the images feel.
Capturing little Emi just as he was, with his perfect little newborn stretches and all.
After a little stretch he started to wake so I undressed him and put him in a nappy cover and blanket (from my studio collection) and handed him to Reyna for a feed.
Once he was full, Hannah and Reyna got to take turns having a snuggle with him before I moved him back to my posing beanbag for some more portraits of him on his own, all curled up just like he was inside his mama's belly only a few weeks ago.
We finished off the session with a few postpartum portraits - a portrait where we take a moment to celebrate your body for where it's at right now.
Embracing it for all the beautiful changes that come with powerfully bringing life into this world.
Throughout this whole process, I helped guide Hannah & Reyna into positions that would be flattering yet allowed plenty of space for natural movements.
You can see a little glimpse of the behind the scenes in this instagram reel at the end - But first you have to see some of these final images!
Little Emi, you are SO loved and it was such a pleasure to capture you and your beautiful Māmā's x
