Wedding couples that start families and call us when they do are just a joy. Lisa contacted us to take advantage of her wedding gift certificate for a free session. We were so excited to meet baby Leo! When they arrived Leo was awake and ready for photos. Of course he was not dressed because we highly suggest parents put on the outfit when they arrive. I quickly found out that Leo does not like having his clothes changed. Luckily he quickly recovers after it’s all over! During the session we did try some photo without an outfit but Leo was just not having it. He greatly preferred to be dressed or swaddled, no problem. We got many photos with him looking straight into the camera, it was like he knew exactly where to look for us to get the best images. We give all of our parents some guidance on how to best hold their newborn while we take the photos. There is a particular way to make sure everyone is positioned correctly as well as safe while we do it. Once I explained to Lisa how to do this, she quickly fell right into the pose with Leo. Chris joined in making it the most perfect family photo. They are going to be so happy to hang this on the wall! Lisa also brought a special blanket with a monogram. Incorporating these special items into a newborn session is what makes it more personal. We definitely recommend bringing these items into your newborn session. It was a pleasure working with Leo that I made sure to go over some information about the birthday club. The club includes multiple sessions and discounts on prints. We would love to see him visit us again at Ravetta Photography.
