I love a good love story; these two have one of the best! I knew dad was from Brazil, but I was surprised when I heard mom speaking Portuguese during their session! It wasn’t until their ordering appointment that I found out this was a beautiful newborn session for childhood sweethearts! Mom and dad met when they were in Kindergarten back in Brazil. Mom moved to the states when she was a kid but moved back home in her teenage years. They reconnected, started dating, and the rest is history! Now they’re adding to their beautiful little family, and I am so honored to document their incredible milestones as their family grows.
Time to Relax for Mom and Dad
When mom and dad arrived, everything was set and ready for the session. The first part of a newborn session with us is the easiest for mom and dad – the entire session is designed to be stress-free, but when it’s baby’s turn in the spotlight, mom and dad truly get to relax. Mom was able to sit back and relax in the makeup chair while Shawntel, our resident hair and makeup artist, took great care of her. Dad hung out on the sofa, chatting with mom while we got to work with little Olivia.
A lot of Variety in the Newborn Session
Mom and dad asked for a few different poses on our newborn questionnaire in a mix of pinks and whites. Olivia had such cute baby rolls and so much hair! She easily moved into the different poses and even gave us a few smiles. We were able to get so much variety! Olivia was such a happy baby, and her newborn portraits turned out beautifully. Mom and dad had a few more minutes to themselves while they changed in the Lifetime of Clicks Client Closet after hair and makeup were finished. Mom chose a beautiful sleeveless dress from our Lifetime of Clicks Client Closet that paired perfectly with one of our camel-colored shirts from J. Crew. Olivia was wrapped in white with a sweet rosette headband and the three of them snuggled for the next 20 minutes or so while we focused on capturing all the love with the camera.
A Show-stopping Newborn Gallery
At their ordering appointment, we discussed multiple walls in their home for a gallery of the newborn session. One choice was a very tall but thin wall that you see as you enter their home. Most clients tend to shy away from more narrow wall spaces because they typically see galleries that are horizontal rather than vertical. Once they saw a few examples of designs on that wall, mom and dad opted for a gorgeous black-framed 5-piece gallery. After we installed the wall art, mom let us in on a little secret. She hadn’t told dad that we were coming to install their gallery that day. He would be completely surprised to see these beautiful images as he walked in the door later that evening! Even after all these years, these childhood sweethearts still do romantic things for each other; it’s just the sweetest thing. We can’t wait to continue celebrating with this family as Olivia grows, and as their family grows, too.
