Sweet baby Allison melted my heart from the moment I met her. That hair! And those gorgeous blue eyes and long eyelashes! She’s going to break some hearts when she gets older.
Allison’s family recently moved here from out of state, so she was a little bit older when I met her for her newborn session at her family’s home in Fort Collins, CO. She was actually about 4 weeks old on the day of her session. She had moments of alertness (and perfect eye contact with the camera), but after getting a nice full tummy, she slept for a majority of the session.
Henry was such a proud big brother, and posed nicely for a few images with baby sister. He was a typical busy, inquisitive 3-year-old, and asked me all about my lights and great big soft box. After lying still for portraits, he was ready for a snack, and playing legos with daddy. I had to snap a few images of them playing together, of course!
Miss Allison had such gorgeous coloring, which gave me the chance to play around with some bolder colors for her newborn portraits. I absolutely love how she photographed on the green backdrop, but I love the blue and yellow setup, as well. And blue and purple is one of my all-time favorite color combinations. I’m transitioning towards a more neutral/organic color scheme for most of my images, but sometimes it’s fun to play with color.
