Last year I photographed Aiden for his third birthday, so Mat and Darcy asked me to photograph their new baby, Isabella, this year! She just turned 8 weeks old and look how cute she is:
As I was going through and editing these photos, I felt like I was seeing her for the first time. I tend to be distracted by photography at portrait sessions and have less time to admire the cuteness.
I don't have as much experience with baby photography, so it was fun to work out some ideas, especially for the outdoors. This blanket was a special gift, so Mat and Darcy thought it would be cool to feature it in some of the pictures.
Her little ballet outfit. She had a point class to get to after the shoot. ;)
We worked in a few family photos as well.
Bella was getting a little pictured out by now.
You can see Bella was thrilled that her brother was holding her, but he seemed proud and big-brotherly.
Aiden's turn for a few shots. He's a big Angry Birds fan.
Thanks, Mat and Darcy!
