I was so thrilled to meet baby Olivia when she was only five days old to capture her newborn portraits in my studio that is FINALLY finished! (Check out some images on my Instagram feed!) And even more excited that in conversation I found out her beautiful mommy grew up in Perkasie, PA, which is a stone’s throw from where I grew up in Lansdale…such a small world! Aside from the randomness of our childhoods, this was a special session as Riviera Productions was on hand to film a promotion video for my studio to give parents a feel for what the newborn portrait experience is like. (Final video to come soon!) And I was also delighted to have my friends and fellow professionals on hand to show the beautiful extras you can add to your session to make it over the top special. Fern & Foxtail can create magical floral crowns for baby, mom or both! And they can even come to your session to specially design florals around a basket setup.
And new moms, I remember what it was like to think about family portraits a week after giving birth. I believe my thought process was “you gotta be f***ing kidding me…step in front of the camera? No, no, no!” This is such an important time and of course we all want to remember what your baby looked like, but when they grow up, they also want to look back and remember what you looked like when they were that small. So come to the studio and relax while Brittany Gomez and/or Cheryl Nacario work their magic with makeup and hair.
In the end I want you to walk away with a truly unique and beautiful experience and with portraits you will pass down through the generations. I hope you enjoy some of my favorites of baby Olivia and her proud parents, John and Megan!
