Baby’s First Year, A Book of Photography, Calgary: Jaime picked up the book we created to highlight a year of photo sessions staring her son, Liam. The sessions began in our studio when Jaime was eight months pregnant and finished when we visited their home to capture images of Liam at Christmas.
The book was around fifty pages and was 12×12 inches complete with dust cover. I have chosen a few pages to feature in this post. Please note that the foxfoto watermark was not on the actual book….of course.
We spend much time with the newborn session, as this is so meaningful to the family. Although we always do many images of the newborn, we like to feature the relationship of the baby to all family members, including big brothers and sisters. These are treasured more and more as time goes by. We offer to do the newborn portraits in two sessions, one with the darker backgrounds and then in the second session we use a white background. Almost everyone chooses to do both sessions.
Photographing a baby’s first year allows us to see the amazing growth and changes that occur in only a few months. With Liam’s big brother Aiden, we watched how lovingly he handled his baby brother. Aiden was always ready for his “close-up” and to be photographed with the family. He would then return to his iPad while things carried on around him.
We have clothing in our studio for our clients, whether it is for maternity or baby. My stock of hats, props and little outfits is growing by the week.
The bath tub is always fun. We keep a jar of bubbles just for this session.
There is always one outdoor session. We met with Jaime, Jeff, Aiden and Liam at Confederation Park and walked around, taking many candid portraits of the boys playing. Liam was most curious about the tall grass and the dandelions, just like his big brother.
Thank you, Jaime and Jeff. We look forward to seeing you again.
