Baby Ariyah - North Brisbane Newborn Photographer
Summer was in full swing for this beautiful little girls newborn photo shoot!
A last minute booking right before Christmas meant we had the full blown heat and humidity of one of Brisbane's hottest summers well upon us.
And Ariyah loved it! She was so content in her sleep, even her boisterous big brother Zayden didn't wake her!
Zayden was a firecracker! Full of energy and so inquisitive of everything around him. I had to pull out all my tricks to capture some photos of him, but what we got in the end was gorgeous!
With the help of their older sister Breanna we managed two sibling photos, a sweet simple one of them sitting together, and then a tricky one where photoshop came to the rescue!
Using some toys to get Zayden to look into the pram, we encouraged him over to the set, and then once he was done in the studio we placed little Ariyah into the pram while Breanna held it steady and captured the second half of the image. I stitched the two photos together to create a safe and beautiful family photo.
Some of my favourite images at every session are family photos. These are the images that will become the most valuable over time as family members grow and change. It is such a beautiful thing for children to have images like this of their family to look back on when they are adults themselves.
We had some girly fun with a pink toned set, fluffy curls and roses bringing the girl tone to the maximum!
Since Ariyah's mum loves purple, we included a lovely purple set as well with lavender basket and Ariyah snuggled beautifully in a little butterfly wrap, just divine.
Another thing I love to caputure at newborn sessions is the tiny details, little fingers, lips, eyelashes and toes. Perfect yet tiny and new, these macro images always make my heart sing.
It was such a beautiful morning in the studio with this family, there was so much love in the room it left me on a high the rest of the day!
