Bump to Baby – Fun photos with maternity belly and newborn baby
This bump to baby session takes place at home, in the week after Baby Charlotte was born. Jen had saved her blue dress from her maternity photoshoot to do a newborn photo in the same dress and pose. Belly to Baby sessions are magical for me, I get so excited putting the photos together, side by side, and seeing what was once a belly bump now an adorable teeny-tiny newborn. I loved the super soft pink blanket you see in this session, it was perfect for a baby girl, soft and light. Texture is really important in newborn photos, blankets and accessories that are from natural materials photograph well. I love shooting newborn photography at the new family’s home, it’s so nice to capture the newborn in its own nursery with its own clothing and props from around the house. The lighting was perfect at Jen ad Jay’s place, there were tons of windows for natural light and open spaces to shoot. Everything was shot with my Canon 5D Mark III with my 50mm F1.2 lens.
