I met this family at BabyFest NW on Saturday, and since their little guy was already 7 days old we decided we better get right on it and scheduled their session for Monday. Mom was so helpful, and even sent me some great photos of their home and nursery to help me understand their sense of style so I could design the session to fit their needs in such a short amount of time.
I noticed there were two framed photos above the crib already, each showing a black and white image of a young man playing football. When I inquired, mom explained that those men were the two grandpas as young men, and that dad also was a football player. This was a thread I grabbed onto, as it was obviously an important part of their shared family story!
I suggested maybe they’d like to put an image of their family, or even of the little guy up there as part of the series. She did me one better and brought dad’s football helmet. Here’s the image we captured to pay tribute to this family’s story. This is one newborn image that I bet this little guy will grow up proud of rather than embarrassed about, because it shows that he has been a part of the family narrative from the moment he was born.
This session was photographed as part of my BabyFest NW Show Special. Contact me if you have a coupon card and have not yet booked your session, spaces are filling quickly!
