This newborn photography session here in my west seattle studio was such a dream!! Clark is the type of baby that every newborn photographer falls in love with. His calm temperament and sleepy movements were SO fun to capture.
Also, let’s talk about Clark’s adorable baby bonnet. I get that some people don’t like them, but I, for one, am a FAN. I just think it accentuates their chubby little faces in such a cute way! Clark’s mom got this bonnet from the adorable online kids boutique called Kate Quinn in case any of you were dying to snag one for own baby!
I have gotten several pieces from this shop for my curated client wardrobe because of their quality organic cotton and really cute colors! I always recommend for my white studio photo shoots to keep colors and patterns to a minimum. The neutrality and lightness from your outfits will really add to the dreaminess of the overall picture! If you use color, which I definitely have in my client wardobe, I recommend muted pinks, blues, and greens. If it is muted and earth-toned, it will go really nicely with the neutral and minimal vibe of your photo shoot!
Chelsey did a great job choosing outfits for her family. She stuck to white and tan neutral colors and added denim in there which looked super classy and came together so well for her entire family portrait.
We also changed the kids out of these outfits and into some matching brother sister outfits. TOO CUTE RIGHT?!!! These outfits are also from Kate Quinn. I’m telling you, if you are like me and a lottt of joy is sparked when you put your kids in cute, high quality clothes, you gotta check this store out. They have warehouse sales all the time too.
(And by the way, I am in no way sponsored by this store. I just love their stuff. 😉 )
I love Clark’s sister’s face in this last pic hahahaha. Like WHAT is this new thing in my life that takes all of mom and dad’s attention away from me?!
Here are some mommy/baby and daddy/baby photos as well because I am in love with them!! Even when there are siblings in these newborn photo shoots, I always like to make sure that we get just mom and her baby and just dad and his baby without anyone else. It is hard to get that one on one time if there are siblings around (trust me, as a mom of a 2 year old boy and 4 month old girl, I can attest to that), but when you can get it, it is so beautiful and peaceful.
