This is the left image. This was one of the sessions that I did late last fall. I recently got the order which is why the lab is just now asking about using the this storyboard. I am looking forward to seeing it. It is 30x20 storyboard larger than I normally do for things like this. Bigger is not always better, but I think in this case it will and often it really does the images justice.
This was actually one of my favorite sessions at the time. The poses and relationships captured in these images are just what I want to capture from a newborn portrait session. I loved so many of them as you can see from these images that I narrowed it down to post.
The quote used on this one is the definition of love. [LOVE] deep affection, to adore completely, state of pure bliss. (Great description of Love, uh? And the way we feel about our newborn baby.)
The next three images are those that I love to capture in a newborn portrait. This is why I want to photograph them as young as possible before they become aware of their surroundings and before they desire to stretch out and lose that fetal position.
The below image: IN THE HANDS OF LOVEI love the expression on these parents' faces. You don't even really have to ask for this expression...it is just natural...it's just the look they have when they look at their brand new baby.
When I designed this with Baby Alyssa's mommy, I had forgot which quote we had discussesd to use...I was thinking she asked me to pick one. So I picked this one and then before I finished the order, I remembered us discussing it in more detail, but I wasn't sure which one it was. So I emailed it to her with this one and I asked her if she liked it like this or did we discuss another quote. I wanted her approval on the quote as well as the font, her name and age as I listed etc. She emailed me reminding me that we had discussed the one I had used in one of her other custom collages that I designed within her preview slideshow. Other than that she loved it. This was the first quote I did: "No one understands how someone so little can change their world, until they hold their baby in their arms." I like both of them and I think both were very appropriate for the images used.
