Baby Victoria was as regal as her name sounds! She was every bit a princess, from her squishy tiny toes, to her full cheeks and delectable stature. A slightly bigger baby, and over that 10 day mark, so very stable and easy to work with, she had a fantastic session.
Victoria’s mommy is a friend and client of my good friend Veronica Liguori, owner of VeroLuce Photography, who specializes in Boudoir and Glamour Photography. She was referred to me through Veronica, so it was only fitting that Veronica came that day to assist me during her session!
I always enjoy sessions with my photographer friends that specialize in other fields, so there is no conflict of interests. Putting two creative minds together is always better than one! And since Veronica has assisted me before, she knew exactly what I needed and when I needed it, which always makes my job easier and the session flow much smoother.
Baby Victoria was a gem! We were able to do 7 beanbag poses (the extra being the additional side laying pose that we did as an alternate to give extra variety), as well as two additional potato sack poses – one on wood, and one on fur flokati. As you all know by now, the potato sack is one of my favorite poses to do, especially with those animal hats, such as the bunny one we used here from The Knitting Bitty, and wraps from Mom N Pop.
Since Victoria was so regal, we definitely had to do some photos with her, in froggy and in taco, with regal crowns from Crowned Embellishments. Victoria was photographed in a palette of pink and taupe / tan, so we got the best of the ‘girlie’ shots, and some organic neutral ones, as well.
Photos of just Victoria by herself are some of my favorites, as well, such as in Prone with nothing but her curled, tush high in the air. Some people have this mis-notion that you cannot do newborn sessions with babies over a few days old. Wrong! That just means you went to the wrong newborn photographer!
I usually see babies anywhere from 3 days all the way through 4 weeks old, on occasion, and am successful with every single one of them. In fact, the majority of my babies are between 2-3 weeks of age when I see them, as I like them over that 10 day mark when they are little more settled and stable. But again, it depends on the baby – every baby is different, and little Miss Victoria was nothing short of perfect, even at 16 days old!
