A baby has a special way of adding joy in every single day. — Author Unknown

 I am a family photographer located in the 6ix (Hey, Toronto!) I wanted to share this in home newborn session because I had so much fun creating it. Together, the family and I dreamt up a soft, pretty palette to work with. I especially love the way that the delicate babies breath compliments the delicate features of 10 day old Jana.  During our session, she was posing up a storm. I have never encountered a baby who is quite as curious and social as this little one. She was wide-eyes and taking her new world during every moment of our session.  I love the beautiful natural light streaming in from their condo on the lake, and I used a soft box to fill any harsh shadow.

Lisa and Rachel:  We love how the subtle prop of baby’s breath makes this session complete.  This is where the creativity of the photographer really shines, knowing how to enhance a session using something as simple as baby’s breath.  We also love the white on white on white here; there is something to be said about simplicity and then the addition of the touch of floral that enhances the already sweet little fingers and toes of this newborn session.
