Isla was born in late summer and I met her mother months and months before. I feel like she was long-awaited and worth every minute of suspense. Her parents decided to not find out her gender prior to her birthday (which was super exciting). It also meant I couldn’t plan too many props ahead of time–I had to wait to choose appropriate pillows and such.
Her shoot came out stunning. Based on the chats I had with Isla’s parents, we used props that were meaningful and pointed…such as the Shel Silverstein books which were a gift to Isla from her grandmother. And her father’s fireman helmet (obviously, he is a firefighter here in the city and without being a cliche, I’ll say it just once, he’s a hero to many).
Here are a few of my favorites from the session–Isla, welcome to the world, beautiful girl. Your daddy is going to have his hands full once you’re old enough to date! Maybe I can introduce you to my nephew when the time comes. ;0)
