Half a Day with Elize + Attis

I spent an afternoon with this rad family. You may remember a few years back I documented the day Attis was born, so it was really wonderful to see Attis so welcoming to his little sister. He played music for her and read to her. He was also so incredibly loving mimicking his dad caring for his mama, making sure she was fed and cuddled. Ya know, a lot of people might think having a photographer spend half a day with you while you have a newborn could be too much, but actually, it’s way less stressful and more casual than a Lifestyle Portrait Session. You just go about your day doing all the things you would normally do and I can be a fly on the wall capturing all the sweet moments and messy moments and funny moments. Basically just capturing your perfectly imperfect real life. These Day in the Life sessions are my favourite type of session. I love them because they are so real and honest. They also come with a super sweet family film. So scroll down and enjoy half a day with Elise and Attis.

Avery, 3 Weeks Old.

The most successful time to do newborn sessions with props and posing is when baby is 5 to 12 days old. But sometimes people are unable to do a session so soon after birth, or sometimes you don't think about it until after baby arrives. And that's totally fine! This was a sweet Christmas gift to these new parents. They contacted me and a couple days later we did the session. Avery was 3 weeks old. And even though by this age they are less sleepy and less curled up from being so fresh from the womb, there is still so much newness to capture. They are so teeny tiny for a short time, they grow and change really fast! So even if it's technically past the 5 to 12 days, your baby will never be teenier or tinier then they are right now.
And just a side note, the bears in the picture below are Avery's parents childhood bears. Adorable!
