About a year ago I got to photograph this lovely couple, Brian and Jordan. I've known Brian since I was about 15 years old, but it was my first time meeting Jordan. They traveled from Atlanta, GA to me so I could do some engagement/pre-wedding photos. A few months later I got to photograph their actual wedding. Fast forward time by a year and you'll see that I got to photograph their very first child's newborn photos. Our first plan was to photograph them here in Mentor, Ohio because Jordan and Brian were traveling here for a wedding. Well it came to many of us as a huge surprise when Jordan went into labor 3-4 weeks early. Welcome to the world Brynn Schiffbeauer - you surely made your entrance on your own time! This left us one option; I was boarding a plane and traveling to Atlanta, GA to photograph that sweet angels face.
Jordan is the type of client that photographers appreciate because she APPRECIATES photographers; she appreciates art and creativity and the whole process that goes with it. I knew once I was in GA she would 100% okay with me doing whatever I wanted and whatever it took to get the right photos. We started with some classic window light photos with baby Brynn. It took us a few tries to get her to fall asleep as she was hungry hungry hungry BUT once we did it was beyond angelic and sweet.
Next we did some photos that will always hold a special and sentimental place in Jordan & Brian's heart. We used their wedding vale as a prop and wrapped baby Brynn in it while she was sleeping.
Now.. this one was the tricky one. I wanted to do a milk bath shoot with the newborn, but I knew it might be the hardest pose to achieve. After lots and lots of feedings, cuddles, and warming of the water we finally got Brynn to cooperate and I got my perfect shot!!!
We ended our session back in Brynn's nursery where we did a lifestyle shoot with her mommy and daddy. At this point it seemed like Brynn was exhausted and tired of us setting her up in silly poses. lol. She gave her parents a few cries and few different diaper changes before we were finally done and she could sleep in peace!
Thanks for inviting me into your home Brian & Jordan; capturing this special time in your life means so much to me!!!
