Remember my lovely maternity photos? :) I was very happy with how those turned out so we arranged to have our newborn photography done with Cottony Photography again! :)
Being pregnant was a beautiful experience that had it’s ups and downs but having Daniel at the end of it all was worth it. Daniel’s 9 days old and we were expecting Era from Cotton Photography to pop by our house and take some lovely shots of Daniel to remember him by.
We were told to feed Daniel and have him sleeping when she came by but of course, newborns being newborns, they are almost never predictable.
Usually he would sleep immediately after being fed but on this very day, he decided to be super awake. For the first many days of his life, he hardly opened his eyes but on this day, his eyes were as big as fish balls and completely refused to go sleep!
Era was an absolute angel about it. And she was super patient with Daniel. I guess now that to be able to take newborn shoots, the photographer must love kids, and must be patient with all of this. As new parents, we were flustered and trying our best to help and feeling bad along the way but she assured us that it’s all ok.
The newborn photography shots came out a lot better than I thought it would. He was fussing and moving so much! Haha! Check out this collage:
I especially love the one of Peter & Daniel together. They look like they are having such a great moment together!
Oh the one that has Daniel and I together? It’s a miracle the photo looked as good as that. In reality, Daniel had pooed (LITERALLY) on my hands and my tee shirt. His poo was even dripping onto the floor! I told Era to quickly shoot before we lose the pose. Cleaning up was QUITE AN AFFAIR. The little devil! Haha
Here’s a shoutout to Era. Thanks for the lovely pregnancy shots & newborn photography shots. :)
My newborn photography package is $650 for 10 soft copy edited photos. :) Check out the newborn photography package here. All props you see are provided by her! All I had to do was to provide the baby LOL!
