This little newbie was just over a week old. (A great time to capture that newbie look.) Black and white was just timeless to create the final portraits in. Thanks L&J, for allowing me to photograph your two beautiful girls.
In the good ole days of film (I can't believe I'm using that expression at my age), I was known as a black and white specialist. My clients and I loved the timeless look of bw portraits. All the emotion comes singing through and to me that is what makes a great portrait. Even the most advanced photoshop tricks can't replace the human connection in a great image.
This newborn session was perfect for showcasing this classic heirloom look as the emotion that is evoked from the parents love of their little guy translates so well in these portraits. While my Hasselblad was retired a few years back, I think I may just have to test out Ole Bessy for old times sake.
How adorable are these little angels ? These twin sisters were fresh out and a little over 5 lbs each !!! I photographed Mom and Dad as newlyweds and look at the beauties they just added to their family. They had these adorable bracelets custom made by a friend. It will be nice to look back and see how tiny they were when they look at their bracelets.
