Newborn portrait session with Ira and David. Ira is a lovely, talented mother and clothing designer in the northern Virginia area. She and I have worked together on fashion shoots, but were always on the same side of the lens. Alas, she is on the other side of the lens and I enjoyed capturing these memories for her.
Not all mothers are comfortable taking photos of them breast feeding baby, but if they are it is a wonderful shot to get. This really high lights the special bond between mother and child.
Ira uses only natural materials in her designs and brought along a few pieces for her newborn session. David looked so natural wrapped in her handwoven blanket for these “babe in the woods” photos.
Big brother, Maksim, wanted to be in a photo with his little brother, David, so we set up this shot of them sharing time fishing.
