Nolan pretty much rocked his first ever photo session. I got to try so many set ups with him in such a short amount of time because he slept through most of it!
Mom and Dad requested deer antlers (they are becoming my most popular newborn prop request!) and anything rustic. It was a lot of fun designing and planning his session and I'm excited to share these with you!
Getting those macro shots of newborn's tiny fingers, feet and lips are so fun! Babies change so quickly those first few weeks and months, it is so nice to document exactly how teeny tiny they are!
Mom had also asked about getting a shot of Nolan with one of our calves. For safety reasons, I don't do photos of newborns/infants/young children with our cattle or calves, but I do offer some photoshop magic to make it happen!
Our newborn calves were not cooperating when I tried to take some shots of them, so the Gust Family of Gust Brothers' Pumpkin Farm were gracious enough to let me get some photos of their days old bottle fed calves to use for Nolan's composite photo. So, please note that the photo of the calf and Nolan below is not real -- it's what is called a composite. I set Nolan in the right position at my studio to add him to the photo of the calf.
I always strive to give my clients what they want in their session, so I am so glad we were able to come up with this solution! Photoshop can be so fun!
