Everyone, please welcome Violet, the newest member of our little photography family! Enjoy the pictures of this cutie pie!
This precious little one came into my photography studio in Eugene, Oregon during the first week of February with her mom, dad, and big brother, Jacoby. They were such a fun family to work with, and their pictures turned out beautifully. I especially had fun with Jacoby. That little guy is quite the ham and he knows it! He loves to be silly. He also loves his new baby sister, and was more than willing to hold her and give her lots and lots of kisses so we could get some cute shots of them together during Violet’s newborn photography session. I know he’s going to give his little sister lots of laughs as she grows up! You can see how adorable they are together in the middle left picture below.
Aren’t they such a sweet family? I couldn’t believe how much Jacoby takes after his dad. What a handsome pair! What do you think? Will Violet grow up to look just like her mom? Either way it’s easy to see that Violet is going to be beautiful. She is a very lucky girl and so well loved!
Violet was born just a little before Valentine’s day, and although her mom didn’t want anything overly girly I couldn’t resist doing a Valentine’s day setup for at least one of the shots. What can I say? It was just too perfect to pass up. It’s not often that I have a chance to go all out with the ribbons and hearts, and the photographer in me just knew that it would make the cutest picture. Violet’s mom was nice enough to indulge my whim, and fortunately, she ended up loving it! I do too! I think Violet looks so sweet sleeping on that swing, and all the streamers and hearts are perfect for conveying the celebration and love her family feels for her. Anyway, you’ve got to do something a little special for a Valentine’s baby, right?
We also couldn’t help but play on her name a little by incorporating some violet color into the newborn photography session.
There are lots of different purples that can be termed violet, but we decided on a light, dusky purple that looks really lovely and blends nicely with the neutral creams and grays we used for the majority of the pictures. I think it gave the session a really sweet, vintage feel that totally works for this modern girl. Violet is a beautiful name, a beautiful color, and a beautiful baby!
It was great to have this growing family in my photography studio and to get to know them a little bit while we celebrated the beginning of Violet’s life. She was so good and cooperative through the session, and we were able to get some wonderful photos to record her brand new babyhood. I know there are so many happy times ahead for all of them!
