One of my favorite things about being an on location photographer is the challenge that comes from walking into a new home for the first time, assessing the lighting, the decor and of course the parents and being able to incorporate who they are into the session itself. Mom and Dad have such a playful fun relationship I truly enjoyed getting to know them a bit and watching them together. I’d like to introduce to you their new bundle of sweetness, Alexia. 10 days old and lifeXpressions first 2009 newborn! Isn’t she just perfect?!
Shortly after I arrived at their Naples home for their maternity session I learned that Dad is a doctor and a musician and that music is a pretty big part of their lives. I think the stream of guitars and the music room upstairs was my first clue, some days I can be very perceptive. *giggle* Seeing all of the instruments immediately set my brain in motion wondering how I could incorporate their love of music into their portraits. At times it was a bit of a challenge but we did manage to capture it in both sessions, hopefully Mom and Dad will agree with me that it was worth the effort!
