I’m used to creating newborn photos in New York nearly every time we visit, but I was so excited to photograph Aavya’s first portrait session! You might say Aavya’s parents are Turn Loose the Art fans. In the last four years or so, we’ve photographed their engagement session, wedding, anniversary portraits, Aiden’s newborn photos and now Aavya’s newborn photos as well. One of the things we love about photographing Sadiaka and Jay and their family is how much meaning they infuse in everything they do in their sessions.
Sadiaka will admit, she has a lot more clothing for Aavya and scads of adorable headbands. We used several of them to tame Aavya’s wild and thick hair, but this image I took before we dressed her is one of my favorites from the session. Just look at that newborn pucker!
Jay just barely made it home from work to join in for a few photos with his baby girl.
Don’t worry, there’s more to come soon! I’ve got plenty of photos of Aavya, Aiden, and the whole family. While Sadiaka got Aavya ready for her newborn shoot, I ran around the living room with Aiden and captured his toddler expressions, so much like our own son. It cracks me up how alike they are and the facial expressions that can only be full of sarcasm even at that age. Soon, though!
