On October 15th, I was in Ontario for Jocelyn and Gabriel’s wedding. While I was leaving Halifax I heard that my friends Jake and Heather had a baby. I knew they were expecting, but figured I wouldn’t be around for it. I offered to take some newborn photos for them. They knew that I didn’t have my usual newborn photography equipment with me, so I was working with just my wedding gear.
Olivia was so cute when i got to see her at 4 days old. She is the youngest baby I’ve had the opportunity to photograph (aside from my nephew Connor, but that was in hospital so it doesn’t really count). We took a photo with each of Jake’s favourite team jersey’s; Dutch soccer, Patriots football (Tom Brady jersey which Olivia didn’t like) and a Canadiens jersey. Jake and Heather are a bit of a rarity in that Jake is a die hard Habs fan and Heather a Leafs fan. Only time will tell which side Olivia gets drawn to, but if I know Jake, he will make sure she’s a Canadiens fan.
I personally like black and white best for newborn photos (well most photos for that matter) so I decided I would post only black and white photos today. Here are a few from our afternoon together. I hope Olivia enjoys her first Christmas coming up :)
