It’s baby central over here! You may remember that a couple of months ago I posted some shots from Harriet and Cal’s baby shower. Well, just one day after Kate and Alex came home with Hugo, Harriet and Cal brought Arlo home.
I had the pleasure of photographing him when he was just 10 days old in their home in Toronto. My approach to newborns is similar to my approach to maternity. I’ll come over, get to know your baby and snap some photos while we spend a, hopefully, relaxing few hours in your home. Everyone is tired in those first few months of new parenthood, so I try to just come round for a short, fun visit that yields some nice memories. If you want me to put your baby in a pumpkin, I’m probably not your girl. Although, if you’re looking to dress your newborn up in an elaborate/funny costume, I probably am. It’s a confusing grey area.
Anyway, I digress. I spent a fantastic few hours with Arlo, Harriet and Cal, before they told me to go home, which I did. Here are some of the results of our afternoon hang:
