Newborn Session with Ellie at The Camera’s Eye

So it’s been nearly….four months 🙂 But I didn’t want to forget to share newborn pictures of Ellie with The Camera’s Eye! You can read Sam’s first-hand account of the session here.

She was nine days old (we did the session on her actual due date!) and, as newborns usually do, slept through almost the whole thing.

And as a bonus…a sample of the birth announcement they ultimately went with, featuring the fall-themed photos from their session 🙂

And as a bonus bonus…her completed canvas cluster, right over the living room mantle 🙂 I made up a few sample cluster arrangements and we worked on it over email:

For yet another bonus…an adorable onesie collage! I love coming up with finished wall art for my clients 🙂

Newborn Canvas Clusters with The Camera’s Eye

You might remember our earlier post by blogger Sam about her daughter’s newborn shoot with The Camera’s Eye. Now what to do with those photos? I’ve written before about how much I LOVE canvas and I LOVE wall art. Well placed photographic art can make your home TRULY yours…especially in the case of a newborn photo shoot 🙂

After walking through a few rooms of Sam’s house, we decided that the best place for her canvas cluster would be above the fireplace in the living room. Another place that I find makes a good spot is above the baby’s changing table, but they were already fully decorated in there 🙂

She sent me her image choices, and I sent back a few files with different configurations (using unretouched images)…

I love working from initial shoot to finished photo product with my clients!
