This sweet little guy was my last newborn session of 2017 and he did not disappoint! Lars came into my studio with his mom, dad, and two older siblings for his newborn session. Mom had told me ahead of time she liked warm neutrals, and I’ll tell you, warm neutrals liked Lars! One of my favourite poses was when he was snuggled with Dad and had just a sliver of one eye open. Dad is a big hockey fan and hopes that his kids play hockey and love it as much as him! (sounds much like my own household!).
I loved this little guys’ name, and it has such a cool story behind it. Lars is a shortened version of his mother’s maiden name Larson- what a great way to incorporate your maiden name into your child’s name! His middle name, Lindsay, is also his Grandfather’s middle name. His great-grandfather served in World War II, and a fellow soldier, Lindsay, saved his life. What a wonderful way to honour a man through the generations.
Mom did a fantastic job of coordinating outfits for the family. Everyone was in casual, but put together clothing, making it easy to match baby Lars to them.
Lars’ two older siblings who were angelic in front of my camera. Lila is completely in love with her baby brother. She loved holding him during their sibling images. Big brother Henrik is taking his time warming up to newborn brother, but loves to touch his soft skin. He’s incredibly gentle too!
Lars slept like a champ through his entire newborn session. This little baby looked so peaceful and happy in every photograph I took of him, it was hard to choose which ones to post!
