KINGSTON- Today was busier than normal shooting three sessions; but I couldn’t have asked for a better ending than with this little guy. Kingston was truly on his best behavior settling into every pose just perfect. His mom, Jessica, and dad, Luke, were so sweet but I have to say grandma really may have been the star… besides Kingston of course.
Grandma, or in polish, babcia, could not stop swooning over her newest grand-baby, doing her best to make him smile and feel soothed. The bond between the two will for sure be strong. Lucky for Kingston because who doesn’t want the beautiful doting grandmother?!
We got off to a bit of a slow start. Little Kingston loves to eat but once he was fed things moved right along. As a matter of fact, it may have been one of my quickest newborn sessions yet: 7 different sets as well as; shots with each parent alone, both parents together, and a beautiful pose with babcia.
The entire family made this session smooth especially because Jessica knew exactly what she liked and what she didn’t like. She was clear in her preference of white, gray, and blue and kindly requested to steer clear of creams and browns. This really helped me create the perfect scene for this shoot. Jessica really liked French Blue so I was intentional in choosing props that would complement that shade.
The backdrop in this image was fun and busy so choosing a solid neutral wrap was key in creating a beautiful shot.
Since Luke plays for the NHL with the Phoenix Coyotes , Kingston represented his dad well with these adorable knit hockey skates and helmet with daddy’s number.
Oh Kingston, you will do great things and truly fill your dad’s skates in no time.
