The Cooper family are Baby Planners, so we’ve been with them from the beginning, before Laughlan had even arrived. The very first time we met, Dragana and Russell were a little unsure of what to expect, but they dutifully dressed in the clothing styles I recommended and brought a hand knitted blanket that Russell’s mother gave him when he was a kid. It was a cold and wintery day, but the light was magical. After we got through the “get to know you” stage, they were glowing with excitement, and we had lots of fun giggling and taking pictures. The best part is that now they will have beautiful images to share with Laughlan when he’s older. Fast forward a few months, and you can see the bouncing baby boy himself, at newborn and most recently sitting up (6 months ish). They will complete their Baby Plan next spring around his first birthday, and will receive a collage of their favourite images from each session to remember all of these amazing milestones of the first year of his life. We are also talking about designing an album after the last session so that they have a portable and archival way to hold onto lots of images that they will love forever. More on that to come!
