I love it when parents choose to do heirloom toddler photography sessions in studio. Such a classic choice that is a true Southern tradition. This lil’ lady came to my home studio in celebration of her birthday. She is wearing a family heirloom dress that has been passed down through the generations. It is one that her mom wore around the same age and now her daughter is being photographed in it for her own heirloom portraits.
The birthday gal was having a rough morning, so we eased into things by photographing her sweet stuffed doggie to show her how things are done. We played games, played her favorite song and we even used a bit of tape to assist us. I love all the expressions we got from her during her heirloom toddler photography session – even the sweet pouts! Adore it all!!!!!
The backdrop used here is one of the hand painted canvases offered through Yvonne Niemann Photography. This traditional choice worked wonderfully with her complexion and her beautiful dress. Love how it worked in the B&W images too. I used studio lighting in a natural way to enhance her portraits.
Bare feet was the perfect choice here. Got to love those precious toes!!!! If you are wanting heirloom toddler photography of your own, contact photographer at Yvonne Niemann Photography today to schedule your appointment. This particular session was a simplicity session, but there is an heirloom portrait event coming up this weekend (February 11, 2023) if you prefer just a few images that showcase your little one from the chest up. Inquire for details! Heirloom sessions can be booked anytime during the year. The heirloom portrait event takes place just twice a year.
