A Pug and his new baby brother!
What do you get when you mix a one eyed pug with the cutest baby boy ever and their two amazing parents?
Basically, the cutest session ever!
Prepare yourselves for this giant dose of adorableness you guys- I'm not kidding!
I had the chance to hang out with Ajax the Pug and his family including his new baby brother last month and it was the best lifestyle session ever. Also, small disclaimer- I'm biased but only just slightly. This is my newest nephew.
I rarely shoot baby sessions, and if I do they are always lifestyle snuggle sessions like this one. I use to do the whole props and impossible poses but it was a ton of work, I generally ended up covered in less than great smelling fluids and the final images, while adorable, did not reflect that family at all. I stepped away from newborn sessions all together thinking that was the only way to do them and since I hated that way I refused to do them at all. Flash forward to the past year and I realized that there was a way that I could still work with families but do it in a way that reflects them while still staying true to my style. So big announcement- we now offer in-home lifestyle newborn and family sessions.
So anyhow! When Val asked me about shooting this session, she knew she wanted three things.
1- Their pug Ajax in the shots
2- In their home and
3- no props!
Um, hello! I'm your girl! (okay, I know I was already their girl. I'm the Aunt. BUT that does not mean that they had to pick me!)
We shot their session when the little guy was just about 7 weeks old since I live about 4 hours away. We got so many smiles and Ajax even got plenty of kisses in with his new brother.
When my son found out that he was going to be a cousin, he found this onesie online that read "My big brother is a Pug!" As soon as he saw it, he knew he had to get it for his future cousin. Boy or girl, it didn't matter to him. That was THE shirt and he was willing to pay for it himself. Well, obviously we ordered it and you can only imagine how excited he was to find out that his special shirt made it into the photo shoot!
