Newborn Photography | Grand Cayman | Baby Shea
On July 1st my sweet little newborn baby boy Shea James Keenan was born at George Town Hospital, Grand Cayman. I had the absolute best care and experience with all the doctors and nurses.
It’s been a beautiful last 4 months with my baby on maternity leave. I went back home to Canada for the majority of my leave to spend time with my family. Of course, the photographer in me still had to do some sessions in the beautiful autumn light (will be blogging some of my favourites soon) but having the grandparents spend the entire 4 months with my kiddies was just the best.
A week after Shea’s birth it was time to do his newborn photos! Still recovering from a c-section I was not up to doing a shoot at all but I did space it out over the course of 2 days.
So here’s my confession…. I LOVE minimalist, simple, natural, and pure images of newborns! To be clear, I still love sweet photos of babies in cute props and buckets and all that lovely colour. I still smile when I see images like that. BUT for me, what really pulls at my heart strings are the more simpler images of just baby. There are amazing photographers in this industry that can photograph babies in props like no other. It’s a beautiful thing to have so many different styles of photography. With my first, I put her in all the cutesy props but with Shea I had a different vision. I had my baby lead the way when I photographed him. I am in love with him and his photos and I hope you enjoy them, too!
