“Oh, be my baby, I’ll look after you…”
The first thing that comes to mind when I think of baby Sofia are her eyes. So inquisitive, and bright! This precious bundle of joy is brought to us by parents, Mark and Emilia, who I met with earlier this year for their fun and trendy maternity session in Toronto’s gorgeous Liberty Village.
So as the weeks of early summer passed, it was just a matter of waiting for baby. We had no idea if it would be a boy or a girl, but I will never forget how I found out. It came through an email from Emilia shortly after delivery saying “break out the pearls, we have a girl!!!!”. I could not contain my excitement becauseI will find every excuse to use pearls in my sessions, I am so glad she loves them as well.
Now, baby Sofia was in no mood to sleep through her photography session, so we had to make do with the time and take wakeful photos instead, because, as Emilia put it, “she is one busy body!” I have to understand that each baby is unique, and will act differently with each session, and while it was unusual to photograph a non-sleeping baby, it was a nice change because Sofia’s eyes were so captivating! And truly, this is how her parents want to remember her in these first precious days of life. As you can see, Emilia and Mark loved orange and coral, and I didn’t hesitate because it’s definitely one of my favourite colours too.
I am so glad to share these pretty images here. Congrats Emilia and Mark, she’s just perfect!
