Newborn Film Photographer Seattle : Lucas

Meet Nicole Conner of Nicole Conner Photography and her family.  She gave birth to baby Lucas a few weeks before our in-home newborn photo session and he arrived a week early at a whopping 10 lbs 4 oz!  Nicole wanted some updated family photos with their new baby boy, and she was drawn to the realism and authentic moments I capture in my work.  She also loved that I photograph sessions using film.  I was thrilled to hear all of that, so I jumped at the chance to load the family into the car and spend a weekend up near Leavenworth and Wenatchee, WA!  Who doesn’t love a good road trip/weekend getaway with a newborn photo session thrown in :).

Nicole is an expert at home decorating.  The minute I walked into her busy, loving home, I was greeted by sweet little vignettes of photo arrangements and quotes, all displayed in vintage frames.  Her husband is quite good at it too, as I learned he made their platform bed out of reclaimed wood and had a pair of old high wingback chairs reupholstered in linen.  Each boy’s bedroom boasted an antique bed, beautiful drapery, and lovely yet subtle findings perfectly suited for a child’s room.

I got right to work setting up my strobe in the master bedroom as I could immediately tell there wasn’t going to be enough available light to shoot film at the correct exposure.  Nicole’s two older boys were quite curious about the whole set-up which gave me a good chance to get to know them better.  They had a blast helping me ‘test’ out the lights by jumping on the bed – ha!

Baby Lucas was going through a growth spurt that day, I think, as he had a one track mind for feeding.  We ended up shooting on and off between feedings, diaper changes, and other breaks for about three hours!  I think we were all exhausted at the end but it was well worth it.

Congratulations Nicole and family!  Thank you so much for spending a morning with me in your home.

Hello!
What film did you use?

Hey Valerie! Thanks for your comment! I photographed this entire session with my Contax 645 and Fuji 400h film. It was developed and scanned at Richard Photo lab. Let me know if you have any other questions!
