I had been thinking about this shoot since we did the pre-baby photographs and I really wanted to do something special to incorporate the Wizard of Oz theme that they had. On Monday January 11th, 2016 I came prepared with a custom made Tin Man hat. I was determined to get a special shot for them and I like to think I succeeded.

The Day I Met Theodore James Downey…

Written by Steph

You all remember my previous post about Jen and Shawn who were expecting their first child? If you didn’t have a chance to catch their maternity shoot on the blog, take a second and check it out HERE (opens in a new tab).

As of December 20th at 12:38 AM Theodore James Downey entered the world weighing 7lbs 2oz; officially labeling Jen and Shawn as parents forevermore.  After spending a few weeks adjusting to life at home, I got the go ahead to set up his very first photo session, I’ll be honest; I absolutely couldn’t wait!

We tossed a few ideas around; hoping to recreate some must-have shots from our previous session and incorporate some new ideas geared more towards the new arrival. The session went off without a hitch, Theo was a superstar baby and could not be anymore adorable!

Theodore made an amazing debut as the Tin Man with these adorable wizard of Oz stuffies.
Baby Theo
Everyone looked great, even Ginge the cat made an appearance in the photos; whom I obviously have an immediate bond with because of our matching colours. 😉

Ginge loves baby Theo!

As always, Jen and Shawn were an absolute joy to work with and it was amazing to see their teamwork shine through as new parents. I said it before and I’ll say it again, they make an amazing team and Theo is very lucky to have them as parents!

To Shawn and Jen, thank you for inviting me to help document such a special time in your life. I really can’t wait to work with you again.

I’m gearing up for another newborn session this weekend, expect more adorable images to come your way soon! Until then…

Much love,
Steph
