The Coelrubi family are one of the sweetest new parents I’ve met – so full of love for each other and their little baby boy! Deborah opened up to me while we were on the phone for the first time about their hardships with Baby M’s first year with illness and colic. However, they were so happy to be able to say that Baby M has out-grown that phase of his baby-hood and they wanted to capture it with their first family portraits as a family. We met at Salt Creek Beach, and little Baby M just wanted to play – especially his favorite toy, a truck! Knowing babies, we brought some of our own toys to play with, including some folded paper boats we put together before the shoot. Baby M took one look and thought they were hats, and promptly put them on his Mom and Dad’s heads, making for some very beautiful family photos.
One of my favorite moments was when we were on the sand and little baby M just realized that his hands were full of grainy, icky sand and he was NOT happy! I quickly showed him how he could use MY jeans to wipe them off, which he gladly did. Too cute!
We are so happy to have the Coelrubi family part of the Pradhan Studios family, and we look forward to photographing them for years to come!
