I loved working with this family to photograph their maternity images and their newborn portraits! They were so much fun at the maternity session, so I knew that the newborn session would be a blast – and I was right. I enjoyed hearing her stories of labor and getting to meet and photograph this cute little guy, Cameron. He was only 9 days old when he came for his newborn session. As soon as I met him, I fell in love with his LONG eyelashes – just like his older brother! During the session, they were extremely patient with me – allowing me to spend over 3 hours to get all the shots that I wanted. Cameron’s daddy requested some detailed shots, and I enjoyed capturing those little toes, feet, hands, etc. from different angles. But of course, Cameron drove the session, meaning that his needs came first. We took as many breaks for nursing and diaper changes as he needed. I usually don’t schedule more than one newborn session per day so that we have plenty of time and that we won’t need to rush. With newborns… patience is the key! I just love all of the joy that we captured and had a really difficult time narrowing down the images to post here! It was nice seeing them happily pregnant and then seeing the new baby in their arms! I look forward to seeing Cameron grow up with his older brother!
If you are expecting and interested in having your newborn portraits taken, be sure to contact me before your due date. Babies grow incredibly fast especially in the first few weeks of life. I would love to capture the first newborn portraits that will have an extra special place in the hearts of your family for a lifetime.
