I’m still trying to catch up on blogging! Today I have a Newborn Baby Session to share with the cutest little guy, Lucas! Not long ago I photographed his parents for their Maternity Session in the freezing cold. They were absolutely awesome during that session regardless of the 20 something temps. We had an awesome session resulting in beautiful images and they later decided they would like to have their baby photographed when he arrived as well.
Lucas arrived a little early and surprised his mom and dad. He came to the studio when he was 16 days old and did an amazing job during his session. His parents shared with me some of the poses they like from my website, and images that they were most drawn to. This is always helpful in ensuring that I capture the images families love the most. When Lucas arrived he was quite sleepy which is exactly what we hope for. Since he was so sleepy I got straight to work, and focused on capturing the images that are best done while the baby is sleeping, when they are able to be guided into squishy poses. This gives me the opportunity to later photograph their baby awake in other adorable setups. They were hoping he would be awake for some images and luckily he did wake up for a bit half way through the session, and he gave me some of the best eye contact I have ever seen.
Look at him, looking right at me!
My favorite photographer is Amy McDaniels and she recently did something a bit different with one of her newborns and I just absolutely loved it. I decided to incorporate the style into Lucas’ session. I love the relaxed and happy look on his face.
It’s always so hard to select images from these sessions to share. They are all so adorable and I try and narrow it down to only three or four! This next one is definitely on the top of my list. I love images that really just show a relaxed newborn baby with all their sweet little features. This one is just that! I love his little hands under his head, the sleepy dreamy little face, and those beautiful eyelashes.
