When this dad reached out to me to inquire about my newborn sessions, his questioning made me ask if he was also a photographer. He was a hobbyist (you always get a little nervous shooting for another photographer!) and wonderful to work with. Normally I work with the moms for my newborn sessions but she let him take the reins on this one. My first time talking to her was at the session (and she was the sweetest!).
It’s funny, when I first entered their home, I had just come from my incredibly loud and chaotic house and the first thing I thought was, “Wow, it is so quiet in here!” The home had a great vibe, with a clean style, natural light galore, and beautiful plants all around. My wannabe plant-lady self was very into it. The baby boy was tiny— under 5 pounds at birth— but healthy and was able to come home right away. He was perfect during the session; he fell asleep easily and deeply right away so it seemed like we just flew through. As mom and dad said, “He’s such a showoff.” Maybe he was, but it worked for me!!
I loved meeting and working with this family. I know mom and dad are going to be the best parents. And that little guy is cuuuuute. I mean, can you even handle that face? And those lips?! He even gave us a few smiles during the session. It was a wonderful morning!
