Say Hello to adorable little Jackson Drew!!! He was an absolute dream baby at his newborn session last week. I honestly don't think I have ever had a better time at a session; his Mom & Dad were absolutely lovely and so, so sweet and his Big Sis was adorable! I mean they're like every photographer's dream family; super nice and easy to talk to and photogenic to boot!
I absolutely love it when Mamas request neutrals for their newborn session, they're my favorite colors to photograph, and keep the images timeless. No matter what colors you have around your home now or in the future, these kinds of images will go beautifully all over your home. Neutral color palettes are also great because they're beautiful with any skin tone. Photographing a newborn on bright colors like pink can be an editing nightmare since newborns tend to have a lot of pink in their skin tone already.
Huge Congratulations to Mom, Dad & Big Sis!
Say Hello to the adorable Mr. S! He was such a cutie at his newborn session a couple weeks ago, and his parents couldn't have been nicer! I love getting to chat with Mom and Dad about labor/delivery, how things have gone since they've been home from the hospital, what they're thoughts are on becoming a parent. I especially love chatting with first time parents, who are experiencing all these amazing firsts with their new baby.
The thing is those first few weeks at home with your newborn are amazing but they're also the most sleep deprived time of your life, at least in my experience. Your beautiful little baby is only this small, and curly for such a tiny amount of time. Everyday that passes they become more and more acclimated to life outside the womb, and are more awake/alert. Capturing that brief moment when they're still 100% new/curly/sleepy is what a newborn portrait session is all about. Because the truth is, in a few months you'll be back to some sort of "normal" sleeping routine, and life will become a new kind of normal, and all those little details about how your new baby looked will be fuzzy, but a portrait will last.
