I had so much fun photographing this sweet little one!
He came all the way to Las Cruces from Alamogordo for his newborn photos. Even after sleeping in the car seat on the drive, he did amazing!
He was seriously the cuddliest and best sleeper. I hope that is still the case and this new family has adjusted to a life as 3 : )
Those itty bitty pants.....
If you book your newborn photos with me, while you are still pregnant, AND already have your name for baby I try my best to get a personalized hat for your session. I just love giving the family a little gift and also adding some personalization to your photos. How cute would this shot be on birth announcements?!
My talented friend from Baby Bug By Jianna creates these for me. Look her up if you need any custom boutique items! She is seriously amazing... and shopping local is the way to go!
Mom and Dad brought the glove it to further personalize their photos. In fact, this was the ONE shot they had to have. I think it turned out darling!!
A ton of my session includes intricate poses. Its an art ive mastered and come to love. BUT I also love capturing baby sort of as is.
After the main posing. I wrap baby and get some natural shots. I let little them wiggle and and get comfy then shoot away. Let him cross his feet, curl his hands up, and pose himself pretty much. Every session, Mom and Dad have loved these, and made comments like: awwww his hands were always like that on the ultrasound! He loves kicking his feet up like that, I always felt that when he was inside, or I love how close you shot.. I can see his dimples. They are just like his Dads.
Its important for me to capture these memories... they are fleeting!!
I love using my macro lens for a portion of these as well for those sweet little details. Eyelashes, lips, wrinkling and peeling skin and of course my favorite the tiny tiny toes and feet.
These three rocked their family portion. Moms makeup was ON POINT, and made editing a breeze!!! Dad loved to snuggle baby annnd wasn't Grandma the cutest?!?
Thank you to this sweet family for traveling over for you session, and trusting me with your sweet sweet baby!!!
