Baby M is the second newborn I’ve had the honor of photographing for this INCREDIBLE family! When you get to photograph families year after year, they start to feel like family. They really did scare me though! When they came in and sat down they gave me a bit of a fair warning that their newest addition (that I was about to photograph) can be pretty challenging especially compared to their last baby. I felt the warning loud and clear. I started the session with a little nervousness awaiting for the big cranky baby to show up. I knew the first pose may show me this side of him if he decides to give me a dose since I always start with the froggy pose. Well…..the froggy pose went super fast and we even added ferns to go with his woodland nursery for another froggy look. Let’s just say, he was a complete angel. He was SO relaxed and comfortable that it made me laugh. Here I was bracing for the worst and yet he never cried, I think he woke up once to have a snack but that was it. He did get pretty darn angry when the session was over and he had to get dressed again to go into the car seat. I’m pretty sure all babies love being naked and who can blame them?! So I eventually got to hear his amazing cry but not during the photos thankfully. Visiting with his Mom and Dad during the session was amazing as we reminisced about our first session together.
The squish factor for this sweet baby boy was pretty darn irresistible! Photographing all his details including his back rolls and chunky little fingers was so fun. His Daddy is a real life hero so of coarse we needed to capture that as well. His woodland themed nursery gave us loads of inspiration for his session. Here are a few of our favorites although there’s a ton more!
