Little Joel was an absolute dream baby for me. He slept, well, like a baby, and I have never seen more perfect skin on a newborn. I'm loving how my new wood backdrop is working with these recent sessions (thanks so much to my husband for building it for me!) and how I'm able to incorporate more props now. Mom wanted images with some color to them to pop from her neutral-colored walls, and I thought it was great that she was thinking about her decor when planning this session. That's an important thing to do and often overlooked. Still, of course, I'm always drawn to my neutrals and had to incorporate some of those as well. I love the simplicity of them and how it allows baby to really be the star of the image. And, somehow, almost every image converted absolutely beautifully to black and white. I seriously cannot get enough of this newborn session.
They were so good about giving me smiling faces, I had to get some funny ones from them too! I think this was the first shot we took - these boys were seriously rock stars with this session.
We seriously got this one on the first shot. No face swaps. Little guy had to have my son's spider-man figure but I think it's a cute addition!
It was a pleasure to meet this family and, as always, a privilege to capture these memories for them. Thanks so much guys!
