What a sweet little guy! I couldn't wait for this cutie pie to be born --- He was welcomed into the world by our dear friends, Shannon & Adam on April 24th. We did their maternity portraits back in March and I was tickled when Shannon called me to schedule his newborn portraits!
Posed and propped newborn portraits are extremely popular right now, but with him being one month old at this time of this photo shoot we opted to shoot more mature portraits of him. I love how natural they are. And I REALLY love the lifestyle portraits of Shannon holding him. I know she wasn't prepared to be in some of these shots, but they are the most touching and beautiful. As a mother of three, I remember how tough that first baby can be! But her natural ability to soothe him reminds me of how wonderful it is to be a new mother!
