This little handsome fella was born on July 27, 2013. A Saturday morning of a mostly rainy and overcast weekend. His mama (yours truly) said very early that morning that he was going to be earthside before 9:00 am, and he arrived at 8:59 am, on the dot. He was twelve days past his estimated due date (just like one of his older sisters, who was also born on the 27th day of her birth month), so mama was ready for him to do something that she anticipated!
These were taken when he was 20 days old, so while he is still most definitely a newborn, he was about a week past the ideal newborn photography period, which is under 14 days of age. It took me longer to woo him to sleep than it did to take these photos; all told, it was a four-hour adventure. I’m so very glad that I did it, though. I have always wanted to try my hand at newborn photography, and who better to practice on than my own wee one?
If you are interested in having your newborn photographed, please contact me as soon as possible. I will be offering newborn sessions at greatly reduced rates while I am still in the learning phase.
I hope you love these as much as I do. There are a lot of duplicate poses at different angles…please indulge me as I experiment with this fun new subject and art. =)
