Each newborn session is unique just as each baby and family are unique. I like to help tell the story of life as it is in that moment for each family. I hope that parents look back at the photos from our session together and remember the little details of such a busy time of adjustment and emotion.
This little guy was awake and alert for most of the session, he loved to be close, safe in his parents arms or snuggled against them. I loved how dad soothed him by lifting him up and shushing, the way his mom stroked his hair, how mom and dad looked at each other and laughed when the mom commented just how much her son and husband looked alike, and how dad gave in and put on the babywearing shirt - at the time, the foolproof way to calm their little boy.
