My nephew Seth is a month old and I’m still editing his newborn session. In my defense, I’ve never shot a newborn session that lasted 3 days before, and this kid is not exactly a paying customer! :)
My sister Lisa and my mom gave me this white wooden moon prop for Christmas a few years ago. I saved it for years because I wanted to use it first with Lisa's baby. It was so special to me to be able to finally use it with my beautiful nephew.
There was another prop I used for this session that had so much sentimental value. Our Aunt Cathy passed away last year a few months before Lisa became pregnant. Before she died, she was so helpful to Lisa when she was suffering through having miscarriages, because she had had them herself when she was trying to get pregnant. Her daughter Marissa, our amazing cousin, gave Lisa this beautiful blanket for Seth. It was made with pieces of fabric from our Aunt Cathy's clothes. I can't express how meaningful it was to take his photos on this blanket.
Seeing Seth every day reminds me how important it is to get newborn photos taken. He changes from day to day. He already feels different in my arms from the tiny little peanut my sister brought home. They’re only so small for such a short while. This time is really precious and really fleeting.
Here are the rest of the second round of Seth's newborn session!
