Every time I book a newborn session, I get excited. Every baby I’ve ever photographed has been so unique and special. I look forward especially when it’s a first baby, because I know these photos are going to mean so so much to new parents. I could tell Cole’s parents were so happy to welcome their little boy into the world. They brought such cute outfits for their little guy to wear, including a blue moon knit set that’s become one of my favorite outfits a client has ever brought in. It worked so perfectly with my white wooden moon prop! They also brought a very special prop from home with them, a bunny rabbit stuffed animal that had been Cole's dad's when he was a kid. I love when people bring in things with history, it means so much to get them in photos.
Cole did such a great job, tolerating a ton of outfit changes to make sure we got shots of all his cute duds! What I really loved about this session was that mom Tracy and dad Sean wanted to be involved. Oftentimes, new moms are not entirely comfortable with their postpartum bodies and they demur when it comes to being included in photographs. I’m a big believer that every body is beautiful and deserves to be celebrated and photographed, especially when it’s just done the amazing work of creating a new life. I hope Tracy will cherish these photos of her and her baby boy for a very long time.
Here are some of my favorite photos from our session!
