Within the home of a newborn baby, there is a unique stillness and warm feeling – new baby items strewn about, new parents vacillating between being awestruck and exhausted, and, of course, the ever-so-cute baby trying to figure out their new home. I love it – the newness of all of it. This little lovebug was just so cute and cooperative, especially for being 16 days old (ideal time to do a newborn shoot is within the first 10 days). And his parents were awesome, hanging in there when things got dicey, and rolling with the punches.
By far, this was my favorite hat of the session. I ADORE it. And if you know this little man, you know that it is very fitting given his name!
Can you guess what line of work his father does? I mean, the handcuffs aren’t quite functional, but still, the uniform makes you stop in your tracks, right?
Oh, hello, little eyes! Yes, you’re in a basket.
I love how in months to come, when baby M grows and grows, mom and dad can look back at this image and see just how tiny he was. The relative size of dad’s hands to his head will seem unreal.
Tom and Katie, thanks so much for a sweet little shoot. Wishing you all the best in this new chapter of your lives. Baby M is a lucky little bug.To view the complete gallery, click here (password protected; please contact the family or me if interested).
