Is there anything as sweet as newborns? I love their scrunch faces, their fuzzy hair, their sweet fingers…and I love photographing them when then are itty bitty like sweet Caelyn.
Caelyn made the perfect model. She was sleepy and oh so sweet! Often people ask me when is the best time to have professional pictures taken of their newborn and I always answer the same way: I love to photograph the brand-spanken-newness, the freshness and the smallness that infants have the first 2 weeks of their life. Something happens at about 2 weeks old…most of that goes away. My advice: if you want sweet newborn photos – let’s schedule something right away! You won’t be disappointed!!
One of my favorite things to create from a photo session is a composite like this one. I love the way composites allow us to tell a story of a brand new little life in a way that sometimes a single picture can’t do. I love the close up of the hair, the toes, the fingers…and I love that by sequencing photos from the session we get a glimpse of how Caeyln looked those first few days of her life.
I’ll end with this one of baby Caelyn and big sister Abby. There’s nothing like sibling love :).
