I love it when a client gives me an idea of her vision and we can run with it. Props. Recreating moments. A series of moments. However, my number-one-will-always-be-my-favorite newborn shot is the one of the birthday suit on a white blanket. What a perfect image to post the day before we start a brand new year. So squishy and sweet and only this little for this day. This little Christmas elf wasn’t supposed to be born until 2018. Little did everyone know, he wanted to have his first Christmas this year. He needed a little extra love in the hospital because he came so early, but he was home just in time for his first Christmas with all of the many people who love him. For his shoot, since he didn’t complain, mom and I posed him in a stocking, with milk and cookies, in front of the tree…all the good stuff. He is a Christmas baby after all. The very coolest part about him coming early (besides being the best Christmas present ever) is that he came on mom and dad’s anniversary. What a wonderful reminder that he’ll have every year–that he came from love. And this little sneaky smile? Loooove. I am pretty sure he’s going to be the coolest kid ever.
One of my faves:
Little peanut and family, thank you for a fun and relaxing shoot. I hope you love these and had the best Christmas day together snuggled in front of the fire and loving your new family.
I can’t wait to show you the rest, and I hope you have the best New Year’s Eve and an exciting 2018!
