This session was from the end of this past summer- I was finally able to meet with Momma and show her the images. It actually made it pretty special, since baby is now 6 months old. She could hardly believe he was so tiny, not so long ago. This is exactly why newborn images are so important. In the haze of new mommyhood it is easy to forget just how small they start out in the world, and how quickly it passes. Especially in this little guy’s case, he was such a tiny little thing- born at just over 5 lbs, and 3 weeks early. I got to see him when he was just 2 weeks new, and just back to his birth weight. Little C holds the record for the tiniest newborn I’ve photographed to date.
It was such an honor to be able to capture the first moments of this little man’s life. His Momma and I use to work together way back when while I was pregnant with baby #2. We’ve been able to keep in touch over the last 3 years, and I was so happy to be able to capture this moment for her.
Can you guess which image we referred to as the “Blue Steel” look?
