Pumpkin Newborn Session

Fall and babies! This one is my own baby, so whether he likes it or not, he will now be my photography model. I bought some mini pumpkins with visions that he would hold it or lean against one but he thought them strange and cold. So here he is, dreaming among them.

My oldest two love their baby brother so much, it’s all I can do to keep them from smashing him. As they were holding him, he made bubbly butt music, which of course elicited the best smiles.

Don’t grow up too fast, little one.

Fanaaj: Newborn Session

The first time I handled a newborn session, I was hesitant to touch or position the baby. Even after handling two babies of my own, other people’s babies seem so fragile, they could break. This session was so great for me, because the mother – and my good friend – trusted me completely and gave me full creative control. I did a lot of rocking and soothing and swaddling (quite messily I might add), but it all paid off in the end because this newborn’s perfection was able to shine through.

My friend has a bright loft in her house that was perfect for a quick family portrait.
