My last session of 2010 was a great wrap up for the year. It was a long one – 4 hours! Somebody didn’t want to sleep, no matter how much mom told me he loved to! It couldn’t have been a nicer way to spend the morning though. Mom and Dad (and Grandma!) were a delight to hang out with. Most mom’s of a one week old are a bit frazzled, but Jennifer kept saying, “this is so much fun!” and was so relaxed that it made the whole experience a blast. That and she let me do just about anything I wanted!
I love when moms are like that. It lets me breathe a little bit and do some more artistic stuff. Sometimes these are just for me, but I think Jennifer will like this too. She’s an interior designer and I can see this in her home in a second. I love this shot. It makes me sigh. That’s a good thing.
I love doing documentary style shots with newborns. Jennifer was trying to get him to sleep. He finally agreed!! These images look like they were from three different shoots – the light changed so much over the 4 hours that we switched rooms, moved around a lot. Resulted in some very different light and color, but I love them all!
Don’t let this shot fool you – he was up and wide awake about 15 seconds later!
Jennifer, thank you for a great morning and congratulations on your new arrival!
