I often get asked if I can photograph a baby in a costume or posed on, in, or around a basket or object. I certainly understand why. Those photos are adorable! However, it's just not my photographic style. There are many talented photographers who specialize in that type of newborn portraiture so I leave it to them. My personal style is more natural; classic and timeless, illustrating the beginning of this new chapter in a family's story. I love those moments between two new parents as they gaze at this tiny new human and describe to me their journey to this point. There is so much love and joy that it's almost tangible through photographs.
This family was no exception. Sweet little David was only a week old when I photographed his newborn session. This family had lunch on the grill and enjoyed a little rest while I photographed David by himself. There is no argument that he is a cutie-pie but my favorite photos are always the ones with the entire family.
Do you see it?! David has the CUTEST baby butt-chin!! This handsome little fella is going to look just like his daddy!
