It’s a BOY!  If you recall, my last maternity session blog post featured Ashley and Brett who were anxiously awaiting, not only the birth of their baby, but also to find out the sex (they wanted to be surprised).  He missed sharing his birthday with his father by one day but Evan was born happy and healthy the weekend of July 4th!  Who doesn’t want fireworks on their birthday every year?!

At 9 days old, with a head full of hair, and already the spitting image of his mother, this little guy was ready for his newborn session!  As you would imagine he loves being warm and snuggled oh-so-close.  It was a gorgeous summer afternoon so I grabbed the camera and we headed outside to the screened-in porch.  The fresh, warm air kept Evan calm and soothed as we snapped away.

Don’t mind me as I geek out over film for a second but do you see the magic bokeh in the trees behind them?!

Ashley and Brett’s fur baby Sam just had to get in on some of the photo action.  Do you see him just over Brett’s shoulder?  And again with that magic bokeh!!

I love when my clients get the giggles in front of the camera.  Evan is sound asleep as his parents cut up with each other, providing me with genuine smiles and laughter to capture.
