If a seven-day-year old could talk to me, I imagine it would be something like this: “Hey, thanks for setting up this room with the warm heater and white noise, and since I’m full of milk and have just been changed, I’m going to sleep great! But hey, do you have to keep moving me???” Poor kids. Here they are, all brand new, and this stranger comes in and hassles them as soon as they start sleeping!
Harris was amazing though! We started the session by setting up his lovely room. Can you guess the theme?The theme is nursery rhymes! Isn’t that cute?
Once it was all warm and loud with white noise, he then drifted on and off from wakefullnes in his mommy’s arms while we did a few family portraits.
The doggie got involved too. Mommy mentioned loving his forehead freckle, so when I started in on detail shots, I made sure to get that!Dark backgrounds aren’t only for details. I love a baby in natural light on a dark blanket. It is very womb-like and ethereal. But I love to do these detail shots on a dark background. It just makes them really pop.
The whole family was photogenic, and mommy was obviously completely infatuated. I know the feeling. Daddy was a good sport, which is less common in men. Usually they are more reluctant. This daddy barely needed my help getting into a pose!Harris was named after his grandmother (last name), so we got a picture with her special ring, and then some with other family rings. Such cute baby feet! It was tricky though, he didn’t like me messing with his toes while snoozing. These were some of my favorites. His perfect skin in the sunlight of his room on that blue blanket is just beautiful.So cozy. Near the end I got out my signature creamy shag blanket. I just love the simplicity of cream on cream. Harris was amazing the whole time and didn’t fuss at all (even with me messing with his feet!). I think he is quite the handsome little man!
Thanks for this amazing opportunity Ashley and Tony. I loved meeting your beautiful familyI hope you love these sneak peeks!
