Today I went all the way to Sacramento to meet this sweet family for their newborn session. Daddy is a wonderfully successful wedding photographer (http://brandtphotography.org/) and just had a brand new baby, so I had the honor of photographing their latest addition…baby #4! It’s always fun to see old friends and catch up, and what better way to do that than spend time with their family at their photography session, photographing a newborn. This little guy, really isn’t so little. He was their largest baby, weighing in at over 9 lbs! Large babies are so cute anyway…tons of sweet chubbiness to squish up and cuddle. <3
He is absolutely adored by his big brothers and sister!
We started out with him awake, and I love capturing babies with their eyes wide open to the world. It’s almost like you get a tiny glimpse into their soul. He has naturally full lips that curve up at the ends…almost like a smile every time you look at him. So sweet!
Sweet kisses from big sister!
…and love from brothers!
All of them together!
Love how they adore him! Part of shooting in people’s homes allows me to photograph them in the space where they live, reside, play, and love. Pictures that reflect normal, everyday life are more meaningful to me, and that’s what I love about these next few Just love to be able to have a family “be” together in front of my lens.
…and once all the big kids are done we can focus on just photographing the baby…let him fall into a deeeeep sleep that lets me mold him into whatever position he will allow. Little guy was just over 2 weeks old, but still slept like a champ and we have the sweetest pictures of him to show for it.
His chin!! So cute <3
Love sweet close ups and macros…
Thank you mommy and daddy for the fun morning spent together! Enjoy!
