This little man came to my studio for his newborn session on Thursday morning. Normally I recommend getting newborns in to see me before they are 10 days old because they are still really sleepy the younger they are. Preemies have a little wiggle room for that so I tend to go by their corrected age. Well this cutie was well with in that time frame and came in to see me well before his due date which was September 29th! He was so healthy and STRONG already! At only 6lbs his strength when he would try to hold up his head or wiggle around while I tried to pose him was incredible for any newborn, let alone a premature one! His mom and dad were so calm and at ease with their new bundle I just new our session would be easy, and I was right. He barely made a peep the whole time and was happy to just sleep while I moved him around for his photos with the occasional feed from mom. I can’t really say there are many days where I don’t love my job but this sweetheart just made me REALLY love my job on Thursday morning, what could be better than snuggling with a tiny little newborn right?
I got at least two ADORABLE smiles out of him too!
I just love the father and son shot…the strength of a dad’s arms holding such a delicate baby melts my heart every time!
