I was so excited to photograph this family. As a classic posed Baton Rouge newborn photographer, sometimes things don’t go as planned. This little guy was an older baby, but that didn’t stop me from doing a newborn session with him. The ideal age is between 7-14 days old, but things happen and sometimes the session happens later on. He was still a trooper and slept soundly all wrapped up. Older babies sometimes don’t sleep as deeply as brand new babies. This little guy woke up once I unwrapped him and decided he needed to check out what was going on for the rest of the session. And honestly, the unintentional photo I got with his mamas hands while we were trying to soothe him turned out to be one of my favorites.
I love when both parents want to be in the photos. The first photos with the newest addition to the family are so precious.
This mama really wanted her sister to join in on the photos. I love that she wanted to make sure to include her in the family photos.
This photo is certainly in my top favorites from this session. Look at those little fingers peeking out! So precious.
I wanted to make sure I got lots of wrapped photos since I didn’t know if he’d let me pose him outside of the wrap.
I broke out the bunny for this session. I don’t know what it is about a newborn clutching a stuffie that makes my heart melt.
Just look at those lashes! I know I’m jealous of them.
Presenting the unintentional photo that became one of my favorites. Mama was trying to soothe him and keep him from flailing his arms and I got this sweet image. I love that her hands are in the photo with him.
