another sweet, sweet newborn session to share from earlier this week. little mr lane put up quite a fight to my ideas about curled-up, sleepy images… but i just happen to have more patience than a 2-week-old, so lane finally succumbed to his very full belly and sheer exhaustion of being awake for two whole hours :)
coming out of blogging hibernation here to post this ridiculously cute image of 10-day-old samuel. he arrived fast and furiously on his due date – so fast that his mama didn’t even make it to the hospital and instead delivered him in the front seat of the car on the side of the highway (paramedics got there in time to assist!)
i was so thrilled to be able to photograph baby samuel and his family while we were on vacation in san diego, his arrival and our trip couldn’t have been coordinated better if we’d tried.
this little girl was just pure perfection… flawless skin, plenty of hair, and just as sleepy as could be.
these sweet girls surprised their mama by arriving nearly two months early! i feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to capture their very early days at home.
i won’t lie. little miss braelyn just wanted to party. well, party like a one-week old can… by staying awake and making eye contact. despite being drunk on milk, she’d wake up after snoozing for about three minutes. but when she did sleep, she made the cutest, sweetest smiley faces. here are just a few from our session:
i was quite excited when i received an email (last night!) from stephanie telling me that her twin boys had arrived and they were ready for their first photo shoot. i arrived at their house this morning and spent a few hours with these sweet, gorgeous babies. i’m simply amazed with multiple babies (and especially the mamas who carry and deliver them.) these boys were so comfortable and content being squished and piled on top of each other and were just so fun and easy to photograph.
these boys are identical. so identical that their sleep-deprived new parents might have painted a someone’s toenail so they’d be able to keep the boys straight. (so, that’s vincent on the left and anthony on the right. i took notes.) :)
these are favorites of mine… at the end of our session, i had them sleeping face-to-face, their arms were tangled and they ended up holding hands (did i mention that i’m amazed with twins?) i love that these images feel so squished and womb-like.
sweet mister ryan is just six days new. the calmest, sleepiest baby i’ve met to date. he was a week and a half overdue and his family couldn’t be happier that he’s finally here.
look at those smiling eyes!
for ryan’s daddy:
sweet baby dj… i was able to photograph him on day one and day seven of his life. remember his mama’s maternity session with two friends?
i love these squished-up newborn shots:
he’s just perfect!
sweet baby cameron is just sixteen days old
big brother caden was sweet and exuberant and just so fun to jump around with and capture that energy!
