I photographed this little guy with his mom, dad, and big sister at their home. Big sis was amazing! Two year olds can be a difficult age to work with but this little girl was a rock star and such a good listener. You could tell she was really excited to have a new baby in her family.
When we started the session it seemed like little baby boy was not going to settle or sleep but once he was swaddled he went right to sleep. While this is not always the case you as a new or soon to be parent can learn about why swaddling often works so well (along with other advice about soothing baby) by signing up for my Free New Parent Email Guide (link also in side bar --->).
Happy Lunar New Year! This little guy's mama really wanted to use Panda's as the inspiration for her son's newborn session. And oh boy it was so fun! I got a new white fuzzy knitted bear bonnet to go with my favorite fuzzy baby jammies and mama also had this cute little crocheted panda hat. Pandas FTW!
This little guy was my first baby to photograph in 2020! Happy New Year! He was pretty gassy (poor little guy!) and was therefore not super interested in sleeping but we still managed some beautiful photos.
Meet the smallest baby I have photographed this year; this little guy weighed only about five pounds! He was so tiny!! He was also not very interested in sleeping but I used all my tricks and still got to fill the gallery with 25 beautiful portraits (this was a petite newborn session). I also included one photo here on the blog that shows just how tiny (and wide awake!) he was during our session.
I met this little guy at his Sunnyvale home. His mom loves neutrals and simplicity so that's what we delivered to his final gallery. Little Ben had to spend some time in the NICU after he was born so we didn't meet until he was already a month old. Luckily he seems to be doing great now and his family is happy to have him home.
