I loved shooting this beautiful new family earlier this month. There is nothing more raw, more innocent, and more precious than photographing a newborn baby. Having two older "babies" now, I love any excuse for mini snuggles. And, fun fact, Baby Luke has the same birthday as Leah! His mama and I were able to commiserate on the joys of spending Christmas in a hospital. Luke was such a content, sweet little love - despite the fact that he decided to nap as I was packing up my equipment for the day. It's okay… I love the bright-eyed wonder of an alert and curious little person.
Last weekend I had the honor of conducting baby Amy's first photo shoot. She was 10 days old and minus about six minutes, she was awake and alert the entire time. We started on mommy and daddy's bed and I took lots of detailed shots of Amy in her sweet dress and tights (I mean, who isn't a sucker for baby tights?) and later moved to the baby bean bag for some naked natural shots. She was such a good sport, and clearly destined for RHP modeling (and rocket science, of course).
