The Boston Red Sox just gained a newborn Hawaii fan!!! I had the recent pleasure of photographing this sweetheart. He belongs to dear friends of ours and I wanted to do a special set-up for them. I was inspired by an image that the talented Patty Othon of Patty Othon Photography created, with her help and guidance I was able to re-create this beautiful set-up for their little Red Sox fan 🙂 Thank you Patty!!!
All newborn babes are different—some like to eat a lot, some are okay with just one feeding during our session together, some want to be up and involved in all the action of the day and others only care about sleeping and could care less about me. This little newborn babe—he wanted to be up and observing all of the action. He slept for a bit at the beginning of his session, long enough to do his sibling shot with his sister and his special baseball set-up. Then he woke up and would not go back to sleep—he looked around, talked to me and just relaxed in the warmth of my tiny studio. Since he decided he wanted to be up for most of his session, we decided that it would be best for him to return on another day 🙂 Upon his return, we began the solo portion of his newborn session. He again decided that he wanted to be up for all of the action…but after his second feeding, he finally gave in to sleep and allowed me to pose him. I worked as fast as could and kept the session simple. He didn’t really care for me to put anything on him anyways, so simple worked best 🙂 As challenging as his newborn session was, it was still a huge SUCCESS and I enjoyed every bit of it—newborn sessions are truly my passion and I could work with these little ones all day long 🙂 Through hard work, perseverance and patience we were able to create some of my favorite newborn images. When he slept, he rocked it out—fabulous job Reece!!!
A huge thank you to Bryce, Susan, Kailee and Reece for your patience and flexibility—it is greatly appreciated and I am so happy that we were able to capture these precious images of your sweet newborn babe. I look forward to watching your little man grow up in our crazy group of kids!!! Love you all to pieces and wishing your family an amazing, bountiful and prosperous 2015!!!
