I was so excited when I received a message from this lovely mumma about wanting to book a small session… ‘I would like just a few photos of my son as a newborn’. I was excited for a couple of reasons; this mumma who isn’t really a fan of having her photograph taken still wanted to ‘record’ this time in her son’s life, to capture when he was so small and tiny and this would be my first newborn little boy!
This session was photographed on location in their home. I find it so much easier for new parents to be in their own space, they are more relaxed and have everything they could possibly need for baby. We talked about color palette options and the style of images ahead of time and chose a nice bright location of the house. Little Maddux wasn’t totally sleepy when I arrived, we tried to get him settle without being held but he had different plans. After a feeding he was ‘milk drunk’ and happy to settle in for his quick little session.
I am incredibly grateful that mum and dad were easily talked into a few images that included them… it was so wonderful to meet this ‘Little Man’. I look forward to a few family photos as he grows.
