And the winner is: Dean! Well, actually, Dean’s mommy. She won one of a few prizes I donated to the lifamilies.com Bridal Luncheon this year. When I donated a complimentary newborn session – I had no idea it would go to someone already expecting – so I put an expiration date of 2011 on the gift certificate. I was absolutely thrilled to find out it went to someone already expecting and very deserving. J & V, you are a lovely couple and now a beautiful new little family – congratulations again!
Love his name. Loved his chubbiness even more! And his mom was tiny – you should’ve seen her! They are such an adorable family and I loved hanging out with them while I captured their gorgeous new little boy.
The umbilical cord stump. It’s the newborn tag…. Like when you go to the store and buy something new, you bring it home and it has the tags on it. I see the umbilical cord stump on an 8 day old baby and I think… wow… brand new… and there’s the proof. There it is… a life… new, with tags. =)
A clean, fresh process (my usual) paired with a black backdrop makes for a timeless image:
Look at those cheeks!
So comfy and cozy…
A happy, sleepy newborn is always a goal for me at a newborn session but I love capturing a happy, calm, awake newborn… especially one with eyes like this – priceless!
My jaw dropped when I opened the email that said “well, my son came about 5 weeks early…” I’ve gotten my fair share of early newborns but 5 weeks definitely wins the prize for earliest. Baby C was a healthy 6lbs 4 oz at birth and as strong as any full term baby. But he was putty in my hands, so cooperative, and a complete pleasure to photograph. Congratulations R & T on your beautiful baby boy!
My husband and I went on a quick weekend getaway a couple of months ago to New Hope, PA. We stayed at this excellent B&B and I picked up this vintage cranberry crate while exploring the local antique shops… it’s a new favorite for sure and Baby C was so awesome to let me try it for the first time. It’s now my new gallery wrapped canvas sample (photo of that coming soon!)
He was also really good in my twiggy basket…
