St. Louis Newborn & Family Photographer

Newborn Mini Session | St. Louis Newborn Photographer

This little guy’s mama contacted me shortly after he was born, looking for newborn photos. But, they weren’t interested in the whole 3-4 hour setup that I usually do for newborns; they were just looking for a handful of images to capture their son’s tiny goodness while he was still brand new, and for something they could use for a birth announcement.

His mother asked me if I would do a mini session for him, and after a little bit of thought, I figured we’d give it a shot! I was really pleased with the way it went and turned out, so pleased in fact that Newborn Mini Sessions are now something I’m offering on a regular basis.

I block out about 45 minutes for the session (although it’s probably closer to an hour from the time I walk in to the time I walk out). That’s plenty of time for some fussing, some photos with the parents, a few diaper changes, and some photos of the baby alone. These are a great alternative for families who weren’t able to take or didn’t want the in-hospital photos.

Alright, without further ado, here are my favorites from little Adam’s session!

He had no intention of falling asleep for us.

Aww look at that little angry face! Am I the only one who thinks babies are just so cute when they cry?

I love the father son bond, and I love how it shows how tiny these newborns really are when their dads hold them in their arms.

He couldn’t keep his eyes off the window!

Still checking out the light – a photographer’s dream!

He was so calm when his dad held him and when I held him, but man he did not want his mom to JUST hold him!

I love this. So honest about how the first few weeks of motherhood really goes.

And then a couple with the eyes wide open here. The sleepy curly newborn poses are adorable, but man it’s so cute to see those big dark baby blues too.

And finally – the “wait, who are you again and why exactly am I here?!” face!
