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.
