I first heard from Kristen way back in March wanting to schedule a newborn session. Which is awesome because I could totally tell how excited she was about the upcoming arrival of her little one. And I am a planner so it’s nice to have some time to order things if needed. I am always excited to have a little boy in the studio because it seems that the majority of my tiny clients are girls! We had just had a cool front come through (meaning it is 80 degrees outside and not 95) but it had me excited for fall so I wanted to a fall-ish set up with him. I got this plaid throw on a trip to Scotland and wanted to incorporate it somehow. I thought it would be perfect. And it was!
Luke Day 10
My goodness, I couldn’t love it more! I may be partial to Luke because he has the EXACT little swirl in his hair that Harley did when she was born. I mean it is identical. Same little straight piece to the left of the swirl and all! And hers turned into the cutest little part in her hair. I adored it on her when she was a baby and I adore it on him!
I love how cozy he looked in these beautiful knits. As I photographer, we are so lucky these days to have incredible vendors from around the world.
And how about that little smile! He was just the cutest!
Luke was a looooong! His mom said he was 21 inches at birth and at 10 days old already grew to 23 inches. I had him all curled up nice and sweet and he kept stretching out. It was so funny.
I think my most requested set up is the cream bear bonnet potato sack pose. I can see why. Babies look so adorable dressed as little bears and Luke was no exception!
He was a newborn photographers dream. Not a peep the whole time. Even after I unwrapped him and went straight to the bean bag.
This blue worked perfectly with his beautiful dark hair and skin tone.
Last but not least, those sweet first family photos. Luke even gave a sweet little smile. I think he was pretty happy being in his momma’s arms.
Thankful for the opportunity to have met this sweet little family.
