This sweet guy was born on Mardi Gras day,  How fun is that? I wonder how many times a king cake will serve as his birthday cake over his life time lol.  This was probably one of my favorite sessions in a while.  Mostly because…well….that hair….enough said, right?!  I was soooo excited when Jasmine got out of the car with her beautiful baby boy.  Not only was he gorgeous, but his momma loved the neutral set ups I chose for him so we went with an all neutral session.  And the cherry on the cake….she wanted all props! Seriously, my favorite type of session.  At 17 days old, this little man was a rockstar and slept like a 5 day old.

Every photo is my favorite photo from his session.  I literally had to close my eyes and pick one for a cover photo because I loved them all.

It was hard covering up his amazing hair with a bonnet.  But it wasn’t just any bonnet….it was one of my favorite little bear bonnets and he looked so so sweet wearing it.
