Ponchatoula LA Newborn Photographer {James Day 8}

I have been counting down the days to meet this little guy since Brandie informed me she was expecting again last year.  They made the trip form Ponchatoula LA to see me for Jame’s newborn session.  I’ve had the honor of watching this little family grow in front of my camera over the past two years.   Luke came to me for his newborn session 2 years ago.   Our last session was one of my absolute favorites in the wildflowers of New Orleans City Park last spring.  Here we are 2 years later and Luke is a big brother!  And the sweetest big brother at that.  While these boys have lots of very similar features, I believe sweet James favors his beautiful Momma.  What do you think?

He made the sweetest little faces! He was so calm the whole session.  Not a peep from him the entire time!

I know some of his momma’s favorite shots from Luke’s newborn session were the macro shots so I had to make sure to get some of James.  I think here he resembles Luke and his Dad.

He was a perfect little angel on the bean bag and looked so pretty on this light minty blue.

I have to say, Luke is  one of the sweetest siblings I’ve ever gotten to photograph.  He was so gentle with James and just wanted to kiss him.

I have to say, James was born into the sweetest little family.  It is evident how much he is loved and adored already.

This is such a special family.  I am forever grateful for the opportunity to document such special times in their lives.
