I met this sweet newborn at his home for the newborn session. Christiaan is a part of the AGP baby plan so we will get to watch him grow at 4, 8, and 12 months, yay! He has got some personality as you can see by even the first image below. What a cutie. Christiaan stayed awake for most of his session which is unusual for his age. Sometimes I think babies can just sense something different is going on, the excitement! I can’t tell you how many times parents have said “wow, he never stays awake this long” or “wow he is really wanting to eat a lot!” I schedule at least 2 hours for newborns because I have to assume this might the case. Don’t be afraid to feed your baby more than usual if they seem to need it on photo day because it keeps them content and happy for their photos! And is there really a “usual” at this point? Nope, at this stage of life you are lucky to stick to one routine for a week at a time; it just constantly evolves!
p.s. I’m shooting another awesome wedding tomorrow (this makes 4 GORGEOUS WEDDINGS to get up here on the blog for you to see!) Up next here though is Andrea and Ned’s engagement, baby Alex 4mths and then I’ll get into some weddings, family and high school seniors! It’s a busy time and why not with this awesome weather! If you’re thinking about a family session or if you usually wait until fall to get that done in time for holiday gifts and cards why not consider doing it in the spring!? The fall has so many windy days and I can only book so many sessions in October before the holiday cut off in early November! May is open for bookings… get it done before it gets hot!
on to cute-cuddle-ness
I think this is my favorite. Makes me want to pick him up and hold him, little nature boy…
