I seriously have the best job in the world being a Quad Cities Newborn Photographer! Check out this sweet little newborn baby boy! Just 10 days old and perfect in every way! We originally scheduled his session for when he was 9 days old, but he really didn’t want to sleep. We got some adorable awake shots, but in order to get those curly poses of him resting peacefully, we needed him to nap for awhile and he was way too curious at what was going on for any sleep to happen. We rescheduled for next day, and he slept like a champ for a full two hours for me to get his session wrapped up. He was SOOOO good! I think I could have snuggled him all day!
The most important part of a newborn session in my opinion, is capturing those ever changing details! Their tiny toes, sweet little nose, puckering lips, and fine baby hair is something that only lasts for such a short moment in time. I love to photograph all those tiny details so parents can reminisce for years to come.
This little guy has two big sisters that are so cute! They were over the moon with their baby brother and did such a great job at being so careful with him so we could capture the three of them together.
It’s hard to believe, but next weekend I’ll be photographing his sitting stage session. He’s part of my Grow With Me Premium Package, so I’ve had the extreme pleasure of photographing the maternity pictures, his newborn, coming up his sitting stage, and then his one year. I love, love, love watching these kiddos grow up and hit all these amazing milestones! Stay tuned for his next session to be on the blog.
