Adorable baby R was approaching 3 weeks old at the time of our session. Like most babies at this age, he started our time together wide awake and wanting to eat, eat, and eat a little more! Newborns always call the shots at our sessions so we went with the flow, feeding and cuddling and taking some beautiful family portraits. I love the portrait of him in the nest with the beautiful hand-knit cocoon that mom and dad brought along to the session. R had the most amazing eye contact and I think you’ll agree he is quite handsome whether awake or asleep! Finally, after all of that play time, baby R settled in to sleep in my arms. It’s always the best part of the job to snuggle a sweet baby until they fall asleep. Lately, I’ve even had a little shelf to hold them on with my growing bump! Once R was asleep we created portraits with all of the classic sleepy poses, and R looked just as sweet dreaming away as he did playfully alert. Enjoy your sneak peek, we can’t wait to show you the rest!
