I am so very excited to share with you these adorable and precious images from baby Lawson’s first photoshoot! This shoot is so special to me for many reasons. But mainly, it’s amazing to see one of my early clients (and biggest supporters) grow their family and have a baby. Just three years earlier I shot their engagement session in nearly the same spot…. and now here I am in 2014 photographing their newborn. Wow! Oh life, you are crazy! What a tremendous joy to see Carolyn & Prescott so happy as new parents. What an honor to be asked to photograph this milestone.
I have never photographed a newborn before and had been pretty adamant about not wanting to… Why? Well, I am not a fan of overly & unnaturally posed baby photos… something about it freaks me out! So that aspect of newborn photography was never appealing to me. I was also terrified of shooting babies for fear I might break them or something while posing them (since I don’t have babies and am an only child I haven’t been around babies too much to realize how bendy and resilient they are)! I honestly thought I’d never photograph a newborn… But luckily Carolyn & Prescott insisted I’d be great at it and encouraged me to do this for them! How could I say no to one of my favorite couples of all time?!! Obviously, I did not say no and surprised myself by just how much fun I had!!! Babies are adorable, and photographing baby Lawson was easy peasy (maybe he is just a born model like his parents). And the photos? Well the photos are so tender and heart warming I cannot stop oohing and awwing over them.
So who knew? I like photographing babies! Thanks Baby Lawson, Mommy Carolyn and Daddy Prescott for believing in me and choosing me to capture this milestone. I am smitten with you three and what we created together. And even more so I am so proud of you and know you are already the most perfect little family! I cannot wait to document the rest of this momentous year for you!
