This little guy was just 4 days old! The perfect age for newborn photography.
I loved the cheesecloths wraps I had recently purchased; perfect for covering up his *ahem* boy parts. I got the wraps from an awesome Etsy shop MyArtisticCreations. She seemed to have the best prices and a great selection and I will definitely be getting some more from her.
Newborn photoshoots are not a fast process, this one was a little over two hours.
But the extra time, the patience.. all so worth it to get some adorable shots.
Oh and you also have to be prepared for surprises.
This first time dad was amazing and took it like a pro when his little guy did his business on him (both kinds)
I am not actually even done editing the pictures from this session (lots of great mama ones too); I just had a craptastic day yesterday and so wanted to share something beautiful that makes me smile.
If you live in Southern California and are about to have a baby or know someone who is send them my way as I would love to photograph their new baby!
Would anyone be interested in some tips and hints for newborn pictures? If there is any interest I can write up some tutorial posts.
