Meet my newest nephew, Ryan! He's such a little sweetie and does a great old-man impression when he wrinkles up his tee tiny forehead. <3! I went to visit him when he was just five days old, but he wasn't so excited about "posing" for "newborn photos." Mostly it seemed like he wanted to put his clothes back on and leave the soft blanket on the floor to doggie brother Charlie (who loved it). So that was understandable. We just went with the flow, and I was able to capture some genuine moments with the new family at home. Even better.
Let's call this my first blog post.
I started a blog for an internship in 2009 but I was quickly discouraged from posting anything, lest I disclose proprietary information... I wouldn't have (of course!) but shutting the site down was easier than jumping through the hoops I would have needed to keep it. (My bosses totally liked the blog's design, though, so that cut down on my embarassment at the ill-fated thing.)
So when deciding what to start with here, I'm faced with tons of possibilities and all my recent shoots that are calling to be shared. Starting with my most recent shoot makes the most sense to me today, so that's what I'm doing! Aaaand I can't get over these adorable newborn cheeks, so this way I get to look at her photos for a little longer.
Leah Mae was barely four days old when I had the honor of meeting her! The latest edition to a family I've photographed before, she was as beautiful as I expected. Her momma expected her to be a little more cooperative, since she was so tiny, but I still give her a solid B+ for newborn behavior.
