As you can see in the shots below, Caden was actually awake and alert for much of our shoot. Of course, this can depend on a lot of factors, but I always roll with it and use it as an opportunity to capture more shots of those soulful newborn-eyes. He really was a sweet little guy, and I am glad it came through in his portraits. Scroll down to see him for yourself!
|I love the way newborn boys look like little old men. It is SO adorable.|
|I can't resist the detail shots: brand new feet!|
|Newborn fingers are also particularly important to capture. They change so fast!|
|Just look at those wide-open eyes! He's drinking it all in...|
|I wish I knew what was going on in his head right then, but he sure seems like he's protesting something!|
|Holding hands with Mommy and Daddy!|
|That's one proud Daddy, right there!|
|Caden was so alert and present during our session. Here he is locking eyes with his Dad.|
Seeing this shoot again reminds me of how much I enjoy photographing newborns. Granted, it can be the most unpredictable kind of session, but what a privilege to meet (and photograph) a brand new human, and be invited into the home of a still-adjusting family. It's all such an honor. Here's to meeting some new humans in 2014!
