Meet Caden Ezekiel! ~ Tacoma Newborn Photographer

A few months ago, I had the chance to meet brand-new Caden Ezekiel and his adoring Mom and Dad in their home for his newborn shoot.  Caden was sweet and calm when I arrived, and his parents were laid back, which is always so helpful with newborn sessions!  Like most new babies, Caden kept us on our toes with the constant need for -ahem- backdrop changes, which his parents and I got a lot of entertainment out of.  ;)  This is why I always pack the most stuff for newborn shoots!

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!
