The newest little Callahan was such a sweetheart during our session- quietly gazing at windows, consenting to lots of changes in position, and enduring many kisses from his doting parents. He even let me set him up in a little faux-studio shot with some pumpkins, fall foliage, and a vintage wash basin- and fell asleep that way! Well done, little man! I will mention that it was just as sweet to see the love his parents have for each other and for him. I was encouraged as I finished up our shoot, and reminded of the freshness of life with a new baby. In those first days and weeks, everything is new and real and life-changing. What an honor for me to be part of it- even if only for a few hours!
As the final piece of the session, we trekked out to their local pumpkin patch and braved the cold wind for a few timely fall-themed photos. We even got in free to the corn maze! Their little guy was such a trooper throughout, and we finished our last photo just as the skies broke open and the rain started pelting down (of course, I took a picture even then...).
But enough of my blathering. You want to see these photos! Scroll down, take a look, and click on the photo if you want to see it larger. Enjoy!
|The classic baby-in-crib shot. A good place to start.|
|For a little comic relief...|
|His face just strikes me as so friendly. Like, what a personable little guy!|
|Oh, the kisses. So many kisses!|
|Little man being soothed by his Mama. Just a little bit of real life.|
|Baby toes! I can never pass up an opportunity to focus in on those.|
|Mom and Dad Callahan celebrated their first anniversary a few days after our shoot, so we included that wedding photo of them in the foreground for a little perspective of what their first year has brought!|
|You can't tell very much here, but the wind was whipping those corn stalks around like crazy! This must have been a brief moment of calm.|
|One of my favorites. Holding hands, holding their baby. So in love!|
|Standing in a field of pumpkins with a baby, laughing at a joke. Oh the funny things we photographers make people do!|

Adorable, am I right? Now you all want to get in line for lifestyle portrait sessions, right? ;)
Have a great weekend, folks, and stay tuned for more shoots coming up!
