I. LOVE. NEWBORNS.
I really really really do. Sigh. So this little dude was as cute as they come. Bluest blue eyes. A little squirmy worm for the longest time and totally not wanting to sleep! But eventually he did finally conk out and was sooooo OUT that we were able to really have fun moving him around and holding him suspended and just basically goofing off around his little sleeping self. So much fun!
I believe this is the family I have had the most shoots with and it's gotten to where I pretty much just know exactly what their vision is and what they want from me. I don't even have to consult with them anymore about what their focus or priorities are as mom has a list ready for me when we get there and we are all good to go!
Big brother was not remotely interested in the process, which is pretty standard for a 2 year old! During a nursing break I tried to get some shots of him sitting in their stairwell... and sadly was quite unsuccessful. I believe I told mom when we came back down: "I think I have ONE. Maybe." Well, I was right, I only got one, but it's such a sweet image that I hope it makes up in quality what I was lacking in quantity for AJ! :)
We also tried a few times to go outside for some shots but kept getting rained out after a couple minutes. We did manage a few stellar outdoor shots but for the most part, everything we did was indoors using natural light only.
I love the wedding ring shots because we did very similar shots with AJ when he was a newborn where we put their wedding rings on his toes. This time we put them on Easton's fingers so we could have the same theme but with enough difference to honor their individuality. Just so cute! And the upside down heads up shots at the end are also a play on similar shots we did with AJ as a newborn. It's fun to start photographic traditions like that and I really enjoy being a part of the history and process. So thank you for letting me continue to chronicle all of you over the years!
