This was such a fantastic session! I instantly fell in love with Brayden, which of course, was so easy to do because LOOK AT HIM! But besides being the perfectly plump newborn, he also had the most mellow disposition. I was able to do so much with him! And after spending some time with his parents, it's easy to see why he has such a chill disposition. Mom and Dad could not be more relaxed and easy going. In fact, Robin is hands down the most relaxed first time mom I've ever met. Nothing fazed them and they just went with the flow and were totally comfortable leaving me and Brayden to do our thing! I love that! I was extra thrilled when I found out dad is a firefighter and wanted to get a shot of Brayden in his helmet as this is a shot I had wanted to do for a while now but never had a baby as cooperative as Brayden to make it happen. He was such a rockstar. As a side note, I want to make sure it is VERY clear that there were two hands on Brayden in that position AT ALL TIMES. Mom was holding him from behind and dad was holding the helmet from the side and was photoshopped/cropped out. Safety is paramount in newborn sessions and I don't want someone seeing these images and thinking you can just plop a baby in a helmet and snap away. I've seen some scary stuff out there on the web with regard to newborns and inexperienced photographers and I just really want to make a point here. Safety, comfort and common sense.... Brayden was an angel and totally cool with everything so we knew we could pull this off. Robin and Christopher, thanks for welcoming me into your home and allowing me to capture this special time in your family's journey. It was an absolute pleasure meeting you both and spending some quality time with the most mellow baby on the planet! My womb is still aching..... :)
ENJOY your sneak peek!
