Baby Reid was my first newborn of 2015! His mama and I were both in graduate school at ODU together. We weren't in the same program, but we had mutual friends and became friends ourselves! I was flattered when she contacted me on Christmas Eve about taking her precious baby boy's newborn pictures! It was definitely a wonderful present! I did a little dance, hugged my husband and giggled when he laughed at me...he does that a lot. I'm a wee bit goofy!
Baby Reid was simply perfect! He gave me great smiles, big yarns, cute puckered lips, long stretches and cute curly poses! Thank you for being my first newborn of 2015 and kicking this year off to a great start!
During your newborn session, I will rotate between various sets and take detail pictures like these.
The first set was a very neutral set which I always recommend because they are timeless and can match virtually everyone's home! I swap hats, change the wraps slightly and move around your little one while I take pictures. These are just some samples.
Reid wasn't a fan of the second set. He wasn't all about the diaper cover and bonnet, but he did give me a great full body stretch!! I love it!
Since that one wasn't his style, we put some adorable pants on him and he enjoyed that much more! Some babies like to be swaddled or clothed regardless of how warm it is and he was one of them. I always have a plan for each session, but that plan is adapted to each baby's preferences. Believe me, they let me know when they are happy or not feeling a pose. It's pretty amazing!
Those were all beanbag poses. I always try to do a couple basket pictures as well and Mom & Dad brought some great props for Reid, so we took advantage of them!
This basket set was a quick change over for a slightly different feel because after all, he was a Christmas baby!
Thank you for the yawns!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE capturing a good baby yawn!
Finally, we did a neutral basket setup! I love this little knit that he is snuggled in! These are great for naked baby pictures when the baby isn't a huge fan of being on the belly or they are awake.
Baby Reid, you are a handsome little fella and I thoroughly enjoyed photographing you, meeting your dad, grandparents and aunt, and catching up with your mom! I can't wait to watch you grow! You're a lucky little boy!!
