What a treat it was to photograph this sweet 10 day old baby boy. His big "brother" Gunner greeted me at the door and stayed by my side through most of the session. I think he wanted to keep an eye on this strange lady who was photographing his little brother. Ethan was definitely used to having him around as he never startled when Gunner would bark. Me, on the other hand, jumped every time. :-)
We started our session with some family photos by the window. Gunner did a great job striking a pose for the camera. Ethan took a small break to fill his belly and then we continued with some more snuggle shots. Ethan was ready to snooze with his little belly full. A nice warm house and a full belly were a perfect combination for a peaceful newborn portrait session.
He snuggled right on in the bean bag like it was a big comfy recliner on a rainy day. I switched hats, posed hands, played with his feet without even a flinch from him. Gunner even snuck in a few snifs and kisses. He was out and let me pose him without any resistance. I love when babies are this relaxed. It makes for such peaceful photographs that will forever be treasured memories. Mama also got to enjoy her complimentary 60 minute massage that came with her newborn session.
