This cute little guy's mommy and I had originally planned for a maternity session in Fort Mill, SC but this peanut had other plans. He was just too curious about what life would be like on the other side of the womb. He arrived several weeks early and was my tiniest newborn baby to photograph to date. So wee and precious…perfectly put together.
You’ll hear a lot of people say that the “bigger the baby the better they sleep”. Well I think little this sweet little guy might have to politely disagree. He was a perfect angel throughout our session, sleeping easily and letting me pose him this way and that, enjoying the cozy blankets and 80+ degree temperatures inside his Charlotte, NC home (for newborn sessions, it is best to crank up the heat while you’re shooting since they’re usually unclothed).
Only 5+ lbs on the day of our shoot and as sweet as he could possibly be. Photos are funny, I always feel like babies look bigger in photographs than they are in real life and was even saying this to his momma as we were shooting. I guess the old adage is right…the camera really does add 10 lbs.
Here are my favorites lifestyle and posed newborn photographs from my day with this beautiful Charlotte, NC family.
