I had so much fun shooting the newborn photos for this beautiful baseball loving family. As a lifelong St. Louis Cardinals fan, I had to put aside my own personal feelings about our division rivals. You see, this family’s heart belongs with the Chicago Cubs. They even named this little guy after Ryne Sandberg.
This little cutie was a joy to work with, so sweet and easygoing. Mom and Dad requested some special newborn poses in Dad’s mitt and with his autographed ball from Wrigley Field. Since I typically do not work with props, I will admit to consulting Pinterest for some "go to" mitt and ball poses! I wondered if baby would fuss when I placed him on a rough baseball glove but he did not even bat an eye. He was so easy peasy! I think he felt perfectly at home with that glove.
Congrats little Ryne on the Cubbie’s big win! I guess it took you to come into this world to defeat the goat! Here are some of my favorite’s from this Huntersville newborn session.
