Every once in a while I have a mom reach out to me when her newborn is a little bit outside of that typical two-week timeframe. Sometimes their little ones have to spend extra time in the hospital to get healthy, or sometimes moms see how quickly their little one is growing and changing and they realize just how important it is to document and preserve their newness before it passes by. Other time, families live quite a distance away and they come as soon as they are able to travel.
That was the case with little Christopher.
It was a big weekend of firsts for this guy. First airplane ride. First time traveling. And first time at a photo shoot. Though you would never guess because he was such a natural! While photographing a six week old newborn session can be pretty challenging, it’s also pretty great. Not only are they more engaged with the camera, they often are smiling at this point, too and sometimes I’m able to catch some adorable little grins.
Sharing some favorites from Christopher’s session. Some awake, some asleep, and some smiley ones, too!
