Remember this super-fun couple? Soon after their maternity shoot around Holland, I had the honor of capturing their precious, sleepy son in action. I’ve heard he didn’t stay sleepy for long, but he sure did a good job for me at his first-ever photo shoot! This adorable little guy was NOT one to be swaddled… but he WAS ready to jump into the great wide world outside, and was happiest when he could STRETCH out during his naps and put his hands on his ears!

I can never get over the tiny details of a sleepy newborn! His parents will treasure these memories for a lifetime.

This blanket backdrop and teddy bear were his mama’s when she was born, and I just happened to have a bear hat on hand. Joy is just a teddy bear (and sleepy, snuggly newborn) away!

Did I mention he likes to stretch as he sleeps? 😉

After a quick feeding and diaper change, we took some life-style pictures with mom and dad. Their room was a bit cooler (without the lovely heater beside us), so Baby B decided to wake up for this part of the shoot. But it didn’t seem to matter – awake or asleep, this guy was chillaxed and knew how to handle himself in front of a camera!

Welcome to the family, Baby B! Keep growing strong, and get some sleepy time in for mom and dad. Their lives will never be the same. 🙂

It was such a blessing to be able to capture this little guy in the first week of his life. By the time I met with his parents a couple of weeks later to share his shoot, he had already changed! It’s for this reason that I love to help preserve these moments professionally for parents to look back on and smile. The tiny features are so quickly lost in the midst of those first sleepless nights and long days… then suddenly he’s enjoying tummy time, smiling back at you, and showing his personality… and you realize it’s time for his 3-month shoot later this week!
