Lucky for me, some of my best friends are photographers!
About a week after Jedidiah was born, we headed over to my friend Traci’s house to do a newborn photo shoot. She’s got a huge house and lucky for her, she has a photo studio upstairs. We had brought a few changes of clothes and were hoping for the best!
Jedidiah wasn’t quite as cooperative as we might have hoped. He was WIDE awake, and even after nursing him, he wouldn’t go to sleep! This made it a little bit tricky to get the typical “cute” newborn shots. When they’re this little, their faces do all sorts of weird little things, so sleeping is preferred. It’s also much easier to pose them once they’re asleep. Anyways, little man did not want to sleep, so for the first part of the session, we did our best to work with what he was giving us.
We started him out in this cute little outift with a vest and tie… but, he ended up peeing through it.
So we changed him and let him be naked for a while for the next few photos. However, he peed again… all over everything. So then we kept him naked BUT with a diaper on. Then we did another wardrobe change (thankfully we brought a few outifts!). We also took some family shots- I absolutely love these ones.
Here is Traci (https://www.facebook.com/TcupDesign/?fref=ts) working her magic.
Below are some of my favorite photos that she took (it was hard to choose, I love them all)!
Thanks Traci! I love these photos!!!
I’d love to know, which ones do you like best?
