Do you guys remember Chelsie & Shawn? Their maternity photography session turned out amazing. I was so happy when they decided to book a newborn session with me. I love when clients book more than one session with me, I take it as a huge compliment. Not only was I happy that they chose to trust me with their newborn baby boy, but our maternity session was a blast (nothing but laughter) so I was excited to see them again.
Baby boy Elias, oh what a stubborn little man you are. We actually had to rescheduled our session because the first time I got the chance to photograph him, he just would not fall asleep. He was so happy to see what was going on around him. Almost after 2 hours of trying every trick I know, I decided it would be best to reschedule.
So our second try turned out amazing. Although Elias was fighting sleep, once he was out, he stayed out. Mom assist me the whole time trying to get him to doze off. I remember every time I would move my hands to grab my camera, thinking he was asleep, he would jolt awake. Like I said oh what a stubborn little man. Besides struggling to get him to drift off to dream land, he was amazing. He was the cutest little thing to photograph. His faces he would make while sleeping were priceless. Below are some of Chelsie, Shawn, and I’s favorites from Elia’s newborn photography session.
