Ariel and I had a perfect plan for her newborn photos. My son's racing schedule takes up many of my weekends these days, but I had a free weekend that, based on her due date, seemed like it should be just perfect to do their brand new baby boy's newborn photo session. But then that little guy decided he was completely happy where he was and decided to stay just a little too long. You know what they say about the best laid plans...
By the next date that we found that worked for all of our schedules, that tiny little bundle of newborn goodness was close to 6 weeks old, significantly older than most of my newborns at the time of their session. While I hate I missed capturing those first days, I was very happy that Baby J was just a doll for his photo session and already had a big personality that came through in his photos.
This little guy had some gorgeous blue peepers! And check out that smile! He was so happy for almost the entire photo session. I could have photographed this cuteness all day long!
I love color and you'll notice that you rarely see black and white photos on my blog, even though I always provide them to my clients. But something about these photos just seemed to call for the drama that black and white brings to the table. I feel like the emotion is really apparent in these photos.
Did I mention that dad is a super handsome fireman? No? Oh, let me rectify that! Ace donned his fire gear for a shot that turned out to be one of my favorite photos ever. Love!!
It was such a pleasure hanging out with this beautiful family! I can't wait to watch these two boys grow up together!
