First off let me begin by telling you how much I love this little one's name, Eli.
Jaime got in contact with me soon after Eli was born to schedule a session, he and his family came to my home studio from Springfield NJ for his newborn session when he was 16 days old. He was such a sweet boy, I immediately fell in love with his blond hair, brows and lashes and oh those eyes. He has a big sister named Avery, Jaime was concerned she would not cooperate since toddlers can be very unpredictable but she was so sweet and fun and she lover her little brother so much.
We started off by photographing Eli and Avery first since she was in a good mood and we had fun playing and laughing while we were taking the photos. It didn't even feel like we were taking photos just having fun. And of course I had to add a few photos of her alone in the gallery. Isn't she gorgeous?
After we were done with Eli ans Avery's photos, he fell asleep for a bit and we took his photos. Dad is a fan of the Yankees and him and mom brought this adorable prop for him to be photographed with.
Mom also brought an item from his nursery which is themed with cute little whales. I thought it was such a cute addition to his gallery and something they will look back ans cherish. He was wide awake and showing his beautiful eyes.
Then I tucked him in and he absolutely loved it. He has beautiful baby features. I was also very happy that his parents and sister wanted to be included in a few of the shots. What a beautiful family!
No crazy props, just sweet, organic, baby photos. That's what I love the most about doing what I do!
