I’m an Auntie again :) I might be a wee bit biased, but this little guy is simply adorable!
Welcome to the world Cullen! I traveled up to New Hampshire to visit him in the hospital the day he was born, and a week later I was able to capture these sweet sleeping images of him at home- though the little guy did make me work for it!
We started out the session with all three brothers- Connor and Gavin were so good with him – making sure to support his head and being gentle. I absolutely love the second image and Connor’s devilish grin ;) The older boys were soon on their way to a playdate, and the newborn photo shoot with Cullen began. If you are planning a newborn session and have other children as well, I suggest starting with the sibling shots and then having someone available to watch the older children in another part of the house or sending them to a friends- the quiet is a nice respite and we can focus on your new little one.
If you follow me on Facebook you may have already seen some of these images because I could not wait to share! Here are a few of my favorite images from Cullen’s newborn session….
The three brothers together – look at that laughter – makes my heart melt!
Sweet sleeping newborn Cullen at 8 days old
His nursery has an animal theme and I borrowed a giraffe stuffed animal from his crib- and they were the same size- aww! Props are a great way to show how truly tiny your baby is in those first few days – although I bring lots of hats, wraps and baskets to my sessions, I love including items that are special or unique to your family to truly personalize your new baby’s images.
I love this one snuggled into Dad’s arms. Rick and Monti wanted to focus on the baby, but I love including parents during infant shoots – even if it is just your hands :) Another way to document how truly tiny those little fingers and toes are!
Thanks for letting me brag on my newest nephew- he is so loved! I saw him this weekend and already he is double the size he was when I shot these- each day brings so many changes and I’m so glad we have these images to remember how tiny he once was!
