A newborn session can be tricky. Sometimes the new bundle of joy isn't sleepy, or is in the middle of a growth spurt and wants to do nothing but eat, eat eat.
This one week old little munchkin fit this description perfectly. But truth be told, this is real life with a newborn baby. It's most definitely not all sleepy baby poses, placed in baskets and props.
And we're here to tell you that's ok.
We've tried that form of newborn session, and while they are ridiculously adorable, we actually prefer showing you the beauty in your real life. We want to capture the way you look at him through tired, but beaming eyes full of love. Or the way you as new parents, look at each other.
So even though he didn't give us much time as a sleepy baby, he did give us a chance to capture this family's love for him as they kept him cuddled close.
Congratulations Meghan and Ian on your beautiful baby boy!!
