Taking newborn photographs is an art form, and it is so much fun when the whole family desires to be involved. Capturing the magic of multiple generations is such an amazing part of my job.
I started this session capturing the all of the newborn baby’s handsomeness. He was well fed and curled up so cooperatively. I was able to capture the beautiful shine of his skin and all of his cute little wrinkles. You could see the start of his dark hair, still a little sparse on top, but if his parents are any indication, he is going to have gorgeous brown hair. I loved how he curled his hands under his chin, accenting his plump cheeks and perfect pink lips. I captured a variety of photos using white and tan backgrounds, and each color brought out a different aspect of his skin tone. In one of the pictures, he wore a cute little brown and white hat, which made him look so handsome.
One of the highlights of this photo session was the inclusion of a blue and white pillow. This special pillow had belonged to dad when he was a baby. Along with a matching crocheted blue blanket, it made for some very special and treasured pictures. We then moved on to family photos, starting with Mom and Dad. It was beautiful to see the smiles of joy and pride on their faces. We then later captured pictures including Grandma. I love generational pictures, and being able to take a multiple generations picture was such a special moment. I can’t wait to watch as this little man grows older and returns to his favorite DC Photographer for future milestone pictures!
