Sneak Peek: Blake {NEWBORN}

I adore photographing newborns. I am and have always been a baby person, they are just so peaceful and squishy and cute. (I am pretty sure I say this after each newborn session I get to photograph…) Blake is the new arrival of my sister’s boyfriend’s best friend…and he is adorable! He made me work for each asleep shot I captured, but made up for it by being so stinkin’ wrinkly and sweet. He also LOVES his hands…he would shove a hand or two into his mouth, and make the cutest grunting noises. Thank you so much Ryan and Shelby for sharing your little man with me!



This is my favorite. Mr Blake was happiest during his session when he was held, being fed/had his binky in, and was wrapped up and warm. I love that in this one, his binky had finally come out and look at that wrinkly forehead!


These next two are my other favorties. How cute, and notice his little fist that has to be up near his mouth? Too cute.
