April 23, 2012 in babies, families

Maybe you’ve heard (you know on the blog, on my personal Facebook, on my business Facebook, on Twitter) that there is a new man in my life. He is sweet and gorgeous and most impressively, did not pee or poop on any of my blankets. After photographing Joseph’s entrance into the world (have I mentioned it was amazing?), I got the pleasure of seeing him again a week-ish later to get my snuggle on take his newborn photos. It was an adventure! I didn’t mention it in his birth story but this little pea does NOT like to be on his back…or his stomach. At the hospital, the director of nursing was taking his vitals and he just kept rolling from one side to another. When Dad asked if it was normal, she said she had never seen it before.  At his newborn session it was quite apparent that he still preferred his side to any other position and let me know he was not happy as soon as I tried any way else.  Lucky for him (and mom and dad! ) I used some of my tricks and managed to get him comfy for enough time to snap a few shots of him on his back and tummy. Newborn sessions can last 3 (or more hours) and I always take the lead from the baby. If babe needs to be fed, babe gets fed. If babe is tired of being swaddled, we unswaddle. Alternately, if babe is sick of being in the buff, we cover and swaddle. Babe’s needs comes first.

Now, enjoy some baby goodness! And, why yes, that is a rooster on the deck checking in on baby..

    Oh wow! These are so cute! LOVE that one on the orange and blue blanket. Especially paired with that orange color block to the left of it. I can imagine something like that in his nursery. Great job!!
