We knew Jessica was going to have a baby around the end of May or early June so when she called to let us know that Hudson had arrived we were very excited. We did the wedding of Jessica and Justin so she was happy to use the gift certificate we gave them. This is a great way for us to keep in touch with our couples and we enjoy watching the families grow. Jessica had a few things in mind for the newborn session so when we arrived we went straight to the nursery to start planning. We are very flexible because even with a plan sometimes newborns change our plan by not wanting to be in a particular pose or they need to have an eating break. Hudson was eating when we arrived so it worked out perfectly because he was sleepy while we worked. He was 10 days old which is perfect timing for newborn photos. Once they get older it’s a bit harder to transition from one thing to the next. This session was a breeze because he let us do anything. We easily moved from the ideas Jessica had to some of the ideas we brought with us. It was fun for us to incorporate personal items into the session. When parents give us free access to the nursery, clothing and blankets our creativity runs wild! After catching up with Jessica about how they have been since the wedding, how many people have come to visit Hudson and just talking about baby stuff the time flew by and we realized Hudson has slept the whole session. Amazing baby! Saving some naked baby for last since most babies don’t like to be naked, Hudson still wowed us with calming so quickly for us to get the perfect shot. We hope to have the opportunity to work with him again.
