Nelson came to the studio recently for his session with me as his Macomb Newborn Photographer. He was one of my last babies of 2019.
I first met his Mom Kendall, when she came to the studio for her Complimentary Mini Maternity session. She spent her session talking about how excited she was to meet her new little love.
When Nelson came in, I immediately fell in love with his sweet little face. He was nice and sleepy, but he growled at me non stop. My assistant Amber and I just couldn’t get enough of his little noises. If he hadn’t been such a tiny little guy, he could have almost been intimidating. It was so endearing, and we giggled through his entire session.
First up was my absolutely favorite pose – Froggy. This is always done as a composite (or at least it should be, please don’t let your photographer do this unassisted). This is the pose I will work my absolute hardest at. I just can’t resist it, and showing off those sweet fingers and toes!
After the posing table we moved onto a quick photo in a winter wreath since we was born in December.
After a while of posing as sweetly as he could, he wanted to be wide awake. This period is sometimes hard for me, I definitely am a posed photographer and prefer my little baby clients to be sleepy. However, Kendall said she just loved staring at all the little expressions he made, so we took full advantage and did some “mug shots”. What a silly name, but that is what they remind me of. I really love them in black and white, and will always deliver them this way. It really lets the expressions shine!

What a handsome little guy. I love all of those sweet expressions you captured! I bet his mom was thrilled! Beautiful work!
These are all great. I have never seen such an expressive baby!
