His little hands stole our heart… and his little feet ran away with it♡
I first met the Shead family two years ago when Jessica and DeShawn welcomed their little girl Savannah and I captured newborn pictures of Savannah. I was excited to find out that Jessica and DeShawn were expecting again and would be welcoming a little boy to their family. They asked me to capture newborn photos for them once again.
Carson came into the studio with his Mommy. DeShawn was home on toddler duty with big sister who was feeling a bit under the weather. Often times siblings come in as part of the newborn session so I can capture sibling and family shots. This can be stressful for the mom as younger siblings are not always cooperative. Occasionally mom comes in with just the newborn only. This allows a chance for mom to relax for a few hours while I work with her little one. I have mom pull up a chair right next to the beanbag as I work with baby. I also encourage mom to snap a few pictures on her cell phone so she can share a little “behind the scenes” of the photo shoot. It is important that mom has a relaxing experience.
Carson came in at 26 days old. Although this is slightly older than newborns I typically see, there is no magic age for newborn photos. I have been equally successful with older newborns as well as younger newborns. Each baby is different. Carson was by far one of the best babies I have worked with. Jessica and I laughed as we remembered big sister Savannah’s session a couple of years earlier. She was a tough baby and still holds the baby poop record! Carson slept for most of his session. He let me to put him in every single pose that I had planned. Carson’s daddy DeShawn is a cornerback for our Seattle Seahawks. When I was asked to capture newborn photos, I started planning the perfect pose I wanted to capture for dad. He completely rocked the pose and I got the exact shot that I envisioned. Mom brought in the most awesome hat and pants from Sugar Babies. I loved the set so much I think I need to order for the studio.
Enjoy the following photos from Carson’s session:
