This session was a special one for me… it is the first newborn BOY that I’ve photographed. I can’t believe it myself that it took this long. But wow….I couldn’t have asked for a better lil’ guy to start out with.
HIs mom contacted me a few months ago and was adamant about getting one photo in particular at the request of her 4-yr-old daughter, Ashlyn. It was the teacup shot.
I had no prob getting that prop out when they came all the way from Columbia for the photo shoot at my home here in Kansas City. So we’ll start with that one… to introduce Elliot–with a head full of glorious hair at the age of 12 days old! When born, he weighed in at 20.5 inches, 7lbs 5oz.
Again, we focus on Ashlyn, who by the way, kept reapplying her “lip gloss” throughout the shoot. ANDDDDD…she took the suggestion of a photographer (who shall remain nameless) and applied some of the lovely glittery lip goo to her daddy. He LOVED IT.
