I am always telling people that if they want newborn-style portraits, I need to do them EARLY, preferably before the baby is 10 days old. (And that is one of my favorite perks for my job, which I love, that I get to be one of the first people to meet the newborns!) So anyway, I'm always so happy when I get a baby who's a little older, but I can get them to sleep for portraits anyway! I think 2 out of my last 3 2-month-olds I have been able to coax to sleep, I love it.
This little guy was DARLING, and he had the most beautiful deep blue eyes! I had to do most of these preview portraits in color, not in black & white, because I just had to see the blue. :)
He started out asleep...
Then awake. And - his mom brought some really great hats!
Usually it's kind of tough to get 2 month olds to smile for pictures. I always hear "Well, he smiles all the time at home..." but he was so smiley!
And then we got him to sleep! LOVE this hat.
I've been working on this pose - so tricky to get them up on their elbows! He was so good. :)
Then - awake again, and so happy! What a good boy.
His mom is great. They just moved to the area, and I'm so happy she found me for portraits! I loved meeting her. (And isn't she beautiful?)
Thanks so much for coming! There are tons more great pictures, and I should have your gallery in the next week or so.
