Timing is everything when planning for a photo session. The first two weeks of life for a newborn session is always a winner, and then at 3 months when babies have developed head/neck control (and at which time they’re likely out of the newborn stage and into the giggly baby stage). But between 6-10 weeks, it can be tricky because they’re not sleepy newborns, but also not yet at the point where they can hold their heads up on their own – so sometimes they’re a bit uncomfortable during sessions. BUT, this sweet baby boy at 6 weeks was such a pleasure to photograph, he was content, easy going, and just adorable!

His house was also full of wonderful natural light…and if that wasn’t already enough to make me grin from ear to ear – his mommy had so many cute, colorful, bold outfits and blankets ready for the photo session – I was just like a kid in a candy store checking out all the fun stuff!

And, the absolute sweetest thing was watching his big cousin interact with him during the photo session.  She was so loving and gentle Рyou could clearly see how much she enjoyed his company Рand the feeling seemed mutual, as he slept right in her arms :)

Of course, preschoolers (around 4 years old) are usually pretty stoked about the idea of being photographed with a baby….BUT, for a toddler (around 2 years old) it’s no surprise that trying to photograph them with a baby may not be as easy – so when I was able to get this shot (a little game of peekaboo did the trick), I was so excited! How cute are they?!

And of course, baby with his adoring mother. So sweet – these moments. Fleeting moments.
How our babies grow up so fast….

And for the last image from this photo session – my favorite of big cousin with her new little baby buddy. Baby boy is cute as can be, and she is just GORGEOUS!
