Last weekend I had the opportunity to photograph this adorable little guy! Hillary and Mike welcomed their first child, Jonah, into the family two weeks prior to this shoot! I love shooting newborns, although it is one of my newer types of shoot. I think one thing that is particularly special about it is just seeing babies faces – they have such a wonder of the world around them. You can see into their heads, and can totally tell that they are absorbing everything around them, constantly learning and observing.
Jonah was very well behaved through the whole shoot, and we even used some props such as a bear and a letter “J” to reflect the name. Hillary and I struggled for a few minutes to prop him in a small basket for some cute shots, but in the end the outcome was totally worth it, as the little guy plopped in and started looking around the room happily. Congrats, Hillary and Mike! Jonah is a totally cute newborn, and you all will be great parents!
Enjoy this short preview of the shoot!
