Whooooo is this?
Meet Kelton! This little man came to the studio for his first photography session. He was a little over the 10 day “Newborn” phase but we still managed to get a few of those gorgeous sleeping baby shots and poses.
The ideal time to bring a baby in for their Newborn session in within the first 7-10 days of birth, though of course a baby can be photographed at any time to capture their tiny little form. However when parents bring their newbies to the studio they expect to leave with beautiful images of their angel sleeping and in those beautiful curled up poses and wearing sweet hats… Those things are difficult enough to capture at the best of times but once the baby has been out in the big world they’re less likely to sleep solidly as soon as fed, or be easily positioned and posed.
Kelton took a while to settle and then slept for very short periods, meaning we had to take lots of breaks and have a lot of patience while he fed regularly. However, once he finally fell into that lovely deep sleep we were able to capture a ton of beautiful images of him and his very happy parents Carrie + Curtis.
