Time for another great newborn shoot at The Camera’s Eye! Meet Henry William, the fourth in a line of great kiddos!
I’ve known Amy’s family for quite a while, starting when I photographed her oldest son Jack back in 2006 when HE was a newborn. Henry was a surprise for Amy and her family, but the very best kind 🙂
We had hoped that I would be able to go to the hospital to photograph his birth via C-section, but it was against hospital rules…so we settled on doing a newborn shoot 9 days after he was born in the studio, on a SUPER cold day (sound familiar?).
We mostly used the props that I had on hand, but there was one particularly special prop – a handmade airplane quilt from Amy’s 7-year-old daughter Olivia!
Olivia already has her sights set on becoming a fashion designer! Amy and her family have certainly taught their kids well, following the motto of “Work hard and you can accomplish anything.” Like getting started early on Penn State? 🙂
Henry’s newborn session was about four hours long – and even with the super-warm studio and the fact that he was still in his sleepy newborn stage, he was awake for almost ALL of the session, except the last 15 minutes or so!
No worries – as with all of my newborn sessions, we took all the time we needed, with frequent breaks to nurse and rest 🙂
Here’s hoping he was tired out by the end of the shoot and gave his parents some much-needed sleep that night 🙂
