Newborn Baby Photographer!

I had my very first newborn baby session this weekend.  I've found my calling!  OK, I don't know if that's fair because truly all I did was work the camera.  Brand new baby Nathan did all the heavy lifting.  Or rather, sleeping in this case.  He was a joy to work with because he is one pooped out kiddo.  Perfect for posing and letting me take my time.  

The mom for this session was surprised when she saw the pictures.  I know why she was worried, I can't blame her.  I grabbed a normal office desk chair, placed his favorite blanky on it, and had his mom plop him in the middle.  Some natural light magic from a window, and we had a perfect little impromptu studio.  These are almost all straight from the camera (except the B&W of course).  I'm thrilled.  Now if I can only get some more little clients like this!  

And of course we had to have one of the whole family!  And baby makes 4. 

Congrats to Nathan's new parents!!
