Hello Photo lovers, today I have the distinct pleasure of introducing you to baby Sawyer who was only 6 days new during his session!
I think we can all agree: His cheeks and sweetness should earn him a spot on the cover of every baby magazine in the nation! Seriously, I'm practically melting from cuteness overload!
Anyway, as you can see from the pictures below, Sawyer’s family and I had one of the best sessions together. His mom, Ashley who happens to be a sweet friend of mine, made sure he was fed and had all the props for their session. Her preparation efforts allowed us to have an especially awesome shoot together.
Sawyer slept most of his way through our 2.5 hour session. And when he wasn't sleeping, Sawyer was sweet, calm and relaxed. He honestly couldn’t have been any better.
“We had such a great experience with Melissa! She handled Sawyer with so much love and care while swaddling him and positioning for all the pictures! We loved how the shoot turned out! We have used them for his birth announcement" says Ashley.
Because the shoot went so well, I asked Ashley if she would share one helpful piece of advice with other mothers planning a newborn session (See – I've got your back, moms around the world). Her biggest piece of advice is: “Plan out at least 3 hours because you want them to turn out perfect and sometimes newborns aren’t ready to be photographed"
I absolutely cannot wait to see how baby Sawyer grows and changes in the upcoming months! I LOVE my job!!
Without further adieu, Mr. Sawyer, everyone!
