This newborn photo shoot is one of the most special sessions I have shot to date. Amanda, LJ’s mom, has been my best friend since high school. We attended the same college, were in each others weddings, and continue to stay in touch as our lives change and families grow.
We had talked about maternity and newborn portraits and had both scheduled well in advance. One more task Amanda could cross off her list in preparation for her and Carl’s new addition to the family. We scheduled her maternity portraits for December 30th and newborn portraits for February 4th. So you can imagine my surprise when I received a picture of Amanda laying in a hospital bed on Christmas day. LJ made his appearance 11:30 Christmas night.
LJ was and absolute angel for his newborn portraits and it was so great to be the photographer to capture these precious moments for Carl and Amanda. There are so many excellent portraits! Here are some of my favorites. Check out the rest of LJ’s Newborn Session Here.
P.S. I knew they were having a boy! I shot a newborn session in early July and used antlers…I called Amanda right after the session and told her I knew they were having a boy and when he arrived, we were using some of Carls hunting trophies and gear in the newborn pictures.
