getting to snuggle babies and photograph them AND calling it a job…is a dream come true. squishy cheeks, chubby legs, flakey skin…i love it! add in an adorable sibling that loves being in front of the camera…and i could not ask for more! this session was such a breeze. mama knew that going to a relatives house, that is currently on the market, was our best bet for light and a clutter free environment. she was so right! it was the perfect location! beckett’s older brother, byson, was able to ride his big wheel around in the empty rooms while we finished up his ‘posed’ shots. we took a few funny ones too 🙂
i always try to make pictures as painless as possible for dads! it’s in their nature to…not want to take pictures. i get it! my husband is the same way. he has to be bribed with something. we wanted to have everything ready so dad could just step in, take a few shots and then go play with his kiddo, and that’s just what we did. 15 minutes tops!jeni was smart in bringing a few details with her. fun fact…noah, her husband, built this bed for them when they first got married. he’s a handy-man 😉beckett spent about 80% of his session awake 🙂 which is okay when you have pretty eyes 🙂byson LOVES his little brother! i just know these two will be wrestling as soon as beckett is able to hold himself up in a sitting position!jeni’s mother made this crocheted red and white striped blanket. she had a matching navy blue diaper cover and hat with white stars on it…but beckett is a chunk 🙂 and they were a little…tight 🙂 jeni wanted to incorporate the red white and blue since beckett was born so close to the fourth of july!byson was a DREAM to photograph! he was mesmerized with my camera 🙂 isn’t he precious?!we may have worn byson out a little early on…i had him jump on the bed and he was riding his big wheel bike around…this is the “i’m too sleepy for pictures…” look
this is a perfect example of how mom is with baby, and dad is with baby!!!!
to keep byson busy while we took beckett’s wrap pictures…we had to send him with daddy for a snack. noah found some pistachios, and jeni and i laughed when we realized beckett was wrapped up EXACTLY like a pistachio!!!!!! so we took this one for giggles 🙂 but i think it is super cute and a fun little memory from our time together 🙂
jeni + noah…i love you guys and i love your boys so much! thank you for spending the evening with me!
