Two years ago, I had the privilege of photographing one of the sweetest, big-brown-eyed baby girls, Addison. She was a little doll! So, I was thrilled to be able to capture her little brother for his newborn session. Dad was a football player himself and a huge UGA fan, so we had some fun incorporating a few extra props for this session. (Feeling a little anxious for college football season? If you’re a Bulldawg fan, you can check out their schedule here and start planning your tailgate party!)
When I photograph newborns, it’s common that the baby will have trouble focusing their eyes- those little muscles just aren’t developed yet! My own daughter was cross-eyed for at least a month, and while kinda cute and funny, it usually doesn’t make for the best keepsake photograph. However, Patrick was wide-eyed, showing off a handsome little smile here, in one of my favorite photographs from our session.
I love this picture from our session- his precious pink skin tones and sweet sleepy smile. Perfect!
UPDATE: April 15th 2015 It’s this sweet baby boy’s FIRST BIRTHDAY and in honor of him, I posted the photo above, but only after starting from scratch on editing. I’ve learned a lot of new techniques since last year and I find that I’m not loving my older photos like I should. To see the new and improved photo, click here Atlanta Newborn Photographer
