Melanie’s husband, Jeremiah, had gifted her with a photography session for her first Mother’s Day and they found me on Instagram. Baby Jamison was 7 weeks old when I came over to their home to take newborn lifestyle photos for them. Since he was a bit older we got some really great smiles and expressions during our session.
Jamison is such a cute, sweet baby! He did great and was wide awake the whole time. I believe in letting the baby guide the session so if Jamison wasn’t happy with a “pose” we did, it was easy to just tell his parents to pick him up and we could try something different. At one point, we had him lying on his back on the master bed, but he was crying. When Melanie picked him up she realized that his diaper was full and he was uncomfortable. Changing him and holding him upright instead of laying him down was the right way to go and an easy fix to get him in a good mood again. 🙂
We did most of the photos in Jeremiah and Melanie’s home, but since they live across the street from a park, we also went over there for a few more photos just before sunset. By the end, Jamison was ready for bed, but he was such a trooper!
