A few days ago I photographed baby Aeden at 15 days old for a friend of mine, and we had such a great time posing him and chuckling at his little personality. To start, he seemed pretty awake with his eyes open looking around at the bright lights and strange person in his face– me. But eventually, he began to doze off with the help of mom’s voice and touch. Go mom! I did have to laugh a little when we tried to close his eyes for him, saying “go to sleep now Aeden…”
It’s fun to discover a baby’s tendencies, too. Even with their eyes closed, they tell you yes or no to certain positions, laying their little hands and feet where they feel comfortable. That’s why you never know what types of photos you might get with newborns. Aeden frowned at a hat we tried, and smiled while laying on his side (below)! And it always amazes me when I see their little toes up by their nose, reminding me that I need to go home and stretch more. All in all, it was a great photo session and I can’t thank the family enough for having me photograph their new addition.
