At the wise old age of two weeks, little Ivan didn’t want to fall asleep for his session, but it gave his mom and me a chance to spend some time together and chat about things like fabric baby carriers and making homemade chicken stock (something we both like to do).
When I have the opportunity to spend a little extra time getting to know a family, I get a to peer into their world in a different way than if I were just a stranger. It gives me a chance to capture images on a more intimate level and reveal those soft sweet kisses, gurgling coos, and bright soulful eyes, embraced by the soft, sweet lavender light of an overcast morning. These are the kind of images I hope to have of my own one day.
This last set of images is a fun little 20″ x 20″ collage concept for when your baby is full of expressions and he had lots! So sweet!
