Usually my family photography happens outdoors – at the park, beach, forest, field – you get the picture (har har). But newborns don’t like to go out in December – they prefer the warmth of a mother’s embrace, so Vanessa & David pumped up the heat to prepare two-week-old Dawson for the indignities of his very first professional photo shoot. Dawson’s Dad, David, is a drummer who plays for several local bands, so they wanted to have a little musical theme to their first son’s photography session. Of course we had to try a few shots with Dawson on top of a drum, which was pretty cool until he, um, relieved himself on the situation. Nothing a little blanket swap couldn’t fix! Throughout the shoot, Dawson was very aware with his bright blue eyes and awesome mohawk standing to attention. I haven’t done a ton of newborn photography before, so it was a great experience – I hope V&D are happy with the results.
Below are some of my faves from the shoot, there’s 74 edited photos in total to check out on my proofing and printing website, www.GoodEyePhotography.com
