future ball player | Surprise, Arizona Newborn Photographer

Mr. {M} was the perfect little model. When discussing his session, his mom knew she wanted to do a little bear cub set, a hammock shot and a football set up.  Naturally Sweet Surprises custom-made the cutest little bear cub hat and paws and whipped up a football hat just in time since {M} decided to arrive a little early.

In the newborn photography world, there are a few poses that are actually composites which means two photos are merged together. We tried the froggy pose (facing forward, chin in hands where it looks like they're holding themselves up but actually aren't), but he just wasn't feeling it. We got close! I will only try this pose if absolutely asked because of the extra work and safety that goes into it. And the other pose we really wanted to try was where he would be lying in a "hammock." He wasn't loving it either but we managed to get one shot which turned out beautiful! It is a composite. I only mention so other photographers realize someone's hands were holding him at all times, and I just merged two photos together deleting the hands so it appears he is hanging.

The session couldn't have gone more smoothly thanks to my amazing assistant, Stephanie of Telltales Photography. I wish she could come along to every session I do! And {M}'s parents were incredibly patient and sweet as they watched their sweet baby boy during his first photo shoot.

And since I didn't have a chance to blog {M}'s gorgeous mama's maternity session, here are a few pictures from that as well. We got lucky with amazing weather and such a gorgeous night up at the White Tank Mountains.

Congratulations, {M} Family! And thank you for being so incredibly kind, patient and amazing to work with. Little {M} is going to have one bright future.
