A baby boy born to new parents

Spring brings new life and this was true for my cousin and his wife in April. They welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world on April 4th and we quickly set up a photo session to capture those first sleepy weeks of his life. Sammy slept like a champ almost the entire time because he was well fed. He was a perfect little subject to photograph and I’m so glad I was able to capture him as a newborn. I think black and white photographs of newborns are my personal favorite, but there are some lovely color portraits of the whole family as well.

Do you prefer black and white or color photographs of newborns? Do you think it’s sweet when they are so sleepy? I love it!

  1. Heather, these photos are just beautiful. You can feel the love in each picture. Yours and theirs. Best of luck to both of you with your little one on the way. We are loving Anthony & Kate being here as much as I’m sure you are all missing them.

    Hope to see you sometime soon

  2. Thank you for such a lovely comment, Karen!
