I can’t believe that I haven’t blogged Marcus’ newborn session yet! I think it’s because I did it right at the beginning of the 7-weddings-in-6-weeks craziness of July and August, that I was just concerned about getting the photos ready for Christine and blogging didn’t even cross my mind. No matter though, I’m here now to share my adorable session with this little fellow 🙂
This actually isn’t the first time that I’ve photographed a member of this family; last August I had a session with 2-year old Claire, who is now a proud big sister to Marcus. And let me tell you, he made me work for it! I originally came over to their home to do the session in the evening, thinking I could do some shots outside since it was still nice and warm out…well after a few attempts we soon realized that this was going to be his ‘witching hour’ and that he was not having anything to do with sleeping or being still. I managed to get a few shots of him awake in his crib (something different for me) but didn’t feel satisfied so I came back the next morning for another go at it, and even though he was still quite lively (probably the lightest sleeper I’ve worked with so far!), we did manage to get him under long enough to snag some cute poses. We also did a few shots with Claire in her room, which are quite sweet. While I do love working with newborns, sometimes they definitely make it interesting (he may have also been the first guy to try and ‘spray’ me while shooting, haha!)
Here is his full session, enjoy!
Back soon with another session I should have blogged awhile ago, my session with the Tremblay kids!
