Oh baby Abel, this kiddo that has made me work super hard for his birth and newborn sessions. He took his sweet time to enter the world, ( his poor momma!) Then we attempted his newborn session three times before we were able to capture some magical moments of his handsome self.
Our initial plan for his newborn session was to do it all outside, between the heat, bugs, and a wide awake baby that plan was a bust. Time for plan B, we agreed to try again in baby's home and again, a wide awake baby, who was full of pee!!! So a regroup, we went our separate ways with a plan to meet up at the studio the next day. However, later that day momma messaged me to say baby was awake all morning and now sleeping soundly!!!! What, I scrambled my schedule, and we made it work that evening. IT WAS MAGIC!!!!
We nailed several poses, different hats, blankets, and it was awesome. Momma and I were so excited to get these shots of this little guy. He is such a perfectly chunky baby, full of back rolls, (my fav!)
Here are some outtakes from his session, I wish I could have time to play with babies like this every day!
