The newborn stage is such a rollercoaster for parents. Yes, you might have little to no sleep and feel constantly challenged to learn how to be a new parent, but your baby’s first days of discovering the world are such a precious time you’ll cherish forever. What better way to commemorate that incredibly fleeting stage than with beautiful newborn photos?
That is why, when Mason was on the way, Mom’s sister-in-law chose to give them the gift of a newborn session. The aunt-to-be loved her own photo session so much that she knew it would become a much more sentimental and long-lasting gift than another box of diapers or Mason’s 300th onesie. So, when Mason made his arrival into the world, Mom couldn’t wait to schedule her little boy’s session.
For the most part, Mom and Dad wanted relatively simple photos. Rather than ornate props and backdrops, they just wanted classic photos to capture this special time in their family’s life. Mason was more than happy to cooperate, and he even graced us all with a huge smile while swaddled up and clutching a soft teddy bear. It was a precious moment I was thrilled to be able to capture these loving parents.
Of course, every parent loves to share their own passions with their child early in life, and because Dad is an avid Yankees fan, that means Yankee fandom is Mason’s birthright too. We captured this father-son legacy with an adorable shot of Mason donning a tiny Yankees cap and surrounded by the baseballs, bats, and gloves that he’ll one day use to play catch with Dad in the backyard.
Mom and Dad alike were thrilled with the gift of their newborn photos, and I think it’s safe to say that Aunty will be getting a few extra hugs for knocking it out of the park.
