Looking for a newborn photographer near St. Paul, MN? Look no further! My studio is only a short drive across the Mississippi river to Brooklyn Park. This little boy’s mama made the trek just a few short weeks ago to my studio for her baby boy’s newborn photos.
This little guy was wide awake for the first part of the session, but he gave the BEST facial expressions. I actually love when newborns stay awake for a small portion of the session just for this reason. As long as they’re calm and settled and are ok just lying down without being held, capturing those facial expressions and smiles (if you can grab them) is such a joy!
Eventually after 45 minutes of soothing/white noise he finally drifted off to sleep, so I was able to get a few poses out of him. It didn’t last long, though, before we woke up again and needed to be swaddled for the last few shots. Again, giving the best facial expressions.
This particular session was booked under my Simple Baby Session, which is of baby only. This is a great option when you want to capture your newborn, but aren’t necessarily up for photos yourself.
