She flew my assistant Emily and I out for the week to photograph her new little guy, Sebastian. After taking in the city for the first evening , the next morning we headed over to Susan’s for the afternoon. It was such a luxury to have all the time we needed with Sebastian to capture every little newborn move.
We had some great “alert” time together, and he opened his baby blues wide for the camera. Lucky for us, we had worn him out to the point where he slept soundly right through all the adjustments we made to make his sleepy photos just perfect. And mommy, Susan, had the most beautiful textures on hand! Cashmere, mohair, and sheepskin all added magic to the look of these photos, and the cozy comfort of little Sebastian, who really did not cry the whole time. What an angel!
The mother and child portrait (see below) we did is one of my favourite of all time, what mom does not know that wonderful feeling of cuddling up in bed to your perfect little newborn?
Those weeks of newborn bliss are such a fleeting time, everyone deserves beautiful portraits of these moments.
