Julia & Kai
I met Julia at a La Leche League meeting about a month ago when she was "out to here" pregnant. Little Kai was only 10 days old on the day of our shoot, so he filled by very newborn "slot," in my search for 10 nursing pairs. Kai is a funny little nurser, but much easier to photograph than the more aware older babies I've shot over the past three sessions, he just kept at it, even when mom and I were talking, or moving him about. His amazing alertness and constant locking of mom's eyes were great to see in such a little guy, one more benefit of the breastfed baby.
I also snuck in a few more "newborn" photos for my newborn portfolio. He was just so mellow, fresh, and new and frankly too sweet not to take advantage of some solo photos of him.
