Celebrating Harper - 2.5months | Baby Photographer, Wilmington, NC

I'll tell you - you never know what you are going to get with babies - expecially babies between 2-4 months (well, any age - but especially this age!) Harper's parents were in town visiting family - so it was the perfect opportunity for a beach session - or so we thought. It ended up being really HOT this weekend - so we opted to start the session in my natural light studio!!!! It's so awesome to have this space now to offer to families. We thought it would keep Harper happy - and cool.

Well, things started looking pretty good at first.
And then maybe not so good. It's hard to stay happy when you're a baby.
And what we discovered was that he was very tired.
So dad did his best to keep him awake for a little bit longer - and Harper managed to pull out a smile for us all!
And then proceeded to let us know that he was DONE with the studio! Check out the expression on his face - paired with the non-verbal communication of his middle finger. Ok, this is really an out-take - but I couldn't NOT include it.
So, we went to the beach. It was still HOT - even at 7:30. Harper still wanted to sleep - so we went with it - what else can you do with a baby on the beach?
Mom is just stunning in this one to me - being a mommy looks real good on her!
Such a beautiful family.
I hope you'll be seeing more of Harper and his parents. They come to the area often - and I actually go to their area often, too!
Don't forget.....I love comments!
