Celebrating Newborns - 10 day old Nolan | Newborn Photographer Kure Beach, NC

I've been taking pictures of big sister K for a couple years, now - she goes to preschool with Silas (my son) and I take their school pictures. So I was delighted when they asked me to take Nolan's newborn portraits. It was a long day - but man - I got some fun images.

He started out WIDE awake - and I mean wide awake. Look at those beautiful blue eyes.

Just having fun!
And then he konked out - I've been wanting to do a shot like this for a while - and finally figured out how to do it!!!
I don't know what it is about this one that I love so much - sweet sleeping baby, chin rolls, pouty lips - sigh.
I love seeing his eye lashes in this one - and of course those lips!
No words - just melt my heart. Mom and dad are going to have to watch big sister K - look at those eyes.
Ok, now I totally had to share this! Normally I don't allow personal cameras to be brought out during a session - but how could I say no to a budding photographer. And look - she likes close-ups, too!
Congrats to you on your new addition to your family - it was so fun!
**remember we all love comments!**
