Some baby newborn photo sessions are super special for a variety of reasons. Sam's session was one of them because his mommy and daddy took my Birthworks Childbirth Education class just a few weeks before this little guy decided to enter the world AND I got to take their maternity photos! Having seen and got to know this couple over a few weeks of class, I couldn't wait to see them again and meet the beautiful boy who had been in his mama's belly all that time!
Samuel and his mom & dad came to my newborn studio in Frederick MD for their newborn photos when he was just a couple of weeks old. They brought some special items for his session - a (not scary, honest) clown and shark, and a beautiful handmade blanket. I love incorporating special items into newborn photos! I know how much these things mean to the parents and they always choose them as part of their final collection.
Here are some of my favorites from Samuel's first photo shoot!
