Baby Alex || DC newborn session

For the month of June I had 3 newborns scheduled, in addition to all my maternity and family sessions. I never book more sessions that I can schedule and edit in a timely matter though, which also includes leaving room for the what if's and unknowns. Little Alex here is a perfect example, as he decided to arrive 5 weeks early! And not only him, but another one of my June babies came a few weeks early too! There must've been something in the water! Early, late, right on time, it's never a big deal, because I will never be over scheduled to where I can't fit you in.

You may remember that I photographed Sarah and Jason, and their sweet pup Jackson back in March, right before Jackson passed away. It was a bittersweet time for this family, and I know they still miss him so much. The photos from their maternity session serve as a tribute to his sweet life though, and something they can show Alex as he grows. And I sure do LOVE when clients book maternity and newborn packages! Getting to know families and to photograph those beautiful bumps is made even more special by getting to meet the little ones that were in there.  By the second session, the newborn session, families are a lot more relaxed as well because we know each other a little bit, and they've also hopefully realized that being in front of the camera isn't all that bad ;)

Here's baby Alex in all his cuteness! And be sure to follow the link above to go back and see Sarah's beautiful little bump <3
