Let’s just say that Joan & James are no stranger to this blog. My goodness, I have had the honor and privilege of documenting many important milestones in their lives. None, however, feel as sweet and momentous as the arrival of their new son James Jr. Born on June 28th, James Jr. has entered the world as one of the most curious newborns I have ever met.
Newborn sessions typically take about 3 hours to allow enough time for feedings, changings, etc. Typically, a newborn will sleep through the better part of the 3 hours. James Jr. however stayed awake nearly the entire time! He watched me very closely and even had an awareness of the clicking sound of the camera. Toward the end of the portrait session, James Jr. fell into a deep sleep and even smiled a few times during his much needed nap.
Both of Joan & James’ parents were visiting during the newborn session so we had an opportunity to capture James Jr. with the new grandparents as well. We will be documenting James Jr. at 6 months and at 12 months later this year so make sure to check back to see this little one’s first year sessions.
