I just blogged about the Courson’s a few days ago (like I said, I’m catching up, haha) with their maternity session back in December. You can see that post HERE. Well Rivers made his appearance in January and Erica contacted me shortly after to make sure we got some photos before he got too big. I personally don’t care how big they are, it’s important to get photos of your babies no matter what, but that newborn stage is gone before you know it. They grow up WAY too fast!
Depending on the time of the year, you can get newborn photos outside, but I tend to recommend lifestyle sessions for babies. They are so small and fragile, and keeping them where they are most comfortable makes for an easier session. Especially when they get hungry or need a diaper change. And it’s also a lot easier for the parents as well. They get to do whatever they like and just be comfy in their own home.
Rivers was fully awake just about the entire time I was there, so we had a wide eyed baby for the session, haha. And was so happy! AND all dressed up in Pittsburg Penguins gear…..as you can tell…mom and dad (mostly dad) are fans, haha. Everything went so easy and I can’t wait to see these wonderful people again 🙂
Here are some of my favorites from The Courson’s Lifestyle session!
I love watching how the families I photograph grow over time. It makes me feel like I’m KINDA part of their family by getting to photograph such moments for them. I will still stand by saying that I think Rivers looks just like Erica, but we shall see how time will fight against me, haha.
Thank you Ian & Erica for allowing me to photograph your family, once again, and I hope to do more so in the future 🙂
