I won’t type in all caps, but you can pretty much read this post in my screaming squealing voice. Baby Mason is here!! I have been bouncing off the walls for months in anticipation of meeting my new nephew! I was an etsy addict buying all kinds of things for his newborn session and I blocked off a week at the studio so I could be in South Carolina after he was born to love on him and photograph him. There was only one catch… the little booger missed his due date. Yep. In my family of uber-punctual people, this little guy decided to be late. Not a little late, either! NINE DAYS LATE! By the time he finally arrived and got home from the hospital it was the last day we would be up there. So all of my big newborn portrait session plans condensed into one insane marathon day of newborn photos.
Thank goodness the little dude was a trooper. I probably did four full newborn sessions worth of images with him, destroying my brother’s house in the process! We did all the normal fun newborn session things, but then we did some special themed images to incorporate my sister-in-laws love of Harry Potter, my brother’s love of Nissan and Mason’s Snoopy and Charlie Brown themed nursery. It was so awesome to have complete creative control and to know the parents so well that I could really add some personal touches to the session. Plus, it meant I had hours of uninterrupted Mason time!
So, this is the first of what I am sure will be many many posts of Mason photos over the coming months and years!
