I’ve been snowed in lately, and had a bit of time to blog! Here is Benjamin Bentley, my first baby boy of 2014.
This little guy gives me the warm and fuzzies because he and his family were so great to work with. Baby Ben here arrived at the studio on day 10, which seems to really be my magic number, because after the initial phase of Ben waking up and wondering where he was, he slept the entire session! I can’t say enough how valuable timing is for newborn photography.
Anyway, his parents were so so warm to chat with, and very patient during the session. I realize having these photos taken can be a long process, and I’m so glad they weren’t in a rush to get the session overwith. Baby really is the boss, and I will work with whatever they give me!
They also brought the cutest and softest bear to the session, which made for an excellent pillow when we got to the beanbag sequence. I’ve photographed plenty of baby girls, so it’s always nice to have a little boy to photograph and change things up. I have so many “boyish” props that have gone untouched, so maybe I’ll make more use of them in 2014!
Congrats to Sabrina and Andrew, your son is such a sweetheart!
