Meet baby Cayden and his sweet parents, Tayler and Dan. Tayler had contacted me a few months ago to book her son's newborn session so when Cayden finally arrived - I was so excited to finally meet him and his parents! Tayler and I discussed the various styles and colors she wanted to incorporate in her session to coordinate with his nursery. They decorated his nursery in different shades of blue, gray white so she wanted to include those colors in his posed newborn photos. But after Cayden was born, she let me know that he had a full head of beautiful brown hair and wanted me to bring props and colors that would show off his gorgeous hair.
We started with the family photos - with mom and dad snuggling on a bed with their new son. I love how cuddling and comfortable they both were with their baby boy! And Cayden was so warm and cozy, snuggled up in a soft, white wrap. We also captured a few images of the family together in Cayden's nursery, which had little Disney themed accessories. I found out that Tayler and Dan were big Disney fans and as a fellow huge Disney fan - I loved the sweet and simple Disney designs!
We then moved on to set up for Cayden's posed newborn photos. This is the point in the newborn session where I take over handling baby for wrapping and posing. During this time, I always encourage the parents to take a break - get something to eat, lie down on the couch or even watch TV for a bit. It's a great time for mom and dad to just relax for a few hours! I set up for Cayden's photos and incorporated various shades of blue into each set. He was such a great little sleeper that I was able to work through several poses, while also focusing on the adorable little details that I love about newborns. Tiny fingernails, the little fuzzy hair covering their body, the wrinkles in their feet and of course Cayden's full head of beautiful hair!
