I have to start out this blog by saying how much fun I had working with this family! Their lifestyle newborn session was one of the most unique photo projects I've ever had the pleasure of taking on. Mike and Bethann were laughing about how hard it was to not wear solid black because thats how they normally dress. Their dog, Misha, was curious the entire session but did not like the shutter click of my camera and went running almost every time I snapped a few photos. Eventually, we got this shy pup in there for a few. Go team! Bethann was open to doing some breastfeeding photos during their session and I am really glad that she did. There is something so special about it when they are that small in your arms and so new to the world. We forget as moms how they used to fit so tightly to our chest and it's a really lovely reminder when they no longer fit because they've grown so quickly. I think the most unique part of their session though was Mike's fusion of his love with guitars and music into his son's photos. Mike picked a few of his favorites to take with Wylder and then he actually played one with Wylder ON THE GUITAR! Don't worry for all of you safety conscious people out there, Mom was right there spotting everything and he was very securely placed on the acoustic guitar. It was really incredible. I think every dad who plays an instrument out there would see this and request the same type of photos because it's just so special. This was impossible to narrow down because their family was so photogenic and so sweet, but these are some of my favorite images from their lifestyle newborn photo shoot.
