I was so excited when Lennon’s mom contacted me to schedule a newborn photography session. I had just recently had her coworker’s sweet girl in the studio and Lennon’s mom loved all of the images and immediately contacted me to book her daughter’s session. Referrals make me so happy because that means that the work that I pour my heart and soul into has made someone else so happy that they pass along my information! Its such a beautiful cycle!
Lennon was scheduled for a “newborn mini session” – which is a new option that I just started offering in 2018. This is a one hour session where baby remains wrapped the entire time – versus a full newborn photography session that could last anywhere between 2-3 hours since it can sometimes take a little more time to settle a naked baby between setups. Her family drove down to Hilliard from Westerville, where mom was certain her sweet baby would asleep in the car but when they arrived sweet Lennon still had her eyes wide open! A little snack and she was knocked out and ready to rock! Lennon was a ROCK STAR when she was here. And of course she would be – she’s the daughter of one! Her dad is in a band, Tod and the Bad Ideas, so Lennon is going to grow up with music being a large part of her life … and since music is so important to her dad – we had to sneak in one prop setup that is a little outside of my normal, simple setups:
How stinkin’ adorable is that baby girl all wrapped up and snuggled up next to daddy’s favorite set of strings? I just love how it turned out!
Here are a few more sneaks from our session! It’s crazy how many setups and different images we were able to capture in under an hour! So much fun!
Tiny baby yawns are my absolutely favorite! I love how much work they put into it.
I was laughing so hard when I was taking pictures of her tiny toes. Sometimes babies curl their feet together, or pull one leg in as I’m trying to get the feet just right, but as soon as I let her feet out, she put her toes just like this – and I said to mom, “she’s giving me great toes right now” ha ha ha. Like she was doing it on purpose.
Can you believe that hair? It’s so gorgeous! And I know a lot of mom’s coworkers will be so excited to play with this hair once she is older!
Simple. Just baby. Pure innocence.
Lennon’s nursery is blush pink and grey – we did some perfect setups for mom to be able to choose images for the frames she received at her shower!
