Baby Nathaniel decided that he wanted to arrive earlier than expected. We did a maternity session a few months ago and knew Nathaniel was going to arrive towards the end of November. But he decided early November was better for him! When they arrived for the newborn session and we were getting started Amie said that he would probably sleep the entire time because that’s what he does at home. Except of course for sleeping at night when he is supposed to be sleeping he is wide awake. They brought with him a few important props to include in their session. We always encourage our families to bring anything that is important to them because we love making the images unique to each baby. Nathaniel is only about 5 pounds, he is such a tiny little newborn that some of the hats could cover his whole head. Dad said he’s been growing quickly and he just wants to know why at 10 days old he isn’t talking yet. We think dad has some very high expectations and also know the Nathaniel will probably meet and exceed all of them – except for talking at 10 day old. A few holiday photos followed by images with the army gear and police badges create a perfect way to honor the service of mom and dad as they take this much needed break to enjoy some time together with the new baby. Each time we moved Nathaniel from one post to another he almost was in perfect position just sitting in our hands and then we sent him down and he stayed exactly as we put, him such a perfect baby model! He even had a big grin in a few photos, some smirks, the sweetness of a sleepy baby and a few with his eyes wide open. There are so many options for mom and dad to pick from when they see the photos. When we concluded they had decided they needed to be a part of our birthday club which is very exciting because we would love to work with Nathaniel again and next time get mom and dad in a couple photos too. These newborn photos are going to make some amazing Christmas gifts for this family.   #ravettaphotography #stlphotographer #newbornsession #babyboy #birthdayclub
