Sweet Henry Dean is the grandson of my God Parents… so I claim him as my God Nephew.
He lives in Dallas, so I didn’t get to meet him until he was a month old… a bit out of the “normal” newborn portraiture range. It can still be done, of course, but it requires a bit of extra patience. At a month old, babies usually don’t sleep as deeply and won’t stay as curled as they were in the womb… making posing more difficult and the time span they will remain asleep while being posed much shorter.
But Henry and I came to an understanding and he allowed a few sweet poses. Big brother, however, didn’t want a thing to do with me, my camera, or his little brother.
I was on location for this session, which I no longer offer because of ALL the gear and props I need access to in my studio. I was also using natural light, which I haven’t done in months but quite enjoyed.
This was a welcome challenge, for sure.
Welcome to the family, Henry!
