This was an extra special newborn session, my cousin Angela’s baby boy! They live in Grand Rapids, Michigan – which is a little over 2 hours from me so I packed up my studio, and headed to Grand Rapids for Colton’s session. It was my first time in awhile, shooting a natural light newborn session, and setting up my stuff in someone’s home, and I gotta say, it was nice to use natural light again. It was such a relaxed session as I took my time with Colton, while visiting with my dear cousin, and Tommee and their little girl McKenlee too.
I should take a minute to brag about Tommee’s amazing talents. He’s a Christian music writer, song artist, who is very talented and gifted. Tommee and Angela are also the famous duo in the viral hit, “I’m pregnant and I know it”, which you can watch here: http://youtu.be/THAaNPIxEek (Sorry you will have to copy and paste it into your browser).
It was a great time visiting with Ang and her adorable family. Angela is one of those momma’s who looks so beautiful after having a baby. It was fun to get some lifestyle type shots for them, as I don’t get to do those often. McKenlee was so sweet, she was constantly checking in on baby Colton during the session, and we tried grabbing a couple shots of them together too. McKenlee is the sweetest thing, and cracks us up with her big ‘McKenlee open mouth smile”….so the whole family joined in for one of the shots 😉 Here’s some of my favorite newborn shots from Colton’s session.
