Remember my 24 things to do before I turn 25 list? I had mentioned that one of my goals was to eventually shoot my sister’s maternity and her newborns. Well back in April, I had a wonderful maternity shoot with Julie and a couple weekends ago, it was finally time to shoot her newborn, Jake!
Not to be biased or anything since he is my nephew and all, but Jake is such a beautiful baby boy! He was extremely alert which made things a little more difficult then planned, but my guess is that he was too excited to see Auntie Melissa! After 3 sleepless hours, Jake finally fell asleep for about 15-20 minutes.
Newborn shoots are never a sure thing but the results are so worth the effort. Here are a couple shots from that small window of time:
Proof that Jake was wide awake during most of the shoot!
I love you guys
