In May of this year, Dewdrops Photography and Nicole Smith Photography spend 2 days in my studio training baby photographers from around the country, on how to pose, soothe and love on babies. The first night, we needed a maternity model, to join us in a field of wild flowers. I contacted a sweet friend Ashley, because she is my go-to resource for many things… She recommended Jeanne for the workshop. She said, ‘If she can… she would be perfect.’ When I called Jeanne, I got the sense that she would really like to join us. At the time she was 5 months along with her 5th child!
Ashley was right, she knew Jeanne was perfect, but not why. When we spoke, Jeanne relayed that she had modeled in her late teens in Milan, Italy. She also thought it would be fun to do some modeling again! Really…. Ashley, you are my go-to resource for a reason…..
Jeanne and her only girl!
Jeanne you are lovely! More beautiful of heart than I could have imagined and it was a pleasure to capture you and your precious little boy in the studio for his newborn images.
Introducing Elijah! His name is serious, it means ‘The Lord is my God.” I was taken with the amount of time he tracked me and turned to the sound of my voice. Babies at 9 days old struggle with focus and very often one eye is a wanderer. Not little Elijah, he seemed to look deep into my eyes and numerous times he seemed to actually hold my gaze. I can’t wait to see him again, and see if that only gets more obvious! Enjoy him….
What is it about baby lips….?
Blessings on your Little Man!
