I have been a newborn photographer for many years and while my steadfast “best” time to photograph a newborn has always been under 14 days since birth, there are always exceptions to this rule. Patricia contacted me for some newborn and family pictures of their new baby Josh and the kicker was that he was already 6 weeks old. He was born on Christmas Eve and here it was early February. Well I told her that I would try and I had high hopes that we could get something – maybe not the posed baby images but definitely something!
The whole Tovar family came to my studio and this is easily the largest family grouping I have ever done in the studio but we worked it out! The older kids were perfect and they love their new little brother! It isn’t often I am able to get images like the sibling images we got that day! A huge part of the session was the family pictures and then we focused just on Josh.
Mom Patricia brought the most adorable santa hat that they were given while they were in the hospital. I loved how it stood out all on it’s own! We quickly found out that with his older newborn age that he preferred to be covered and swaddled and we did just that! He even cooperated for the snowman pose!
Enjoy some of my favorites from my time with the Tovar family and welcoming baby Josh to the world!
