Hezekiah. Meaning: God is my strength.
When a family arrives in my home studio for a photo session it's always a little toasty for their baby to sleep comfortably. I really love soaking up those first few minutes holding the parent's baby in their everyday onesie. Hezekiah was no different. He was such a squishy baby full of sweet dreams.
He really seemed at ease resting comfy with his mom and dad. This is always such a wonderful experience for me as a photographer to watch how a couple snuggles and interacts with their baby and one another. Nathan fit in and snuggled with Brooklynn like a glove; never missing a beat.
I adore father/baby photographs. These tender moments are so important. Each time I set up a photo with Nathan he knew exactly what to do, and how to feel. This is such a favorite moment for me because he was really soaking in that baby smell.
Hezekiah sure had strength alright. He gave me the best mean-mug face ever when we began taking photos of him by himself.
He eventually fell into a sleepy baby slumber. I win!
I kept the studio nice and toasty to keep him resting peacefully. It's always a goal of mine to try and capture a smile from each newborn I photograph. Yay!
I love this little bonnett on him. It looks so old fashion and classic. It was made by the lovely K2CBlooms.
Even though he snoozed comfortably, his hands made an appearance. Stretchy babe.
I had such a wonderful time catching up with this sweet family from the comfort of my newborn studio. Hezekiah and his parents are such joyous people, and I treasured our time together.
