Elijah-Paradise Valley Newborn Photographer
On February 15th, this Paradise Valley newborn photographer got to do something I have been waiting to do, for what feels like an eternity….I got to take photos of my new sweet little nephew, Elijah! My sister gave birth to this beautiful little boy on February 6th. He had to have an extra long hospital stay due to a bad case of jaundice 🙁 At 9 days new, Mr. Elijah was finally ready for his close up! He was ready to party when we first started. He stared directly into my lens and I grabbed this first shot of him with those big beautiful eyes of his <3
Once we got him swaddled up, he was down for the count. I even caught a little smile! I wonder what he was dreaming about? I am a Paradise Valley newborn photographer trained in the safety of these tiny little humans. Newborn safety is my number one priority. This cute little potato sack pose was captured with Mom’s (and Dad’s) hands on him at ALL times. This image was achieved through the fine art of composite imaging. It takes two (or more) images and then they are combined to create this final image. A lot of my babies that visit me in my studio, tend to smile when they are in the potato sack pose. I’m not sure if there’s a science to it, but it seems to make them happy 🙂
Words cannot even express how happy I am for my sister and brother in law. This little man is such a blessing and my heart is so full to see them in their most important roles yet… as Mommy and Daddy!
I had such a fun time capturing my sister’s beautiful family. I can’t wait to watch this little guy grow up through my lens!
