Newborn Photo Session with Baby Boy Atticus!

A week ago, Atticus was 13 days old and I had fun doing a newborn photo session with this tie while he was having a sweet little nap with some darling smiles. He must have been having sweet dreams. I used my Nikon D600 with a Nikon 85mm 1.4. I settled on a 2.0 f/stop and 200 ISO utilizing some nice window light at around 9:00 am. I LOVE NEWBORNS! Birth is such a miracle, and I consider it a privilege to be around around a little person who was so recently in an amazing place as a spirit before coming to this mortal existence to get his body. What an incredible time of transition. One he won’t experience again until he leaves this mortal life. I hope you enjoy his little expressions. It makes you wonder what he is dreaming about. Newborn photography can be tricky, but rewarding if you are patient and get the right timing. I feel that right after a feeding is the best time, but be ready for some little baby accidents if you try any naked baby shots. Haha!

My daughter, Zoe, has quite an eye for photography. She took the two picnic basket portraits. Nice work, Zoe! I would love to hear what you think, if you have a minute to leave a comment. Thanks for stopping by. I will be posting more of Atticus. His two-week old portrait session was epic. He was in great form for his granna!
