Wyatt was so precious! And I sure do get some of the most beautiful moms! At 13 days old, he really did an awesome job with his session. He had to take a few feeding breaks, but he really did extremely well with it. He certainly surprised me, as I generally don’t like to photograph babies past 10 days. 7-10 days of age is the ideal range for photographing newborns as they are still very sleepy and bendable. USUALLY! ;) There are always exceptions, of course.
Wyatt’s dad’s vintage Ninja Turtle bedding was altered and passed down to Wyatt, so his nursery is Ninja Turtles. How sweet! They brought along Donatello, and I got the urge to make Wyatt a little mask to match, though I am not a fan of newborn props covering baby’s eyes, so I opted to keep it above instead.
During the session, when I was trying to get him calm for the detail shots of his feet and hands, etc., I told him not to pee on me, and literally the next second he started peeing! He showed me! :)
