Everyone, please join me in saying hello to Jade!
Is it just me, or do we seem to have had several little ones lately who just couldn’t wait the full nine months before getting started in the world? Well, Jade has joined their ranks. This little guy decided eight months was plenty of time for mom and dad to get ready, and arrived on the scene a month before his due date. Despite his early arrival, Jade still managed to be a good-sized, chunky baby with amazing rolls!
Isn’t he a cutie pie? I love that soft fuzz of dark hair.
Jade’s mom and dad were given this newborn mini session as a gift from some of my other very generous clients. These new parents were so thankful for such a thoughtful gift that allowed them to get some professional newborn photography of their adorable little boy. The photos turned out great and Jade’s mom and dad were absolutely in love with them!
I can think of few better gifts for a new mom and dad than a newborn photography session. It’s truly a present that will be cherished by the whole family for years to come. If you’re ever stuck on what to get an expectant mother, or if you are the expectant mother wondering what more you could possibly need for baby, check out my gift certificates.
Jade’s newborn photography session was a few weeks before Easter, but that didn’t stop us from playing it up with a bunny rabbit hat. Easter is a season as much as a day, right? Those floppy ears frame Jade’s chubby little cheeks perfectly—I can’t get over how cute he is!
We used green as our accent color for this session, in honor of the beautiful gemstone that Jade shares his name with. I love this picture of him wrapped up in a blanket! Babies are so incredibly flexible! It would kill me to even try to get into that kind of a position, but even though Jade’s toes are just about touching his sweet nose, he looks perfectly content and comfortable. And speaking of toes—aren’t those the best little feet you ever saw? Love ‘em!
We also got this woodsy photograph of the little man wrapped in a soft blanket and chilling out in a hollow tree trunk. He looks pretty comfy there, doesn’t he? I don’t know if a lot of camping is in his future, but if it is I don’t think he’ll have any problem getting back to nature.
It was a pleasure to have this family in my photography studio in Eugene, Oregon. Jade was a sweet little boy, easy to work with, and a great sleeper. It was so much fun to participate in this special gift-giving occasion, and I hope I’ll have the chance to work with Jade and his parents again. I had a wonderful time getting these photographs, and hope you’ve enjoyed them as much as Jade’s mom and dad did!
