Loyal blog readers will remember the portraits I take semi-annually of Madison. Well, Madison’s mom Kristen has a cousin (Jody) who has admired the portraits I have done of Madison in the past. So when Jody was expecting her first baby, Kristen immediately came to me with the idea of giving Jody a gift certificate for a portrait session of their newborn.
I was so excited to meet Jody’s beautiful son, Jackson – he did not disappoint! Jackson was happy the whole time, smiling, looking right into the camera! Jackson is a natural. When he is gracing the covers of all the baby magazines someday, just remember where you saw him first. 🙂
We were lucky to have a bright naturally-lit area to photograph. I try to shoot only with natural, available light whenever possible. Flashes and newborns do not mix! We had an overcast day and a location next to the window. Diffused light, on an overcast day, is actually the perfect kind of light, photographically speaking.
Thanks again Jody and Jesse – I had a great time!
