Henry’s Newborn Photos

Newborn Photo Shoot

Newborn Photo ShootI’m so, so glad we decided to have some photos taken of Henry when he was super fresh. We debated, because, ya know, I have a camera and I could probably do it and blah blah. But sometimes when you’re the one who’s always taking the pictures you just want to sit back and relax and let someone else be behind the lens for a while. That, and I knew I wanted some photos of us as a family.

So we asked our new friend Scot Woodman if he would be willing to come take photos of us at home, just kind of hanging out. We didn’t want anything super styled or any big production. Just a normal day. And Scot knocked it out of the park. These photos feel just like us, and they feel just like those first days when we brought Henry home and would just hang out all day, staring at him and each other.

I have to tell you, I was kind of stressed out about the newborn photo shoot thing. What if he cried the whole time? What if he pooped everywhere? But Hankie was a champ (did I tell you we call him Hank sometimes?) and just fussed for a little bit at the end. We’re laughing in that photo below because he had started to cry and we were trying to just hide his face in my chest. Poor kid.

It’s kind of bonkers, because these were taken when he was three weeks old — he’s about seven weeks now and he looks enormous in my eyes. He’s still so new but it’s all relative, I suppose. I love that we’ll always have these snaps from when he was such a freshie. Hope you like the little peek at our little dude! xoxo

  1. How sweet are these! I love what you said about doing a session that more like hanging out than a big productions. That’s my favorite thing when it comes to newborn/baby/family photos. It’s so much more natural and kids feel more comfortable and less distracted because they’re in their own home instead of at a park or something! Beautiful photos of your little family!

  2. He’s so beautiful, friend! Also, he’s a super lucky little dude to have two exceptionally cool parents. Feeling all kinds of warm fuzzy things and sending lots of love! xo

  3. Such lovely photos! What a cutie pie he is. I remember when we got our daughters newborn photos done, I was a hot mess and was leaking milk everywhere and had no idea what I was doing!

  4. They are so cute. You shouldn’t worry about little Henry. All are real and cute, even when he poo or pee. Baby cab always bring expectation for future.
    I’m Chinese. I have a baby boy 5 months old. Reading your article remind me that I should ask a photographer to take some nice pics for my little cute. Now we are taking some casual photos with phone.
