Boston Newborn Photographer – September is for Boys

Was it just me, or was every new baby born in September 2015 a boy? I photographed 3 in one week! So crazy but so fun. I try to do something a little different at each session. Here was one of Aiden when he first arrived, sleepy and comfy on a flokati rug. Seriously, is there anything better than a newborn looking this peaceful? For this shot I placed Aiden in the middle of a little ring of blankets I placed under the rug, and really let him pose himself. Of course, I bumped his head up for comfort, covered his bits, and let him choose where his arms felt the most natural. Actually, every shot I have from this portion, his arms are different. I tried to work with how he felt best, and perfect it for the photo, letting us see his cute tiny little fingers and toes, and giving him that polished non “posed” look. What do you think?
