Only 4 days old

I shared this family with you right before Christmas.  They were expecting baby boy #2 shortly after the holidays.  Sure enough, baby Alan arrived on December 30th…right before the new year.  Mom had Dad call me from the hospital to schedule a newborn session.  That's a first for me! I guess they took me seriously when I said we needed to get the newborn session done in that first 2 weeks of life.  This is I think the youngest baby I've photographed.  He was absolutely tiny and adorable. 

I met them at their house that afternoon.  We decided to use one of his new blankets instead of one that I brought.  Well, before we could get any shots, he pooped all over the blanket.  So mom picked up him while I changed the set up.  While she was holding him he pooped on her pants as well!  Then later on during the session he pooped on my blanket, but I just photoshopped it out…we were running out of options!   When mom finally got him in a milk coma, we were good to go!

Big brother Matthew was so sweet with Alan.  I just love the shot of Matthew telling us to "shhhh".  He touches his nose instead of his lips, how precious is that!  After we were done inside, we ventured out to the front yard for a family shot.  I just loved all the leaves they had in their yard, it actually looked like fall (hard to find in Florida!).
