As a newborn photographer, it was always the rule to capture newborn photos within the first ten days of the baby’s birth, for reasons such as they’re sleepier, are easy to pose, and adorably tiny! But in the case of this little munchkin, his moment in the spotlight occurred while he was three weeks old. Despite my expectations that baby Masa would be awake for the entire session, instead, he surprised me by sleeping the entire two hours, allowing me to capture so many beautiful restful images! Amazing! Now I have a whole new perspective on newborn photography, meaning, there really are no rules, just suggestions to follow or bend. Every baby is different and unique from the last and I never know what to expect when I meet them for the first time!
I’m truly in love with this adorable little boy and his wonderful family. Since our session together, they’ve moved back to Japan; having come to Canada initially for Masa’s grand entrance to the world, and for some much-appreciated help from Grandma during his first few weeks. Have fun growing up in Japan, Baby Masa and I hope to kiss your chubby cheeks again in the future!
