Family Photo's by Smile a Bunch Photography
We had Conner's first photo shoot taken last week, and I'm so excited with the results! One of Paul's friends from high school is a photographer, and she is the one who did our pictures. She was amazing! I couldn't be happier with the pictures! We had her come to our house to take them, both because we don't want to take Conner out in public yet so we can keep him healthy for his heart surgery in 2 weeks, and also because I love the idea of having pictures done in our home, among the things we love and how it adds an intimate touch to the photo's. I was so sad at first when I realized that we wouldn't get to have professional "newborn" pictures done of Conner since he was in the NICU. But I love love love the pictures and the age that he is at to have had them done. He was awake and alert during the session and it was fun to have him captured on camera at this age.
I highly recommend the photographer, and will attach a link to her blog so anyone can have her info to get in touch with her to hire her!
Conner only peed twice during the shoot, and actually was much more cooperative than I had anticipated! I thought he would be really fussy because he doesn't like when he is undressed, especially when it comes to being totally naked! But he was such a sweet heart, enduring 2 hours of being moved around and handled. He didn't even throw up, which I was so surprised about, since he usually throws up when he is moved around too much. I love how the photographer captured Conner's big beautiful eyes, his sweet, sweet face, and the essence of our family dynamic in the photo's.
