Meet John Mark Whiddon- the first baby of my dear friends Colin and Sofia. I couldn’t wait to photograph this little guy since I met him the day after he was born. Here this little Asian/Caucasian halfling is 2 weeks! When I got to their house I was disappointed with the available light; however, we made it work with a window and some lamps. All in all I think it worked out pretty well given what we had to work with.
John Mark had been a little fussy the past few days so his Mom was worried about how well he’d do with the shoot. We turned the heat up, put on some soothing whale noises and he went right to sleep, seemingly very comfortable in the funniest positions that his Dad helped me get him into. Thanks for being such a trooper for two hours John Mark! This newborn shoot is really too cute for words! Can’t wait to do this family’s portraits in the fall!
