Gorgeous little Skylar Reign came in for her newborn session this week. And guess how old? 8 weeks! You would absolutely never know she was 8 weeks old. Her parents Jodi and Hayden were keen on using lots of purple throughout her session, so we went through all the props, and selected some gorgeous things to use, in shades of purple, including a purple backdrop for the family photos!
At 8 weeks old, most babies are having a lot more awake time, and though Skylar Reign had a lot more awake time in her session than a 10 day old, she also had plenty of small catnaps, as she fell asleep at frequent intervals, allowing me to get those gorgeous, sleepy, snuggly shots we are all used to seeing. She was amazing! I took the opportunity to capture her gorgeous little features. Look at those eyelashes. And those little lips! Be still me beating heart!
And just as easily as she fell asleep, she would also wake easily, so when I wanted to adjust something in her gorgeous setups, she would look at me with those gorgeous big brown eyes of hers. She definitely has Jodi’s eyes! I took the opportunity to snap away. How could you not love this little face looking up at you!?
Newborn sessions are usually conducted at 2 weeks of age or under, but it is entirely possible to do it when they’re older! Skylar Reign is a testament to that. At 8 weeks old, her images are just as gorgeous as any other session, and Jodi and Hayden will have something to cherish forever.
