The Easiest Newborn-EVER! | Wichita Newborn Photography

It's funny how small the world is, isn't it? I rely solely on word-of-mouth advertising. I am a small photographer (at the moment) and I just don't have a budget for lots of splashy ad pages. Because of the nature of newborn photography, it's just really neat to have friends of friends of past clients book me for a session. First one baby, then another, then another, until we've grown a family tree of interconnected babies who grow up in front of my lens. I love that organic process. It's one of my favorite parts of Breathtaking. Not to say that I don't enjoy fresh clients who have no prior connection, either. ;) They can just start their own "client tree". :)

Today was one of those days that I got to meet another baby related to my friend Chloe, who is the 'face' of Breathtaking. This little baby boy was the. easiest. baby. ever. Literally the most easily posable, most laid back, sleepiest baby I've ever, ever, ever shot. A total delight. I'm afraid that his parents are going to have a heck of a time choosing their final images from the LOAD we took! I spent 3 hours just shooting. The kid only took ONE break.

Ok, enough of my blabbering. I know you only log on to see the cute babies. ;)

Yum? Yes? More? Ok......

Dude! Does it get any better than that? Feet up by face, smooshy sweet newborn baby, COMPLETELY asleep! A newborn photographer's dream I tell ya.....

I did. not. pose. those. hands.

oh my. tiny baby heiny.

That's Mama, smiling in the background. And goodness she has a lot to smile about. Enjoy. :)
