I have such a soft spot for baby boys. I have a little boy myself so it’s so heartwarming for me to have a little boy in my studio because it makes me think of the birth of my little bug. Matthew came to my studio so new and fresh to the world.
Working in Jacksonville, NC as a Newborn Photographer I get to see a lot of new military born babies. Camp Lejeune being so close; I am always trying to incorporate the innocence that the Marines and Sailors protect each and everyday is something I look forward to. So, I came up with this. The love of our Nation protecting the innocent. It is by far one of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken. Matthew was a dream to have in my studio. He was so calm and sweet; and gave me the most adorable smiles! He just melted my heart from the first moment I got to wrap him up and focus directly on him.
His Mom even came prepared with this absolutely ADORABLE apple bonnet!
Matthew also was a blessing for me. I had just gotten my first Christmas Prop and I was so thrilled to be able to use it during his session. He was simply perfect for it. I used his photo in all of my Christmas ads AND his photo was featured with a prop company as he was wearing their beautiful holiday bonnet!
I’m definitely looking forward to having him come back to see me when he’s older and growing big and strong. I hope he and his family have a very Happy Christmas and many blessings in the New Year!
