What a handsome little guy! Baby Lincoln was only eleven days old the day of his session and was absolutely perfect. He and Baby Leighton (I just posted her Newborn Session last week) are actually friends. Both their parents joke about Lincoln and Leighton getting married one day. You never know, maybe they will be showing these images in a slideshow at their wedding reception. Ha!
He didn't want to miss out on anything that we were doing, so he was awake at the beginning of his session. That was totally okay with me because I was able to get some sweet shots of him and his big brown eyes. He was such a beautiful newborn. He looks so much like his Mama already. Once we wrapped him up, he instantly drifted off to sleep. I love these shots because when he was wrapped up and placed in small baskets, it shows exactly how teeny-tiny he was. His Dad, Josh, had a few items he wanted to incorporate in his session. Josh is a sports fan, so he had a baseball ball and glove, a football, and a basketball. After talking with Josh for a while, I found out he used to play football. I asked if he still had his jerseys, and he smiled and said, "Yes!” The images of Lincoln lying on his daddy's jerseys are some of my favorite. We also used items from Nicole and Josh's wedding and from Lincoln's nursery. I loved this! It makes his images so personal and unique and his session even more special.
I was able to sneak in a few shots of Lincoln with his Mom and Dad and the three of them together. Melt. My. Heart. These images are so darling and I instantly fell in love them. There is something so sweet and tender about a new Mom and Dad holding their newborn child. Nicole is absolutely beautiful and the images of her and Lincoln are just that. They are nothing less than a "picture perfect family".
I hope this won't be the last time that we see Lincoln and his awesome Mom and Dad here on the Steph Layne Photography blog. Until then, here are just a few of my favorite images from Lincoln's Newborn Session. Enjoy and Happy Wednesday!
