Oh my lanta, this sweet baby boy was the most beautiful baby boy ever. I know, I know, I say that every time I get to document a newborn baby, but seriously. Have you seen a more gorgeous boy? Thankfully this was from a few weeks back, when the world was simpler and I could still help touch and hold this sweet baby boy! The bonus of the most perfect spring weather is being able to be an outdoor Lakeland newborn photographer. This little guy all wrapped up snug was made for the little wooden bowl we placed him in so charmingly. I wish I had more of a pull back of the location because the best part of being outoors is you don’t need much space. You just need some outdoor interest, like trees, grasses and leaves for texture and of course, that beautiful natural light.
I absolutely love that this mama picked this shot below as a lovely canvas gallery wrap as well. The blues and greens pop so nicely with his beautiful skin. And those little hands, my mama heart bursts!
I also loved that this first time mama wanted to document breastfeeding at her session, too. It really does fly by, and it is such a journey for so many mamas that it is just beautiful to capture. These quiet newborn moments are part of the journey for many moms, so why not incorporate a few moments of this bond into your session, too.
The image below with the slightes little baby smirk was one of my favorite shots from the outdoor Lakeland newborn photographer session, too. I love the layers of gray upon gray and the pop of green bokeh from the grasses and leaves behind him. So natural and so sweet!
I also loved this set up in his own “milk monster” onesie! I love the white and creams with this textured soft basket among the leaves and trees. It doesn’t have to be super fussy, just laying a baby in a basket and getting multiple angles and you have the most darling outdoor newborn photos ever, right?
