Hours-old Newborn Session on Film | Utah County Baby Photographer

When I left for this hours-old session, the sun was so bright I was worried I’d have too much light in the room. Of course by the time I got in the room, the sun had gone behind a cloud, and we had very little light! I really wanted to do this whole session on film, so went for it anyway. I took out my digital to get a few as well, and in the end, I still loved the film shots the best. But it was easy with this beautiful (gigantic!) babe and family! And since film is magical, we still got awesome results in a less than ideal situation.

Oh, don't you love with when a new baby has giant amounts of soft fluffy hair? It's even better when they also have gorgeous blue eyes. I love doing baby sessions in the home, especially when there's a little sibling around. They feel so comfortable there and it just feels more like playtime than a session. What in the world that the big bro ALSO had a gorgeous head of curly hair! I was in details heaven here folks.

Hours-old sessions are an absolute favorite of mine. I just can't get over those first few moments of life when and the connection when the mom is connecting with this new life and discovering all those little details of her newborn baby. It's such a privilege to be there and capture it.

There's just really nothing better than getting the call that there's a fresh hours-old baby that needs someone to come snuggle him and take some pictures (in that order). This little boy was mom's 7th, and sure she's a pro when it comes to babies, but that new crazy influx of love you feel when you cuddle this new little life never gets old. It was so wonderful to watch her just snuggle and talk about this newborn person with such adoration. And there's just really nothing more beautiful than a mom holding her new babe, right? I can never just get photos of the baby without the mom, because I know they'll be inseparable for a good year, and this is just the beginning.
