Kansas City newborn & family photography session: Baby Elliot & Ashlyn

This session was a special one for me… it is the first newborn BOY that I’ve photographed. I can’t believe it myself that it took this long. But wow….I couldn’t have asked for a better lil’ guy to start out with. 

HIs mom contacted me a few months ago and was adamant about getting one photo in particular at the request of her 4-yr-old daughter, Ashlyn. It was the teacup shot. 

I had no prob getting that prop out when they came all the way from Columbia for the photo shoot at my home here in Kansas City. So we’ll start with that one… to introduce Elliot–with a head full of glorious hair at the age of 12 days old! When born, he weighed in at 20.5 inches, 7lbs 5oz. 🙂

If he’s anything like his sister, he will be ornery, precocious and darling to work with. 🙂 This is Ashlyn, who was quite the helper for the shoot.

Dont’ be fooled by those angelic smiles. She can be a little squirt. She can even sing AND dance to rap songs!!!

Ok, so back to Elliot for awhile. With a hint of a smile….

I hunted down this baby bonnet because E’s room is decorated in airplanes.

And we think the scale might be off a bit…or maybe the blanket he’s lying on is heavy. 😉

Two of my faves…just because he looks so tuckered out…and peaceful.

Again, we focus on Ashlyn, who by the way, kept reapplying her “lip gloss” throughout the shoot. ANDDDDD…she took the suggestion of a photographer (who shall remain nameless) and applied some of the lovely glittery lip goo to her daddy. He LOVED IT.

Such a big sister!! I kept asking if I could trade things for her baby brother. I offered a blanket. She said NO. And then she informed me I don’t need Elliot because I have a husband and Kramer. hahaha

A fave…mostly because Patrick did this without being asked. In fact, he wasn’t supposed to even be in the frame. haha
