Beautiful Boy | Maine Newborn Photographer

I know beautiful isn’t a typical word used to describe boys.  But I feel like I can get away with it referencing a newborn baby boy.  Especially one this adorable and big and round and squishy and sleepy and …. I digress.ScharnBLOG-6

We had a big storm forecasted right around this shoot date.  I was praying that it would NOT fall on a scheduled shoot because we were so booked that there was really no other available dates to shuffle around! Well, I do believe that God cares about even the small details of our lives and once again, He was good.  The storm landed on a Thursday… right between two shoots and all was well!  See, even this guy was happy about it!ScharnBLOG-4

Additionally, I had just received a package of newborn bonnets and wraps that I had ordered a while back from my favorite vendor, Merrieknit.  Opening those is like Christmas morning for me!  All three bonnets in these next shots are from her.  I just love them don’t you!?ScharnBLOG-3



Sometimes clients come in and they’ve seen a particular pose they like.  Baby willing I’ll always do my best to try to recreate it.  Mama mentioned this one below with the bow tie.  Can I tell you how many times I’ve done this post before?… ONE, one time.  I had done it because the little guy was just so sleepy and relaxed and floppy with his arms that it just sort of happened.  But guess what?  This handsome little dude was the same way and we got the shot!  It was meant to be. Love when those things work out!
