This little guy was so sweet! He is the son of a college friend of mine that recently moved back to Iowa. Good ol’ Iowa! *wink*
Anyhow, his momma has been talking with me about newborn photos and capturing their soon-to-be-born second child’s first year. She mentioned wanting to do some individual portraits of Quentin at the newborn/family session and I suggested maybe that it would be a bit too much to do all at once. I told her I could do it, but maybe it would be less stressful for her if we did Quentin’s ahead of time, so we could focus more on the baby at the newborn session. Luckily, she wholeheartedly agreed to the idea.
Looking at the proofs now, I’m so glad I suggested it. He really had a fun time at the session and got to have all the attention focused on him. (Lord knows he won’t be quite so lucky after the baby arrives!)
I loved the cute little outfits they chose for his session, and I had the perfect chairs/props to bring the look to perfection. Including a John Deere riding tractor!
Another little perk of doing it ahead of time is that it turned into a mini maternity session too. Doesn’t she just have the most beautiful pregnant glow!? I love the silhouette of her lifting up Quentin and you can see her round little belly. I can’t wait to meet Quentin’s younger brother/sister!
