Lincoln James | Pensacola Newborn Lifestyle Photographer
This gorgeous mama is one of my little sister’s OG crew. All thru high school (while I was trying to study) they used our garage for band practice and bathroom as a recording studio…I think I still have their CD lying around somewhere…
But they were friends long before that and such a frequent presence in my house that they might as well have been quadruplets. And after all these years, 4 babies among them and a continent between some of them, they still gather at my parent’s house every chance they get to all be together.
It’s a little surreal to watch 3 of the 4 get married and have babies. I loved getting to meet the newest member of the crew, Lincoln, at his newborn session. He surprised everyone by making his appearance a whole month early, but Renee was content to leave his newborn session as scheduled for the weeks after his due date. I love that. As you may remember, 5-6 weekers are my faves to photograph.
Renee styled her family so perfectly for their session. I loved all of the neutral grey tones in their home and the gold/mustard with the different shades of blue worked so beautifully with the decor. Even their pup, Ruby, seemed to blend perfectly. I that she chose to put Lincoln in a simple white onesie and use a Copper Pearl swaddle blanket set to bring in color.
Steve had to make an appearance at work and couldn’t hang around an model all day, so we started with family shots and Daddy/Son shots so that he could head out. I have to admit, it was really lovely to have alone time to work with Renee and baby. It isn’t often that I get to capture a mother/baby pair totally alone. There is a different energy in the quiet intimacy between mom and baby and the pictures immediately reflected the shift in the mood.
Well, it was really Mom, baby, and Ruby…who think’s she’s the mom.
Do you have a pup that has taken on the roll of secondary mama to your baby? I’m not much of a dog person (or pet person at all), but who’s heart strings wouldn’t be tugged on by a dog intent on watching over her boy?
