I don’t think there’s much else in life that melts your heart quite like a cute little baby. I mean, honestly – you just can’t help yourself. And little Conor is no exception.
When my husband mentioned a colleague at work was having a baby and looking for a photographer, I probably screamed a little and then said something like, “yes, yes, yes I will take pictures of her newborn!” And can I tell you that it was one of the most relaxed sessions I’ve ever had!
I’m not at all ashamed to admit I’m always nervous before sessions, especially when it’s a new family. But these guys were so welcoming and relaxed, I felt like I was visiting an old friend! And let’s just talk about Conor for a second – he was so calm! I’m pretty sure he didn’t shed a tear the whole time I was there! In spite of multiple outfit changes, some weird lady taking his picture and being picked up and shifted around every few seconds, he never fussed once.
Conor’s parents, Melissa and Rege, are huge Pittsburgh sports fans and it was really personal to be able to incorporate their love of the Pen’s and Pirates into the session. Not to mention, Melissa is an avid runner and ran throughout her pregnancy! We were able to use some of her marathon medals as props.
I love all these images, I can’t even pick a favorite. It was such a pleasure working with this sweet little family, congratulations again Melissa and Rege!
