Introducing my very own new little bundle of joy! Griffin James was born on March 16th at 5:59pm. He weighed in at 7 lbs, 12 oz and was 20.75″ long! It has taken me forever to get his images edited (as I worked on them around my clients’ shoots), but I’m finally done! Oh, and did I mention that it took three separate visits out to the studio? The first shoot was taken at only 3 days old! But after about 30 minutes of shooting, he decided he was awake- wide awake- with no chance of going back to sleep! (Only my child, right?!)
So then came round two at six days old. Dad had requested some props and this shoot started out promising! It was about 9 o’clock at night (one of the reasons I LOVE shooting with lights) and entirely dark outside. I’m not sure if this had anything to do with it, or just added to the drama, but we lost power…twice! For some crazy reason I blew the fuse twice during the session, so we called it quits. (Incidentally, this has never happened before and hasn’t happened since!)
Round three: 17 days old. Now I probably wouldn’t have even taken Griffin back into the studio this late, but my mom had whipped up the most adorable elephant hat for him and I couldn’t miss out on that picture! I had just finished a marathon of sessions and came into the house to find Griffin totally passed out on the hubs. I still had the studio set up from the last newborn, so I scooped him up and headed back to the studio. While he was posed so perfectly and apparently happy, I threw a couple more hats on just for fun!
