Baby Jacob | Newborn Session

I think this was just my second time doing a maternity, birth/hospital, and newborn session for one family. It has been so much fun and something I would love to do more of! I loved getting to know this family and have a feeling that we'll be having a few play dates in the future! Baby Jacob is such a sweet baby and loved just laying on his tummy. He needed a couple breaks for some milk as he's such a big eater, he was trying to eat his hands the whole time:) Big brother Ben was more into the train table in the next room, rather than photos, but we got a few of him. Enjoy.

{I love Jacob's reddish hair and I have to say that he looks so much like his daddy!}

{Most of the time, his eyes were closed or he did the one eye peek that so many newborns do. I like the shot below with both of his beautiful eyes open. Isn't he gorgeous?!}
{Anita is looking so incredible and although a C-section is no fun (I know), she is recovering well. I can't believe he's a week old already!}
{I would like to call the picture below, on the right, `Peace':)}
{So I wasn't able to get super fantastic photos of the boys together, but here's just a couple of them sitting together.}

{Ending with the one eye peek:) I love that you can see the little sucking blister that newborns get on their upper lip, I just think it's so cute. Okay, everything about a newborn is just so adorable. Congratulations again! Thank you for having me capture the addition of this gorgeous little boy in such a variety of ways. It was wonderful meeting you all!}

The solo shots of Jacob are especially stunning, though they're all excellent! He does look very peaceful in all of them! I hope that's true in reality as well for the sake of mom and dad.

Beautiful photos, Louise! At first I wondered why you wanted to title that one photo "peace" and then I saw his little fingers!
