I usually have a vision of the type of images I want to take before I begin a photo session. But with a newborn session I know to expect the unexpected and roll with the personality of the baby.
Baby Paxton was barely two weeks but he definitely knew that swaddling was not his thing, which eliminated most of the images I envisioned. So I followed Paxton's lead and along with his amazing parents we were able to capture life in the Walton home.
I love photographing hands-on dads so I thought Brian did a great job in changing a fussy Paxton who obviously did not like it. Of course, as a die-hard bibliophile I immediately knew when I walked into their home that I would incorporate some of the books I saw on their bookshelves.
Mad love to Brian, Laura, and Paxton Walton for inviting me to photograph your narrative moments showing real life in your lovely home!
I didn't notice the beautiful yellow wall in their building entrance until Laura brought me out there. Okay hi, photographer's heaven right there!
