Being the youngest, Hunter lucked into an already established tradition of birthday portraits, so he's the only one who has studio shots of him as a newborn. Don't get me wrong. I love my son to death and think he's absolutely adorable and growing up to become a very handsome young man. But even I know an ugly baby when I see one. Fortunately, he grew out of it within a few weeks. Unfortunately, I'm the kind of mom who loves springing baby pictures on girlfriends.....
He slept through most of the shoot, as most newborns do. Little did we know that his being asleep was the only way we were going to be able to keep him on the right side of the camera.
This is probably my favorite photo of the session. It's always amazing to remember just how tiny he was when he was born. The hardest part of taking this shot was timing the picture for when he'd dozed back off as opposed to starting awake everytime Steve moved.
