Last week I shared about the lovely Ballington Family. They first contacted me for a newborn session, but because of the COVID lockdown in Arizona, I couldn’t shoot their newborn session. So, they decided to do a three-month session. I love shooting three-month sessions. Babies are awake, alert, and are generally full of smiles. Carter was definitely full of smiles. His little face was a bright smile almost the entire session. He didn’t fuss or cry, simply smiled, looked around, kicked his legs, and was the happiest baby! He also had the cutest hair to match his smile. I have never had so many comments on how darling his hair was after posting to social media. Everyone was captured by little Carter’s cuteness.
Three-month sessions usually consist of tummy poses and back poses since three-month olds can’t hold themselves up. We began with tummy poses. I picked simple colors of blue, green, and yellow. We began with blue, because his parents brought a special handmade airplane toy. Blue was my favorite for Carter, because of his brilliant blue eyes. Not always does blue complement someone with blue eyes, but this certainly did for Carter. His eyes were captivating in the photos. I took a few photos in a monogrammed onesie mom brought, and then switched to naked, with diaper, poses. Green and yellow followed the blue with continued smiles, then I switched him to his back.
We finished with Carter on a brown flokati, and a cream fur rug. The fur rug in his monogrammed onesie was another of my favorite sets. Again the blue was perfect for him, and the cream background beautifully displayed his full head of hair. The airplane image in his onesie was specially made, because we had planned for an airplane theme during his newborn session.
