I took photos of this adorable newborn and his family last weekend. I have taken photos of his big sister before and have been looking forward to meeting this little guy. He was so sweet and cooperative – not to mention gorgeous! I have never seen such beautiful newborn baby skin before! For this newborn shoot, I used some fun props. I bought some old barn wood to use as a backdrop. Then I went shopping looking for a new basket to lay a sleeping baby in and found this awesome galvanized laundry tub. Hang a few newborn onesies with old fashion clothespins, and voila! A gorgeous backdrop that tells the story of the first several weeks of having a newborn – laundry, laundry and more laundry!
