Baby Tegan

All newborns sessions are just wonderful. Those little fingers, tiny toes, chubby cheeks... I love it all. This session was especially marvelous, though, because little Tegan is my nephew! Before too long, I know my Kaden and baby Tegan will be BFFs ;). Here are some favorites from a session I shot for them the other day:

Smiling at dad to get us started

Photos of a sleeping newborn are just precious, in my opinion, and since newborns sleep so often, those photos aren't usually hard to come by. Usually...
When I saw Tegan yawning, I knew a nap was coming soon

but he decided to stay awake for a while longer

And when his eyelids got so heavy, I thought for sure it was off to dreamland for Tegan

But he was just faking me out ;)

So we rolled with it :). He's awfully cute when he's awake anyway, so I just shot away

Gotta love those baby bottoms

And so after almost two hours, Tegan finall gave in, after some rocking from mom, and fell asleep in his basinet. He smirked just a bit, and I thought he might be faking me out again...

But he was asleep for real this time (Jon grabbed this shot because I was just too short to get high enough, even when standing on a chair. I love it that my assistant/husband is such a great man :) ).
