Xander {12 days new} – Newborn Photography, Richmond, VA

Oh Xander!  Oh my. what a fun family!  What a crazy session!

Little kids and new little brothers together are always an adorable moment.   Even when the tend to involve more poking and running, than sweet kisses.  Newborn Xander and his big brother Nikko were no exception.   Adorable little poking… because that’s what brothers do.

Newborn Xander was one of the most finicky little ones I have ever had the pleasure to work with in one of my newborn photography sessions. He startled so easily (reminding me of my own little boys).  So I had to be so careful about posing him and adding props and changing set ups.  He would have none of it.  But we made it work and everything did indeed work out so perfectly.

So I often tell Dad’s that they will get pee’d on.  And often they do.  This has to be one of my favorite studio moments caught on camera.  Xander sharing with his Dad.  The outtake is fantastic.  The real pictures – a perfect moment of Daddy love!


Although refusing to sleep, moments with Mom were just as sweet.  Newborn Xander is a chunk of perfection.

Such a beautiful family.  I am so glad I got to spend time with them at their newborn session and I hope these pictures provide a lifetime of memories of this time in their lives.
