Jace- The First Session

Newborns (and babies in general) are tough subjects. Nothing for it, and they are adorable so we persevere. Jace is no different.

I warn parents that if they want "naked as the day they were born" baby shots, be prepared to get wet. Thats a very nice way of putting it and oh-so-true. At least Mindy was a good sport about it. Jace most certainly earned his "automatic sprinkler baby" every way possible. I guess at a mere six days old, thats really all you have in your arsenal of defenses. Either way, it provided some comedic relief for the session.

It was an uphill battle with this session, the little guy is so curious about what is going on around him, that he stayed awake and pretty active the whole time. With newborns and little ones, they pretty much run the show and dictate the way the session goes. We are going to try again very soon with a hopefully more tuckered out baby for some of the other very sweet shots we had hoped to get done.

In the mean time, here are a few photos from this first session of the very cute, very sweet, very awake baby Jace. As always, if you click the photos the full web sized version will open to view. I don't know why, but blogger artifacts them a little bit.

Beautiful isn't he? Mindy and Steven are going to have to beat girls off of him with a stick in a few short years!

Steven's mother showed me some photos of him as a little guy, and really, they could be body doubles. Jace looks exactly like him!

Hopefully we will have some more goodies coming soon- including some pictures with mom and dad if we are lucky! I can't wait to see this kid grow- hes so dang cute!
