Hold on to your hats! You are about to be hit with a whole lot of cuteness. Remarkable 10-day-old baby boy, Eli, knows how to work the camera.
Just check out this wink!
I had the pleasure of photographing Eli at just 10 days fresh. A sweetly willing subject, he gave me a good amount of sleepy time, but woke up long enough at the end for some great awake shots.
Interesting Newborn Photography Info: If you are a new or expectant parent searching for a newborn photographer in Maryland, you may be wondering why you don’t find many photos of newborn babies with their eyes open. Well, there are actually two reasons for this. The first is that, as you will soon find out, most newborn babies sleep most of the time. They sleep through just about anything, including a photo session. A skilled newborn photographer puts baby’s safety and comfort above all else. These cozy sets are ideal for these tiny sleepyheads and they take full advantage of the moments. The second reason is that newborn babies have terrible vision. Until about one month of age, they are unable to track or focus on objects. When they see anything in high contrast, say a black camera in an otherwise light area, they may attempt to focus on that spot and often end up completely cross-eyed. Although, of course, these little out-of-focus folks are still completely adorable, parents usually prefer the simple sleepy poses such as the one below.
