Sweet little Brady arrived two weeks early, and I must say, he was a dream baby! Brady stayed awake all throughout his newborn session. Ashley and Dave, the new parents were incredibly happy and over the moon to have their baby home. While taking solo photos of Brady, I would look up and see both the parents simply smiling at Brady. I was there for a little over two hours and there was not one moment when they were not obsessing over their beautiful creation. It was the sweetest thing ever! Rudy, their family dog, certainly stole the show with his “Big Brother” bandana. I mean, can this get ANY cuter?
In addition to that, between outfit changes, feedings and different poses, both the parents would hover over the baby to snap a quick photo on their phone. This just goes to show how excited they are for this new phase in their life. They are such a sweet family, and this shines through their photos. Like every new set of parents who are learning to adjust to a new schedule, Dave and Ashley were too. Ashley had gotten only three hours of sleep the night before I came and she somehow still managed to look gorgeous as ever throughout their entire session! Dave brought some cute baby sized Warriors gear to use as props for the session. Brady rocked the every bit of it, especially the trophy in his hand – it seemed as though he was born a champion!
This boy is going to do big things!
