An NYC newborn session with the newest man in the Downtown District

Most of the time I meet new clients by email and it’s not until session that we meet in person. But on this occasion, I spoke to mom and dad over the phone first. I knew we’d hit it off when they started the call by saying they wanted to chat first to make sure I didn’t have two heads! We all burst out laughing and the rest of the conversation was just as easygoing. But putting all jokes aside, it’s great when you meet a family who are so invested in their family photos that they want to do a mini-interview with you first – the images mean a great deal to them and they clearly wanted to find the right fit. So I had my fingers crossed after our call that I would hear from them. I subsequently learned these two beautiful souls are also creatives, but of the film-variety. So the fact that they chose me was a compliment that went straight to my heart. And meeting beautiful Baby K at their Downtown Manhattan abode was just icing on the cake (to see another recent in-home newborn session, view this blog post). You can tell this guy is going to be a stunner – he had extra gorgeous baby skin and big curious brown eyes – and boy is this little guy lucky to have such loving parents. There was loads of love and adoration oozing out of their apartment, and I feel lucky to have captured a small glimpse of it. It's fair to say adorable Baby K has given me a huge dose of baby fever
