Jessica’s little Rainbow Miracle Baby – Jacksonville Newborn Photographer

About a month ago I posted about my trip to the hospital to photograph Jessica’s silhouette baby bump, well here is her precious little boy! He came nearly 3 weeks early weighing in at 3.5 lbs! He made his way out of the hospital and into the studio 3 weeks later, weighing just under 5 lbs, probably the smallest baby I’ve ever photographed!

Here’s a photo Jessica posted on her Facebook page right after he was born:

And here he is in studio, that 1.5 pounds really made a difference!

Jessica’s dad runs the Scottish Highland games and they are very big into their roots. So she brought his kilt. She also brought her dad’s do-rag/head scarf. I used it to wrap up the little guy.

I asked Jessica what her nicknames were for him and she said “Sweet Pea” and “monkey”.

Jessica has wanted to be a mother for a long time. She had lost 5 previous pregnancies, so we def. wanted to include something to do with that. And since there were 5 losses, I did 5 colors in Lelon’s rainbow to represent each baby.

Isn’t that just the sweetest smile?! PINIMAGE

 

I like to take an image or two from each session and add a art effect, leaving the skin of the baby untouched. It makes it look sooo dreamy, which seams perfect for a sleeping baby portrait. PINIMAGE PINIMAGE

I saw this doll house at the flea market awhile back and picked it up and then painted it the night before the shoot to look like the house from Disney’s Up. I want to eventually play with this image more and add more balloons.

With every newborn session I try to do at least one fun or different than requested setup. I’ve had this little Eeyore outfit for awhile. I think it ended up being one of Jessica’s favorites. PINIMAGE

Congrats Jessica on little Lelon, he sure is cute!
