Sweet baby Jackson! I had a bunch of Jackson’s (different spellings too!) in 2013 but this sweet babe had the cutest little expressions. From his grump, to his smirky smile and wide eyed stare…he sure brought his A game to the studio last year! He got a little grumpy at the end of the session, which made for a hectic mom/baby portion of the shoot…I could tell mom was disappointed (again I swear babies smell their moms and if they’re hungry – watch out!) ;)…so I asked her to come back in a few days for a super quick mom/baby shoot and it was a complete success!! You’ll see how sweet the photos were towards the bottom of the post…well worth it!! If I find that something does not go well during a session – something that would disappoint me – I have no problem extending myself for my clients so that they get the complete experience. I would never let a client miss out on mom/baby shots…never.
I’ve had the pleasure of photographing him again for his 6 month portraits and he grew into this amazingly sweet and smiley little munchkin!! I can’t wait to photograph him again! Jackson’s mom and I have kept in touch on and off in between his sessions (which reminds me a lunch is due!) and she is such a super great mom and friend. I love the variety of Jackson’s newborn session but with all of the neutral colors. Keeping it neutral is something I sometimes love to really do. It makes for a great set of images and helps when you are creating a wall design of gallery wraps or framed images. Right around the time of his session is when I started including black and white copies for all of my clients. It’s also a super great way to create a cohesive collection of images for albums or even to help mix it up or create that added drama of a certain image. Jackson was an incredible great poser and let me go through the motions of most of my poses that I do. Love him!
