Baby Gunnar, Newborn Session

It was such a joy to photograph Lauren and Justin’s wedding just a few years ago, and when she emailed me last Fall to tell me they were pregnant and would need newborn pictures soon, I was so excited for them! These two are so easy-going and cheerful, and I knew they would make fantastic parents.

Though I heard little Gunnar wasn’t sleeping so well at night (hopefully that has changed since he was a newborn!) he was such a champ for his newborn session. He slept deeply until he got hungry, and then after his little belly was full he slept some more. :) He did finally wake up by the end of the session, but he was so calm we were able to keep on going with some sweet photos of him under their Christmas tree. Whether he sleeps through the night yet or not, I know he is such a gift that Lauren and Justin cherish with all their hearts— even when they have to make their coffee extra strong in the morning. :)

Welcome to the world, baby Gunnar!
