welcoming first baby {it's a boy!} | rockford illinois newborn photographer

I had been so anxious to hear news from baby Gus' mom about his arrival AND gender. He came after his due date and my hunch that it would be a boy was true! Little Gus was such a peanut, and greeted me with bright eyes. He really like to be wrapped up, so our session incorporated my simple and natural newborn posing where he stayed nice and cozy.

I use light, neutral backdrops and wraps for babies so all you see is just how tiny and perfect they are. We also switched things up with a black backdrop for some more dramatic images of a "womb" pose. I am crazy about these images when converted to black and white, and I think it's a powerful reflection of a great God who forms us perfectly in our mother's womb. Welcome to the world, baby Gus!
