Baby Mason | Uniontown, OH Newborn Photography

Baby Mason in DaddyBaby Mason was 7 days new when his family came for their newborn portrait session.  His parents had opted to wait and learn their baby’s gender until the day of his birth, so planning this session was a fun challenge.  We had ideas ready for either a girl or a boy baby.

Mason’s middle name is in honor of his Grandpa and Great-Grandpa whose favorite hobby was fishing. His mom told me that if they were having a boy, she would love to incorporate fishing into the baby’s newborn session, somehow.  When I got the “It’s a boy!” message, I was excited to carry out this idea for her.

I sewed the little fishing hat and fish by hand with material I have been hoarding saving. We are fortunate to have lots of old trees out back, and there always seems to be plenty of sticks laying around out there.  Add a little jute twine and I had an instant fishing pole!  Isn’t he cute?!

Sleepy Baby {Uniontown, Ohio Newborn Photography}

Can I be honest with you for just a second?  I love newborn photography best of all!  My newborn sessions are actually more physically challenging than my family or senior sessions (there’s a lot of kneeling and it’s 80+ degrees in here) , but capturing these little faces is SO worth it.

And if I’m being super honest, I would tell you that I really do this job for the snuggles!  My kids are so big now and the youngest hasn’t fit on my lap for years.:( So every time a family brings a new baby for portraits, it is just a little piece of Heaven here on earth.

Snow Day Photo Session {Akron Family Photography}

Winter Family Portrait Session in the Snow with Adrienne Zwart Photography, Akron Family PhotographerBack in August, Dr. Spoonhower told me that he and his wife really wanted to do their portrait session in the snow this year and wondered how that would work. “Oh, that’s easy,” I told him.  “I create a list of people who request wintry photo sessions and when we get a good snow, I start down the list to see who is available.”  I told him to expect a call as early as November.

We then had the warmest winter we have seen in years here in Northeast Ohio. :) By the end of January, I had pretty much given up that we were going to have suitable snow for a wintry portrait session.  And then we had the most glorious snowfall the second week in February.  The kids had a snow day, mom had the day off and he was able to leave work a bit early so we could catch the last bit of daylight.  As a bonus, it was wasn’t bitterly cold and windy outside!

Baby Tenley – 8 Days Old {Akron, OH Newborn Photography}

Tenley - 8 Day Old Newborn Session by  Adrienne Zwart Photography, newborn photographer in Akron and Canton Ohio

Little Miss Tenley came to see me last May.  She was such a tiny and sweet baby!  How could I have missed sharing her newborn session with you all?  Well, I blame graduation party preparation!  I think when my next child graduates (which is fortunately still three and a half years away) I will take the month of May off.  And maybe the first week of June, too. 😉

But without further delay, here are some of my favorites from Tenley’s newborn photo session.

Since it was spring, I wanted to incorporate some beautiful soft colors into this session.  Most of my props and backdrops are neutral, so adding color with wraps and hats or headbands is really easy.  (I prefer to use the wraps rather than store-purchased clothing which usually a little too big and doesn’t fit well.  I also have some handmade outfits that are perfect for newborns.)Tenley - 8 Day Old Newborn Session by  Adrienne Zwart Photography, newborn photographer in Akron and Canton Ohio
