Stephanie and Dean brought their adorable new baby boy, Ryder, into the studio for his “newborn” session last weekend. He is absolutely the sweetest thing! He came in sleeping and stayed that way until we messed with him enough to wake him up. Once he woke up, he decided he didn’t want to miss anything so he stayed awake until the very end of the session. He is so sweet while sleeping and so cute while awake – I had a blast photographing him! And his parents are pretty adorable too! I’ve known Stephanie for a few years now as we’ve belonged to a few of the same groups (Durango Business Women’s Idea Exchange, for example). So when she called me to ask about our Baby Plan, I was very excited! Ryder was almost a month old by the time we got him into the studio, so stay tuned for some fun sessions that will replace the maternity and newborn sessions included in the Baby Plan. In the meantime, I hope you love these few of my faves from Ryder’s first professional portrait session!
