Matthew’s Newborn Photography Session

Matthew’s Newborn Photography Session by Fiona Johnson

I love watching my families grow! I did big sister Elizabeth’s newborn photography session 3 years ago. On 3/7/16, Matthew Christopher was born  a week before his estimated due date. Even a week early, he weighed in at a big 8lbs 14oz. I went to the hospital after he was born a did a quick Fresh 48 session and got to know him a little. It’s amazing how even this new, they have likes and dislikes. Matthew likes to keep his hands up close to his face, and his parents said even in all the in-utero scans, his hands were up by his face. Matthew’s newborn photography session was a dream, making my job as a ct newborn photographer look easy.


For Matthew’s Newborn Photography session, he slept like a champ.  He was easy to pose, but he kept wanting to curl up his little fingers and bring his hands to his face. Newborn posing can be tricky when they have such a strong preference to a certain position, but he didn’t mind if I gently moved his hands to where I needed them 🙂

There is nothing cute than a newborn stretching. Matthew has some great stretches between poses during his newborn session.
