Xander | Middle Tennessee Newborn Photographer {frogs and faeries}

Oh, what a sweet boy! I have been waiting on this little one to arrive as his parents purchased the Mommy and Me package. Click here for the awesome maternity session we had a few weeks back. Xander made his debut a bit early at 37 weeks, but weighed in at 8 lbs! He is one gorgeous baby. Lots of hair - even some still on his back and shoulders! He was also very well behaved - only peeing on me once! I'll take that any day over poo. :)

Again, this is a HUGE showcase! I just couldn't narrow it down any further. Mom and Dad were so nice to let me try anything I wanted with Xander, and I was able to capture such a variety of images. I had bought several new props with this session in mind, and they definitely did not disappoint!

After I left Xander's, I headed on over to Providence MarketPlace to browse around in JoAnn's and Home Goods. Mom - I found you the cutest little gift there! I can't wait to give it to you. When I saw it, I knew that I just couldn't resist! Here's one hint - it totally matches your dining room! :)

Sweet, sweet boy . . .


Oh, how I love this blanket!

One of the new props:

and another one:





Dad is a coach at Mt. Juliet High School and brought all of these cool helmets. I think Xander would have been content to sleep all day in one!

I knitted this pouch in hopes of hanging Baby Xander in it, but I made the pouch part too deep. Even though it didn't turn out quite how I had planned, I just love the texture of the pouch against his soft skin. For any of you that really know me, you're probably in shock right now (especially my Mom!) I even sewed on that button all by myself, Mama! While I was at JoAnn's I bought some new yarn to make another one for my next newborn session on Friday. Can't wait to try again!


And I just had to post one of Mom and Dad's first baby:

I hope you all enjoyed these as much as I did! Mom and Dad, I can't wait for you to see them all!

For those of you that have sessions completed and in the editing stage, it won't be long now. I have my first wedding(!) on Saturday, so I'm going to work really hard to get all of my current session proofed before then.

Have a great night everyone!

I can totally see why you had a hard time narrowing down images for the blog! Good luck to mom and dad trying to choose as well. I think I'd have to have an album with all of them... What a precious little man. Those cheeks are to die for.
