Dax came to see me at my Edwardsville newborn photography studio to capture some sweet images! He was 6 weeks old, and cute as could be. I last saw him when he was brand new, for his Mercy Hospital Fresh 48 photo session. It’s always mind blowing to me how much babies change in such a short amount of time! He had grown for sure, but one thing that hadn’t changed was his facial expressions! If you go back and look at his Fresh 48 session, you can see that he is making some of the exact same faces in these newborn photos!
I got to work with Dax’s family when big brother Vaelin was born. I wasn’t able to be their birth photographer this time due to the pandemic and restrictions. I’m not really offering birth photography anymore anyway, due to difficulty with having a family and being on call. It makes me really sad to say that, because births were always so close to my heart! They’re amazing to experience with my clients, and I love capturing those moments! However, for now, at this stage of my l life, Fresh 48 is what I can offer. Of course, I would have made an exception for these wonderful clients, but it was not meant to be. Most hospitals are now allowing Fresh 48 photography, so that is great! However, everything is up in the air right now, as we all know.
Anyway, back to Dax – he and Vaelin are both so adorable! Dax has the perfect skin (no baby acne outbreaks here!), and the perfect eyelashes, as you’ll see in the images below.
