Wide eyed and handsome – a mini newborn session with Sophie Crew Photography

Meet this wide eyed and handsome little guy, Akash!  This sweet boy came to the studio for his mini newborn photography session just a few weeks ago, and I just LOVED how much he connected with me during his time awake.  It’s sometimes difficult to photograph newborns when they’re awake, because as photographers, we are waiting for that ‘connection’ to happen, and when baby is so new, it’s hard to get them to look right at you.  Newborns aren’t able to see detail for a while, so getting them to make eye contact with you is a big deal!  During a typical newborn session, baby is awake for a bit, and I take that opportunity to try to get that eye contact.  Usually, I am able to achieve it once, maybe twice.  It takes patience!  However, sweet baby boy, Akash, did not hold back with not only making the most amazing eye contact with me, but the most adorable expressions too!  This little guy is so full of life and so ready to dive right into experiencing it!  I am so excited for this little guy to grow up and enjoy his journey along the way!

Baby Akash arrived at the studio wide awake…
