Meet sweet Mr. Mazin! This little guy is the little one of a women I attended high school with, whom I later in life reconnected with when I photographed her wedding and now have had the honor of photographing her son. Mazin entered this world several weeks early, causing him to spend some much needed time at the hospital. 5 weeks later, when he was ready for his photo debut, he had grown to the perfect size and weight to fit into all my cute stuff! Many photographers request newborn photos to be taken at under 2 weeks old. The reason is that their little bodies still feel natural being contorted into super cute and often unnatural looking poses. Following those two weeks, it quickly becomes more difficult and sometimes even impossible to achieve these poses. Mazin was a trooper. This was only the second time I’ve been able to get a babe of this age to achieve some of these poses. We didn’t quite get 100% there in some of these poses, his back no longer twisted enough to have his feet and elbows touch but it still turned out awful cute.
