Last month I had the privilege of photographing this little peanut for a newborn session at home with his parents, Christina and Travis. Christina was given a gift certificate for this session at her shower over the winter and I’ve been so excited to meet all of them!
Charlie’s name was inspired by a trip that Christina and Travis had taken to Boston after staying at the historic Omni Hotel, which is rumored to be haunted by the ghost of Charles Dickens. It also happens to be a common name on Travis’ side of the family.
Travis is Native American and he and Christina wanted to include some elements of that history into this session. We played with many of the dream catchers they had decorating the walls of their home. Turns out they make great mobiles!
Charlie was the squishiest, most snuggly baby and oddly had a lot of personality for being so new to the world. He’d already earned many nicknames from his parents including, my favorite, “Charlie-bones”. Apparently he really enjoyed the newest Bone Thugs documentary on Netflix.
Thank you so much for sharing these moments with me. I loved spending the day with all of you!
