This beautiful Mamma, Mel, should actually win an award from Chaya Braun Photography: She booked her newborn photographer in December of 2017, and her due date was in July of 2018! Honestly, I absolutely love when my clients book their sessions early in their pregnancy; it gives us time to get to know each other. We can share ideas and inspirational photos, and clarify exactly what kind of vision we’d like to see created!
Mel works as a professional model and actress, and her adorable son Dylan seemed to have inherited her knack for posing! He was a rock star, and slept through the majority of his session, and was happy to peacefully transition from one pose to the next!
Dylan gave us lots of smiles, and I especially adore the photo where Dad is holding his hands on the cream blanket while he’s smiling! The wide smile on the navy blue blanket also makes my heart sing! And what about those delicious lips giving us kisses where Dylan is holding the cream teddy bear? I love that kissing face!
Although most moms are not ready for full-length portraits right after giving birth to a newborn, Mel rocked her portraits in both her stunning gown and their matching gray sweaters! It was an absolute joy to work with this lovely family — enjoy these beautiful photos of Dylan’s first photo shoot!
