This newborn boy at home in Livermore was such a love. He was so content being held and it appeared he was ready for a growth spurt since he was happily eating away most of the time. The mom was decked out in a beautiful kimono – really, it’s a perfect garment for a newborn shoot. It’s flowing and soft but still gives easy access to the little one if the mama is breastfeeding. Plus, usually moms run hot after childbirth and typically wanting to cool down so a robe is perfect for breathability.

The first time I met this new mama is was at her maternity session. The pregnancy photos were a surprise for her husband. So I it was fun to finally meet the new dad. He was soft spoken and such a proud dad of his new boy! The dad is from Samoa so it was fun to hear his stories about his family. These photos of baby boy will be cherished when he shares them with his family there.

I loved taking this new mama’s maternity photos so be sure to head over and see these stunning portraits: Sunny Beach Pregnancy Photos | Maternity Photographer San Francisco
