carson, 9 days / by Ashley Brown

There's kind of a funny story behind Carson's recent arrival. I've been eagerly awaiting his birth, as I've known his mama ever since she booked a session for her nephew (one of my first sessions!). She came to Mom's Night Out, which happened to fall on her due date. It must have been something in the delicious food, because lo and behold, she went into labor that night! I'm glad Carson decided to wait a little bit so she could come to MNO! This little boy was a dream newborn to photographer. Tiny, sleepy and peed on mommy, not my stuff. Plus, how gorgeous are his parents?! I could have photographed this new family all day.

I loved his perfect, bow shaped lips.

It's no secret that I love incorporating a newborn's nursery. My clients have such fabulous decorating tastes... there are quite a few I'd like to hire for my own house (a barter, anyone?!) I loved Carson's nautical nursery. This is one of my favorites. And just an FYI... pictures are deceiving. Carson was far from the edge and mom's hands were a millimeter out of the frame. I love the lighthouse and waves!
