Photographing families over and over as their families grow is such a cool experience. Tonight I am sharing Luke Chappell’s newborn session. I think the last time I saw this family was when I photographed his big sister’s newborn session and she’ll be two years old soon! Time flies!
Luke is just about a week old in his newborn photos and such a handsome little guy. He wasn’t a big fan of being moved during his session so we had to make sure he got his mommy snuggles to keep him happy. His nursery is decorated in a sports theme with lots of details from his Dad’s sports collection. Being an outdoor lover myself I think my favorite part about his room is the mounted antlers above his crib. If I have a boy someday, I may need to steel this idea. You’ll also see a photo of a book called Willow Wallaby which is a children’s book that Katie (Luke’s mom) wrote! What a week memory to have photos of the book as part of his newborn session! Luke also has his very own signed Pacquiao boxing glove so of course we had to photograph him next to it. During his session we really wanted to get big sister Alivia giving him kisses because that is her favorite thing to do so you’ll see a few photos in there of her being a sweet big sister.
After photographing photos of just Luke we headed outside to get a few family photos of all four of them. We did a lot of counting to get Alivia to smile because her favorite thing right now is to count to 10, with 10 being the coolest number and most worthy of a huge smile when we said it.
Enjoy the cuteness and congrats Matt & Katie!
