My week of the Maxwells! I had two newborn sessions in a row, both will adorable baby boys named Maxwell! First up was Maxwell that had an adorable Harry Potter newborn theme that mom and dad wanted to incorporate in their session. They brought the books and the wand and described what they were looking for ahead of the session. I love that I was able to create this vision for them.

Harry Potter Newborn: Maxwell

Isn’t this the cutest Harry Potter newborn you’ve ever seen? I just love the way it came out! Maxwell is adorable. AND look at that little smile!

Styling the Newborn Session

Newborn sessions are always styled based on parent preference. In addition to the Harry Potter photo, mom and dad were looking for blue, yellow, and tan colors to be used.

Sleepy Newborn Boy

As you can see in some of the images above, Maxwell spent some of his time with me awake :). I always strive for sleepy pictures of babies. A lot of that is because babies aren’t always happy when they are awake. They usually want to be fed, changed, or just held. However, as you can see, Maxwell was a happy boy when he was awake. I just went with it and was able to get some cute images of him awake. I learned that he loved to be swaddled. So, when I was ready for him to go to sleep, I swaddled him up and in no time he would be in dream land.

At the end of the session He seemed to be really sleepy. I had offered to try another pose that mom had requested, but Maxwell didn’t seem to be a fan of, or to get some sleepy naked pictures. She decided to go for the naked, sleepy pictures. I’m so glad she did, because Maxwell was finally sound asleep and I am so in love the resulting images!  As a result, here are some cute sleepy pictures of baby Maxwell.
