Delaware Newborn Photographer | Wilmington Home | Jackson

Family

I want to cover my walls with this little guy.  Jackson came out as 6lbs, 9oz of 100% adorableness.  That’s not an easy feat since it often takes a little bit for babies to sort out all of that squishing from the previous 40 weeks.

He certainly made Katelin work for it though.  31 hours of labor and she never felt the effects of her epidural due to a medical condition.  31 hours!!!  And then he had the nerve to come out with the umbilical cord around his neck.  His parents are fashionable so it makes sense that he’d be accessorizing at an early age.

Katelin was positive he would be a girl.  James had a hunch he might get a boy.  I was eagerly awaiting their call after taking Katelin’s gorgeous maternity pictures not long before.  I was happily greeted at their Wilmington, DE home by puppy Remy.

Remy had decided to abstain from voicing an opinion either way but made sure she was on hand for any and all excitement.

So there he was, a super sweet baby boy and parents who were absolutely smitten with him.

Jack had a serious case of FOMO during the session.  He was into all of the attention and would. Not. Go. To. Sleep!  We caught a small nap early on but then it was back to the party.

 

Daddy James was clearly over the moon for his little man.  He oozed love for this thing that he had only known for two weeks.  He (correctlly) felt Katelin was a goddess in her own right.

It took  a momentous effort of shushing, rocking, holding, milk, and a little voodoo.

But we finally got him to rest those big, grey peepers.

Total goddess, right?!  And to think she had previously been worried about losing the weight!  Ha!

James designed and created the beautiful grey and white gender-neutral nursery.  The banner welcomed the baby they called “Little Foot” in utero.

Thank you Katelin, James, and Remy for inviting me in and introducing me to such a stinking adorable and sweet baby.  Love you, Jack!
