Baby Sam’s Newborn Session at the South Hadley Studio

Most of the time professional photographers are never seen in their family photographs, because they are always the one with a camera in their hands. Well my friend wedding photography friend Leah said enough of that and marched over to April Eve Images’ South Hadley studio with her new baby Sam, and Sam’s daddy, Mike. I have to say I felt so lucky (and maybe a little nervous) to photograph this beautiful family for their first portraits together. It means a lot when a fellow photographer trusts you with such an important milestone. Well Baby Sam was an angel, and a trooper through all of his costume changes. Although, at one point you’ll see him give the camera “the look.” I told him with a photographer for a mommy he better get used to it. 🙂
