SESSIONS: Baby Jones and Family

Feb 5, 2016Photography

HE’S HERE!

Only 3 days after my last shoot with JereMia, Mia gave birth!!

She was 3 weeks early; no complications. She was just eating pizza one night at a friend’s house, and when she got home her contractions went off like crazy, so she went to the hospital and gave birth that night!

His name is Jones, and he is a cutie pie!

I got to meet their little guy just a few days after he was born. After several hours of cooing over the little guy in between meal breaks, we discussed photos.

Mia’s parents were visiting soon so it would be a family shoot, and Jeremy reminded us of an idea we played with to put baby Jones in their large `ava bowl.

My best friend Gabby helped me out with the shoot, and thank God, because I actually only had my 50mm (which if you didn’t know, can only shoot in manual AND the focus ring is wonky and will sometimes get stuck) and I was having a lighting problem because we planned to take photos in front of their house again, but it was overcast and made them look completely washed out. So Gabby came to the rescue with a 24mm and an external lighting source (she worked lights on actual sets in Hawaii) that immensely helped.

Mia’s parents remind me of my parents, her dad always wants to carry the baby and her mom is always thinking of the baby’s safety and comfort. Baby Jones was such a great little model, and I had a fun time shooting with the Comeros family.
