And then there were three. Well… six if you include their two pups and the kitty! It’s been a big year for the Hilt’s and I’ve loved being able to document their ride. You may recall their beautiful wedding (some peeks in the wedding section under “portfolio”) as well as their park maternity session.
Baby Matthew made his arrival a few weeks before we all expected, but was perfect as could be. This sweet little peanut was 5 days new when I got my hands on him, and slept throughout most of his session with just a quick nurse and diaper break in between. While I believe any time is a good time to photograph your children, it’s important to take newborn pictures as early as possible. I recommend before their 10th day in order to achieve those serene sleepy poses. After this time, babies begin to stretch out their little arms and legs, making them harder to mold into those squishy positions most parents want.
