Flinn’s newborn baby pictures | Schoolcraft baby photographer

Flinn’s newborn baby pictures were taken at his home in Schoolcraft when he was just over a week old. His parents were the winners of the drawing for a session that was held after the Kalamazoo Baby and Family Expo, and I’m so glad they won. They were just delightful to work with. I love his name- his parents told me that it was in honor of his Irish heritage. He just couldn’t have been any sweeter. I have a soft spot for dads in newborn baby pictures, so I especially love this first set. Can’t you just feel the pride and the love of this dad for his son?


Flinn’s dad has a love for fishing and the outdoors, so I’m sure this is just the beginning of great times spent together. Once dad had settled him down and he had gotten into a deep sleep, he was putty in our hands. He moved from beanbag to baskets without a peep. Sometimes it takes a bit to get babies settled, but it’s worth the wait- and you know at this age that they sleep eventually! Not all babies are as tolerant of being moved around as he was, though. Love when they’re deep sleepers and able to be comfy in new spots!
