Ithaca, NY Newborn Portrait Photography ~ Meet Derrick, 3 days old

Ithaca is one of my favorite places to be - especially outside but the session day was breezy so instead Yuli cranked up the heater and we spent the morning sweating.  Despite concerns about fussiness he managed to give us some touching sleeping moments, which Yuli says have helped her through some sleepless nights.  I think that's true of images in general - the happy ones carry us through the times when we're bleary eyed!

I sometimes wonder how many newborn sessions are responsible for how many pregnancies.  How can you look at Derrick and not want a baby in your arms?

Yuli had her hair in a ponytail.  She took it out and it cascaded down her shoulders like this.  I give you permission to feel jealous. :)  
The whole extended family was visiting.  They were all surprised when they saw the images from the session and said, "Oh, so that's what you were doing up there!"

This was a parents' favorite.

This was not photoshopped!  Both dogs actually looked at the camera at the same time.  Score.
In a few months this new family will be packing up to move to New Mexico to pursue Rick's career, which is a bummer!  I really enjoyed working with you all and wish you the best of luck!
