While we are all stuck at home right now social distancing I thought I would take the time to share some home photos of our newest little one, Benjamin Job. Normally working as The Colony Newborn Photographer, I have been unable to shoot any newborn portraits with the shelter in place orders for Denton County. Like most everyone who is a non essential worker, I am home with the kiddos, homeschooling and trying to stay sane! Benjamin was born the first week of February and came home right before Covid-19 hit the majority of the United States. We stayed home the first few weeks to recover and as soon as we were ready to get back to our normal routine we were put under shelter in place. So we have been home for a really long time it seems.
Benjamin was our fourth baby, but due to being a stubborn footling breach with a two vessel umbilical cord he was our first C-Section baby. I have to say the recovery for a cesarean delivery was much more difficult than with a natural delivery. If you are pregnant, you can learn more about a gentle c-section here.
I wasn’t really able to take my typical studio portraits with him during the recovery process, but I took some more naturally posed shots of him with his older siblings during his first few days at home. These are always a great add on to your studio newborn portraits!
The kids had a pretty low tolerance for posing with their new baby brother, so this whole photoshoot lasted all of 10 minutes before they were up and out the door playing!
Our oldest son Owen is 10 and Benjamin looks identical to him as a baby. He loves reading books to his baby brother and literally set a timer for me to take these photos as he wasn’t interested in the process! Also, if you’re wondering where my company name came from, Fitzgerald is Owen’s middle name!
Our son Rory is 7 and recently lost his front two teeth and loves his little baby brother Benjamin. He asked if they could share rooms and although Ben is still in our room in a bassinet, we put the crib in Rory’s room for when he’s ready to move.
Mabel Grace turned four right before Benjamin was born and she was so excited to get a real life BABY! She loves to pick out his outfits, help give him baths and bottles, and change his diaper. It’s really sweet to see how the older kids dote on him and help take care of him, mostly in small doses before they run off and play.
All of these photos had no editing at all and were taken straight from my camera. If you are wanting to learn how to take better photos of your own kids you can take our virtual intro to manual photography class. It’s very basic and is the perfect class for anyone who already has a camera and just hasn’t ventured out of Auto Mode. If you learn to shoot correctly in manual you should not need to edit your everyday photos.
