Luke

This sweet little man is Luke. He was a photographer's dream baby. Sleepy and willing to pose and naturally tucking his arms and legs up into his body. ( Photographers call that "curly"). His mom is a photographer too, so it's pretty awesome for her that he's such a great model. :)




Luke is the fourth child in this family so he's got a whole crew of people who love him.





This shot cracks me up. Luke woke up right after we had everyone else positioned so we took a quick snap and rescued him. But I think the combination of his pathos and their smiles is amusing.

Isn't this hat sweet? His mom hand dyed and knit it. Isn't that cool? She makes specific colorways for each of her children. (This isn't Luke's colorway, but another hat she made for the curious ;)

See? He just curled up so nicely with his long arms and legs!





Sweet fuzzy ear! One of the things I love best about newborns is how furry they are!

I think his relaxed hand placement is my favorite thus far of the babies I've posed like this. You want the baby's face to be completely at ease, and for their fingers to be flat against the sides of their face and Luke was very willing to comply!
