Mom chose this session as a part of Luke's newborn portrait plan, which is 4 sessions in your baby's first year. Luke slept right through, except for a mid session feeding! Mom and Dad came prepared with his snack and plenty of diapers. We are looking forward to watching Luke grow during his first ...
