Owen takes his sweet time, I can tell you! Owen was supposed to grace his Mommy and Daddy’s presence several days before he actually did. And Tony was wondering before the shoot whether Owen would scream throughout the duration or not. We were intimidated a little, to be quite honest.
But one thing that we learned about this little 8 lb intimidator is that he’s a real bundle of sweetness if you just work WITH him That’s all he wants really!
Owen: “I need some food.”
Mommy, Daddy, and Us: “You got it!”
Owen: “I need a new diaper.
Mommy, Daddy, and Us: “We’re on it!”
Owen: “I need a warm temp and some sleep.”
Mommy, Daddy, and Us: “No problemo!”
Once he had all he needed, I can tell you that Owen was a joy to photograph. It’s these little guys and gals like Owen that make you consider, if only for a few hours, giving up all of the wedding pizzazz and family shoots just so that you can work with these babies full time. Who would have thought?
Back to Owen! He will undoubtedly become either a fireman or a horseman or even a derivation of the two. You see, it’s in his blood completely. His Mommy, Lora, has been riding horses for virtually her whole life. And his Daddy, Tony, was absolutely born to be a fireman. With parents as loving as Lora and Tony, Owen will have every reason in the world to love these two of their passions as well.
As photographers, we wanted to make sure that we did our part to incorporate these pieces of Lora and Tony with baby Owen. Please kick back and enjoy these teasers from yesterday’s shoot. And if you have time, leave a comment at the bottom of this post for Lora and Tony, letting them know how precious their first little bundle of joy is!
