he's ready for his close-up, mr. demille ...

While my sister, Stephanie, was here to help me out after Fischer was born, we decided to try our hands at a little mini-newborn shoot (well...it was supposed to be mini, but ended up taking a loooot longer than a mini-shoot would ;).  He was about a week and a half old at the time.  Mr. Fisch wasn't cooperating at all, but we managed to get plenty of cute pictures regardless...which, despite how adorable newborns are, is actually really hard to do!

Enjoy!

this is my absolute favorite of the group

I just love how his little dark eyes pop in this one

I just can't get enough of that soft baby neck and dark hair!

The yellow blanket kept on making the colors in the pictures do funny things, but he just looked too cute not to share :)

smilin' during dreams of heaven

I love how the colors just pop in this one

We tried to do some tummy-pictures while Mr. F was awake and he nearly wriggled himself right off the chair!  You can totally see him straining with all his might here.  He looks like a turtle trying to crawl out of his chair :)


poppin' in the binky was the only way to get him to relax.  as soon as we took it out, however, he'd go right back to wriggling.

he has the longest, thinnest toes and feet!  I love those dry little newborn toes

contemplating big adventures to come

Thanks, Steph, for sharing your mad photo-takin' talents with me!

cute!! Haha there's NO SUCH THING as a mini newborn shoot! I always block out at LEAST three hours; when I tried to take Eliza's newborn pictures (it was a lot harder than taking someone else's kid's pictures), she wanted to nurse four times in two hours! Urgh! In any case, looks like you got great stuff anyway! That little guy is just so dang cute!

I can NOT believe I didn't comment on this one. He's gorgeous and a definite Lifferth. Also, I am super impressed that you've done cute things like pregnancy photos and pics of your little one. You're so on top of everything.
