Elliot Maxwell’s Newborn Photos

There’s something so special about newborn photos sessions. The miracle of the tiny human being created in God’s imageโ€”a bundle of intricate details.

When Elliot was 6 days old, I brought over my gear to do his newborn session.

We started with Elliot in the wrap and in the basket. He slept nicely, and even his little hands stayed in a good position.

We mixed in some family photos, some with Axton, and of course with Chelsy and John. The session start to finish was my fastest one yet (just over an hour).

Enjoy the photos, and there are a few behind the scenes near the end which Chelsy took.


I love that sequence. Axton gives the funniest looks after a kiss!

Elliot also happened to be with me while I worked on this blog post. ๐Ÿ™‚

“But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not,
to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”
Matthew 19:14
