Levon is the second winning baby from my newborn photography session giveaway! He made his way into the world one day past his due date, and we planned his newborn session for his 8th day earth-side.
His session fell on an unseasonably warm, gray winter day, the ground littered with puddles of melted snow. Even though he’d eaten before heading over, he was hungry upon arrival. I wrapped him up all snug and cozy, and then handed him over to his momma for a little milk. While eating, he squiggled and wiggled, managing to almost completely unwrap himself. I have to say, I’m a pretty good wrapper, and most babies aren’t able to wiggle out quite so easily! This should have given me an early hint as to his personality! This guy DEFINITELY kept me on my toes!
Though you wouldn’t know it from looking through his gallery of newborn photos, Levon was a wiggly-squiggly worm for most of his session! Half asleep, half awake, he made sure to keep one pirate eye on me at all times, watching my every move. EVENTUALLY, I lulled him into a calm and cozy state. Snoozing the rest of his session away, I was able to finish with lots of adorable poses.

On Levon’s arrival: “I waited until daddy came home and set up a 6 pack of beers on the counter with a onesie, the positive test, and a note that read: Save for mommy until January 2018.”
Pregnancy Cravings: “Cravings changed frequently, but mostly I wanted crinkly fries and water with lots of ice. I also missed champagne–a lot! I eventually found a non-alcoholic version.”
Levon’s name: “A bunch of years ago while my husband was watching The Last Waltz, he decided that one day when he had a son he wanted to name him Levon after the lead singer of the band.”
First moments: “Hearing Levon’s first cry was overwhelming to the both of us with instant love and joy. Seeing his little face was like falling in love with him and his daddy all over again.”
The first thing I noticed: “All of the dark hair made me instantly think of how much he looked like his daddy.”
Favorite features: “His lips and all the funny faces he makes.”
Favorite moments: “Before bed at our last feeling. I love watching him snuggled up on daddy’s chest. His head is always right up against daddy’s beard and it doesn’t even affect him.”
