Newborn Photos of Lucas James | DaniRae Photography

What can I say… Lucas James is 3 weeks old today. I am so behind in posting his newborn photos. Maybe before he is 1 month old I will have posted our family photos, and before he is two months maybe I will have posted his actual birth photos. Who knows! All of the shoots have minimal images, as it was just MontoyaCreative and I trucking along in between taking care of  our new addition and our almost 3 year old. Nap times just aren’t long enough any more. The newborn photos were taken on multiple days, during Leila’s nap time. We would also have makeup days and reshoots because I have high expectations. I am so thankful for Matt for putting up with my crazy ways.

Lucas was actually not too bad a subject to shoot. He slept a lot the first week of his life. I, also was not as tired and ragged as the first time giving birth. However, this time around it seemed there wasn’t enough time and if there was it was a short window.  I really wish I would have taken more days to capture all my ideas, but I guess that is the life of a photographer/mom.

Although, I do love the outfits and style we chose.  The hoodie and pant/beanie was from @yourstrulyprops. I am forever in love with the style and color of these items. I have a new favorite prop vendor!!! I feel my personal style pushing toward a more grey/white coloring. It seems more simple and pure for newborn shoots.

Before my little lady and newest little Man Cub wake up, I will let you view the adorable images of Lucas James Montoya. Born 8/12/2016 and weighed 7 lbs 13 oz.
