Zan: Four-Month Old Sneak Peek
I did not plan to disappear yesterday…oops. Truth be told, my day job has picked up quite a bit lately and I was traveling/with a client the past couple of days – thus the reason I haven’t done much blog hopping, commenting or email returning. Sorry. But enough about me…

Last weekend, I met up with Zan for his four-month portraits. I was actually supposed to meet up with Zan just before Christmas but he was a bit sick, so we waited until last Friday. He much a much happier boy.

I decided to bring my string of white lights this time as a photo prop – I don’t know why I didn’t use these in any of my previous sessions. Zan loved being wrapped in lights and spent the early part of our session trying to eat them. Adorable.

One of my goals with this session was to capture a smiling baby. Although the above shot has a soft focus, I still love this happy face – I guess it helps that his mom was blowing bubbles into his neck. He loved it.

We also wanted to see how much he’d grown since his newborn session. I don’t think I included the newborn photos of Zan in the red basket, but I’ll tell you that he never fit perfectly into the basket…just too big. At four-months old, he can now sit up in the basket.

Zan’s mom says she thinks this is her favorite age so far – he’s so alert and curious. He’s especially curious about his hands and feet. Whenever we laid him back so I could take some overhead shots, he’d always throw his hands in his mouth.

He’s also gotten pretty good at playing pat-a-cake. In the shot above, while I do love Zan’s eyes, I think I love the hint of a smile you see on his mother’s face. You can clearly see the love in her face.

So that’s all for Zan now – I’ll see him again right around Valentine’s Day for his six-month portrait session. If anyone has any cute ideas I should try with him, let me know. In the meantime, have an incredible day and weekend.
