“Baby he was born to ride”

When this little guy’s Mama called to schedule a newborn session she casually asked if I’d be able to get some shots of him on their motorcycle. My ears instantly perked up, “Why yes, I’d love to try that!” I’ve never photographed a little one on a bike before but I have a soft spot in my heart for motorcycle enthusiasts. Most likely because my Dad is into them. Any chance I get, I’ll go for a ride. So you can imagine how excited I was to pull up to their house and this good looking bike is outside shining in the sunlight. Don’t you love that paint color?

So thankful it was a warm day outside because newborns won’t stand it being cold. After some coaxing from Mom and I, we got him asleep in this position. We faired pretty good too, only one minor hiccup. Nothing a little Armor All couldn’t fix. 🙂 While we were photographing Dad said he was going to send this image into the Victory Motorcycle dealership. Bet they don’t have too many like this.

I’m excited to use this image on a custom birth announcement!

Then we headed back inside for some more traditional newborn images. This little guy was an angel throughout the session. He slept really good and looked so cuddly.

This family is absolutely adorable. I really enjoyed talking with Mom and Dad about the different trips they’ve taken on their bike. Sounds like fun.

I photographed this session right before I left for Memorial Day weekend. I couldn’t have asked for a better session to end my week. Mom and Dad are so happy to be parents, it just shines. I left that day smiling after seeing them love on their new baby son.
