Colin Dean Reed | Newborn Session

Ok y'all, we're going to kick off this first blogged session with some SERIOUS cuteness! Introducing Mr. Colin Dean Reed...

This handsome young man was born on December 7, 2020 at 9:14 pm. He weighed in at a whopping 8 pounds, 9 ounces (to everyone's surprise, according to mom Dorothy and dad Charles) and was 21 1/2 inches long. Would you just look at that adorable baby grin??

Mom and Dad delivered at Integris Baptist Hospital in Oklahoma City and, due to COVID-19 restrictions, were the only ones allowed during their time at the hospital. I'm sure this gave them lots of one-on-one time with their newest little man!

Dorothy says that her favorite part of our Newborn Session together was documenting all of his little features before he starts to grow and change - which also happens to be MY favorite part of newborn portrait sessions too!

The last time I saw Dorothy and Charles, I photographed their wedding at The Cheateau at the Palace Event Center in Banner, Oklahoma! We had such a great time laughing, reminiscing about high school (Dorothy and I were choir friends) and creating memories. I am so blessed and honored to have been asked to photograph their new little one as well!

Colin was an absolute doll during his newborn session. He barely fussed (unless of course he was getting his diaper changed) and he let me pose him without much argument. He slept like a dream due to only being five days old at the time of his session, too!

Colin's older brother, Jerry (who is 9 years old) is absolutely smitten with his baby brother!

Congratulations again to the Reed family, and Happy Birthday baby Colin! I can't wait to watch you grow and (hopefully) document those milestones along the way!
