Welcome to the world, Little Felix!
This sweet boy was 2.5 weeks old at his session. He was awake and alert through most of my time with him and was definitely feeling cozy when I wrapped him up! 🙂 I’m excited to share more photos from this lifestyle newborn session on the blog today, along with some session insight from his mama!

PLEASE TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR FAMILY!
Me and my husband are marketing professionals in Northern Virginia, and we just welcomed a baby boy to join our little family.
HOW DID YOU PLAN YOUR FAMILY’S CLOTHING?
Alexis did most of the work by bringing all the clothes and props for our baby. Alexis and I discussed a few color options ahead of time, and that was it! And me and my husband just picked out outfits from our closet.
WHERE WAS YOUR SESSION HELD AND WHY?
Our session was at home. That seemed most convenient and fitting for newborn photos.
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE SESSION?
I loved how Alexis was so gentle handling our baby, and she kept everything moving very smoothly.
WAS THERE ANYTHING YOU WERE NERVOUS OR WORRIED ABOUT BEFORE HIRING A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER? HOW DID YOU FEEL AFTERWARD?
I was certainly nervous about how the session was going to go with a newborn. Alexis gave me great suggestions to prepare our baby for the session. That helped tremendously and worked like a charm. I was so happy and relieved after the session that everything was calm throughout, and we got all the shots we wanted.
ANY FUNNY STORIES OR INTERESTING HAPPENINGS DURING YOUR SESSION?
Our baby boy was just awake the whole session, yet completely calm. That was a first!
DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR OTHER CLIENTS OR FAMILIES BEFORE THEIR PHOTO SESSION?
Just trust Alexis knows what she is doing. Whether you have a vision for your shoot or not, she will work with you to make sure you get what you’re looking for.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE ALEXIS EL MASSIH PHOTOGRAPHY?
She was recommended to us by our family members. We are so glad to have met her and have her take our newborn photos!
