Newborn Solian | Photography by Emily Payne

Solian, what a beautiful name for this blue eyed baby boy! Mom emailed me after Solian was home and was very eager to have his newborn photos taken. I was so happy to have a few appointments open that worked for them as well. I arrived at their cool apartment in the Castro, San Francisco and set up a little studio next to their big windows. Mom had mentioned his beautiful blue eyes in our correspondence so I went to this session with a different approach. Usually, I would like the baby to be asleep but we wanted to capture his eyes! So, it worked out perfectly. He was awake and happy (not a normal thing for a newborn!) and he actually gave us smiles…what a treat!

Dad worked hard to do some soothing and we were able to get a few photos of him asleep as well. What a parenting pair, they worked so well together. I can’t wait to see Solian grow!
