Reno Newborn Photographer | Baby Brooks

It’s been a little while since I’ve had an “older” newborn. I love photographing newborns of all ages, but sometimes, they’re less “curly” the more days they are before they come see me. Baby Brooks was almost a month and I knew wrapped poses would be perfect on this handsome newborn baby. He and big brother Jett visited me recently and they’re just the most adorable boys. See for yourself below. Baby Brooks discovered something new during our session: how to suck his thumb! It was heart-melting, to say the least.

Neither of my boys ever sucked their thumbs, so I find it so precious! I researched thumb sucking a little bit more and found this tidbit:

Sucking calms your baby down. Even when you’ve just finished feeding your baby, she might still clamor for more sucking action. That doesn’t mean she’s ready to chow down again. In addition to suckling to fill their tummies, babies need “nonnutritive” sucking, the kind that mellows them out. It’s the whole reason we have pacifiers in the first place — sucking helps a baby calm down. Some babies, like your own little thumb sucker, love nonnutritive sucking more than others.

You can read more on thumb sucking here. Were your children thumb suckers? Feel free to leave a comment and tell me below. And if you’re expecting and would like to secure your newborn portrait experience, please email for availability.
