Mr. Mateo: Half Moon Bay Newborn Photography

Meet the adorable Mr. Mateo that I had the privilege of photographing recently. In keeping with my newborn record, he didn’t sleep much…I’m seriously starting to think that sleepy pliable newborns are a myth. No matter, because this boy was handsome and for the most part happy during our whole time together.

I was seriously giddy (once I got over my nerves) when mom told me that she had a guitar that was incredibly important to her Flamenco fanatic husband and a mantilla veil that had been her great grandmother’s in Cuba. “Something special to represent each of us” she told me. Like I said, nervous…but giddy.

We of course had to take some shots on the old scale. He was so mellow up there, I couldn’t believe it.


Ok…not totally mellow

Big brother who is 15 months old….and also quite the charmer.
