So…in case it wasn’t clear in my last post, I completely adore this couple. I had a pretty strong feeling that their baby would be super cute and I was so excited for him to arrive. And arrive he did. Peacefully, perfectly, like a snowflake. Wow… just wow. He was even dreamier than my expectations.
If you are a photographer, have you ever had a moment that has ever completely taken your breath away and you thought ‘this is it. this is what i live for’… Well, I had a moment like that while creating the picture of baby N almost smiling up at his mother. He was days old. Yet, almost wise beyond his, well, 5 days. Even in the picture of him looking up as his parents share a moment, he seems happy to be a part of this family. Is that even possible?
One thing that I especially loved was that big daddy D’s hair must have inspired baby N inside the womb. He came out rocking his dad’s ‘do.
THIS is the picture that makes me want more babies….
Thank you again so much W family for choosing and trusting me to create these portraits of your beautiful family and newborn baby. It is such an honor.
PS I can’t forget to give a HUGE thank you to “Nona”, baby N’s grandmother, who was a baby whisperer extraordinaire. If she lived closer to me, she would be coming with me to *every* newborn portrait session that I do. Her calmness and confidence in handling babies truly is what made this photo shoot so amazing.
