This could be one of those blog posts where I go on and on and on about all the million reasons why I'm so happy for this new family. I'll try to spare you the ramblings of my fullest heart for them but I will say, they deserve every beautiful moment captured in these images and more. This little guy had a pretty scary start to life, and they've all been through a whole lot to get to these moments captured below.
On another note, I know the rule of thumb for newborn photos is to do them within the first 2 weeks of life, but it just doesn't always work that way for everyone. Every family is different and that is so completely ok! This little man is just over a month old and I just love how alert and interactive he was for his session. Anytime is a good time for photos of your babies, children and family. These special moments and phases go so fast and although as parents we continue to experience new special moments over and over again, we just don't get the old ones back. And trust me when I tell you that this could sometimes be a tough pill to swallow. I love so much to be able to show people what these times look like from the outside looking in so that you can look at them during the hard, busy and tired times that come with parenting and remember what it's all about and how much you have to be grateful for. And...to have those moments preserved in an image that you can re-live and feel over and over again.
