Sometimes, when I’m really really lucky, I’m invited to the hospital after the birth of a baby to photograph a family for the the first time. A couple of years ago, I photographed little Miss H when she was first born and her parents claim those photos are their favorites, so they invited me back to photograph Baby A as he made his world debut. He was about 24 hrs old in these photos, and man, was he a charmer! Just look at him – totally adorable! And his big sister was endlessly curious. I love the photo where she is trying to feed him milk from her doll’s bottle. I have so much love for this family – not only do they invite me to photograph them, but I am lucky enough to have them in my life as friends. Mom and dad are the kind of people who radiate goodness and warmth and you just want to hang out with them all day because they have an endless supply of healthy(ish) snacks for you to munch on. I’ve thought about moving in, but with the two small kids at home, that probably wouldn’t work so well. I will settle for lots of photography sessions and lots of hugs and lots of baby cuddles. In the meantime, enjoy these photos!
