You just can’t ever get enough of the faces of new parents. Never enough.
There is beautiful work, work I respect, of newborns in all kinds of adorable poses and with all manner of props. Those shoots are not easy. They take a special kind of talent and patience. But for me, they are not what I am called to capture. I love to get the photos of all the new little parts as much as the next person, but honestly, the eyes of the new mom, dad, and in this case, big sister, are what speak to me. I can never get enough. When I do maternity shoots I always tell the parents to be that they will be so in love the next time we see one another. They have no idea, but it never fails. No matter how tired they are, the look is still there.
This lucky little guy was such a good sport. Not only does he have the absolute adoration of his parents, but he has an older sister who was literally itching to cuddle him. She was so great at getting him dressed, cuddling him, and signing him to sleep. And you can tell they will be great friends–they are already sharing so many secrets. Grandma was on the scene providing additional care for mom and baby.
All together these guys were loving their newly expanded family–there is so much joy in the photos, see for yourself.
