I think it's always exciting when a new life enters this world. It's part of what I love so much about being a birth photographer. Having a new little one in my own family, however, is extra exciting! Let's be honest, my own kids get tired of my camera sometimes and aren't always the most willing models. Having a new baby in the family with parents who are perfectly happy to let me take as many pictures as I want? A baby photographer's dream!
Enter: my adorable new nephew. He was actually born over the summer but between the move and not having internet for 6 weeks, I've been hanging on to these photos for a while.
He was a hairy little thing when he was born and had (still has!) very long toes. His mama jokingly called him "Wolverine."
He was such a perfect little model for me! He was happy and content most of the time I was there taking photos. He did get a little "hangry" at one point, but a bottle and some snuggles from mom took care of that pretty quickly.
We are all so very thankful for this new little guy. Be prepared to see plenty of pictures of him in the future because he is just the cutest little chunky monkey!
