Welcome to the World Baby RJ

Sunday, August 4, 2013

I had to show you the fun before and after RJ’s arrival.  Cindy had always wanted shots in their backyard where the kids constantly played, so we decided that it would be the perfect setting for a session with the family before the new addition.  After waiting out a storm, we picked strawberries, played on the swingset and then played in the rain again at the end, it worked out perfectly.  We did their newborn session at the studio.  It was so fabulous to finally meet RJ.  Cindy told me she was expecting early on so it seemed like forever until he was here!  He slept peacefully for his shots with his sisters then was wide awake.  Have you ever seen a one week old so alert?  Seriously?!?  Look at the pic of him and mom, I was hoping he would rest his head on mom’s shoulder, but no – he was up and at em’ ready to take on the world.  I can’t wait to see how his personality emerges!!!  We have a whole series of shots like this showing all of his different expressions, he is so adorable!  In years of photographing newborns I have never seen a baby like this!! amazing!!   We both got teary when we took the shot of him in his nest, Cindy made that hat and blanket and told me of her vision of that shot at the start of her pregnancy, it was so neat to see him here; finally – healthy and safe.  Congrats to one of my favorite families!!
