Meet little Mr. D – 2 weeks new

I absolutely love newborn sessions. Sure, there are the unknowns - will baby sleep? Cry? Cooperate at all? Will I get peed, pooped or puked on? Well, I have learned that a gentle (warm) hand, slow movements and a full belly can work wonders on most. And the time and patience it takes to get the gorgeous final products. I mean, I can honestly say that I feel privileged and special to be chosen to record these precious fleeting moments when a little one is still so young and fragile. Little miracles - and that's exactly what I'm trying to capture in my images - magic. As for the three dirty "P" words? Eh, no big deal. I'm a mom. I can handle any and all of that!

This little man was no exception. He was super-cooperative and snuggly. I just loved getting to visit with him and meet his happy dad and mommy, who happens to be the sister of one of my good friends from work :)
