Little, clutching hands, so dear,
Grasping everything that’s near,
Reaching for each thing in sight,
Baby hands, so soft and white!…
How you pull at our heart strings
As you dance and as you sing!
Baby, dear, to us you bring
Comfort and eternal Spring!
~ Gertrude Tooley Buckingham, “Baby Hands” ~
There is absolutely nothing sweeter than a newborn. And being trusted by new parents to capture their perfect little babies is just amazing. When I’m photographing a newborn I have a constant smile on my face — their sweet smell, the silly faces, the teeny tiny hands, the little wisps of hair…*sigh*. It’s all just too much cuteness to bear.
This sweet little boy was an absolute dream to work with. He slept right on through our entire session and he made the. most. ADORABLE newborn faces ever. That pout…oh my heart, that pout! I mean…the cuteness is just too much.
And let’s talk about that AMAZING nursery. Mom is a total rockstar and she put up all those beautiful decals all by herself…while pregnant. Kudos to you, mama!
I had a wonderful time with this new little family and I simply adore their images. I hope you do too!
