Just like snowflakes, no two newborns are alike

I love photographing newborns. There's something so incredible about being able to document the freshness of these new little souls. And each and every one of them is different. Not only do they all look different (who ever said all newborns look alike was plain wrong!); but they also all act differently during their sessions. This little man was awake and pretty unsettled, but that seems to have mattered little, because I still captured some wonderful portraits of him. I love the "still curled up in the womb" look of the first one. Born two weeks early, I photographed him this evening just about when he was supposed to have been born. Isn't he just a cutie?

Thank you, Katie and Terry. I'm so happy you chose me to photograph you newest baby - I look forward to meeting your other children soon. Enjoy your preview.
