Baby SJ, 8 Days Old.

I loveeee newborn photo shoots. Those first weeks are precious and fleeting as babies grow so quickly. I find few things sweeter than wrinkled toes, fuzzy arms, sleepy eyes, and swaddled snuggles….perfection! When I visited SJ and his fabulous parents, Cait and Matt, I had an afternoon full of delight. This new family is a wonderful one – welcoming, relaxed and totally loving their new addition. A perfect (early!) Christmas gift, if I say so myself! Baby SJ was so easygoing…content and alert, always aware of where his Momma was. I can tell already that he is a smart one! :)

I don’t usually use black & white for the majority of my images, but the simple beauty of a newborn made for just such an occasion.

Cait and Matt, thank you so very much for allowing me to spend this time with you and your adorable little man!
