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!
So beautiful and so loved!
SJ was always busy taking in the world around him. What a little man!
The ‘S’ in SJ stand for Samuel, and this sweet wooden duck used to be Cait’s! So fun!
Love the fuzzy little arms!
This little one knew his Momma and was happiest in her arms. Cait, you are beautiful!
My favorite tiny parts of this little one…
I’m such a sucker for tiny toes.
Missing his Momma!
This shot was Matt’s idea and I love it! These toes won’t be so tiny for long!
Above is a favorite! I love Daddies and their boys.
SJ’s big brother Jude came to say ‘Hello!’
Now you are a beautiful family of three! :)
(Plus Jude, of course!)
I love this of you, Cait! You are already a wonderful Momma!
The progression of a stretch…
Such sweet details in this home, so ready and excited for baby.
Congratulations, Matt and Cait and welcome to the world, little SJ!
