When I was contacted last week by this 6 week old's mommy, I thought it would probably be better if we waited until he was about 3 months old to do a session. I typically reserve my newborn sessions for babies under 14 days old, since they are only sleepy and bendy for a brief period of time after birth. And, it's only a little while longer to wait until baby starts smiling and cooing if a baby is already over a month old. But when I heard their story, I knew this one might be different. Born early - at only 34 weeks - this little fighter has already been through surgery and recovery and is finally home with his family where he belongs! And what a beautiful family they are.
I was super excited when I spied his daddy's (or was it his grandpa's?) football and couldn't wait to get this little guy in a deep enough sleep to prop him up on it. And he slept like a dream!!
Finally, a special collage for his parents of all his itty bitty (seriously, tiny!) baby bits. There is nothing more precious in the world!
