Be prepared to say “ahhh” … it’s inevitable with this little 8.2 lb. six-day old! My sister-in-law gifted this portrait session to her daughter-in-law’s sister and husband. They recently celebrated their one year anniversary and now celebrate the birth of their first baby so double congratulations Molly and Jordan! It was such a joy watching them watch Piper. If Molly said it once, I’ll bet she said it 10 times … “oh Baby, you are soooo sweet” and other various romanticisms. It’s one of the most endearing and rewarding parts of photographing newborns — hearing and witnessing that perfect unconditional love that a mom and a dad have for their baby.
If these next photos don’t make you smile, I don’t know what will. New parents who simply can’t take their eyes off their new baby are so fun to watch (and even more fun to photograph). It is a remarkable thing for a parent to look at their baby and think “wow, me made that!” It is a wonder to behold, isn’t it? Who else but a loving God could weave all that DNA together and come up with those itty bitty parts that always form a little perfect person?!
Okay Jordan and Molly, let’s get at least one looking at the camera! 🙂 I adore you both. What amazing parents you are going to be and I loved spending a few hours with you. Congratulations again! Love, Mary
