Penny and Matt’s baby boy is here! Actually, he’s two weeks old today, but we did his session when he was just four days old. There was a slight delay in posting as I was traveling out west in Utah and Arizona this past week, where I photographed a Navajo woman who will turn 100 tomorrow. It’s only now just hitting me how completely wonderful it is to have photographed Shane, who is so very young, right before meeting and photographing Susie, who is not. (Photos of her coming soon.) It’s amazing and inspiring, and I am so very lucky to do this work. Thank you, Pen and Matt, for allowing me and my lighting kit and backdrop stand and giant baby posing beanbag into your apartment, which is so very full in this special time- full of baby things, and gifts, and people, and most of all, your sweet newborn son. He is so very precious. Enjoy every minute.

You might remember when I blogged about a maternity session a couple of months ago with Teran and her husband Jim. Last weekend I got to meet their baby girl! Nila is 9-weeks-old and so, so sweet. It’s still so miraculous to me that the same little kicker who was inside just a few short months ago is actually here. Back in March, they asked if we could work a soccer ball into some of the shots, since both Teran and Jim play on the weekends. Shooting the parents’ wedding rings dangling on tiny toes is becoming kind of a trendy pose these days, but I have to say, it’s one of my favorites.

Nila is an absolute angel who really wasn’t a fan of my big portrait lights, so we posed her in some of her favorite places: the bath, the swing and in her parents’ arms. Still, that pouty lower lip just cracks me UP. Thank you so much for letting me spend so much time with your baby girl, you guys. You have a beautiful family, and I’m so happy for you.
