Nine days old.
Be. Still. My. Heart.
My dear friend, Michelle, brought her first baby into the world on 12.12.12, naturally! (I don't think anyone could plan that if they tried!) I was afforded the honor of capturing his amazing newness, indescribable preciousness and cuteness level so high it's ridiculous.
Foregoing the traditional posed "baby in a basket", my aim was a more natural, "lifestyle", real life documentation of his new little life and the tenderness of his parents' love for him and for each other. I also love being aware and tuning in to all the sweet little details of a baby.
And feet. I have a thing for little feet. Big people feet...not so much. Baby feet...oh, yes.
Thank you, Michelle and Diego, for allowing me to be the one to capture these fleeting newborn moments. May God bless you more richly than He already has. Love you all! I can't wait to finish editing the rest of your images!
Here's to baby Jacob!
