Newborn babies melt my heart and newborn babies in the loving arms of new parents melt it even more! This precious little man arrived a few days later than expected and was the star of the show in my studio a couple of weeks ago. The sole goal of my newborn/family sessions is to capture the overwhelming love that new Mom's and Dad's have for their precious new baby and freeze those genuine, emotional feelings in pictures to treasure always! We started the session with Mom and baby and I must say there's nothing more beautiful than photographing a mother and her newborn - the life changing love so evident and palpable that it gets me every time! I then had Dad join his wife and son and told them to love on their baby, cuddle close and feel the moment - they did this to perfection! Father and son pictures of this handsome Dad and his little mini me were next and then grandma joined her daughter and first grandchild for some special three generation portraits. This little guy didn't want to miss anything so I was able to take some wide eyed wrapped shots and when he finally fell asleep toward the end of the session I was able to capture some precious sleepy shots as well. I thank the Rinker's for choosing me to photograph this special time in their lives and feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to capture such beautiful pictures for such a loving couple.
