This handsome little guy was the lone ranger in a sea of little ladies during the week of his session.
Seriously check out his darling little face, and those eyes!!! He is going to be a heart breaker!
It was a refreshing, change of pace from the sea of purples, pinks, and flowers. I just love this new braid I pulled for this little guy, it reminds me of plaid, madras shorts. But it was a perfect complement to his coloring and that adorable little set of overalls. Also he curled up so sweet, and really loved his little nest. I just love those little crossed feet.
His session was strongly influenced by his momma and daddy's service to our country. I just loved the traditional use of blue for a boy, incorporating the flag, and even daddy's boots and cap. ( don't worry all proper flag protocol was followed) I just love the eye contact of the flag image. Almost like he knew just how awesome this picture was going to be.
And how sweet is this first family portrait? Such wonderful image of a young family.
I remember those first days with our first little one. Sprinkled in between the sleepless nights, and other not so pleasant moments of the first week of parenthood. You know the ones, where you feel like you jumped into the middle of the ocean with no life jacket, and no swimming skills!
Those sweet precious moments in the middle of all that, when you make eye contact with your spouse, and just feel the flood of love and joy at the new creation you two made.
This picture reminds me of those moments.
I seriously am so blessed to be able to do the work I do, it is just amazing. I am grateful daily to be able to be a small part of a new families first few days. It is such an awesome and fabulous time.
Thank you to Luke's mom and dad for your service to our country, and good luck to you on your new journey as parents. Here are some outtakes from this session, enjoy!
