When I first met this lovely family, they were excited to share their news of baby number 2 with their friends and family. An now he's here! A little early and oh so tiny, but perfect in every way. This family is one of the sweetest groups of people I have had the honor to meet and photograph and I was blessed to visit with them while we shot little Rhyders newborn session.
Big brother, Russell, was his usual full force self during the session, full of energy and curiosity, and really in love with his little brother, even if he only showed it for brief moments at a time! Dad did an amazing job keeping big brother happy and entertained while mom and I worked with little man.
This session was a first for me, my first preemie baby, who had spend some time in the NICU, and was quite a bit older than my typical newborn. At 20 days new he was so sleepy and sweet, all those noisy nights in the NICU helped prep him for sleeping through his session.
He was such a tiny little guy, the smallest baby I have ever worked with, but we modified his poses and got some adorable pictures mom and dad will treasure. This session was really like visiting with old friends, and I really have been blessed to meet some amazing families through this journey. Thank you all!
