This lovely 10 day old was simply the most easy-going, cooperative newborn I have worked with. Mom was well-prepared with lots of props and accessories she picked out on her own, and Luca was happy to oblige as I posed her in setup after setup.  I had such a fun time, I was reluctant to end as she continued to sleep peacefully through the entire session.

But I guess I should not be too surprised that she was such a perfect model — after all, she has to keep up with her well practiced big brother, who I have also been photographing since he was just 11 days old.

So delighted to meet you Luca, and looking forward to capturing many more picture perfect moments of you.

I find it such a privilege to see families grow over the years.  I photographed this family one year ago at the same time of year, and it’s amazing to see how much these boys have grown over the course of a year.

I actually have known mom and dad since before they were even married, living in Boston.  So I have truly seen this family grow!  And what a treat that we can be living in close proximity again – on the other side of the world.

One last post to wrap up 2014.

Although I am a little late on a Christmas post, I chose these newborn images both in celebration of our most precious Christmas gift, and in anticipation of a New Year and new beginnings.

Luke 2:11-12 “Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you:  You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

Happy New Year and looking forward to what may be in store.
