Austin’s Newest Human

Last weekend I had the pleasure of photographing one of Austin’s newest little humans, baby Lucas!  His brother was clearly very excited about the new arrival, although their dog Bella was still undecided (but she did grace us with a quick appearance for the camera).  Here are a few highlights from our shoot, which included the beautiful rainbow blanket that Grandma knitted for big brother and the book “Dragons Love Tacos” (that title just cracks me up).  I always like to include items that are special to the family as it helps tell the story of this special time in their lives.

Not Yet of This World

Last week I had the honor of photographing one of the newest humans alive – little Ruby at just 5 days old.  Even for those of us who have children of our own, we quickly forget what a newborn is like.  Their eyes open occasionally and just search for all they know, their mother’s face.  Their thin limbs move wildly while they are awake, simply wanting to be held tightly as they have been in the womb their entire life.  They really aren’t yet of this world!  Such a reminder of how fragile and beautiful life is…
