This year I've photographed a lot of newborns. Usually they are under 3 weeks old, which most photographers would say is ideal. But this photo sessions with Baby M and his beautiful parents changed my mind. When they are brand new, like "just left the womb" new they tend to act like they're still in there. They're sleepy, malleable, and pretty still. But this guy was 8 weeks old and so full of life. He could smile, a little. He could kick and focus on you. And most of all it gave his parents even longer to fall in love with him. I was so glad I could capture them at this special time in baby M's life.
