I was lucky enough to revisit Jenn and her family over the weekend, this time to photograph the beautiful Baby Oliver. Photographing newborn babies is one of the best parts of my job. I always feel honored to be invited to sit with a family and document such a special time in their lives.
I’ve been around quite a few newborn babies. I’ve even had one of my own…but it is something that to this day, I still cannot get my head around. To look at a tiny person, think about where they came from, and wonder who they will become is, in my opinion, one of the most amazing parts of the human experience.
And here he is…
Jenn looks so at home with Oliver in her arms.
And Oliver looks quite content in Jenn’s arms as well!
Check out the very cool edible birth announcements! I am sorry to say that mine was eaten immediately by my family (I did help, though.)
Oliver was ten days old when I visited. I was amazed at how incredibly alert he was.
It was wonderful seeing Aidan again.
Good news for Oliver: his big brother will be very eager to read to him.
And good news for Jenn and Carter: Oliver will most likely be able to sleep through anything!
He was unbeliebably gentle with his new brother.
Don’t worry Aidan, you will soon be this little guy’s hero.
A couple of candid family portraits…
I don’t blame him for coming three weeks early to be with this family. I would’ve done the same thing.
Carter tried a new position out on Oliver.
Yep, it’s a winner for sure.
Oliver is too beautiful for words.
Carter’s mom made this blanket for Oliver. He seems to approve.
I especially love this one:
Congratulations Jenn, Carter, and Big Brother Aidan. I know that Oliver will bring all of you endless joy and love!
