As I sit here listening to the rain, my little girl is napping in her room. A few minutes ago I snuggled with her, read her favorite book, and stroked her blond pigtails as she gently closed her eyes and drifted off to sleep. It seems like it was only a few short months ago that I was rocking her as a newborn, and stroking her dark hair as she closed her eyes. Makes me so wistful to have those days back... especially when I am working on images from a recent newborn session. McKenna was probably my sleepiest baby to date... at just a few days old, she slept the entire time I was at her home, except for the last 15 minutes. Her family could not have been more overjoyed with her! Sometimes, when I'm shooting, I'll sneak a peek at Mom and Dad (and Grandma and Grandpa, if they're there), and it's such a wonderful feeling to watch them smiling in adoration at their tiniest little creation, lying there peacefully in front of my camera. McKenna is going to be loved beyond compare, I'm certain of that!
Thank you, sweet S family, for indulging me and letting me spend the morning with you and your sweetest new addition. Your entire gallery will be ready soon; I could barely close the folder when I went in to get your sneak peek ready!
