Continuing the story of this beautiful couple, is little Zechariah. See the fun part of my job is watching these families grow. By now Zechy is probably crawling, sitting up, cooing. But I remember them this small. Often their features are exactly the same, just more filled in. The newborn stages do not last very long. The expiration is just about 2 weeks for me. That’s when they loose their flexibility and start to develop muscle tone. Its when they start becoming more aware and staying up for longer periods. Its when they loose all that flaky skin. This is why I like to photograph fresh babies. So that we can freeze this short window that we so often forget with those sleepless nights when our world was blissfully turned upside down.
I remember when Sean and Heizel came into my studio, they were in a cloud, as most new parents are. Daddy had been up all night googling “baby gas”, I believe, since little Zechy had a rough night. Mommy was just trying to figure out the whole nursing thing and wondering just how much milk he was getting. Remember those days? They seem more like moments now, huh?
We ended the session close and snuggly like their maternity session was. Daddy in his police hat, Zechariah in almost full uniform.
