Sugar & Spice {Sneak Peek: Newborn}

I know that “sugar and spice” is supposed to refer to little girls, but that’s also what gingerbread is made of.  And remember the Little Gingerbread Boy from a couple weeks ago?  Well, as cute as he was inside his mama’s belly, he’s outdone himself now that he’s here for everyone to see!  Here he is, already mastering the art of cuteness at only 8 days old.

Isn’t he adorable? And I don’t see a single sign of a snake, snail or puppy dog tail.  He was the most agreeable little guy throughout the morning, starting off wide awake to check me out and then snoozing on and off through a multitude of outfit and background changes.  And it’s obvious where he gets his good-natured personality — his parents were rock-stars as well, despite having very little sleep and being up to their eyebrows in this new world called parenthood!

As usual, it’s impossible for me to limit myself to just one or two favorite shots. I’m not even going to pretend to have any restraint.  How could I, with this little guy and his parents?

I’m so lucky to be able to share these special moments with new parents! And these guys are especially fun.  Right now they are basking in the sweet glow of their new family, but soon enough they’ll be looking for a gingerbread costume in baby size!  Congrats, you two — he’s precious and you’ve created a beautiful family.

    I like the way you let her hair flow freely – as most photographers would remove hair from face. Their joy and their love are shown here so naturally. I love it. You are good
