Baby R | Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

I have to admit it. I'm really starting to fall in love with newborn photography. Yesterday marked my second newborn session in two weeks and, barring the difficulty of making every session look unique when compared to another, I have found that I look forward to the little teeny babies so very much and find it an absolute joy to work with them!

When Baby R arrived at the studio yesterday, his mom said he had been awake almost 3 hours and that he was just getting ready to eat and take a nap - which, incidentally, is THE PERFECT time. This little guy is 6 weeks old already but still slept through almost the entire session. Ahhh, sweet sleep!

I'd be remiss if I didn't say that you should really check out this little guy's mommy's blog. All babies are a miracle, but this one came at a truly miraculous time. Baby R's older sister, Caden, passed away last September at just 8 months old. Then, in April of this year (while Baby R was still in the womb), his daddy was diagnosed with a brain tumor. This family has been through so much in the past year and they remain constant examples of the beautiful life that can exist only in Christ. I encourage you to go read some of their story. I know you'll be touched.

And now, back to Baby R....
