I first met Laura and Dave back in February, when Laura ordered my "Cherished Baby" package in anticipation of their little boy, who was due to arrive in April.
Despite some chilly temperatures, we had a wonderful afternoon together and I loved getting to know them. I learned that Dave is a huge Eagles fan as well as a culinary pro, and that his passion for both come out the minute he starts talking about either.
And I learned that Laura and I share a common love, that of our alma mater, Colgate University. Though there are quite a few years between my years there and hers, it was fun to share memories of our beloved school, and it connected us right away.
Shooting their maternity photos was such a treat.
But it was nothing to coming back this past month to photograph their little boy, Jack, just 10 days old in these portraits.
Jack was amazing! Besides being too adorable to describe, he was such a good baby. He slept through most of our session, never cried at all, and seemed most content to just rest in mommy's or daddy's arms.
I am already looking forward to my next session with this beautiful family! (I even picked up a prop for Jack to sport for it- Laura, check the mail!)
As for this cherished baby, I laughed with Laura that she must not think that all babies are this easy and wonderful! If they were, we'd all have ten!
But what a blessing little Jack is! Laura and Dave, congratulations again, and thanks for letting me share in your precious memories!
