This is my very first photo blog, and I found it suiting to blog about the ultimate in new beginnings - a new life.
On May 30, 2013 Elijah James was welcomed into the world by Mia Sara and her family. While Elijah's first days were met with a few challenges, he was healthy and surprisingly alert by the time he came in for our photo session at only 10 days old. And with all that black hair and those big brown eyes, he was just as cute as I expected him to be!
Photographing a baby is such a special honor. It's almost like getting a window to look through and see back to the time when my own daughter was so small, to recall the wonderment of a dreaming baby with their peaceful yawns and sleepy smiles. And to understand how amazing those moments are, how perfect every little feature of these miracles are, and to get to capture it so new parents have something they can look back on years from now and remember how wonderful it really was to be responsible for this new beginning - that's got to be one of the most important purposes a photographer could ever have.
