West Chester Newborn Photorapher | Rory

Rory was as delightful as his big brother was about a year and a half ago.  Both several weeks early and both as sweet and sleepy as they could be.  I have learned over the years that preemies are the easiest babies to photograph.  It's as if they think they are still in the womb and just pass the hours being swaddled, fed and snuggled.  I'm sure parents of preemies might disagree with me, but for the few hours I get to spend with them, they are just heaven.

I love this moment between big brother and little brother.  They are just beginning to learn what a special person the other will be to them.

I have so many shots of this next series that I love.  Something about the perspective and remembering how a newborn can just fit right on your legs like that, as light as a feather, both squirming and content at the same time.

Witnessing the mother and child relationship is indescribable, especially at the newborn stage.  To finally see the tiny person you have carried for (almost) nine months, there in your arms is too big for words.

Jim and Kristen, thank you for sharing your beautiful new baby and your beautiful new home with me.  I just loved photographing both boys.
