Nine Days Ago...

this sweet little bundle made her grand entrance!

Just look at those big beautiful eyes. It's hard to believe she is only 9 days old with such alert eyes.

such bright eyes for 9 days old!

Her eyes may be deceiving, but she definitely has the flexibility of a brand new baby.

folded up and snuggled

This raised hands pose reminds me of the beginning of "The Lion King" (I know, I am such a mom... I need to get out out of the house and see some grown-up movies, huh?). The cool pose was her mom's idea, but I am not sure her dad thought it was so cool. Oops, sorry dad! Thankfully this was the last shot of the day.

oops, sorry Dad!

I sort of feel like today was a rite of passage for me. In my whole career, today was the first time I have captured tinkle in a picture. It's certainly not the first time a baby has tinkled during a photo session, but it's the first time I photographed the actual act of tinkling. Perhaps this baby should win some sort of a prize. I know... a free 5x7 for the baby book. S&R, in 17 years you guys can bring this one out to show her prom date.

Love the one of baby and mommy, and of course the last one. Just fantastic!

Oh, Jess, these are gorgeous. You are a photographer's inspiration. And what a beautiful subject - the one with mama is touching... and the tinkle has to win some kind of award!! Wish a camera had been aimed about a foot lower, too - sorry Dad!

The picture of Mom S and baby S is breathtakingly beautiful. The picture captures so many emotions. I can't think of a greater baby gift for her than these pictures...precious.
