I have to say I was a little excited when Tamara contacted me to schedule a newborn session.  I photographed her sister’s baby Robbie a few months ago and he was one of the most beautiful babies I had ever seen.  I had a feeling this little guy was going to be too….. And I was right.

      He had the most beautiful silky hair and perfect skin for a newborn.  Not a single blemish.  But this guy was huge!  His momma said he was measuring big while she was pregnant and was just shy of 10 lbs at birth.  I know when he came to me for his newborn session he had to have been over 11 lbs.  He was SO strong!  He bust out of every wrap I put him in.

      He brought a special toy with him for his session as a tribute to his daddy.  Right now it is almost as big as he is.  It will be so cute to include it in photos with him as he grows up.

      Tamara chose mint for his accent color.  It looked soooo good on him!

      He woke up for a while and that was the perfect opportunity for awake photos.  Micah made the sweetest little facial expressions and even flashed a big ole grin for me.

      When he finally crashed again after a bottle and I was able to get some on the beanbag and photos with his mom and big sister, Sanaa.

      Sanaa was so good with him.  She would rub his little forehead until he fell back asleep.  So honored this sweet family chose me to capture such a special time in their lives.  It is obvious that this sweet boy is very loved…
