Newborn: Maverick

It's always such an honor being asked to capture someone's newest family member. It's even more exciting when you're asked back to photograph the youngest little's arrival. It seems like just last month that I was getting to watch these two sweet parents snuggle on their firstborn. Now they look even more in love as a family of four. Little Mr. Maverick was the most content and model-like baby. He was happy to be swaddled, held, passed around, kissed on, and photographed the entire time I was there. Momma is a rockstar and has always handled our sessions beautifully (and with such grace toward her camera shy toddler). She just glows as the mother of her two boys. Dad was amazing and managed to sneak away from a busy day of work to get in on a couple of shots (thanks, Dad!). Brother was still adjusting to his new role, but happily showed us his train collection, and even managed a few kisses for his baby brother. I'll never get over that newborn love that sweeps over a family in those first few weeks. It's my favorite.
