I’m lucky to get to see this family about every other month. I met them when their oldest was just 9 months old. We’ve gotten in plenty of sessions since then. Their son, Navy, holds a special place in my heart. His newborn session had to be done outside on my front porch due to Covid. He was a champ then and now. These pandemic babies are so used to seeing people in masks, they manage to smile and wave- despite the obvious difference of not mirroring my facial expressions back to them.
His Mama wanted a special session that was just Mother and Son photography. It warms my heart to see Navy here cuddled up with his Mama. This time is a special one, and of course, like all time, it will move along fast. I’m so glad we captured these moments.
I really wish I had done a special session with myself and any one of my babies. It seems like such a small thing until you look back and think, who stole my baby?
This surprised face is my personal favorite.
Here’s a quick look back at Navy in his Mama’s belly with his big sister Nyah…
And Navy as a newborn…
Time flies friends…
See you soon sweet Navy.
