it was the middle of summer. the campus was bursting with bright shades of green and light, lots of light. it trickled through the leaves, creating dappled shadows on Shannon's belly.
Shannon and Scott were both so excited. their little boy, Declan, was arriving soon. he had a room decorated in shades of blue and green, colorful books already lined his bookcase, and a menagerie of stuffed zoo animals were waiting to welcome the wee boy.
in August, I had the privilege of doing my very first newborn shoot. photographing a pregnancy, then coming to a home and actually meeting the little person who had been growing inside his mommy's belly is absolutely awesome.
Declan didn't appreciate posing for me, laying by himself on the endless white top of his parents' bed. he was happiest snuggled in his parents' arms.
Shannon and Scott, thank you for trusting me with this very first newborn shoot!
