"Perhaps you were born for such a time as this."
The above verse is from the book of Esther in the Bible, and I adore it and think it speaks SO much to "Momma-hood". There is no experience that surpasses or even matches it. And THAT is why my absolute favourite sessions are maternity, birth, and newborn: capturing a Momma and her babe in those first few weeks of getting to know one another (outside the womb!) and already being so very much in love :)
This little human decided to be born three weeks early…which meant that by the time we held his newborn session (later than most, at almost three weeks old!) his actual due date hadn't even arrived yet! Baby Parker has the sweetest blond hair, some of the cutest little lips I've ever seen, and carried the most special name: Parker Douglas. But that seems so grown up a newborn so I'll refer to him as BABY Parker Douglas :)
That little fluff bum!!!
But those BACK WRINKLES!!!! Be still my heart! Hands down my favourite shot of the day!
