I love photographing families in their homes. They seem more at ease and kids can come and go pretty much as they please. This is especially true when the family has welcomed a new baby. Yes, it can seem chaotic, but I assure you there is a certain peace that a new baby brings. Just watching them sleep is about one of the most tranquil feelings in the world. Am I right? It settles our hearts and makes us grateful for the new life among us.
This session was no exception. As mom and dad scurried to get kids situated, hair combed and bows just right, there he was, just as calm as he could be. Reminding us to be still and soak it up.
I learned later from the mom that this sweet baby boy was named because of a verse in the Bible, Joshua 1:9. Can you guess when he was born? January 9...as in 1:9. How precious is that? "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."
I hope that encouraged you today as much as it did me. Enjoy some of my favorite captures from the morning with this adorable family.
