Oh my, I can't really think of anything I like better than new babies but if I had to come up with something, I'd have to say it's new parents. I just love them. I love the way they stare at this little person who is undoubtedly running their lives now. I love the way they smile at every little movement she makes with amazement.  I love the sometimes unsteady but going for it way they hand her off to each other and I LOVE the looks they give each other over the baby. So proud and united!  They have made a FAMILY. Oh, and it's official and it's being announced by it's newest member at regular (and irregular) intervals. It's the first-born bond that as parents, you never forget.  I was privileged to see this all again last week when little Mia was here. Six weeks old - past the "newborn" stage but just 10 pounds and still very tiny! Tons of dark hair, deep, dark eyes rimmed with long dark lashes (just like her daddy's) and a little hint of pink in her cheeks and pouty lips (just like her beautiful mama's!) Precious with a capital 'P'. And those fat little cheeks, creased arms and legs . . .really, I could just eat her up with a spoon! She did not sleep - she dozed briefly a couple of times but mostly was very alert and did not want to miss a thing. We riled her up a bit from time to time and she got pretty mad once or twice (which BTW doesn't phase anyone around here), but overall, she was a trouper!  Her Grandfather was here from New Jersey visiting this brand new granddaughter of his and it's easy to see, he, too is quite smitten!

So honored that parents trust me with what I know is their most precious thing in the world ... their child.  Thank you.

Good evening Lisa,

If these pictures are a preview of our photo session on January 28th, I'm chomping at the bit to see ALL the proofs! Thanks for capturing my granddaughter's personality in such a marvelous fashion. The parents and grandfather don't look too bad either. What a great ending to a 2 month visit and the start of a new exciting life for Mia.
