I first got a call about sweet baby Alijah when he was first born and in the NICU getting stronger. I remember his parents telling me that they didn't want to miss an opportunity to have pictures done but they weren't sure when or how it would work since he was born 6 weeks early. After weeks in the hospital, they finally got to bring this sweet baby boy home and we began to plan right away.
During the time of their session, Alijah was a month and a half old, but as you will see we still had the most perfect day shooting. There was one part of the session that stuck out the most to me though and that was when Alijah was getting a little fussy and his dad said "can I lay down with him for a minute? It calms him and we do it every afternoon together." Of course, I was all "ummm...YES, I would love for you to do that because that is what these sessions are all about". The moment was so peaceful. So special. And so quite. They just laid there together, like they do every day and one day when his son is older he can show him just how much he was loved and how they spent their early days together. <3
