loved.

This baby
has so very many people who love him.
And yet…

Not a single living person, only God, knew he existed until the very day he was born.
Not his parents, grandparents, no doctors, not even the young woman who carried him, until the moment she gave birth to him in her bathtub. Imagine her shock! She had not expected him. And yet…
She loved him.

And she gave him a great gift. She chose the very best people I can think of to be his parents. Congratulations to my best friend and her husband on their miraculous baby boy! Photographing him on his 6th day of life was amazing; he is truly one of the most beautiful babies I’ve ever seen.
I look forward to being his “auntie” for at least the next 18 years!
