The day after Easter Sunday, April 6th, I got a text from dad asking if I was ready to photograph a new baby. Um, YES! ;) When I arrived at the hospital, that little hunk of a boy was relaxing in the arms of his big cousin like it was his job. He was less than 6 hours old, but was hanging out as though he had been around for a couple months. Weighing in at 9lbs 3oz, 22 inches long, with perfect skin, it was hard to believe he had just been born.
I think the best part of the day was when his big brother came up to meet him for the first time. He took one look at baby Pax's feet and said, "Big!!" Yep, it won't be long before they're wrestling each other and breaking things (says the mom with three boys of her own).
Birth and newborns are so incredible. What a magnificent way to see the hands of our Creator making order out of chaos.
