I have added our favorite newborn photo to my header for the blog as you can see. He just fits in with this family, no?
We had a great newborn session in her new studio (it was the first newborn session in her new studio), and August kindly defecated and urinated all over her floor and backdrop paper. Some call it contaminating, I call it "christening". Perspective, folks. Kate was a champ about it, and even took a picture of Eric and some Clorox wipes and poop all over him.
Many of you have seen our announcement and the gallery on Facebook, but here are just a few of my favorites. When did this itty bitty baby get so big and chunky?
Enjoy the sampling. And my sleep deprived commentary.
August Meyer at 9 weeks. Full of cuddles and breastmilk poop.
|I make 'em with some wild hair. Not as epic as Mommy Shorts baby hair contest, but wild enough to make it extremely difficult to navigate their haircuts around multiple cowlicks.|
|"Baby boudoir." I kid. I just love a sleeping baby.|
|This one is awesome for 3 reasons: |
|I mean...this kid is amazing.|
|Gus is totally calling on his colon and sphincter muscle to get into action.|
|Okay, this one makes me laugh because this is the conversation I hear happening. "Hey, what's that silly baby's name? Oh, it's Gus. Why yes...that's a TOTAL Gus!" AMIRITE?|
|This one he looks like a doll to me.|
|This one, too!|
|I call this one "air guitar." And even though he's doubled his weight since this picture, he totally still makes this face. (Love Eric's hands in the background, too. And Gus's lil nipple!)|
|Just so peaceful...|
|Another favorite. Photography is tiring!|
|This one makes me tear up. He was and is just so perfect.|
|This is another favorite of ours. His profile is amazing. Even in utero, he had one heck of a nose.|
|And to complete today's sampling, the "after" shot.|
