Taken in the hosital the day after he was born. The dad had told me before I even arrived that he had seen this shot and knew that it was one he wanted with his newborn. The mom was not so keen on a portrait session in the hospital after giving birth the day before but dad won out. After I had the images uploaded I got a call from the dad and was told that the mom is in love with and can not for the life her understand why she wouldn't have wanted to do these first shots of her baby.

Apparently two people did. Guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Thanks.

Absolutely sweet...I love how the baby has the hand gripped with the tiny fingers. Beautiful lighting. Would have been better imo without the ankle ID. Still, a highly emotive and nicely done shot.

This picture is wonderful. I voted on it, then came right back to it, kept the vote the same, then came right back again! It's soooo beautiful how the baby is clutching the finger. Lovely, emotive, touching image. 10.
