Look at this cutie-cute six month old baby boy. My Brody Ripken Ray!!
We are very fortunate to have not just one, but two different neighbors who are professional photographers. And with some degree of regularity, we are the beneficiaries of their skills! My friend Rhonda specializes in family sessions and action photos (athletic events mostly), and prefers to do outdoor photo shoots over indoor. For my baby shower last December, she gave me the wonderful gift of a photo session for the new arrival! While she normally doesn't do sessions indoors, she was gracious enough to offer to do a nursery photo shoot. Fun!
Initially, we were going to do it as soon as the baby was born. . .leaving the hospital, first car ride, welcoming the baby home, taking him into his nursery, etc. But there was so much chaos around his birth (three weeks early), and nothing seemed to go as planned with him in the NICU for a week, so it just didn't work out. That's okay. . .a newborn can't do this:
Oh, if we could just get him to stop crying and smile like this all the time!
Thank you, dear Rhonda, for the adorable photos and memories!
