If you follow my blog at all you may have noticed my love of black & white for newborn photos, but something about the softness of the color in these shots really appeals to me. Sweet little Matthew is getting ready to meet his Daddy for the first time in just a few short weeks and I can’t wait to capture that moment! You see, Matthew’s father is currently deployed and has been bravely defending our country for the past several months. I think his Mama is pretty brave too. I would like to imagine that I could hold our fort down if my husband were away for such an extended period of time, but in all reality I don’t know what I would do. K, you rock!
Look at this gorgeous little guy. I just will never tire of baby fingers and toes…
The last time I had the opportunity to document a “first meeting” between a father and child I was amazed at how powerful the emotions of that moment were. You can see some of those images here. I’m proud to be involved with Operation: Love ReUnited and am so happy to be able to give a little something back to those who do so much for all of us. K, I can’t wait for your big moment. You must be beside yourself!
(Oh, and a side note. I may be finding out what I would do if my husband were away for a length of time very shortly; I’ve just recently found out that he will be going to training on the East Coast for an entire month…I’m definitely going to need some pointer’s from Matthew’s Mommy!!)
