newborn photos

Cliff turned 4 months old yesterday, and I was feeling nostalgic, so I decided to finally share some of his newborn photos here! These images by Thistle & Lace Photography are a treasure to me. Adina came to our home and photographed us with Cliff when he was two weeks old, just before his (false) diagnosis of Galactosemia, when all was happy and well--as carefree as you can possible be with a tiny, helpless, brand new baby! I love that these images show us doing all the normal, everyday things that were so constant those first weeks of Cliff's life: staring at him in wonder, changing him, bathing him (actually his very first bath!) and snuggling him. I am so grateful for the beautiful light, the raw emotion and joy that Adina captured in all of these pictures. Thank you, thank you, thank you Adina--I would have many more babies in the future just so you could come take pictures of them :)
