This little guy is extra special, not just because he’s extra cute and extra sweet, but he’s also my nephew. I took Kathy’s maternity pictures just a few weeks ago and now Jackson is here! He’s was just 6 days old in these photos. And I could not believe how alert and active and strong he was already! I wondered if we would even be able to get him asleep. He was so alert and busy checking out his surroundings, and then my newborn assistant had to leave (aka my friend Angela who is like the baby whisperer when it comes to getting these little guys to sleep!) But even if we didn’t get those sleepy shots, at least we got this sweet wide awake one.
But all it took was a little trip outside and he drifted right off to sleep. I love taking newborns outside if the weather cooperates! And seeing that we broke a heat record on this day, outside was plenty warm enough for Jackson. He was little jaundice, so we joked that his session also doubled as his photo therapy time.
I am having the hardest time picking a favorite, but this one is definitely up there!
And I love his sweet face in this one.
He makes women everywhere swoon. He’s handsome, cuddly, and at just 6 days old knows that carefully selected flowers can add just the right touch. Girls love receiving flowers, and I’m glad I could be a part of teaching him that important life lesson.
I can’t wait to watch him grow up. He is so loved.
