Where do I begin to express my excitement about this Fresh 48 in hospital session. When I walked into this sweet family's room, there was dad, big brother Abel, a family friend that traveled from Oklahoma where they used to live, who was helping them taking care of big brother, and last but not least Baby Enzo was in mom's arms feeding. This is what I love most about this type of sessions...It is all about documenting the new moments and loving on their newest little blessing. They had the most beautiful soft accent which happens to be from South Africa. Baby Enzo is their little Christmas baby, born shy a couple of weeks from Christmas. Mom had brought the most adorable blanket and hat, wait till you see!
When there is an "older" sibling, I make sure to pay as much attention to them as their world has just turned upside down sharing mom and dad with someone else, but also give them their space to approach baby --or not-- and follow their lead and reaction. However, Abel was so sweet towards baby brother, but quickly turned to playtime with his cars and treats mom and dad had lined up for him. At the end he got a Santa pez and I asked him what was in it expecting him to tell me candy, but his reply was "sweeties" in such an adorable voice. Needless to say, here are the images of one of my favorite sessions of 2018!
