March 30, 2017 ~ Deep in the Heart of Texas ~ Newborn Session: Clark Viret 

Shooting this newborn session was a dream come true for me, because it was my very own nephew!
I teared up a few times shooting the little details, because it was my own history too,
and seeing prayers come to fruition meant more than I can say. We’re just so happy he’s here.

But apparently Baby Clark thought I was getting complacent in my newborn sessions,
and decided to throw me for a loop, instead of a calm 2 hour session, he stretched it into an all day affair,
with lots of snuggle time, swaddling, lullabies, music playing in the background, and really only settled
into the whole photography thing when his Daddy walked through the door that evening (go figure).

Still, they’re some of my favorite lifestyle baby pictures I’ve ever taken. So thanks, Clark, for pushing me. 😉

Introducing Clark, photographed at 10 days old. 

“When I meet you, when I meet you,
little darling, when I meet you,
all the grays will change to colors in my eyes.

When I meet you, when I meet you,
little darling, when I meet you,
all the colors lacking luster, they will shine.

One little heart and my whole world
starts to grow in wonder and grace.

I didn’t know I could love a soul
before I even knew their name.”

Watching my sister become a Mother is one of the most incredible things I’ve ever been privileged to witness.
Every tender touch, every baby cry heard and responded to, the softest and most gentle of voices to her little son.
Likewise, watching Ben become a Daddy has been the most natural and loving transition. Just as it should be.

They’re the sweetest little family, and I’m so honored to call them part of mine. I love them so much!
Welcome, Clark, you are so very loved and so very dear.
