I first met this wonderful family for portraits on the beach in Naples last year. Not only was Xander one of the most adorable one year old’s I’ve ever photographed but dang, that little dude could FLY! To this day the image of Xander’s Daddy tossing him way up in the sky remains one of my all time favorites.
Needless to say, when Mom called me this year to let me know they were expecting baby number two and wondered if I’d be able to add them to the schedule for maternity and newborn portraits I think I hesitated for about .02 seconds before I said YES!! Now I happen to know that Mom has been waiting patiently for this sneak peek so first allow me to apologize, I would’ve had it on the blog sooner but gosh, I was really having a hard time deciding which images to share! Seriously, they are such dream clients to work with; beautiful, playful, loving and open to any of the crazy ideas that pop in to my head.
Alright, on to the portraits – Clearly Xander is just so eager to meet the newest member of the family that he can barely contain his excitement. <grin>
Seriously – how cute is he? He even stops to give the babe a kiss before going to ride his trike. Of course once we had Xander entertained it was time to give Mommy her turn in the spotlight to showcase what a beautiful woman she is, which, let’s face it, is sometimes easy to forget when you’re 7 months pregnant and chasing after a very busy two year old.
*whew* Okay, that was a lotta sneak peeking. Hang in there Mom, the best is yet to come!
