It was your typical first-baby-is-epically-late delivery story. Poor Andrea was due a bit before I left for Thailand, but sweet little Aaric decided to hang in there until the very last second… finally emerging just before I left. OF COURSE. Fortunately for me, Andrea & Scott decided to wait until I got back to do his newborn portraits — a fact I couldn’t be more happy about since I cannot imagine a better way to go back to work than getting to snuggle with this little guy. Most people? In returning from a long trip they dread their inboxes and the stacks of paper on their desk. For me? I get to look forward to cuddling sweet sleepy little newborns. I mean, how lucky am I?
Another fun factor was that Andrea also had an assortment of meaningful props to incorporate — an authentic sheepskin brought from across the world by one of her close friends, a hand-embroidered blanket by a relative, and the cutest little baby yoda ears I have ever seen.
I present to you: newborn Aaric. 21 days old and perfectly perfect.
BABY FEET! Is there anything better?
