There is so much to say about this family but I feel that if I gush about them, you will surely think I am exaggerating and there is no way they are for real! Esther and Brandon are such beautiful, caring, strong, amazing family and I am grateful they let me in to photograph their new baby Jacob.
I have yet to meet a two-week old with more personality – his little sleep smiles, the way his deep blue eyes open up to the world, or the way he extends one of his tiny hands up over his head and gives a little fist bump. All perfect. We tried few styling poses but at the end my favourite images are the most natural. They capture the little things and expressions that are unique to him. Perhaps when he grows up, the parents will look at these portraits and say something like... look, you still make that expression sometimes! And this is what I love about portraiture – finding best ways to capture unique little things about a subject in front of me, no matter what their age it.
