How sweet is baby Henrik?! This guy was so small. He was born just under 6 pounds, and although I regularly hold newborns, this little guy just seemed like the smallest! He was so good for his session, and decided he wanted to sleep the entire time we were together. He really didn't make a sound, and loved being snuggled in his big, soft blanket.
Henrik's dad is one of my best friend's brothers, and it has been so much fun to watch their family grow. In the past year they have added three little babes to their family, and I have had the pleasure of photographing all of them! Babies bring so much joy into life, and these three have brought so much joy to their family. I have loved getting to watch, and photograph, this exciting year for all of them.
The sweetest part of Henrik's shoot had to be watching his older puppy brother love and protect Henrik. Henrik's mom and dad said their little pup has served as Henrik's watchdog sine he arrived home from the hospital. They showed me pictures of the puppy standing close guard to his new baby during Henrik's first few days at home. He was no different in our pictures! The pup wanted to be up close in all of the family pictures. I can't stop smiling at the pictures where the puppy is covering Henrik in kisses and Henrik is laughing at it. I think these two are going to be close friends! Welcome to the world, little guy!
