i have to say… there is something truly inspiring about watching brand new parents. their smiles are full of joy, even if they haven’t slept in days or weeks, they seem nervous and yet completely relaxed at the same time. i am having a hard time describing it, which is why i am glad i have a camera to do the talking for me. iratxe and hector were happy to welcome me into their home and introduce me to baby hodei. oh my goodness! he was so curious about the camera and kept looking at me. he stayed pretty calm throughout the photo shoot, even as we kept repositioning him and changing props. it was so great to be able to take his very first portraits and i hope i can keep taking them for years to come. congratulations!
