Wee bitty baby J | Savage, MN Family photographer

Only 23 hours young was this wee little lady when I got to meet her.  Still cozy in her hospital room...not necessarily where mom and dad feel cozy, but I think all parents agree at least a little, the awesome and surprising feeling you have when this tiny little being appears.  And the hospital and all who do their thing there, are a welcome safety net, ready at the push of the button to come and answer questions.  

But these parents are pros.  And this little peanut girl has a big brother who is so excited she is here.  They have waited so long for her to be here.  And you can tell they are already completely smitten.  Dad is already perfecting his bow and head band hair doing skills.  Because this little lady already had a head full of gorgeous locks.  

It was a rainy evening when I visited.  So the lights were dim and gave a different light to the pictures.  I think hospital photos are best in black and white.  Hospital rooms can tend to be so cold and un-cozy.  But settling down the colors you can focus on the moments, feelings, and the little beautiful girl.  

Not always happy, but quickly soothed. 

One of my favorite shots from their session is below.  It almost looks like she is laughing.  23 hours old and her eyes were so alert!  Not soon after she gobbled up dad's nose!  Those pictures are in their gallery.  

This is my other favorite picture.  The little toes...and the moment captured of mama nursing her hungry little girl.  It always amazes me how these new little people know how to eat.  And I would give anything to have a picture nursing just one of my kiddos.  It is such a special time that only happens for a certain chapter of your life.  At first, feeding your baby, by bottle or nursing, is how mamas and papas bond with their baby.  I love this capture.  

Two very happy parents will bring this gorgeous gal home and become a family of four.  Their life will now start to have specks of more pink, bows, tights, and tutus ...to go along with the blues, cars, dinosaurs, and guys that big brother S already colors their world with.   What an amazing gift it was to be there to capture these moments for them.  Congratulations Anna and Jared.
