Dwelling in the Now| Alexandria, Virginia Newborn Photographer

"Breathing in, I calm my body.  Breathing out, I smile.  Dwelling in the present moment, I know this is a wonderful moment. " ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Seeing first time parents enjoy their newborn baby might just be the most amazing thing to watch.   Its as if time stands still and all that we comprehend is happening right in front of us.  

Little toes, big yawns and soaking in each moment of firsts.

I adored meeting this little man - I was hoping to photograph his arrival into this world, but he couldn't seem to stay put until I returned back in town. Luckily though, he saved his first bath for my visit.  

He was so calm and gorgeous, I could stare at him all day!  Perhaps its because his mama is the owner of the awesome yoga studio in town -- he comes by his zen quite naturally.   

In case you remember meeting his big brother -- they are both enjoying getting to know each other.    They have this beautiful relationship of protection, excitement and big sloppy kisses.
