Ankia Kate -- Newborn Photography

A few months ago I had the privilege of photographing
this sweet little baby girl, Anika Kate.
What a little doll!

There’s just nothing like a brand new baby.

God bless you and your little one,
Roman and Yvonne!
God is good!

Before the Leaves Come Out

The leafing of the trees has been put on hold in Virginia
by the reappearance of Winter this March. 
I like the trees without their leaves. 
True shapes – twisted and gnarled, just beginning,
straight and slim, or ancient and spreading –
the trees are vulnerable and real in the Winter.

And without leaves you can see what was. 
Last summer’s nests are visible.
Who knew there were so many nests,
 tucked away, so near and yet unseen?

We went on a walk on one of Winter’s tricky “Spring”
 days back in January. 
The objective of the stroll was to search for last year's nests.

 Kadence climbed to retrieve a nest.

 I’m not sure what kind it is -- I’m not very good at nest identification
(that’s my Mamma’s specialty.  Here’s a link to see her collection!)

Collecting Sycamore seed balls that are fun to crush
and scatter in the wind.

The beauty of what’s left bare on the Tulip Poplar trees
 after the seeds have long gone.

 Cassia has finally spied her first nest! 
It’s number ten on our walk.
 I’m guessing at this one being a Cardinal’s.

 This Kadi girl had toted her pen and notebook along
 and sat down every now and again to quickly sketch something. 
She does remind me of the girl I used to be!

"Let love be genuine. 
Abhor what is evil; 
hold fast to what is good."
Romans 12:9

Andrew Davis – Newborn Photography

Today I’m looking back on these 
precious pictures of my baby boy. 

So tiny.
So new to this world.
Everything unknown.
We watched him
 as though every squirm,
every unintended dimpled smile,
was something no baby had attained to before he came along. 

We know how quickly they grow,
how soon they change.
No longer wrinkled and new.
Every infant from the beginning of time,
did not stay an infant.
And yet we exclaim,
“See how he’s growing!”
“I can’t believe how he’s changing!”

It must be that life is a miracle.

Why else can we not wrap our minds around it?
Why else does it not cease to amaze us,
though we see it over and over?

“For this child I prayed; and the LORD
 has given me my petition which I asked of Him.”
 1 Samuel 1:27
