Just over a year ago I shot the wedding of Erika and Brenton Irving, a young, Godly couple very much in love. Now, a year and four months into their marriage they have been blessed with a beautiful, healthy baby boy they named Bently. Aside from being ridiculously cute and perfect, he may be a record-breaking size for the hospital he was born in; 10lbs4oz and 23 inches!! He didn’t fit into any newborn clothes or any size 0 diapers. He was born a full-grown man!
I have never seen a newborn baby so alert and curious about life. When you speak to him, he looks you square in the eye as if he completely understands what you’re saying. I was so happy to get to the hospital to photograph his first days of life surrounded by his family and again a few days later when he was home. He is the sweetest boy and was such a joy to photograph as he never cried and happily let me do what I wanted with him, which included lots and lots of snuggle time! Congratulations to the new mommy and daddy! Bently has been born into such a wonderfully, loving family!
