I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but my favorite face of 2013 wasn’t one of my Duders. Or my niece. Or even anyone in my family!
My favorite face of 2013 was baby Carter.
His Mama knew she wanted to try to make this portrait right from the start, and the result is just what we were hoping for!
We waited until the end of his session, when he was good and sleepy. We placed him in his Daddy’s hands, then waited patiently for that content expression. It’s such an honest representation of love and trust.
This portrait was featured on Carter’s birth announcement, enlarged & printed for display in the family home, and used in mini-album brag books.
I personally love this so much that it is the feature image on the landing page for my website, and the header on my Facebook page (link below if you’re interested).Really, for me, it doesn’t get any better than sleepy newborn faces.
I’m all done having babies of my own, but I love that my job allows me to snuggle and ogle over beautiful babies for the foreseeable future.
