Baby Zé {newborn portraits}

“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”

Sweet baby Zé was just that for me… he came in sleeping, was a champ and helped me create the most beautiful portraits with his parents, and then went on to rock the rest of his session! His mama brought such great things for his pictures. His nursery is decorated in a Dr. Seuss theme, and so the first picture you see below was quite fitting (and adorable!) She also brought a super cute bow tie and a hand-knit coccoon his Grandma made for him. Can you tell this is one loved little boy?!

Brianna and Tony, thank you so much for sharing your new blessing with me for a few hours!

Be sure to leave some love for Zé and his family (add a comment below) to help them win a free 8×10!

    Love, Love, Love these! He is so darling, just makes you want to pick him up and cuddle. I don’t know how Brianna and Tony ever put him down!

    Mandi thank you so much for capturing some of the most tender moments with Zé. We couldn’t be happier with the photos and they will be cherished forever. Each shot pulls at my heart strings and brings tears to my eyes. Thank you!

    OMG! Those have got to be the sweetest baby pics I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen thousands. Great job mom and dad for making this beautiful little guy, and to the photographer for catcing these moments forever. They grow so fast and in a few years you’ll forget what it was like when he was this tiny. Enjoy him and love him to pieces!

    That’s not possible. No one is that cute. My wife completely melted when she saw the bunny pics, so I have to go gather her up now. See you soon Zé.

    The baby pictures are absolutely adorable, I can’t stop looking at them. I know he’s my grandson, but is he cute or what! I love them all, those are really special moments with Dad and Mom. You both look so in love, enjoy!
