Welcome to the world, baby Javi! Portland Newborn Photographer

The simple things are also the most extraordinary things.
Paulo Coelho

Our documentary newborn session took place on Javi's second day on the outside. Javier is Emily and Eric's second child, their older daughter Elena was at home with her grandma waiting for her mom and dad to bring home her new baby brother. They were anxious to get out of there, but there were just a few last things to check off before they could get discharged. While I was there they played the ever-so-fun game of trying to get the baby to sleep so he could have his hearing test, but of course when he slept the tester wasn't available and then inevitably came in *just* as he woke back up! They headed home later that afternoon to begin their life as a family of four. I was honored to be invited into their room at St. Vincent Hospital in Portland, Oregon, to capture them focusing on their new baby boy.
