This sweet baby is who we were waiting for at this maternity session. I don't often photograph newborns when they're awake because they're much harder to pose, but JD was ready to be awake at the end of our session and he seemed pretty content to pose for a few more, as you'll see at the bottom. It turns out that the Christmas Cactus you see in the last picture was given to Libby's dad when he was in the hospital and Libby has had it since he passed away almost 28 years ago. Libby told me that it has bloomed at Christmas time throughout the years, but that it hadn't bloomed for several years. It bloomed the week that JD was born. In March. I thought that was pretty amazing. The train in that picture belonged to Libby's grandfather.
