I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. We were staring into the mirror, two faces side-by-side. Initially, 3 month old Atzly looked gently surprised but then broke in to his toothless smile. I smiled back at his sweet face in the reflection and when he saw me, he giggled out loud! I’d seen the trademark beaming smile during our session, but hearing his laugh was like music to my ears.
It was exactly the medicine I needed. Literally.
I had started the day with a migraine but I didn’t want to reschedule our meeting. Corinne arrived a minute or two early with adorable baby Atzly, immediately offering to let me hold him. Normally, I’m careful about holding new babies until their immune systems develop a little. It’s painful because I LOVE babies and I would always prefer to greedily grab them! But, Corinne was perfectly confident. I washed my hands and she handed him over.
It was a delight to visit with this awesome family again. We’d gotten to know each other when they came for pregnancy and newborn portraits with their first son, Zeb. Seeing them again, meeting Atzly, and witnessing how Zeb has grown was a total treat.
