What a beautiful baby newborn Cole was! He was just as sweet as can be, calm and content throughout his entire newborn portrait session. Considering that his Daddy’s deployment to Afghanistan with the Army was just around the corner, I expected the tension to be a little thicker, and Cole to be affected by it. I found the opposite to be true though. The family was more focused on relishing the moment, enjoying each other, and attempting to slow down the passing of time. I enjoyed spending time with them during their session, especially Cole and his older brother Connor. I can’t wait to watch these boys grow over the next year, while preserving memories as images to share with their Daddy away at war.
