My sparkly-eyed baby!

Well, 2 weeks ago today we had Paxton’s newborn photos done. Jeremy contemplated doing them himself. And I was fine with that. A little worried, but fine with it. I just didn’t want Holden to have these amazing newborn photos from a professional and then baby #2 get the shaft. Unbeknownst to me, Jeremy got in contact with a photographer and started getting Paxton’s newborn session all set up. She is a photographer that participates in Celebrating Adoption (which you adoptive families should really check out). But since we were calling last minute for a session, her CA sessions were filled up. But out of pure generosity, she still gave us an INCREDIBLE deal! I mean, incredible!! And she promised to do a Celebrating Adoption photo shoot in Texas this spring with our family. From my little research, each photographer that participates in CA has different “deals”. Sometimes a free sitting fee and pay for prints, or vice versa. If I understand correctly, her Celebrate Adoption deal is free. Period. Free sitting fee. Free edited prints on a CD. Wow! So that is what we have to look forward to in the spring. The session must be booked within the first year of the child’s placement. Anyways, so here is a little shout out for Art and Soul Photography. Angel did an amazing job with Paxton’s newborn photos. She also snapped a few of Holden and some of our family. I can’t wait to see them all! But she did share a sneak peak with us today. And of course I have to share it with you all. Just get a glimpse of my sparkly-eyed baby! I know you can do a lot with photo editing, but there truly is a sparkle in his little eyes. Click here to see some beautiful pictures of baby Pax.
