Sweet Baby | Utah Newborn Photographer

This morning my always curious five year old asked me, "Mom, why is Pluto no longer a planet?" Yes, these are the kinds of things that he thinks about. His ceiling is covered in spray-painted Styrofoam balls (barely) resembling planets and stars. He's already declared that when he grows up he's going to be a "doctor astronaut" and I believe he could be if he wanted to be.

As parents we all have hopes and dreams for our children. We can't help it. We hope to positively influence their precious lives in ways that will help them to grow into someone unique, confident, and wonderful. But when each new life graces ours, little do we realize the life we hold in our hands will change our own so dramatically.

Maybe that's why I love photographing newborns so much. I hold in my own hands, if only for a few hours, the potential of a life that could change the world. And this sweet little guy was no different. I loved getting to spend time with not only him, but both his parents, an aunt, and his grandma! It was easy to see how loved he was and how he will be so goodly influenced by his family.
