On September 21, 2015 at 6:57pm my wife and I were blessed with a beautiful, tiny baby girl we named Kiana Sophie. 5 pounds, 7 oz. 18 inches long.
The morning after her birth, I held Kiana against my bare chest and we watched her first Oregon sundrise from our window high up at the Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emmanuel in downtown Portland. (You can click on the images below to see larger versions).
And, of course, what kind of photographer-father would I be it I didn’t schedule a newborn session with my daughter? In fact, we scheduled many of them, and I did things to my poor girl that I swore I would never do before becoming a parent!
Like I made her wear some pretty silly hats…
And I made her pretty in pink.
Stuck her in a birds nest.
Propped her up in a basket.
and made her pose with our childhood stuffed animals.
If only the love we feel for this beautuful newborn baby girl could be described by a set of photographs.
