Ashton and I go way back. I’ve been photographing his family since he was tucked away in his momma’s belly, waaaaaaay back in August (you can see those photos here if you’d like). At the time, his parents were full of anticipation for the arrival of their little guy, and Teresa was positively radiant – basketball belly and all. When I returned after Ashton’s birth to do his newborn photos, I suppose I expected to be greeted by a set of exhausted beginner parents (that’s how I would imagine I would be, after all). Instead, I was welcomed by Alex’s big smile and a sense of calm from Teresa that was even more becoming than a glowing pregnancy. It was as though they’d discovered the way life should be in the two weeks since Ashton’s birth.

We spent a lovely afternoon together capturing some of Ashton’s first moments (and of course, his precious, monogrammed onesies). Enjoy! xo
