This is not the Bass family's first rodeo - Benjamin is their second child and second boy. Benjamin and brother Will will have years of playing together, wrestling, fighting, throwing the ball around, and one-on-one games. But for now, newborn Benjamin is all snuggles and sleep. It will all go by so fast though and that's why they hired me to capture those snuggles, tiny hands and feet, and the utter cuteness that comes with a fresh babe. I'll never tire of photographing these newbies because it wasn't too long ago that I was there with my three. It's so hard to remember but with images like these, they can take you back years from now.
I loved hanging out with parents Sarah and Max. We are all runners so we bonded over that. By the way, they both are running the Indy Mini in May this year. Let me repeat that - Sarah whom just birthed a baby in March is going to run a half marathon in early May. Now I consider myself hardcore but THAT is really hardcore. Go Sarah!
Anyway, Benjamin had beautiful dark hair, which mama loved. It's a stark contrast of Will who is a blondie. It will be interesting to see if Ben's hair changes or if it stays dark. I'm excited to see them again next year for some updated family photos for Ben's first birthday and Will's third birthday. As you can see, the final images from our session were of Will opening one of his birthday gifts. The boys share a birthday month!
Thank you so much to the Bass family for trusting me to capture this exciting time!
