This newborn boy in Bernal Heights is all boy. He’s chunky, husky, and a total bruiser. Sometimes people have a hard time identifying the gender of a new baby when out and about. That won’t happen this little dude. He was born with all the masculine traits you can think of. I don’t remember how much the parents said he weighed but it was somewhere in the 8lb range. But he looks so much bigger! Like a little man.

This family was so fun to work with. They had told me ahead of time they were renting in Bernal Heights in San Francisco and weren’t happy with how their place looked. I let them know I’d find the area in their condo with the best light and we’ll shoot there. Shooting in smaller places is sometimes nice in suitutation such as this because it eliminates any eye sores or areas of the house that the parents aren’t fond of. But at the same time, it’s still sentimal because it’s the home where they brought their firstborn home and are raising him. That counts for something. And over the years it will continue to grow in value.

Like many of my families, a grandma was there to help with baby and was so delighted by everything he did. I love taking photos of the grandmas holding their newborn grandchildren because you can see all the years of experience come through. They’re so confident and sure about what to do. But that doesn’t compare to the love and excitement in the eyes about their greatest love – the new baby.
